We booked it last minute based on pictures on both tripadvisor and on agoda. Of course price was also a relevant factor. However, don't be fooled by the pictures. The room was not as clean as it seems. It was also a lot smaller than expected. Towels provided and tv had some decent channels. The lobby was dark (we came... More

The hotel is in the city near Time Square just a few walk. The room is small but clean. Recommend for backpacker because the price is cheap compare to the other in that location. See you again, guys!!

This hotel is strategically located, less than 5 minutes walking distance from Imbi monorail station, just behind Time Square shopping complex at Bukit Bintang, KL. The room and bathroom was small but very clean even underneath the bed! Some facilities like small foldable table and bathroom sliding door need to be repaired. Poor soundproof in room is the main problem.... More

The room was very small and compact but ideal for what we needed and most importantly very clean. Great location and friendly, helpful staff. I would gladly stay here again and recommend the hotel to anyone stopping over in KL for a few days any longer and the lack if space could become an issue.

We have to passed the alley which is smelly and... More

Hi Fiona, Firstly, we would like to thank you for your feedback. While we acknowledge the fact that the back ally just next to our hotel is dirty with foul smell, there is nothing we can do about it. We have made official complaints to the relevant authorities regarding the eateries that dump their waste haphazardly and the authority even... More

We stayed at this place last September 2012 and got two rooms good for 4.. both rooms have two bathrooms each, two thumbs up as there is no need for waiting.. it may be small but not cramped, there is ample room for bathing and doing stuff.. plus, maybe since it was fairly new the time we stayed, but i...

Upon getting there, we were happy that the hotel is so well placed in the middle of the bustling city with major attractions like bukit bintang walk just a stone throw away (if you take the alleys). Receptionist is totally weird in the way she speak and to be honest I was offended by her attitude and overall service. Went... More

We read the reviews and knew we were getting a small room, but we could barely fit our bags in the room, and we could hardly squeeze ourselves into the toilet/shower cubical. There was also a really strong musty smell in the room. The staff were friendly, and the Imbi location made things easy, but for this price in KL,... More
