Hotel is located just in front of China Town. walking distance from Pasar Seni LRT stn and monorail station . Just look at the City... More

We stayed at the 5th floor which isn't as noisy as I expected, considering its very crowded location. For around $25 a night for a triple room, I really can't complain. The hotel, overall, is a bit run - down though. I'm not sure if I'm staying here again.

We stayed 8 nights in Hotel petaling and we were happy with the service provided by Hotel staff. All our group members felt the same and its definitely a best option to stay. It is very closer to China town and Sentral is also not far by. Pasar Seni station (very closer to Hotel Petaling) connects to all important stations.... More

We stayed 3 nights and were happy with what we got for our $. Although we did have a room at the front of the hotel that was a bit noisy from traffic. Hot and cold water dispenser on every floor. Hotel has a lift. Staff were friendly, always acknowledged us when we walked past. Room was made up once... More

Hotel Petaling has a bad smell - in the lobby and in the rooms. Walls are paper thin so you hear EVERYTHING - and we had particularly noisy neighbours (which I'm not blaming on the hotel, but still added to our bad experience). The shower doesn't get that hot. Quite rundown. Staff not helpful or particularly friendly. Wifi kept cutting... More

The staff at hotel petaling are lovely and helpful. Rooms are basic but you have options of having a t.v and aircon. Not really a backpackers place , but good for someone who isn't into the hostel life and is still cheap.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel, which is exceptionally positioned in the heart of Chinatown. It is easy walking distance from KL Sentral (the main bus station) as well as from the old train station, and the Pasar Seni LRT station. It is also close to the free pink bus that does a loop into other parts of KL.... More

Basic amenities, clean rooms, really good spot for exploring china town and other crazy places. Staff were pretty helpful. The area surrounding is a bit smelly, but this place was good for a budget stay

while the rooms are fairly sparse and run down, the hotel is fine for what it is. the rooms are run down looking but not particularly dirty. if, like me, accomodation is just a place to sleep for you, then this place is fine. the staff provided us with a lot of information about the area, places to eat, things...

Some may think this title is juvenile or overly pedantic but I can assure you and you will see if you look at my other reviews I rarely am disappointed but this hotel literally stinks of feces.
