I did some solo travelling to Kuala Lumpur and decided to stay somewhere close to all the actions - Bukit Bintang. Decided to give this 3 star hotel a go as it is very very close to the main drag. The hotel is a bit far to walk to from the Bukit Bintang monoral station if you have a checked-in luggage. If you don't then it is easy 5 min walk. Taxi at KL is cheap but they never use the meter and tend to rip you off. Always negotiate for 1/2 the price of what they ask for. Catching a taxi from KL Sentral to this hotel should not cost more than 20 ringitt.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The checkin process was smooth and easy. The hotel is definitely 3 star and the online photos look better than the real thing. It is very dated and small. The room I got allocated is a queen bed non-smoking room facing the back street. You have to close the curtains as your neighbours will get to see you otherwise. It isn't clean and the bathroom is a bit like the 70s. The bed linen is very thin and of low quality.
I didn't eat at the hotel and cannot comment on the food.
Overall it is a cheap hotel for a short stay and providing you don't plan to stay inside the hotel it is not a bad option. I only used the place to sleep and shower.
Will I come back again? Probably not as there are many options and better value hotels around the area.
