I was staying there for 2 night with my mom..
We were in lower floor room with twin tower n KL tower view..
Nice n comfy room 2 stay.. I guess i got the renovated room, since the alley looks old..
Lil bit noisy from the band outside at night,but only until 1am, after that no problem..
I took the superior room which didn't get mineral water as a compliment, but the reception offers me a jug of water..
There is a 24hrs mini market n internet spot right in front of this hotel..
Surrounded by sungei wang,low yat,berjaya times square, and only take 5 minutes walk from Bukit Bintang Monorail..

Over all,i like staying there...
And the price is great..

I just stayed on this hotel for 3 nights. If you arrive on KLIA, by using Premium Taxi, you have to pay about MYR 112 to get to this hotel include toll fee and it will take about 1 hour.

You can get to your room after 15:00, if you come before this timing, you check in first after that you can walk around shopping area up to 15:00.
Lobby room very crowded during some visitor have to check in or check out, there is only 1 row seat for 4 persons available. Room condition is quite different from the photograph that you can see on internet. The floor carpet on the room looks like worn out and not so clean and also still use 21” CRT TV and with limited channel programs. There is no car parking on this hotel, only temporary parking area available, therefore please be consider if you want to stay in this hotel with the car. In afternoon and evening, there is traffic jam in front of this hotel due to many cars will enter or out to parking area of Sungei Wang Plaza.

During I stayed on this hotel, I found same menu on the breakfast everyday, I don’t know what is the reason? But many variety of breakfast food with the good taste. But I was disturbed by service person during washed the dishes very noise looks like thrown down the things.

Location of this hotel is very good. You can get easily by walking for Shopping Area such as Sungei Wang, Bukit Bintang Plaza, Low Yat and Times Square. Many taxi, waiting for passenger in front of hotel but usually they don’t want to use meter and you have to bargain to get to somewhere. But you can get easily taxi by using meter, if you wait in front of lobby Low Yat Plaza, beside this hotel. So many food court, local and international restaurant available on this area, don’t worry for food availability. From you room you can see directly Petronas Tower if you have good direction.

Only 5 minutes by walking you can get to Bukit Bintang Station, and only pay MYR 2.4 to get to KL Sentral Station. If you a Moslem People, you can “Friday Pray / Jumaah Sholat” on bis mosque on Hangtuah area. You can walk by 15 minutes or by Monorail (Bukit Bintang – Imbi – Hangtuah).

As overall this hotel is good for location, and you can enjoy staying on this hotel also surrounding condition.

Room Tip: Please select room to front direction of this hotel.

Stayed at Capitol twice. Rooms are very clean. Location is good, nearest to Low Yat Mall (electronic gadgets). Short walk to Times Square, Sg Wang, Pavilion, Jalan Alor for food.
The receptionist is friendly. The rate is quite cheap. Sometimes during low season, can get around RM 220. The hotel has no swimming pool or gym facilities. Just a basic hotel.

Stayed for a night in the deluxe room after checking out from Hotel Imperial and before checking in to the Royale Bintang.

Check in was fast & accurate, my request for high floor was met (I was given a room on the 16th floor).

The room is clean and look like it has been recently refurbished but old CRT TV. Location very good, just beside the Sungei Wang plaza. Breakfast on the M floor had a wide range and not very crowded and noisy which is very good.

Hotel has good security features, I felt secure staying in this hotel as keycard activation is required in order to access the room, much better than Hotel Imperial and Royale Bintang which had none. Hotel does not have a swimming pool though.

In-room dining menu looks good but I didnt try it, instead I went to the cafe on lobby level and tried the chicken chop which was very delicious.

Great location, short walk from lots of bars, restaurants and malls. Also the station is very close by.
Check-in unfortunately took a while as it was peak season, but the rooms were excellent and worth the wait.

Room Tip: choose the premium ( 10 rooms), they provide the best view of the city at night

We stay here every time we are in KL. it is right next to Low Yat and Sungei Wang plazas, so very convenient for shopping. Walking distance to the bars and restaurants on Changkat Bukit Bintang. Rooms are nice and breakfast is good. The staff are friendly and helpful.
