“Comfortable solution for budget travelers”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

The Hotel is in a very good location, in the heart of China Town (as the name suggests), very close to sites of interest like Masjid Jamek, The Central mall and Merdeka Square, and walking distance (for the bravest) to the Petronas Towers.
The value for money is fair, even for Asian standards. Rooms are maybe quite small (and with no windows) but they are clean and the beds are comfortable. Moreover Chinatown area is quiet at night so no problems at all for sleeping.
Overall our stay was brief but pleasant, nothing to complain with.
If in KL for few days, I suggest to give it a chance!

We could take a walk to all type of transport mode like Train, Metro or Bus was all located nearby which was the best part of the hotel, Located in the middle of busty Street we reached early morning around 3 am the Streets were very empty , when came out after the nap street started getting filled with street vendors, by evening the street was so full that we could not take a straight walk , rooms and clean and decent staff are helpful, Price they offered was very good

very nice clean rooms, little noisy on first floor, as the china market is just outside your window. Staff from night shift is really nice with welcoming smile..

We booked at the last minute. The price was great. It was hard to find the hotel because its entrance is hidden by a packed, bustling night market. We got lucky and found it. I am glad we only had hand luggage with us. The entrance is up a high, steep staircase, which would be impossible for anyone in a wheelchair and a nightmare with heavy luggage. The room was windowless and on the entrance level. It was quiet, except for the early morning when we could hear loud voices from reception. Internet is MYR1 for 10 minutes. The room was clean.
The location is fantastic for late night shopping. Major public transport is within walking distance.

We stopped over for a night in KL between Penang and Melaka and just wanted a cheap place in a decent location so we could see a few things we missed the first time round and this ticked most boxes.

The room was windowless, which was less of an issue than I expected but I wouldn't want to do it for more than 1 night, and for the price it was ok.

The location on Petaling Street in the heart of Chinatown was excellent, despite the busy market I thought it easy to find and the reception was a sanctuary from the manic market below!

It wasn't the best nights sleep we've ever had or the cleanest place, and the lift was a bit old and juddery, but it is kind of what I expected and I would recommend for a 1 night cheap stopover.

Compared to other places within this price range it's one of the better options, I would say. The hotel is directly on Petaling street and that means it's great for shopping (if you want to buy cheap fake stuff and souvenirs). The staff is friendly, the beds are really comfortable and the shower is good. That's all of the positive things I can say. The not so good things are that the rooms are very noisy (not from the street though as most of the rooms don't have windows but from other guests and the reception), it's not really clean (we had lots of hair in our bed), it's not possible to regulate the aircondition (so our room was really cold) and the wifi internet didn't work very well. But as I already stayed in a view other places in KL as well, I know that you cannot expect more for 80 RM per night. You have to go more expensive if you want to have anything better than this, otherwhise it's a good option.

Room Tip: If you stay on the first floor (where the reception is) you also have the noise coming from the rece...
