“My favorite in KL because...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Great location if working around mid valley; connected to two big malls with super food courts!

Executive lounge has fantastic service, food, meeting facilities and views of KL. Free wifi on two devices everywhere in the hotel is wonderful!

Most staff seem to be happy and helpful. We didn't like the way concierge staff tries to discourage guests from taking regular taxis to airport, and insists on hotel taxis for twice the price.

Surely going back!

I stayed here twice, two nights each time, on business, in October and November.
Overall I like this place a lot.
The good: Good size, well maintained room, with all necessary amenities in it. Nice bathroom too.
Friendly staff. In-spite of the strict letter about checkout times and extra payment if you are late to check out that I found in my room; the girl at the lobby told me to not worry, and that it was OK if I was a little bit late, since I needed to finish a few things in town before coming back to check out. And this is not the only example.
Nice gym.
Very good breakfast, with nice local and western selection.
Taxi station right as you walk out from the lobby.
One of the largest malls in Asia, with all of the dining and shopping you can think about, right as you walk out the elevator at the lobby level. Including a large supermarket where you can stock you room fridge with what you need at street price rather than hotel price.
Room safe bolted down.
Very affordable rate.
So so:
You will get some street noise even at 20th floor. Windows seem to be made of single pane with no noise insulation. It can be so-so or bad, depending on your sensitivity. I was kind of OK with that, maybe because I like everything else. I am not sure if there is a better side with less noise due to the central location of the hotel. Maybe others commented on that.
Pool is out door (which is fine) but shallow. I did not use it because of that, and mostly saw kids playing in it. (Which is important too...)

All in all very good. Which is why I cam back...

I'm here now. It's slightly on the pricey side but worth every penny.
Location: Excellent! Near the komuter train station - less than 10 mins walk. Neighbors with Midvalley Megamall and Gardens Mall- excellent shopping haven!
Service: Fast check-in. No fuss. All-smiley reception. Polite & courteous staff. Clean, smart - looking lobby and general ambience.
Room: Not very big but comfy enough with loads of pillows. Very clean and well-maintained. Excellent hot shower and water pressure. I love the complimentary toiletries! Great wifi service in the room! One of the rare hotels where the airconditioning controller could actually function perfectly.
Highly recommend this hotel!

Really enjoyed my stay here. Was close enough to where I had to work and got a chance to see some of the sights in the city like the Petronas Towers. Wonderful view from the 27th floor which I guess what really the 24th since the elevator was missing the 7th, 13th and 14th floors! Not sure why!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

This is a dated hotel undergoing refurbishment located in a mega-mall (actually two malls one called Midvalley Mall and the other Gardens Mall) away from the downtown. The price is very reasonable.

Location:
Located in a mega-mall away from downtown area. So, if you're a first time visitor, this may not be the best located hotel for you. However, it's a MYR$12 cab ride from KL Sentral station (town center station for KLIA express train from airport which costs MYR$70 return for one adult) and a few commuter train stops to the downtown area (commuter train station located just outside the mall, level 1 northside). Cabs are cheap and plentiful. There's a cab rank just outside the hotel, but beware some of the cabbies will ask for fix price to a destination rather than using the taximeter, or will add $2 to the fare, just a rip-off. You can say no and get out of the cab. A second cab rank at south end of the mall, or hail one on the street.

Security: there's no secure card-only access to the floors, but it's in a mall, so security isn't so bad.

Room: Rm2410 was a bit dated. The carpet had a huge iron burn mark on it and was a bit dirty. There were hair on the bathroom floor, but otherwise OK. The bed was very firm, but the bedsheets were clean. Free internet, bottled water and daily newspaper. Small unstocked bar fridge for your convenience. Complimentary fruit too. Air-conditioned. No smells. Non-smoking floors available.

Dining options: The buffet breakfast on level 9 would have cost me MYR$19/day at check-in or MYR$42/day later on. Don't bother. You can eat cheaper and better elsewhere in the mall, unless you can't do without cereal. There's plentiful local breakfast cuisine to choose from in the mall, usually open at 8am, ground level northside of mall near hotel; in the basement level of Gardens mall eg Nonya Colours (mee siam delicious!); or level 1 Northside. Give the local food a go! eg mee siam, nasi lemak, kaya toast, local coffee, local kueh etc. For lunch or dinner, there are even more options in the mall, take your pick, there's more on the Garden mall side. There's a supermarket on the basement level too.

Shopping:
Shop-til-ya-drop. This mall has loads to see. When you're done, take the cab or train downtown to see the sights, shop (Chinatown, Bukit Bintang area, KLCC) and food (Jalan Alor at night with their myriad of stalls).

Room Tip: High floor to get a view of the down town area

This hotel is conveniently located in the Mid-Valley mega Mall, so it
is extremely convenient for shopping & dining..you need not travel brave
traffic jams,this way you spend more quality time in Kuala Lumpur.

There is a taxi rank just outside the hotel. The hotel has also dedicated
limousine taxis

Check-in was fast and room requests were met. We had to wait for our
rooms as the hotel was full.

The rooms were sufficiently large. They were clean.

The buffet breakfast spread was wide & good. Their croissants were good. Surprised
to see thosai served too.

The hotel has a gym & a spa too

Checkout was fast with no hassles

You can bypass the main lobby to get to the hotel lift by going
via the exit just before "The Little Penang Cafe" on the ground
level within the Mall (North Point end)

A very conveniently located & quality hotel to come back too

Room Tip: You can request for non-smoking floor room. Likewise for a quiet room away from the lift lobby
