Rooms have been refurbished roughly. Bathrooms are very old. Everything felt dirty. Card locks dont work well and will keep you awake at night with people trying to get into their rooms. Wifi didn't work in the room either. I was supposed to stay three nights, left after one. This is a old hotel charging too much because of location,... More

Hotel cleanliness and environment is satisfactory. Location is good as it is just few steps to the immediate night food street and nearby shopping facilities. We enjoyed the hawkers' food and restaurant dishes in the locality.

The hotel is situated in a famous street market full of restaurants where you can taste authentic malaysian cuisine. There are also convenience stores, fruit vendors, milk tea as well as Seven 11.

Great location for restaurants and street food. Local shopping is abundant. Service (front desk, room staff, and breakfast restaurant) often forget about hospitality. Have to make repeated requests for items to be fixed in room (leaking shower). For a short stay the hotel is OK, not a hotel for those looking for relaxation or minor luxury, considering its price per... More

Yup it's a three star. And it meets that criteriion easily. Great location - Jalan Alor is the food capital of KL. Comfortable rooms, more than adequate breakfast and the staff are some of the most pleasant we've dealt with in travels through Asia. We've stayed at the Nova on a number of occasions as well as staying at some... More
