I loved this hotel. It wasn't pretentious, it was honest, authentic and contemporary without trying too hard and located in a fabulous enclave within central KL minutes on foot from Bukit Bintang and Chang Khat.
Granted some other reviewers have found the back and side lane way location not ideal. If arriving by taxi - tell the driver the hotel is located behind the the Hotel Genesis - from there its a 1 minute walk behind to the Courtyard. If you can look beyond the lane way issue and realise you are in the best walking spot to all KL has to offer then you wont be disappointed.As a solo female traveller I never felt compromised and the hotel security is excellent.
I loved the fact I could be in Jalan Alor (eat street) within minutes (directly behind the hotel), and also traverse down KL's premium bar district and shop till I dropped on Bukit Bintang until 10 pm all within 5 minutes walk from this hotel.
My room was just lovely... generous size, king bed, effective air-conditioning, contemporary furnishings, free and reliable WIFI, cable, private and spacious outside rain water shower...and quiet despite the central location, 24 hour CCT and a great communal courtyard to chill out in and walking distance to EVERYTHING!
The room spruces up a bit better in the online photos and you may notice some minor lack of attention to detail (decor wise) however,everything worked and I was overall delighted with my room, it was always kept clean and it was spacious. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
Imran, the night manager of this property, was just lovely, kind, attentive and professional.
