Breakfast is ok, nothing special or fancy with limited range of "items": for the sweet-tooth - only one type of jam, nothing else. Interior of rooms are old: could need some TLC. No tea in room, only coffee. Air conditioning present, but comes with... More

Booking and check in seamless and fast checkout was also very efficient. Housekeeping was fast and kept the room clean and tidy. Breakfast buffet has continually been consistent. The Nasi Lemak is sensational. Also eggs are cooked on the spot. The location is second to none, close to Tang City Food Court as well as busses, taxis and trains. We... More

The Hotel is situated at China Town, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Booked through Airasia Go along with return Flight Tickets, the Hotel was found to be quite comfortable for our familial stay. Best rooms with finest stay comfortabitity. But being vegetarian, we were somewhat uncomfortable to search for a vegetarian restaurant there. Taxi arrangements by the Hotel on reasonable hiring charges... More

the hotel expect high return on investment from walk-in guests. we booked as walk-iin guest price with definitely higher than internet rate, why should hotel doing this? make any sensce? Please bare in mind that if you are walking guest don't expect to use their wifi to check rate, they will not allow absolutely. so worst.!

Located at the heart of China town, the hotel boasts great access to key points of the city. The price is reasonable, and i believe it will be hard to find such deal elsewhere. The hotel is well maintained, very clean. China town will run through late night, and it will be great to take a walk tour. You won't... More

Hotel staff confirmed wifi is available in room and good as what we have mentioned earlier during check in. But actually is worst. Bedsheets bad smell, A gentle remind! Do not trust... More
