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.

I definitely signed up for more when I booked this hotel. This is more of a value/budget hotel if you have absolutely no intention of seeing your room except early morning and late evening. I suppose it works better for business travellers. The location is superb. It is located close to bukit bintang shopping area. There is a monorail station... More

An inexpensive hotel with a decent breakfast and an amazing location. Just a very short stroll from Jalan Alor, Lot 10, Sengi Weng Plaza and Low Yat Plaza. And still accessible to Bejaya Times Square. The room features (bed, decor, bathroom) were ok/average and it did need a good vacuum on our arrival but the room was absolutely huge and... More

Not too bad in terms of staff service. Room are big and location super good. Many eateries around and Jalan alor is one min walk away. Walking distance to many shopping malls including the Pavilion. Many pubs around hotel. Many girls offer massage with happy ending along the road

The reason I booked it was because it is near to the embassy where I would like to get my business visa done, and it provide free carpark. What I didn't know is that the carpark is located in a separate building and you've to walk through creepy stairway to reach back to ground. I love to swim so I... More

The hotel is located in a very nice strategic place. most of the happening places are around. i think capitol and federal are under same management as i found leaflets of capitol in my room. breakfast is good, room is spacious (i stayed in superior). i think they also have a new wing. i was in the older side.

Walking distance to food street (Jalan Alor), pub street (Changkat Bukit Bintang), just beside Low Yat Plaza (large IT Mall) and lot of malls close by. About 25 min to walk to Petronas Towers. Hotel is ok with good pool (opens only at 9am). Try to avoid rooms at the Bb Park / Low Yat Plaza side very noisy music... More

So we stayed over & took the Xmas eve buffett dinner at their restaurant Kontiki and the most of the dishes were barely edible. The "cold seafood platter" was basically old crabs, oysters and mussels with broken shells. I had a couple of mussels and it made me gag! The other dishes especially the cold ones like the smoked chicken... More
