“lived up to our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

we stayed in a one bedroom apartment. this place is very well maintained and the apartment is furnished to a very high standard with all the modern amenities. it was cleaned daily and again was spotless. the place is very secure as there is security at entrance and the reception is manned all the time. the lifts are also operated with your apartment key card. there is also a safe for your use. the location is excellent as within walking distance to shopping malls, petronas towers and the metro station. the staff are very helpful and friendly. we had breakfast included in our stay which is provided next door. there was plenty of choice and gain the staff at the restaurant were helpful and always very pleasant. as we were there during the Chinese new year celebrations , the place was very nicely decorated with Chinese lanterns etc. I would definitely recommend this place as our stay was very comfortable

Room Tip: we were on the 15th floor which was very quiet

Simple and Modern Apartment with all facilities. We had two rooms , hall dining, and open kitchen. Location is excellent very close to twin towers and shopping district. The kitchen has all the facilities to cook. Parking facilities are also available. Rooms are fitted with TV and round the clock safety and services are provided.

Room Tip: If travelling from singapore please bring only cooking materies. Rooms on higher floors looks better...

Staying for a week. Its a nice and clean hotel. The room is nice, kitchen is nice, have everything you need to make a meal. The washing machine took too long to wash and dry our clothes.

Breakfast is a little boring but it's still ok i guess. Very close to KLCC and other shopping malls. Friendly staff, always smile but they don't speak so good english, every-time we call the reception to ask for information they never understand what we want and we hardly to understand them too.

The pool is lovely, clean and always have pool towers ready for you, however, the water was very cold even at 11am. The view from the pool is nice, unfortunately there was a new construction is on-going so you can never seen the twin-towers from here anymore. The gym is next to the pool and its nice.

They have a small lovely restaurant which also a bar at the ground floor which live music.

Overview, this is a nice hotel or service apartment for family or who has long vacation. The price is good and we happy to come back again.

It was within our budget and in a good location. Close to the embassies' quarter and about 20 min walk to the Petronas towers.
Our room was a decent size and had a kitchenette (good for the families who want to save money). The breakfast is served in a nearby cafe on the ground floor. The selection was not big, but it was enough. They have a pool on the top floor, would be nicer if one could see the view, but there are walls in between and one has to be in the pool to see more.
All in all a good hotel for business trips or various embassy runs in KL.

I wanted a hotel close to KLCC and this was the one within the budget. The rooms are big and clean, with kitchen. The breakfast is good, but gets boring after a few days. The pillows are too soft to my liking, so they can improve there. The best part is, its just 10 min walk to KLCC. While taking a taxi, make sure you take budget taxi which uses meter. I once called for taxi before going for breakfast and I paid almost double on a Thaipoosam day, where I think the taxi driver made an agreement with the hotel guy who called for taxi. So always ask them to call for the taxi only when you are nearby. Since I was on a hurry, had to go with it. But overall, its a great place to stay.

Price was a factor and we also wanted space.
These are really appartemnts and are decked out with washing machine,walk in wardrobe,separate office,full kitchen etc
10 minutes in good traffic to the city central cost 15R in a taxi
Great smallish gym with a fab view,lovely guest reading room on the roof.
Free breky at the restaurant next door which also has a DJ on a Fri night and sports on most times.
We only had the fajitas but they were not bad at all.
Reasonable wine at 120R a bottle or around $8 a glass,
Friendly staff and you can dance if you get the urge

Room Tip: End room,high floor,no smoking

This hotel is situated in very safe place, little bit far from Touristic places, and between different embassies,therefore as you can imagine it is very safe place, walking distance you have some restaurants and some shops, it is 10 minutes drive to PETRONAS towers . price is very reasonable for such a great place, also staff are great.
