Stayed there for 2 nights . The rooms were superbly comfortable , the shower was great . I travelled by coach and i reached super early so i walked slowly to the hotel from pudu bus terminal and the receptionist was kind enough to let us leave our baggage with them first . Good service . Good location too !!

We stayed there for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. Great location and excellent view. They had water dispenser in every floor and a great security system. We booked 3 rooms. The rooms were clean and average sized. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. Definitely will be our first preference whenever visiting kualalampur.

Only stayed for 2 nights, but this inexpensive boutique hotel was comfortable with good sized rooms with aircon. The staff are very helpful and the owner/manager loves a chat. There is fresh drinking water available from water coolers on every floor. Hotel is close to everything, with food and shopping and monorail only hundreds of metres away. I would recommend... More
