Hotel Sri Iskandar doesn’t look much from outside, but enter the foyer and you will find a sweet and friendly budget hotel.

Sri Iskandar provide twin, double and family rooms all with air-con, but not all with windows. Windowless rooms are the same price, so check first.

Simple rooms are small, but cosy, clean and comfortable. Rooms are painted a tasteful neutral and a striped brown-toned panel behind the bed gives definition to an otherwise bland room. Tiny framed photographs make it a little more homely. Beds with white linens are bouncy and snug. There are no bedside lamps, but light switches are easily reached from bed. A built-in shelf serves as a desk with a stool and the flatscreen TV has satellite channels. Other than the bed, there’s very little space, so you wouldn’t want to spend too much time in the room, but it’s great for a good night’s sleep. The ensuite bathroom with hot-water shower is spotless with modern facilities, but also small. There’s a small space for toiletries, but the room will get quite wet as there’s no shower curtain. If you prefer more space, family rooms are considerably larger.

WiFi is included, and an iron and ironing board are available on request. They also provide a laundry service. Hotel Sri Iskandar is in an excellent location in Kampung Air, five minutes’ from Gaya Street and 10 minutes’ to the waterfront. Breakfast is not provided, but plenty of options lie right outside the door. Staff are welcoming too. Sri Iskandar is a good flashpacker choice, and not bad for families on a budget either.
