We stayed here for one night on a quick stopover in KL. We've stayed in KL many times and have always had trouble finding any decent budget accommodation. Lodge Paradize was only a few dollars more than the crappy budget hostel we stayed in last time, so we decided to give it a go. Whilst the hotel is clearly still needing a little bit of TLC, it does have quite an old school charm. If you are in to old buildings then you will likely enjoy this place. If you are looking for a swish modern hotel then maybe try somewhere else. Everything from the retro lift to the stair bannisters are pretty funky and old and our 'standard' room was really good, with nice parquetry floors, solid brick walls, a nice big window and a decent sized bathroom. The standard room doesn't have a fridge or TV, but we didn't really need that anyway. The reception staff could be a little bit more welcoming and friendly, although they were helpful in getting a taxi etc. The included breakfast is better than most budget hotels but don't expect a fancy buffet! The old swimming pool is still not functioning and is currently just a water feature next to the restaurant.
The wifi didn't work at all on the 4th floor.
Bathroom was nice and clean with good hot shower and towels provided.
Hotel is located in a nice, quiet area but still only a 5 min walk (or 1 monorail stop) from all the big shopping centres etc. The monorail escalator is literally right out the main entrance of the hotel.
It looks like there is till some work to be done here. eg, The garden could do with a bit of work..
I just hope that in fixing up this hotel they don't destroy the old-school charm!
Definitely recommended as a good budget option in a good location and with a bit of character!
