“Hotel at excellent location”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

I've been patronising this hotel for more than 3 years whenever I'm in town for work and it has maintained the great service level over the years. What I like about the hotel is the helpful front desk staff & great soft pillow with comfortable bed for a good night sleep after a stressful day. There is wifi/broadband available in room as well as a big LCD with quite a good selection of channels. Breakfast however remains pretty much predictable and hope diffefent varieties to be introduced. Location wise it is right next to the Federal Highway and opposite to the LRT station.An ideal place to stay for those who travels to city centre in the day and rushing to Subang airport in the next morning.

Stayed in this hotel for a night and not a bad hotel. Service is just average and i think the staff should smile more. Room facilities are okay and standard. Location is so so but it is close to the Komuter Station.

My wife and I stayed in armada for a night and it wasn't too bad except for the miserably trained front desk staff who was unfriendly. The check in took 20 minutes. And it seemed that courtesy & service with a smile is uncommon here.

In terms of the room, there are just some minor issues here & there but nothing major that ruined our stay. But I must say that the bed was very plush & comfortable.

PROS:
1. Comfortable bed
2. Large bathroom
3. Daybed
4. Sizable room
5. Boutique like features
6. Good water pressure
7. Basement parking
8. Complimentary canned drinks in the minibar

CONS:
1. Unfriendly front desk staff
2. Slow check in process
3. Insufficient & slow elevators
4. Fluctuating water temperature for the shower
5. Shower cabinet not entirely covered which led to wet floor after every shower
6. Suite only comes with one set of bathrobe?
7. Noisy mini bar / fridge
8. Weak air conditioning
9. Availability of parking is an issue most of the time

Booked a Premier Deluxe room for two nights for some guests from overseas. Surfed online and decided on the hotel's own website since the others didn't really offer anything exciting. I thought prices were a bit steep and items like breakfast are optional extras.

Didn't appreciate to be told when checking in that the Premier Deluxe room only comes with double beds. They sure didn't mention it on the website and I thought I did put down a comment that I would like a twin bed setup. Fortunately my guests weren't particular but do take note if you're booking for complete strangers.

We got stuck in the lift (elevator to you Americans), my guests and I. The buzzer didn't work because most likely it was the buzzer / alarm system / whatever that failed. After 10 minutes I made a call down to the reception (while still stuck with the alarm going off). One can wonder what would happen if none of us had mobile phones. The ladies were a bit claustrophobic, making things a tad more urgent but sadly, no urgency on the hotel's part. We did get out anyway. Here's writing to you all.

They offered us free breakfast but none of us took that offer.

On the positive note, the hotel is all right. Rooms were clean, well setup for the professional traveler. The Premier Deluxe room is big by KL standards. Buffet lunch and dinner is decent if not spectacular.

Foreigners may appreciate that public transport is well within reach. There's a bus stop just by the highway, and the light railway station is a short walk away (Asia Jaya Stop). Kuala Lumpur city centre and also the Twin Towers can be accessed directly via the light rail.

In the end, I would put this hotel in the "can do better" category.

Good location, close to 2 big malls, travel to malls during off peak to avoid heavy traffic - Sunway and Mid Valley mallsare the places to shop. Staff friendly and helpful. If travelling to KLIA with lots of luggage, request a limo.

I chose to stay in this hotel because of its reasonable price compared to the other hotels that I have stayed in during my previous trips to Petaling Jaya.
Pricewise this hotel costs less than $80 per night which already includes daily breakfast.
Rooms are sparsely decorated and food in the hotel restaurant will easily set you back by $15++ per meal.
If you would be staying long its much better to book at a hotel within walking distance from a shopping mall and restaurants which this hotel is not.
I will only stay here again if I am really on a budget since there are a lot of hotels in this area that afford easy access to eating places and shopping.

I stayed 2D/2N. First impression was not encouraging. The hotel could not check me in at 3 pm because the encoder machine was not working then and I could not be issued with a keycard. Finally half an hour later I was issued a temporary keycard (copied from a master keycard whatever that means).
The toilet cover was dusty and I had to wipe off the dirt with the floor towel.
Then the room safe was found to be not working. However it was fixed promptly. The same problem cropped up again the next morning. This time front desk came with someone to replace the faulty safe.

Generally the room was comfortable.
My room came with a glass table, lounge armchair and foot stool which had an obvious cigarette burn mark. The room could do with more drawers for clothes and underthings.

I get the feeling that this hotel caters more for business men and not enough for women. At least it came with a long mirror, which I find missing in many classier hotel rooms.

Amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, flat panel tv, iron+iron board, coffee/tea facilities, 2 bottles of drinking water daily, newspaper daily, hairdryer, disposable room slippers..

The spacious bathroom came with very good shower, reasonable thick towels for face, hand, bath, and floor.
Bathroom toiletries include shower cap, shower gel, conditioning shampoo, soaps, facial tissues, cotton buds, sewing kits.
BUT no body cream. Also no toothbrush+toothpaste, comb, razor, although I think housekeeping may provide if requested.

The staff were polite and friendly.

I asked for an extra hour before check out, and the hotel obliged.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor for a better view and less street noise. Also ask for non-smoking floor.
