Hotel Summer View
Ranked #64 of 348 Hotels in Kuala Lumpur
Reviewed November 29, 2012

We paid about USD 47 thro' Agoda.com for a nite at the hotel. We were provided with a king-sized bed and a complimentary buffet breakfast for two pax. The room is spacious, bright and the hotel is in a good location for connecting transport; LRT or Monorail. The local breakfast is nice if you're not picky with food.

Transportation:
the nearest KL Monorail station is about 7 mins walk away and the KL Sentral station is about 15 minutes walk from the hotel.

Room:
The room is dated but it is well kept, clean and adequate. You get a in-room SAFE, flatscreen TV and a standing hot-shower. Bathroom slippers and hairdryer are not inclusive.
Recommended for 1 to 2 nights stay and is good for family, elderly and children. Great!

Reception:
Checkin/out process is fast and problem-free by courteous and smiling staff - Cornie and Kina. Thanks.

Location:
Situated opposite the KL YMCA hostel or on the eastside of KL Sentral LRT station. IMHO I think the SV Hotel location is preferred over the Sentral Hotel. It is a less busy road, family-friendly atmosphere and the convenience of OLD TOWN CAFE for food.

Downside: Avoid room facing the signalised traffic junction, else... you will have to tolerate the
constant beeping sound from the "GREEN MAN" at the pedestrain crossing,(all through the night. You rest is ruined.)

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the signalised trafic junction to get a good rest in the night.

I booked this hotel after reading the reviews in various sites and hence wasn't expecting anything great, and the hotel was just that - wasn't any great but you get what you pay for. I wanted this just for the night and with that in mind, the hotel was good. A moderate hotel with a funny hand "bidet" which I found very annoying and a not so good breakfast spread. Just an average hotel but the biggest factor is it's just few minutes away from KL Sentral and would help you get to your places through train.

The hotel is located at walking distance from KL Sentral Station from where you have access to all modes of transportation. i.e. rail, LRT, monorail and bus. The room with a double bed is good enough for a couple and the bathroom is clean. Hotel itself is quite clean including the room and toilet. However, they could add terry towels in the bathroom in addition to the bath towels.The complimentary breakfast is OK with not too many choices. The reception and service staff were helpful. Was proivided a room on arrival although it was before check-in time. An iron and ironing board were provided on request.

Room Tip: Choose a room on Floors 10 to 12 and facing the road. It is not noisy and the view is good.

The reason behind choosing this hotel was its ‘location’. Situated within 300 meters of KL Sentral terminal , it really was an advantage for me as I reached there at the midnight. It was a mere 5 mins walk from the KL Sentral terminus. The hotel can receive an average rating considering the rooms, breakfast & other amenities but the location advantage adds to it. But the area is super quite, hence no disturbance for my sleep. The rooms are clean & have broad windows to enjoy the view of the city (the famous petronas twin towers are visible from all parts of the city). As we had plans to visit Genting Highlands & other attractions of kualalumpur, it was very convenient & affordable to avail the Bus, MRT & BRT from KL Sentral. The KLCC & Bukit Betan area is just a few stops away where you can spend the evening & indulge yourself in shopping & more shopping. Airport connectivity (both KLIA & LCCT) is super easy as you have the options to chose between Taxi, Bus & Airport Trains (City line & express line). Overall, a pleasant stay & friendly staffs are ready to help you (borrowed a travel adapter for my mobile instantly). The dining options outside the hotel is plenty. You can have plenty of options especially Indian & middle eastern cuisines within walking distance.

Room Tip: Take the rooms at higher floors as they are more quite. Pl ensure the tariff as they differentiate b...

This new hotel offers reasonable value. The location is good, the free Wifi has good speeds and the breakfast is reasonable. The breakfast area is pleasant enough but the fried eggs were always cold and coffee almost undrinkable.

The Hotel demands a 100 Ringgit deposit at check in, even with prepaid accommodation.

On the 2nd night (of a 5 night stay) we were woken by a Security man knocking on the door at 1030 pm to hand me a typed notice that 2 face washers were reported as missing from our room by Housekeeping. These items were listed as 5 Ringgit each by the hotel.
I was furious. No face washers were ever provided in the room at all and to wake someone at 1030 pm over such a matter is inexcusable.

The Hotel Manager apologised and acknowledged that there was a Housekeeping error and that we were not at fault and that the Security man should not have woken us.

I would probably not stay there again given the last experience.

Room Tip: There are several casual eating options on the road with 7 Eleven on the corner. The place right on...
