A friend from outside Pahang booked me a room for a few days here for emergency use; unfortunately this friend of mine is not familiar with Kuantan area and when she asked the guesthouse about the location, they just say yes to everything she thought about this place including that the guesthouse is near to the hospital (it is too far from HTAA but of course la too near to KMC but im not rich and i wasnt going to KMC). She wasnt aware that this guesthouse is far from the central area of Kuantan town and when I called the guesthouse for the location because i myself is not living in Kuantan/is not from Kuantan, the reception herself failed to give me the right direction to get there. Twice i missed the entrance to the hidden housing area of this guesthouse and i needed to turn around the town quite far to get back to Indera Mahkota in order to get here. The truth is Bukit Ubi area is too near to Indera Mahkota rather than the Kuantan town itself. if you have stuff to do in Indera Mahkota this is the right place to stay but not if you have to attend some intensely emergency stuff in the town of Kuantan.
Horribly, during one of the December rainy dark nights i encountered a group of basikal lajak kids racing down from the flyover on the Bukit Ubi flyover and THAT WAS THE WORST NIGHTMARE TO ANY DRIVER going up the flyover! certainly the flyover is not safe to drivers because one of these reasons! (oh yes you need to cross this flyover if you came from Kuantan to get to the housing area where the guesthouse situated).
The room - at first night it was comfortable completed with towels, clean room and bed and sheets and bathroom, aircond and fans, but since it situated on 1st floor and the need to climb some long steps to get up there, i decided not to bring along the senior citizens which i need to take care of. The room was too cold during rainy days and unfortunately the towels i used wont dry at all even i hanged them all day long. On the 2nd day my body started developed some skin rashes and it got worst till the last day i stayed there. After days having to suffer the burning itchiness, I got an injection from a private clinic nearby and the private doctor mentioned about my skin unsuitable to the environment inside the guesthouse.
At night you can hear the stray dogs howling so loud around the housing area and please be careful if you driving at night and unable to find a safe parking inside the guesthouse. Because disturbing stray dogs in pack can be found around this area and this happened to me during all nights i went to get some sleep here.
