Very strategic location, near a lot of shopping district and food area such as jalan Alor, only short walking distance, a bit old buildings, but clean and nice, we got a huge room here, recommended. Price also reasonable

I ended up in KL in the early morning of 3am and I was glad to be able to check in early with no fuss and the wifi was awesome. No complicated user id or passwords. This hotel has fantastic location at competitive pricing, good for people who are not fussy about amenities and age. Only problems, not enough power... More

After reading lots of reviews I was a little apprehensive about staying here but we really couldn't fault the place. Yes, the rooms are a little outdated but our room was large & clean with good WiFi. We... More

Booked online for 3 days 2 nights. Checking in was a breeze. Close to everything; malls, restaurants and public transportation. The kids enjoyed the pool. It's a seasoned hotel but the Merdeka Wing we stayed is a refurbished unit. Cleanliness was ok. Carpet a bit stained probably because it was a 'smoking unit'. Parking is at the Lowyat Plaza. I...
