“Nice value & location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

I was here with my family. It reasonable rate, clean,professional service. I feel comfortable and secured. I strongly recommend this hotel. The location was great as the hotel & KL sentral station was just 5 minutes of walking distance. The internet connection was excellent & the rooms are very comfortable just that all the things inside the hotel room comes with a price even the toiletry items except the 2 bottles of drinking water which might be the hotel's policy to avoid hotel guest to take any of the hotel's items as "souvenirs" home.
Just a point to note, the choices of breakfast was very limited compared with Sentral hotel which was just around the corner.

Room Tip: Choose higher floors like 7-9 floors to avoid the traffic noise downstairs.

..then it's really close to the station, wrong exit is longer walk :)
Great option for short transit stays, direct stop from the airport at kl sentral. Friendly staff. Clean rooms, good shower. Beds are really hard though. Free Wifi is great.
Hotel Requires a 100 mlr cash deposit at check in.
Eating delicious and clean food at the road side stalls with the locals across the street.
Would stay again. Good value.

The hotel is really close to the KL Sentral station(bus and train), about a 5 minute walk. The surrounding area is referred to as "Little India", but don't mistake that as a bad thing. Lots of places to eat nearby, and a Seven-eleven convenience store is only around 50 meters away. Staff are great, definitely more friendly and approachable than most establishments in KL. The rooms are clean and big enough, but don't expect loads of space. One little thing I didn't really like was the state of the TV inside the rooms, channel selection was really limited and reception was hit or miss. The included breakfast was good enough, though the lack of service water was kind of a letdown. Overall though, this place is great for a no-frills stay in KL.

After staying in a series of somewhat shabby hotels with poor service across Asia hotel summer view made a refreshing change. The hotel itself was very nice, the location was excellent you can get anywhere in the city from Sentral Station and the monorail station is also close by. We loved our room the bed was really comfy the bathroom was cleaned and it all got cleaned every day as well as getting tea, coffee and bottled water replenished everyday. Breakfast was brilliant (toast with actual butter!) and a selection of eggs, beans, porridge, rice whatever floats your boat. There was no limit so you could have as much as you liked. Staff were all very friendly, helpful and attentive and security is excellent although we never felt unsafe. All round brilliant would definitely stay there again! Also there are loads of great restaurants in Little India forget jalan Alor just stay round brickfields so much better!!!

Room Tip: Higher up the better traffic can be a little noisy- we were on floor 7 and slept brilliantly.

Stayed for 1 night in this hotel due to our flight to KL arrived midnight and Its best stay here because of its location could be reach by foot ( only couple of minutes) from KL Sentral and had to catch our flight back to Surabaya the next day. We booked Sky bus from LCCT to KL Sentral for only RM 7.7 for adults and better paid child fare inside bus for only RM 4 ( if booked Online would be same price as adult) and for getting back to LCCT we bought Aero bus ticket for RM 8/adult (bought round trip directly at counter for only RM 14 - would save more pennies ^^).

The room size was a bit small but still ok. Clean room with window, carpeted floor, and enough lights also a clean and simple bathroom (shower, bidet, and washbasin with toiletries like shampoo, soap and hair cap). We booked with an extra bed through agoda ( same price booked directly) and got price IDR 822.751.

More Value addition were it Served breakfast (Eggs, sausages, beans, fried rice, porridge, kwetiao, dumpling, fried fish, fruits, tea, coffee, orange juice, toast with butter or jam), it was a NO Smoking hotel ( suitable for child), its location ( near KL sentral) and had wifi for free (but not strong signal).

I would stay here again if only for transit but would prefer stayed in Bukit Bintang area for holiday or shopping purpose.

Being close to the KL sentral station is very nice as most (all) trains come through this station (minimizing transferring). Mid-Valley Mega mall is one stop away, as is Chinatown (Pasar-Seni station). KLCC is only 5 stops away. Take KL kommuter to Batu Caves. And if you come to KL by train (from Singapore/Georgetown) this is the station you would like to stop at. Monorail is nearby the hotel too (2nd stop Tun Sambanthan station) is less than 2 blocks away.

The staff here are very friendly and helpful. They were the highlight of our stay here. Very helpful. If you require printing done, email it to them and they will print it (.50RM per page). Breakfast is decent and adds to the value of your stay here. Beds are very firm, room is a decent size.

There are some operational issues here, but they are quick to try to resolve anything for you. For example, our room would get cleaned each day at various times and they would forget to leave soap or something. When you called the front desk, they had someone respond very quickly.

Wi-fi is free but spotty.

In all, the people made the stay enjoyable. The location is fantastic and there is good value here.

NOTE: hotel does not offer laundry service, but there is a laundrette at the YMCA near the hotel (1 block away on the same side of the street on your way to KL sentral). It is named Silent World and it is owned and run by the Deaf. They do an excellent job and are very appreciative of your business. Both the locals and travelers use their service. They also accept clothing donations (which they wash and sell in the store), and offer some convenience store amenities for purchase (toothpaste, toilet paper, candy, pop, etc). The Process: They charge by the weight to do your laundry, 4RM ($1.31 CAD) per kg . Bring your dirty clothes in, and place it in the bin on the scale next to the counter. Someone will come check the weight and calculate the price. On the counter is a sign that says TODAY or TOMORROW, advise the person when you would like your clothes back by pointing to the word. This is written on a receipt with the time your clothes will be ready along with the price. You must prepay at this point and write your name on the receipt. Do not loose the receipt as it is required for you to pick up your clothes. And there you have it! Clean clothes!

And if you need a haircut, the barber next to the laundrette is very nice and does a great job!

It's a very nice hotel with a superb location. Very friendly and attentive staff. The room was clean and so was the bathroom. Breakfast is skipworthy though. It's an affordable hotel. I just wanted to point out that the noise of the airconditioner may be unbearable to some - I didn't mind it all; I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floors of the hotel to avoid any traffic noise from the busy streets of KL...
