This hotel probably is the worst I have ever been to. And I don't say this often. First the good news: the two persons I saw working here both were sympathetic. And the location of the hotel is good. Several restaurants around. Then the bad news: the staff never seemed to be at the reception, no duvet or blanket, no... More

I stayed in this hostel for 4 nights. When I arrived and showed them my reservation from booking.com for a single room they said that someone had already booked this room on agoda.com (and was staying in it when I arrived) and so I can't move in. Well, poor organisation I must say, especially taking into account that I booked... More

Don't be shocked, when you enter the stairway to the 2nd floor. The rooms are clean, the showers are ok. You can reach nearly everything by foot. It's good for a short stay in KL to see the city. It should be called Homestay, because you life with the family, which is really friendly and helpful.

Staff are very friendly and caring, although there is a slight communication barrier in English with the new owners. But rooms are quite noisy - the walls are thin and noise from the streets and from other guests on the floor penetrate very easily. Location is great (short walk to Masjid Jamek LRT station and Pudu Central intercity bus station)... More

Awesome staff. We came in around four o'clock in the night an there was still someone awake to help us! Great! Rooms are simple but clean. Shared showers are small but clean. Tip; make extra hangers to hang stuff. Location is good. Easy to get to places.

I spent two weeks in serai inn with my friendly last year. The location was convenient. It took a 3min walk to nearest mrt and bus station. The staff were friendly and willing to share travelling tips in KL and some neighbouring cities. They were able to communicate in English and some Chinese dialects. The accommodation was not bad. However,... More

I stayed here for a week to attend a conference nearby. I am a post-graduate and it was my first visit to Malaysia. I read about many good reviews about the owner and I am glad I have chosen this place. The people here can speak very good Chinese and I have no problem communicating with them, though I can...

We enjoyed our stay here, mainly beause of the nice Chinese people running the place, the clean shared showers with hot water and the proximity to the LRT and Myanmar visa agency (which was the reason for spending 2 nights in KL). Also the price was good. A few things to be aware of: If you want a towel, you... More
