Had one of the superior rooms in the 10th floor. The room had a nice layout, but they lacked a lot in the finish. Parts of the wall were spackled but not repainted yet and there were a lot of dust on everything higher than 1,70 meter. Like the shower head, on top of the tv etc. Everything below this... More

I'm not staying yet, but i was visiting to book. Before visiting, i have check the price from agoda, its say rm98/day. The i ask the front office on the same day, they say rm 180/day. Holy potato!, almost double price. So you guys don't bother to check in via hotel, compare via online agoda/other :) Just share.

We have stayed here many times and are very happy with each stay. The location is ideally located to Monorail, Taxis & Buses. The Hop On Hop Off Bus has a stop at the front of the hotel. Try food at Tang City food court around the corner.

It was a good hotel, I got a 1 person room. It had everything I needed, bathroom was really clean and good. The place is great, walk out the door, cross the street and you enter Jalan Petaling, Chinatown. Most things are in walking distance or 5 - 10 minutes cab. Great! The building is really high so you can... More

Coming through KL for one night we decided after our stay at Hotel Sentral a few nights before we would try out something in China town. After reading several mixed reviews we thought the 5 elements would be good for us at just over £30/ night and a more central location m. I don't expect much for that price and... More

We found this to be a decent budget hotel to stay. To make it simpler, here is the rating scale (on a scale of 5): 1. Location: 5/5. Centrally Located in the busy Chinatown. A blessing for all the shopping freaks. UTC bus terminal close by. All the big food chains are close by and also great roadside dining options.... More
