Stayed in this hotel with friends and found the location of the hotel to be one of the worst locations in the city. Situated in an isolated area on a one way and nobody seems to know the location well. Even with a hotel card with their address on it, the taxi drivers found it impossible to find the location....

This hotel has the worse service i have ever encountered. The staff did not have the basic courtesy to greet or even look up when we approached them. I was impressed by the hotel infrastructure (at this price point), but disgusted with the attitude of every single person/staff working there. Also, when i asked for a cab to the Airport,... More

I want to express my appreciation to the staff and management of the hotel. For their friendliness and professionalism. I am prepared to recommend the hotel to my friends traveling to Kuala Lumpur. The hotel is clean, quiet and safety standards.

First impression was OK but as time went by, I encountered a lot problems. Firstly, the internet connection is the worse you can imagine. The wireless unit was found almost everywhere located on the ceiling on each floor but on the 5th. floor, it was useless. I complained to the reception about 3/4 times and the problem still went unresolved.... More
