Stayed here for 3 nights for the second time in March 2019. The hotel was just as great as we remembered. It's a smaller boutique-y style which we much prefer. The rooms were decent sized, not overly fancy but always spotless. The pool area has had an upgrade (not that it needed

No 5 star prices but good rooms, with modern facilities as you would find in a top hotel. Good but not fancy check in 24 hrs is good. Best thing - great location in Bukit Bintang (which means Star Hill) - short easy walk to restaurant streets in one direction and big shopping

A great hotel fairly new. Comfortable beds pillows and nice linen. Walking distance to Pavillion shopping centre and close to the Monorail. The infinity pool on level 11 is a great place to spend the afternoon. Free WiFi and helpful make this a good option whilst in KL.

What is the easiest way to get to the airport from this hotel? And how much will it cost?
We just used Grab from and to the airport, both times at 80 MYR incl road toll. Arriving into KL still in rush hour. Train is fastest/cheapest but grab is easy. Book the car to door 2 or 3 at arrival. Regular taxi is about same price as grab but typical old cars and drivers often complaining about life.

Free parking is for hotel guests only. I would recommend taking a Grab over instead.
