The Hotel is in a great location if you want to be near a China Town. There are several great places to eat and easy to get a cab if you want. The decor is being updated thought the carpets are dated. Bed was comfortable and the room had plenty of space. Breakfast is ok but served luke warm and... More

the room I got was nice, and Twin Tower can be seen from afar. even it's located in chinatown but the lobby is kind of quiet. they provided in-room wifi but it's weak and slow. what I hate is the air conditioner was too noisy. the breakfast was standard and nice. I visited this hotel around March 2014.

In the centre of China town, near metro. Rooms are ok, good shower and free WiFi. 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

Lobby was clean and quiet through our 2-day stay. check in was a tad slow but bearable. bathroom was cleaned well with 2 bottles of head-to-toe wash. bath towels and a floor mat supplied were clean too. we were given a room on the 7th floor facing Chinatown. not much sounds from the streets below. sounds from the aircon's fan...

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
