I booked via agoda and its cheaper than walk in. Request for queen size and they said it is fully booked. My fren booked from agoda for the same room with queen size and its available. Doorbell boy very friendly. Security also very good. Always monitor parking lot. Stayed at room 1313 and sunrise every morning is nice. Less noise.... More

This hotel is in a good location if you need to connect to somewhere, like for me, the airport. Other than that it is just a place to sleep, no frills whatsoever. It is clean enough to sleep in but it is tight and too bare to spend anytime in. I believe it is one of those govt run hotels... More

Clean rooms. Value for money. Located right opposite one of the main transportation hub, its location is golden. That being said, you'll definitely hear some road bustle within the rooms. Other than that, its pretty much average. Did not expect world class facilities / decor. I know what I was paying for.

Overall good hotel. It has a good location, fair breakfast, clean rooms and fast check in/out. There is no view because the train track is covering most of it but the central station is just 2 streets away and you can see the glittering Petronas Tower from afar.

The Hotel was a bit seedy, grubby halls and carpets, but the room was OK. EXCEPT that the AC was very dry and smelled of cigarette smoke all night. Too hot and stuffy to turn off and very uncomfortable on. Close to the Central Station for convenience, but the area was run down and not a place I felt comfortable... More

Location: Central and close to main transport options (monorail and to Sentral Station), which means easy access for transportation to the airport. Food: Good options for breakfast (including for vegetarians)., Great eating around the area, as well - cheap and clean. Room standard was adequate and satisfactory for my purposes - clean, safe and quiet. Room service to clean and... More

Rooms are quite small, but it's a good location, 5 minutes walk from the central station. The area is a little seedy with the odd brothel close by, but there is also good food places. I'd stay here if you are staying in KL for a short while and need to catch the train to the airport in the morning.

We stayed at K L Sentral Hotel at Kuala Lumpur during Christmas vacation 2014. It is one of the good hotels I have stayed. It is fairly a big hotel conveniently situated at a central point, a few yards from the K L Central railway station, which is the easiest way to commute. The rooms are spacious , clean with... More

Stayed one night in January 2015. The staff was nice and polite and the room tidy and spacious for a budget-style accommodation. There wasn't much noise from the street at night. When heading towards any part of KL, the hotel is ideally located rigth next to the main transportation hub, KL Sentral.
