Very large rooms in a central location (on the monorail, 10-20 minute walk to either KLCC or all major shopping areas). Our room had a good view of the Petronas Towers, even though we were on a lower floor. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was very large - it even had two sinks.
On the other hand, there were some rough edges for a place that presents itself as an upper tier hotel. We had to wait for an hour to check in to our room, and then I think they forgot about us as we had to wander up to get our key. There were blood or some kind of other stains on the curtains, and on the duvet. There was black mildew on the base of the shower and other places in the bathroom - it was clear the area behind the door in the toilet room had not been cleaned in some time. The hairdryer was very ineffectual, and probably 20 years old.
We enjoyed our stay for the price we paid, but if you do stay here, get a good rate - if you're to pay a bit more, opt for something nicer like the Traders Hotel (keeping in mind some extras here, like internet is RM60/day).
