“Really nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Every trip is more about people then about conditions where you stay. Well, conditions in Lok Ann are quite good - hot shower, simple but big rooms with windows!! and aircon + breakfast for 80 MR. Nothing to complain about, but a bit of ants in the room.

But the main specialty of Lok Ann hotel is really super friendly and helpful staff. They all could provide a lot of information about KL: places which are worth visiting, what is the easiest way to get from one place to another etc. And it definitely raises a value of a stay in a foreign country.

Lok Ann hotel is located in a good location near china town and heritage walk. More of a guest house than a hotel. Recommended for backpackers and budgeted trip. The hotel is not well maintained especially in the third floor area. There are also hotels near the area to choose from besides Lok Ann Hotel.

Room Tip: see the room first before checking in. the 2nd floor is well maintained than the 3rd floor.

Nice to be back after a year of travel. Willi (the owner) meets me at the train station.It's great to see him again. At the hotel I meet his dad, Helen the receptionist, Veronica the houskeeper and everything feels a bit familiar - almost like home. I like the rooms and that you have your own bathroom. It's perfect to settle down and have a bit of privacy. The beds are comfortable and I know I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight.

I can definitely recommend this place!!! Perfect location, easy to get here with public transportation, nice staff and clean & comfortable rooms.

Enjoy (and say hello to Willi from me ;-)

The staff at Lok Ann was very friendly and service minded. We actually went to Birdnest guesthouse first but were offered to stay at lok Ann cause they were full. We decide to stay there cause we wanted out own room with private bathroom because we were sick at the time. The owner (the man) drove us to the hospital without charging us anything and they also helped us with anything else we needed. Rooms are spacious but of basic standard. There are a lot of trouble with bed bugs and cockroaches in china town, the staff were honest about this and asks their guests to not eat in the rooms and so on to prevent them. We didn't have any problems at all though! Saw to ants in 4 days, that's it. This was a perfectly fine place to stay at for a couple of days on a small budget and location is great. But the friendly staff of course made our stay good despite hospital visits and so on... I recommend this place and the Birdnest guesthouse as well even though we didn't actually spend a night there.

It is more a guesthouse than a hotel. They offer private rooms (very big ones!). The location is very good, just near the LRT station and near Petaling street. The staff is very friendly and they help you to have a good time in KL.

The hotel is easy to find, but the lobby is very small. The staffs are very helpful, give many informations about the room, directions and preferences. The room is quite dark and oldies, but quite big for triple room. The hotel just give towels and soap, the bathroom is oldies and hard to have hot water. Because of right in front of the Chinatown and some buildings construction nearby, so the night in the room is very noisy. But the hotel location is great, just in front of the Chinatown, at night there is a night market there and the hotel is also near Pasar Seni LRT Station (around 15 minutes walk) and around 30 minutes walk to Central Market. The wifi connection in the room is very good. The hotel is quite secure because the door locked at night and can only be opened with password.
