This inexpensive hotel is looking very tired. Carpets are worn and stained in places. Rooms have the appearance of not having been modernised since the mid 1990s. Bathrooms dated with some cracked tiles, but very good showers. All very clean however and good beds (probably newer than much of the surroundings)
Against its tired appearance, it is in a good central location and easy to reach by public transport.
A pretty good breakfast buffet is laid on and if you pay for a club room, you have access to a lounge serving complimentary snacks and alcoholic drinks. Well laid out central lobby bar. Live music put on each night makes conversation difficulty, but will appeal to those who like that sort of thing.
Free and reliable wifi in central lobby and club lounge. Not in rooms (unless you are able to pick it up from either of those locations)
Good outdoor swimming pool. Quite well laid out gym, although changing rooms reminded me of being back at school. Good steam room, sauna suffers from being a bit too big for the size oven provided. I suppose though that life in KL at this time of the year is one giant steam bath!
