For a mid-level hotel you get what you should expect: basic amenities, limited breakfast selections, solid service. If this is what you require, the Summer View is a great choice. We've stayed here twice before so we knew what to expect upon arrival. All the positives have been mentioned in other reviews: great location for exploring the city, good security, simple clean rooms. The negatives have also been covered: rough-ish neighborhood (though we have never experienced anything amiss), smallish rooms without fridge, and a lackluster breakfast buffet to begin the day. But Summer View is definitely a cut above similarly-priced hotels both in the area and the rest of KL.
One warning: if you are traveling with a child as we were--an 11-year-old--the king size beds are smaller than other kings you will find in Malaysia. And the deluxe twins do not accommodate two comfortably, so there is no ideal room for a family of three.
