We only stayed one night, have stayed before. Rooms have no windows but it is cheap!

Was supposed to be a non smoking room but smelt of cigarettes and had an ashtray on bedside table.

Fantastic location as in centre of Chinatown markets.

Due to no windows, no noise from outside, but walls are thin so can hear noise from other rooms.

Breakfast ok. Wifi good in bar and rooms.

Room Tip: only 2 twin rooms

We arrived at 6.00AM, and we could check in immediately. Which was really nice, so we had a place to stay till we were going to see the city. It is in the middle of China Town, which is a very nice spot to see things around the city. The train is really close and you can get a cab easily around the neighbourhood. The beds were really good, after backpacking for 2 months, it was nice to have a good bed. Shower is fine, and hot. Perfect place if you spend most of the day around the city!

If you're after a cheap room in KL then this place isn't too bad. Most of the rooms have no windows, but they're pretty clean and have decent security. Chinatown itself is a bit of a dump, but the nearest metro line is a 5 minute walk so you're well place to see the rest of the city.

The rooms are clean enough and the staff are friendly and helpful. The place does feel a little like a prison with all rooms on the second and third floors being behind a metal gate and most rooms having no windows but as already said - it is clean and tidy and comfortable enough for the cost and the extra security is no bad thing as china town is not the most selubrious place in KL.

Went there because we arrived very early and we didn't reserve our hotel and everything was full already. We stayed 2 nights. The room was ok (no window but like all is white like in a hospital, you do not care).
People are nice but not very friendly. You also have a terrace where you can eat or have lunch (wiffi access). It's situated on the Petaling street so you are in the night (bazaar) market with a lot of bric-a-brac stores.
If I have to go again, I will go back because it was what we were expecting: something simple, not too far and not too expensive.

This hotel was recommended to me for its value for money and location. I liked the location as it's right near everything which is good for a first time visitor to KL.
The staff were very nice,polite,helpful and there is a balcony overlooking the street that also has free WI-FI . You can happily sit there and not be bothered by anyone, which i appreciated a lot.

For me the room was the last place i wanted to be though, i just went in there to sleep and that's that really. I had hot water, TV was 3 channels of nothing and the bed was well worn and the pillows felt flat. I managed to sleep purely because of all the walking around i was doing during the day.
One previous reviewer wrote that this hotel was very quiet... wow.. Not on this planet. You can hear everyone's business unfortunately.
The rooms are a let down on what i think could potentially be a fantastic little hotel.
