There are a lot of pros and cons to this place. And a few very minimal things could make it really livable. Cons; First off my girl and I got a room with 2 double beds. One bed was higher than the other so when we pushed them together someone kept falling between the beds. It was funny the first... More

Stayed in Hotel Petaling 3 nights only and we spent most of time going out, so we did not use much the facility. The room is quite small, you can smell the cigarret and the water is quite weak but for me, it is okie with the price they offered. The staffs are very friendly and helpful though we just... More

Stayed 3 nights. Walls are thin. You can smell cigarette smoke in the room somehow, you can hear noise from the street (alhtough our room had a cool view of the petronas tower). Bathroom very small (you'll be showering on top of the toilet) -- but frankly, we'd book here again if we were to come back to KL =... More

On the positive side the hotel is well located, cheap and the rooms we had were quite clean as well. Reception staff was helpful and kind and they booked us an airport transfer at a very reasonable price. There are water dispensers on the corridors so no need to buy bottled water if you are ok with the taste of... More

The room is spacious enough and it has TV. Value for the price with a decent room and clean as well. The air-con works well without problem, the usual thing we would experience with a budget hotel. Location was very good and the monorail is accessible within few meters. Always go back to this hotel whenever I need to stay... More

We had a double room with aircon and bathroom (plus window). The room was clean, bed comfortable and bathroom had hot water. It took a while to find a working WiFi-network but as soon as we found one, it was pretty fast. The only downside was the strange smell that would sometimes come out of the bathroom. It was pretty...
