I've stayed here in previous years. The rooms are basic, but functional. I love the location, near LRT and great local food (nasi kandar, various Indian), but some might dislike the fact that access to the entrance is through narrow passages between the tourist-market stalls, and there are stairs to mount before entering. Also, note the following: if you are on the north side, you will be woken early by the muezzin's call to prayer from the next-door Masjid (mosque) India: a disturbance, perhaps, or else part of the location's cultural experience, take your pick. Also, and in contrast to rooms exposed to outside sound, many of the rooms are in the building's central part, and have no windows but are a bit quieter. Staff were reasonably helpful, breakfast was much improved from previous years' visits. The wireless Internet in the room went out for a few days after a big rainstorm, though the lobby's hotspot remained accessible. This is a decent, basic hotel, worth it if you get one of the lower room rates.
The location was good for me as tourist, however, many items in the room were falling apart. When I unaggresively unpluged my computer charger from the wall, the entire socket cover; it was not screwed into the wall correctly. The shower head on the hand shower popped off suddenly during use because the glue holding it in place gave out. The staff took days to come and clean the room. When they came, they got the drain plug in tne sink stuck, and we had to pry it out to drain tne dirty water. Carpet was old and dammaged. Bed sheets and matresses were stained. The food was good.
The maid didn't even come once to clean our room. I had to call for toilet paper because they just left us one roll. The rooms are so small that me and my wife could hardly move in there. The neighborhood is dirty and full of drug addicts. Taxis won't even go there. Poeple stay away from that trap. I am not sure where the 3 starts came from
we had a pleasant stay. the hotel is close to everything. a very good place if you are looking for a good budget type accommodation. The staff are really friendly and helpful.
When you travel to a city like KL, you don't go there to sit in your hotel, all day, you go to see the city, experience, the people, culture, food, shopping, etc. At the end of the day you want a safe place to rest, clean up, cool off, check email/facebook, unwind, sleep and even repack for further adventures. The Citin Hotel Masjid Jamek was perfect for that. Even if one of us were to have ended up not feeling well and having to stay at the hotel for a better part of the day, thought this was not our experience, it would have been fine. The staff were kind and helpful as well. Our room was missing towels and they rectified the situation in a relatively timely manner. The breakfast buffet in the morning was simple, suited for more of a Malaysian preference, rice, noodles, and so on but also offered cereal, toast, juice & coffee & tea. I saw a few bugs, mosquitoes, and a small roach or ant near the food, but I figured that it was impossible to avoid all of that. The location of the hotel was pretty convenient to many sites we wanted to see, since it is located in a market area, it is somewhat challenging to enter the hotel or see the main entrance easily, fortunately there is relatively good signage so we found out where to go relatively quickly. This is a great budget hotel option, I'd stay here again.
This hotel is very clean, with a great and helpful staff, and a decent breakfast in the morning. Free wireless Internet in the rooms and Internet stations downstairs as well. Definitely spring for a higher degree of room if possible, because that is the only way you will get a window. No real views to speak of, but I personally prefer the window to not. The location is awesome as well--right in the middle of Little India, and a bazaar and numerous tasty restaurants are easily within walking distance. There are also western restaurant chains nearby for families, and shopping plazas that contain almost everything imaginable. Finding the front door the first time is a little difficult because it is hidden behind some bazaar booths, but I quickly grew to like it. Easy walking distance to the nearest LRT station, and cheap taxi to the airport or train station.
