Arrived from Australia and stayed there for a week. Location is not good. Had to walk 5 minutes to get to my room from reception. Rooms were a big disappointment, towels were ran down and dirty. I got dirty towels every day. But that's not ye worst part ! I left this hotel with bed bug bites and scabies !... More

We had just breakfast in the hotel and it was good. The hotel is near to Ampang Mall which has got a lot of... More

Pictures and description was a bit misleading to what it was. Stayed for 2 nights our first nights in KL. Booked it cause it said KL City center on booking.com. Which turned out to be a 15 min taxi drive to get to city, not what we were after. No alcohol served at hotel, which we probably shouldn't have expected,... More

There was no breakfast included when we booked the room. The room itself was okay with a king sized bed. The bed was extremely hard. And the... More

The price is not that expensive and affordable. The staffs' services varied,I have met one or two not-so-helpful staffs before,especially when I did a late check-in around... More
