Arrived for a stopover after a few weeks in Vietnam and Cambodia. First of all, this was the most expensive nightly rate we'd paid. The room's ceiling was in the process of falling in, due to water damage. Half the lights didn't work. Carpet was pretty filthy. Would it kill someone to hoover under the bed also? Room needed painting.... More

Located in the heart of a major shopping precinct and close to GoKL bus stops (free public transport). Room faced away from the main road therefore protected from street noise but sleep still disturbed by inconsiderate people talking loudly in the hallway and allowing their children to run riot at a late hour. I checked out with itchy red spots... More

I stayed for the second time at this hotel and the waiter Adnan immediately remembered me from one year ago and greeted me warmly. All the staff are most helpful and genuinely attentive and engaged. Do book a better room as some are dark with no outlook, but then the price is very reasonable. The buffet during Ramadan is exceptional... More

The hotel staff are very friendly and are very helpful, rooms are excellent and the service is great. One major flaw is that the hotel is situated right next to a bar/nightclub which plays very loud music. Keeps you up for a long time!! Otherwise great!
