I had been stayed at Xpress Room that had separated lift. Location is very accessible as it's close to KL Sentral monorail station and KL Sentral terminal. I have morning flight so stay at this hotel as hassle free to leave early to airport. There are good restaurants around the hotel and Little India is like 7 minutes walking. Also... More

This hotel sells their cheaper standard rooms as superior rooms to on-line customers. Only difference is that the standard rooms are located to lower floors up to 5th floor. The hotel manager claimed that on-line customers are getting the superior rooms in lower floors and only the customers who are making booking at the counter are getting superior rooms from... More

This hotel is located next to the KL Sentral, a big transport interchange and shopping center; importantly for the traveler, this is where the excellent high speed train from the airport stops. I stayed for 4 nights and thought the hotel excellent value for money. Room has all the usual amenities, FREE WiFi worked well. Room kept clean by the... More

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
