I arrived on 24th May, quite smooth when I checked in. That time I arrived at break fast time, so I only have a quick chat with front office. I didnt manage to ask about my sahur arrangement.

After my break fast and meeting, i go to reception and ask regarding my sahur arrangement. But that time the guy a bit rude to me (i forgot his name). I ask him how is the sahur, and he said that i only entitled for 1 pax. (Im want to add another pax). He not even looking at me and say that if i want sahur just come down at restaurant at 3.45AM, but 1 pax only.

I ask him i want to add another one. He keep mention that i only entitled for 1 (which i totally understood that, i just want to buy another 1). I end up, not go for sahur at Istana.

Overall the hotel is good, except for him!

They shocked me with the news that breakfast isn't included and asked me to pay 63 ringet per person for it. And my bathroom water was brown causing my wife allergies and the hotel did nothing about it .

Dear heunikl,

Thank you for staying with us and for posting your review on Trip Advisor. Firstly i would like to apologize for all the inconvenience that you experienced during your stay with us. I had attempted to reach you via email to explain on your breakfast and water condition. Nevertheless, please find our investigation. For your breakfast, your reservation was made via an online agent that did not include breakfast in your package. I apologize if this was not tactfully communicated to you. For the water supply, there was a emergency repair conducted by the water utility company 8pm that night, hence the yellowish water which lasted for 5 minutes, throughout the hotel.
Please be assured that we have reviewed and corrective measures had been put in place.
I hope you will give us another opportunity to regain your faith and please do not hesitate to contact me directly for any assistance

Thank you.

Yours sincerely

Gavin Rupert
Executive Assistant Manager

it's the second time that we have choosing isthana for our stay. Must say this time they have made our stay even more attractive. I would like to mention a situation.... The pool was supposed to be closed for maintenance..but as we requested them to keep the pool open for the kids as they were very much excited...they have opened the pool for us and rescheduled the maintenance...I don't think a huge hotel will ever do that for the customers..
