Normally I stay in MidValley, but required access to the KLIA express to get to Putrajaya, hence chose this hotel based on proximity to the station and recommendations of friends.
Location is directly next to the KLIA express station - beat the traffic from the Airport and take the train to Sentral, and within 3 mins walk, you are at the hotel. The KL Sentral station has shops, restaurants and amenities like SIM cards and topups - everything you need.
The hotel is a short walk to Little India/Brickfields which is good for a walk around, you can also reach the monorail from there.
Hotel is very clean with a modern/funky design. Plenty of space and plenty of places to chill out in the lobby including a free pool table in the lobby bar. The roof top bar (maibar) is very nice, recommend hitting the happy hour for a great view and good prices for a few drinks.
Booked an "urban" type room, it was quite spacious, certainly above average size with a large shower recess (no tub) and bathroom. Decent selection of amenities, nice fluffy robes and slippers etc.
The bed was huge, medium soft firmness and the pillows were overly soft feather style
Beware - lots of items you would expect to be in the bedroom area are actually tucked away in the bathroom - took a while to find them :)
The staff in the hotel are excellent, super friendly with excellent English - they greet you every time you walk in and out.
Highly recommended and will return for sure.
