Changed our flights and had to book a convenient hotel. Location is good, very very close to KL Sentral and little India. Easy to get to central markets and other tourist spots. Think we may have been a tad unlucky the night we stayed, there was a ritual going on right outside our window, drums banging and chanting until 1am.... More

I stayed at the Hotel Sentral for one night and booked the cheapest room. I was surprised to actually get a window room! The room was clean, although not new. The bed was comfy, the bathroom big enough. I had a good night, there was a bit of noise during the day due to constructions nearby but nothing too bad... More

Kuala Lumpur is the center and a gate to many places and activities around Malaysia and Southeast Asia. This hotel is probably the one of the best value at the best location in the center of KL. It's just a minute away from monorail and a few more steps, you're in KL Sentral Station. A lot of good food and... More

Best part, a few steps away from the monorail and a couple more from Sentral Station. I don't particularly like the environs though as it was a little in the back street. Rooms were big and clean enough but nothing fancy, just everything that you need for a comfortable stay. Buffet breakfast was just okay. I would recommend for people... More

We chose this hotel simply because we had to fly next day early morning from KLIA. It is very close to all the major transport systems in KL including mono rail, buses and trains so its not too difficult to get to the airport from the very early hours of the morning. Located in Brickfields which is an indian (Tamil)... More

Less than 3 mins walk to Monorail. Near bus and train transport hubs, just cross the main street and pass through NU SENTRAL mall. Price is just right. Buffet breakfast is okay, but i'm not sure if the chef missed to add salt to the scrambled egg. Room size is just right. Aircon is working fine, and really cold. Hot... More

I checked in to Hotel Sentral sometimes in February 2014. The check in service was efficient as my booking was made three days before my arrival. I got a room on the 12th floor. Basic amenties provided in room. The room was ok. Breakfast served on the fifth floor. I can say is pretty good for a 3 star hotel.... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 days and found to be a good one, neat and clean.The staff at counter is courteous and helpful. Though the check in time is 12pm, they do give rooms if you reach early without charging extra money. The buffet breakfast has a menu that caters all tastes, western and local whch is open... More

This budget hotel suits our requirement for a few hours overnight stopover. The Nu Sentral Shopping mall is newly opened so was a bonus. The hotel location is pretty handy to the Monorail from airport. In fact we could have walked to the hotel but when we arrived we were not sure of the location so took a taxi which... More
