Spent 4D/3N in Lotus Hotel with my former office buddies for some R&R out of the country. Hotel is pretty much basic but it suited our needs. Some few comments though to justify my rating. First would be the room that we stayed in. Both the bedroom and the bathroom was clean and okay. However, I was surprised to see some sheet stains in the area I was going to sleep in. This made me conclude that there might be potential bed bugs in there as well. We had a late evening check-in during our first night so I didn't bother asking the hotel to change them. Instead, we just used the blanket to cover the stains. Thought I was able to solve this simple dilemma but it then became a problem because the air-conditioning was directly towards my area which felt really cold early in the morning. Didn't want to turn it off either so I just hoped that they changed the sheets the next day. Luckily, they did but only during our last night at Lotus. Until then, I had no choice but to use the blanket and sleep on top of the stained sheets during our second night. Apart from that, I was surprised to see that we didn't have any refrigerator in any of the 3 rooms we booked for our group. We had to drink our leftover beer warm each succeeding night. Other than the two mentioned, I pretty much enjoyed staying here mostly due to its proximity to the train station. The Masjid Jamek (part of Little India) station was directly across the hotel. Takes only two direct train stops to get to KLCC or a total of 3-4 stops with one interchanging station to get to The Pavillion. As for the breakfast, the experience was a first for me. Instead of having your typical breakfast buffet care of the hotel, we were each given a $5 ringgit voucher every morning which we could avail any time during the day (doesn't have to be during breakfast). The voucher entitled us to purchase any meal from the first three cafeterias along our street. Of course, we ended up in the last cafeteria which we thought was the best. The voucher was enough for me to order a Roti (they have different Rotis to offer) and a Teh Tarik to start my day right. Overall, I'd say my stay was an overall average to good experience. I'd probably consider staying at Lotus again if I'm travelling back to KL on a budget.
