First of all I do not know which hotel Scott S was referring to in his review but there is no breakfast, no wine bar and his description of the surrounding area is not as I found it. The hotel is a basic budget hotel. The lady owner speaks fluent English and the other reception staff can manage. It is within walking distance of the market, the bus terminal, the museums on Merderka (Independence) Square, and the shops, McDonalds, KFC and the Irish Bar (Golden City). The room was clean but basic. There is no elevator but I was offered help with my bag which I did not, in fact, need. There are no toiletries and very limited channels on the TV - this did not bother me but may bother some. There is an interesting Friday morning market in the streets nearby. It is also a half hour walk to Thai Consulate (or 12 Ringgit by taxi) where obtaining a visa is quick and painless. There are other budget hotels in the town but none of them looked as good as this one. There are several Indian eateries nearby for early morning coffee and rotis. My attempt at an early night on the first night of my stay was ruined by a Malaysian (I think) family who allowed their small children to run up and down the corridors and stairs unsupervised (after 8pm) while the adults shut the door of the room and watched TV. I had to ask the owner to speak to them which she did. Unfortunately this is not the first time that I have come across this kind of thing in Malaysian hotels
