UUM HOTEL

UUM HOTEL 2 minutes from UUM main entrance



The above average room


One of my favourite area , the lobby with free internet facilities for guest


Rahimi and Widad...enjoying the stay

I was in UUM few months back for a seminar and decided to stay in EDC a 3 star Hotel operated and own by Universiti Utara Malaysia. Since it's near to weekend I've decided to bring my family together.

It's been more than 10 years since I've graduated fro this University and for UUM to have its own Hotel was quiet an achievement. I still remembers those days where the nearest Hotel from the university is Hotel Changloon which is more to a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel.

For RM 130 per night I should say it's a 4 star experience with a 3 star budget and the kids really love the Hotel famous chicken chop. The room is above average (for a 3 star hotel) and I really love the hotel lobby especially the free Internet facilities for guest.

One item that is missing is the swimming pool and if UUM plans to upgrade the facilities probably swimming pool should be one of the highest priority item.

You are absolutely correct ...i still remember the "van sapu" that we used to take going to pasar malam changloon and all the other stuff being a part of anewly setup university. Hotel changloon is now a well established sea food restaurant ....
