We stayed for five nights in a windowless twin room with air-con. The room's pretty small as is the bathroom and there was a funny smell in the room that never seemed to dissipate. I hope it wasn't mold, but the ceiling in the bathroom looked a little suspicious and I got a cold during my stay. The air-con unit seemed to be capable of freezing the room no matter how high you upped the temperature. Also the free wifi in the hotel was quite unreliable, though it worked most of the time.
Those are the bad sides. Luckily there were plenty of good sides, too. The price of the room isn't bad for Kuala Lumpur (we paid promo prices of about 410 ringgit for five nights = 82 MYR per night) and the location (Cheras) is pretty quiet with many restaurants and an Aeon department store nearby. d'Garden is about one km (maybe less) from the Maluri LRT station, and from there exploring the city is easy. The room was clean and there were water dispensers in the public area on each floor, which was a nice plus.
The staff was alright, especially one hard-working girl who was very kind. Some seemed to speak very good English and the hotel's restaurant was decent. Breakfast was included in the room's price and though it usually had little protein in it, it was different each day and the buffet style guaranteed a full belly.
All in all, we had a quite pleasant stay at d'Garden Hotel. Without the smell and the crazy air-con unit, I could stay there again.
