Ok for 1 night stay. It cost me Rm85 for double bed. Room not so big, and bathroom is 50% clean. Not recommended for those who wants perfect vacation. But its just beside KL sentral LRT. There's a food stall just behind the hotel selling delicious briyani rice.

A n old property not worth the price, some other lodge or backpacker's place would be better for less plus wifi. Rooms are still stuck in the early 90s and not well maintained - cobwebs on the wall and I'm guessing our bed linens were not replaced (still have hairs on the bed from previous guest). Otherwise, the location is...

Not very good for the cost. Building is old, and therefore rooms are old! Bedroom was rather small with 2 twin beds. There was mould growing up the walls by the beds. The electric fittings and wiring were all suspect, the fan noisy and the wiring awful. The ancient tv didn't work, it was just for show. The bathroom was...

i have stayed there 3 times, but now i am going to change to other nearby hotels of same price range, after visiting one nearby. i can manage the dirty/filthy state of the room but i wonder if they ever changed/ washed the bed sheet and bath towels. the only plus points are: they place an extra toilet roll in...

I stayed for only one night there. The rooms were very dirty, bathrooms really dirty, there was a very small old tv, dirty bed, smelling veranda. The hotel needs big maintenance. The room rent was cheap, but you have hotels of the same rate giving better facilities, mainly cleanliness was the problem. The service was fine, close to many food...

I stayed here for just under a week after New Year's. It's not the greatest hotel but it's pretty good value considering how much it costs - it's more like a guesthouse. But the service was fairly decent. The location is great, very close to the central station.

I stayed here for close to two months at a stretch, this is a very convenient place to stay and great value for money. It is at the station, well connected with all of KL, clean, minimal. You can also use the coin operated laundry which is just 2 mins walk from the Hotel. You have stores, restaurants etc. just...

I found this Indian-managed hotel after I spent almost half of my traveling allowance in an expensive hotel during my first night and have no other choice other than to find a cheaper one the following day. I was actually looking for a different hotel I found in a booking website but I came across with this one while on...

I chose to stay here as I'd read about it in a guide book and due to it's location close to KL Sentral station. It was also very late and I was very tired after having been travelling for 2 days. The area around the hotel/hostel is what I've come to expect in the centre of cities - a mixture...
