We booked through travel agent. The history of this hotel is amazing. The location is close to everything. I went on a shopping holiday with my mum and stayed for 10 nights. Our room was a twin with all the aminities we needed. Housekeeping missed a few things but a quick call fixed it. We also misunderstood the air con... More

Staff in reception was the best when explaining to me the room type compare to 4-6 hotel I survey before choosing this hotel. Location is superb, room service is fast, staff well trained Maybe they can extend open the swimming pool 7am-9pm and the breakfast at 8 floor to open same as the 1st floor.

The hotel is situated right smack in the middle of the prime shopping location of KL, with shopping centres like Berjaya Times Square, Sungei Wang Plaza and Lot 10 nearby. There is also a bus stop within walking distance of the hotel where you can board a free shuttle bus to the Petronas Towers, so you practically don't have to... More

We three friends stayed here for 3 nights on our way to Langkawi and another 3 nights on the way back again. We give 10/10 for the friendly caring staff, from check in at reception to breakfast staff in the dining room to the staff that clean the rooms and make our beds...they were all fantastic. This hotel is in... More

Decent hotel, nothing flash. Make sure you take your confirmation with you to the hotel. We had an issue with not having a balcony in our room even though it was in the booking, but they fixed that up fairly quickly for us. Breakfast is OK. Great location, only about 10 minute walk to Pavillion shopping centre. 45 min drive... More

Prior to my arrival in KL the Trip Advisor's reviews of Hotels in the City enabled me to make an informed choice on my accommodation options for my planned 10 night stay in this amazing City and I could not have been more pleased with that choice. I arrived off a late flight into KL in mid-August and right from... More

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.

Positives: + Extremely convenient location. Its right next to malls like Low Yat Plaza and Sungei Wang, and very close to Times Square and Pavilion. 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...
