Casa Lagenda is a 2-3 star budget hotel, and any expectations one may have as to the quality of its rooms must be tempered by this fact. However, what I got for only RM68 per night (double room), far exceeded my own expectations of what a Malaysian budget hotel should offer. Among the pleasant surprises, typically associated with a 4-5 star property:
- Free wifi internet in rooms
- TV with Astro satellite channels, including HBO, Cinemax, Astro Ria, Astro Supersports
- A fridge stocked with reasonably priced soft drinks (RM2 per can)
- Free coffee & tea making facilities
- House-brand shower gel and shampoo
- Professional check-in and check-out: pre-signed credit card slip torn in front of you upon checkout, detailed invoice & receipt folded neatly in an envelope.
RM68 is half of what you'd pay at some of the famous budget-hotel chains, which lack many of the above amenities. Casa Lagenda offers no breakfast, but there are a variety of restaurants and coffeeshops within close walking distance. There is also a mall nearby with a Starbucks, KFC, Pizza Hut and cineplex, as well as a Tesco.
I stayed for 1 night on business. The hotel well-suited my needs, as my event was being held in Lagenda Heights, where the hotel is situated. Add to that the areas's close proximity to the Sungei Petani Utara toll exit, and you have the perfect location. There is plenty of parking on the streets - in the daytime, parking is chargeable at RM0.60 per hour from 0830-1730. Reception sells the Sg Petani Municipality parking coupons for this purpose.
On the downside, the room is very small, with an even smaller bathroom (see my photos). Also, the furniture and fittings seem a bit worn, but still usable.This may not be the place for a family holiday, but as a comfortable pad for a good night's rest, it is excellent.
