I can tell, that the bad reviews here are right. The sheets have yellow and red stains! The hotel claims to have a fitness room, but that simply is a lie. I knew that before I came here and now that I asked them, they say it is closed currently - A deceitful way to gain customers. Also they're pool...

Never had breakfast in hotel as the cafe looks a bit shabby and it needs renovation and maintenance as the photos and the actually room and facilities looks very very old! Checked in room without Towels but its still okay for a staycation....

I like to keep my hotel cost below RM200 and since my two preference hotel along Jalan Burhanudin Helmi are full, I went for the third. Embassy is not that close to the food courts but not very far either. Still walking distance. I got room 214. It is actually same level as the reception. No telephone inside the room....

“My room was one of the deluxe rooms on first floor. On the west/north side, there is a huge construction site, so there will be no nice view and alot of noise sometimes.I heard, that they have rooms without windows, but that wouldn't bother me, since the windows are extremely dirty and my curtains closed all the time. There are a couple of restaurants very close to the hotel and a kiosk. If you like to walk, you can go to the KSL mall within 15-20 minutes. If not, you need a car or taxi! There are no busses or any public transport for inside the city.”
