Stayed here 2 years ago and was ok so decided to bring the family this time. Bad move. This time was awful. The smell of the rooms and poor hygiene was gross. One star for location. Reading their annual report it appears the building is to be shortly replaced. So I gather they have decided to let it run down.... More

However it has become seriously rundown and dirty with apparently no maintenance. Room with double bed and attached bathroom cost 116 MYR but at check.in tried to charge me more despite having email confirmation of... More

I stayed here about 10 years ago with some friends before all the skyscrapers around even existed. At that time it served as a functional, clean and central place to stay. Today at 110RM per night for a 2-person room that is no longer the case. The bed is ok but the bathroom needs a serious overhaul. Ever heard of... More

Located only a 3min walk to KL Sentral it is in an excellent location. Easy access to the airport, city and other attractions. The Indian food near the YMCA is delicious! Beds were comfy and bathroom was basic but all we needed. Breakfast is a choice of 2 options, usually 1 option is noodles. Will definitely stay here again
