Old traditional hotel with modern amenities and a formal feel. There is a new Merdeka wing. Stayed 2 nights, arrived on New Year's Eve.

I've stayed here several times over the years. It seems they always have some type of construction going on. I always book the same type of room but I never know what I'm going to get until I walk into the room. And now, there is major construction all around the hotel as the city is building an underground subway.

Clean bathrooms and great value for money. Towels seemed a little old, but can live with it. Room spacious enough. Best part about it... More

This hotel has a perfect location in the main tourist hub of KL and all staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are just looking a little tired and shabby. For the price and location I would stay here again.
