Rooms are average. Nothing outstanding here. More like outdated. They will only provide soap and bottled shampoo. I was in Standard room without breakfast. Good thing is within walking distance to shops and eateries. For a minimal budget with family this would be recommended. Clean bed sheets and towels. Basic needs available but most importantly fast, free and reliable wifi.... More

Hotel has a great location, just walking distance to Bukit Bintang, the epicentre of nightlife in KL. I booked the place online for just 2 nights and to sum it up the value for money ratio is just okay. When I entered my room I had to figure out that the window just pointed to a very narrow light channel... More

Great central location for shopping, reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We were given a quiet room for our comfort. Ask for non smoking. No disturbances. Pool was lovely too.

This hotel may be a bit in a need of refurbishing. But for us it was as good as any other. Nice and friendly staff. We liked it so much so we even went back to the same hotel for another stay after our trip to Mabul Borneo. So first 2 nights and a week after another 3 nights. The... More

So I may be too naive but I was not expecting a hotel where people are allowed to smoke and contaminate the whole ventilation system regardless of everyone else. But that's the way it is. When I booked this hotel I didn't know there were non-smoking.floors and was automatically given a smoking one. Some two hours in the room triggered... More

I stayed in the superior. The room is comfortable but bed is hard. The inner rooms do not have noise but also no view. Service and cleanliness is excellent. I have not tried the food. TV has very few channels so I watch BBC all the time. WIFI is strong, a must for me.

Upon arrival at hotel lobby, it was very crowded with guests at reception counter, suprisingly, the check in procedures... More
