Frenz Hotel
Ranked #169 of 346 Hotels in Kuala Lumpur
Reviewed June 29, 2012

My friends and I had an excellent stay in Frenz Hotel. We booked two rooms and we surprisingly got a connecting room near the elevator. The hotel lobby isn’t very spacious but the service is very fast. It only took us around 5 minutes to check in and out of the hotel. The people in the front desk are also very helpful. When you include breakfast in your booking, it will be at the Zam restaurant beside the hotel. Unfortunately, they do not allow packed breakfasts just in case you need to leave early and will not make it to the breakfast time. The room size is just right for a hotel in the middle of the city. I really liked the bed and the pillows. The bathroom only had frosted glass as a wall so it might be awkward if you’re just with a friend in the room. As a business hotel, the amenities definitely address the needs of businessmen. The complimentary WiFi is a big plus for me.

The location was ok. There is a 5 minute walk to a convenience store or the Sogo Mall. The nearest MRT station is a 10 minute walk away. The only problem is getting a taxi during the wee hours of the morning. We had to leave early because of an early morning flight. The road outside the hotel is barely passed during those times making it hard for us to get a taxi.

Overall, I loved my stay in this hotel and I wouldn’t mind staying here again on my next visit to Kuala Lumpur.

stayed two nights june 2012 and were quite happy with the room and staff service was good.
the real problem was the noise into the small hours from the adjoining street market.
breakfast at zam zam was adequate but there is plenty of choice in the area.perhaps a different room would have allowed some sleep and we were aware of the markets in masjid india.

Room Tip: any room not over the market but that then will be over the main road.

Once u get to know the location, frenz is a great place to stay.

Unlike the negative reviews on this hotel, we didn't see ghosts and there wasn't a city wide lock down because of riots?

Zamzam next door provides a suitable breakfast and we even had a dinner there that was also worth while.

Frenz provide clean, cheap rooms with suitable amenities and friendly security on the door. Outside Noise can be a problem, but you are staying in a capital city.

Yes the area may look a little average but there is a money changed next door, a massive Indian run supermarket behind and train station just around the corner.

Since i've been traveling back and forth from Singapore to KL for business, i find this hotel to be the most worthiest of all other hotels around KL (specially if you love to visit Jln Masjid India). This is one budget hotel with quality services, almost better than 4-5 stars hotels around. Room may be small but compact, all necessities are available in the room. Modern furnishing and clean. Staffs are exceptionally friendly and helpful. WIFI is available for FREE! Hotel breakfast is at the Zam Zam restaurant right beside the hotel. Not a huge buffet but decent enough. You can order separately from the restaurant's menu if the breakfast buffet is not enough for you. :)

Location is good, although not in within the Golden Triangle, it's not that far off. LRT is just around the corner and Sogo is about 5 mins walk away from the hotel. The only downside is that the location could be quite dead after 8pm on weekdays but lively on a Saturday because of the night market. Heading to the hotel end of this month for another business trip and I can't wait to be back!

Room Tip: If you're staying over the weekends, request for a room away from the back alley view because th...

I stayed 8 nights and noticed no remarkable problems. Of course there are better Hotels in KL but the other factor is Money. According to the money you pay , you get more in this hotel. Wifi was great. Room cleaning was good. The front desk help was good. Air Con also working well. The only problem that I saw was noticing few small cockroaches in the room that after the first use of poison by the cleaning staff, all were gone and I didnt see anymore.Also the bed was a little short for me maybe because I am 185 cms tall!

Room Tip: If you only can sleep in quiet places, then don't choose the rooms next to the main street.

Also they lack communal area.
