This hotel is in the heart of the Golden Triangle (of shopping fame) but it doesn't cost the earth - the rooms are clean and perfect for what you need in a shopping and restaurant center - they're not luxurious, but rooms are very clean and the service is great and you get really really good value for money.

Imbi monorail station is very close too. + The beds are comfortable. + Staff are polite and friendly. + Check in process was fast (probably because we arrived way after the check-in hours). + Free...

The photo's on the website are nothing like the Hotel itself. The foyer is about the only area that has maintained it's style. The room had stained carpet, the bathroom has soap scrum in the bath, the toilet looked like it hadn't been cleaned. The sheets had stains on them. The room was located at the side of a nightclub...

the location of this hotel was great!! extremely central - just walk out of the hotel and right in the middle of restaurants, shops, currency exchange. Low Yat mall directly behind the hotel and directly across the road is a short cut alley way (used by everyone) to Jalan Alor. Approx 30 mins walk to China Town (pentaling st) and... More

Don't go there. This is really a disgusting place. When we checked in, the sheet had a bloodstain on it. When I told about it, they send up housekeeping, no excuses were made. Housekeeping told us to wait for 15 minutes then they would change the sheets. That was fine by us. We also had to wait for an hour... More

I have stayed in many hotels in and around Bukit Bintang area and can honestly say there are better hotels for the price. This hotel has a great location, right in the heart of Bukit Bintang but this is also it's downfall. Rooms on the city side are very noisy from the night clubs next door and the music thumps... More

I moved here after few nights elsewhere in KL to be nearer the centre, and found it to be a very acceptable hotel, yes a little tired and could do with a major refreshment, but it still retains some of its neo-colonial past - which I quite enjoyed. Room was a good size, clean, comfortable bed, plenty of hot water... More
