We had the opportunity to sample a hotel in Sibu during Le Hubby's business trip a couple of weeks ago.

While Sibu has thrived in many ways, one aspect of Sibu that has yet to catch up is their hotel establishments.

Most of the hotels in Sibu are still hanging on to the dated decor and facilities from my observation of the hotel room photos in booking websites. Therefore, it is not surprising to me upon seeing the room in Paramount Hotel.

Dated furniture are still the main theme of the room

There is a slight upgrade in the room - the flat TV instead of the bulky TV

The bathroom

The kids take pleasure in this bathtub

The carpet looks new and perhaps save the day

But what the hotel lacks in terms of aesthetics, it made up in terms of its cleanliness. Nothing is more dreadful than an old, mouldy hotel. However, Paramount Hotel while is yet to spot the modern contemporary design one should hope, it is very clean and well-maintained.

There is also ample parking space in front of the hotel, however it is not free on weekdays as the parking lot does not belong to the hotel. Since we stayed during weekend, we need not pay for the parking.

The generous portion of its special fried rice

Overall, it is an average hotel which will perhaps do better if the hotel management is willing to invest in modernising the hotel look.
