Great place to stay if you need something centrally located, close to great restaurants and very cheap. There are absolutely no frills here, but the rooms are clean, quiet, and have all basic necessities covered. The staff is friendly and the price is a real bargain. It's a newer location, so if you're going by taxi tell them you need Metro Hotel KL Sentral at Brickfields. It's on the same street with Old Town White Coffee shop on the corner. If you stay there, head around the corner and visit Jassal for some spectacular, authentic Tandoori cuisine.
The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is because of a couple hiccups in communication regarding our reservation. I had requested airport transfer and was expecting it (the airport in KL is quite far from the city). No one was waiting for us and I got a busy tone when I tried to call the hotel. I found out later that airport transfer is not provided as a service by the hotel, but by a separate company who contracts space in their lobby. Airport transfer could've been handled regardless, if communication were effective. At the very least, if it's not offered, it shouldn't be part of the reservation options so I knew what to expect.
Overall, very positive experience minus that one inconvenience.
