I normally travel through hostels and dorms but landing in a new city I decided to go with the hotel as an upgrade. Great location and clean with good facilities, my only negative is that the room I was in was a smoking room so had a strong odour to it, they tried to air freshen the room for me, but I would reccomend to those staying in the area

In the heart of very busy china town clean rooms good wifi good price but watch out for the government add ons tourist tax do they want us too come here !!! Ten ringits per night and local tax 7 percent spot put 38 ringits on my bill and if I did not like it leave

The hotel is in the best location and directly in China town. The staff is so unfriendly. There's a 24 hour reception which is helpful. The room stinks is small and has no window. The blanket wasn't clean.

I arrived in the morning to check into the hotel (my paperwork said that it was available from 07:00) to be told to come back by some grumpy bloke on the front counter.....check in after 2, check in after 2 as he pointed at the sign. I get that check is normally after 2, as it is most places in the world. It was the way i was told! So I come back at 14:45, got my key (great I thought finally I can have a shower and relax). Got into the room to find that it hadn't been cleaned. Now I don't know what animal lived in there, but lets say it stunk of rotten bananas. The bin was overflowing and heaved in a pile about 2 feet. I go down and say to the lovely girl (who was very pleasant on my arrival) that the room isn't clean. The grumpy man asked if I could wait another 15 minuets, which I did. I approached the desk again after about 20 minuets only to be told to come back in half hour. I said that this is not on and could I have another room. the grumpy man got grumpier and we had a stand up argument. I told him that he was rude and asked for my money back, to which he did. I will never book at this Hotel again

The best thing about the hotel is its location ! Its in the heart of the busy Chinatown of Kuala Lumpur. you wont have to go anywhere to have a sumptuous dinner or to buy things from famous hawkers market of Chinatown. So many eateries here and there around the place. They are open till midnight ! People all over the world roam around buy things having their cup of tea or dinner ! The place so busy with life. Now, about the hotel, Hotel is very clean no doubt, they change bed linen everyday. Cleaning staff are very good. They provide drinking water for free. You get wifi service moderately good. Reception lounge in spacious and you can spend few hours sitting in couch placed there, well decorated place no doubt. Bad thing about the hotel is that most of the rooms are without windows !! Few have very tiny window. As per their statement they have only two room with big windows. You may feel quite confined if you stay for longer period or spend most of the time in hotel rooms. But for our case we stayed 2 full days, mostly roaming outside, so we didn't feel that problem! We can reach the hotel very easily from any bus terminus. You need to reach the Petaling street. But you have to walk few steps with your luggage if you reach there after afternoon, Because the road in front of the hotel gets occupied by hawkers, leaving no space for a car to get in! In our case we found the receptionist little rude. We found our toilet commode faulty, When we reported it to her she looked annoyed! As if we were at fault. However she arranged another room but that room was without any window. However our overall experience was good.

Location is good for the Market however, the room is very basic and worn, it was quite expensive for what it was but we only stayed for a couple of nights so it was fine. Room cleaned everyday by staff with fresh towels etc but seemed like more of a hostel than a hotel in terms of the standard.

We stayed here with our family and really loved it, clean ,friendly staff and very central . Would definitely stay again . We use to stay at a hotel up the road ( swiss ) but this is half the price cleaner newer and much more friendly staff . Thanks

Traveling for many moons thro out Asia this was far the BEST room for our budget in Malaysia Spot less rooms , great receptionist s answered all our needs Room cleaned every day by wonderful cleaning staff Wi-Fi good Best shower we have experienced in all of Asia All private bathrooms which can be difficult to find in Malaysia Very comfy beds Very quiet considering your in the middle of Chinatown Location few minutes from train station and the bus station very close only 12 ringets to airport Can't speak night enough of this hotel

Thr hotel is well located for those coming from the airport by shuttle bus. But with almost no dining options around, you have to walk. Exactly on Petaling Street, so to find the hotel, make sure you walk behind the stalls. For one or two nights it is ok. All rooms and bathrooms are tooo tiny and very basic with no amenities. That's what you got in KL for cheap prices. The hotel also offers nothing besides lift and wifi, very basic. For booking with low rates, I suggest contacting the hotel, asking for a discount code and booking directly on their website. Card payments require an extra fee.

Got a Superior Triple room - a queen and a single for about S$34 per night. Expect only the bare necessities - bed, v small tv, small toilet with shower, no windows (no noise from night market) and wifi. Centralised air-con - pretty cold for my room on the 4th floor. Day and night market right at doorstep. Day market starts as early as about 8am and the road is closed when the night vendors roll in. Expect lots of imitation products (sports shoes, sportswear, etc). Do bargain. Food stalls just right around the corner. Most noodles / porridge cost about RM$5-10. Supermarket nearby as well.
