“Good Value & Super Close to Petaling Street”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

We stayed at Lok Ann on two different stays in KL. We enjoyed both stays. The rooms are spacious and have high ceilings, a/c, and ceiling fans. The attached baths are basic but clean. The hotel provides clean white sheets and towels and comfy beds. Wi-fi worked in the rooms and the included breakfast was your basic eggs and toast but good. It is just across the street from the Petaling pedestrian street with all of its food options and shopping. It is also a short walk to the Pudu bus station and two lightrail stops. The rooms can be noisy during the day and evening but quiet down around 11-midnight or so when the street noise quiets down. The staff was the best part. Everyone we had dealings with were friendly, helpful, professional, and smiling. And, yes, we did see some animals of the rodent type poking around in the plants out on the terrace, but we've seen them all over the city. They just come with the 'big city' territory.

I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times, and in different types of rooms. The double rooms are better than the doorms.

NEGATIVES: The pictures they use for marketing look a lot better than what you get - Big rats (!!!) and cockroaches running around in the kitchen area since it is an open into the backyard/garden. Go out and eat a cheap meal instead of making you own at the hotel - Most of the bathrooms have problems either with the shower not working or the water pressure being really low. It was not a problem getting to shower in another room though - Dirty rooms and common areas compared to the other KL cheap hotels/hostels I've stayed in - Some of the beds are really old and uncomfortable - We got bedbug bites there on the last night when we got a blanket from a cupboard in the hallway, so make sure to spray all your things and your bags with bug spray before leaving the hotel. We put all our things in bags and spayed it before we closed it. Mind you, this is a thing you can get get in all sorts of hotels and hostels in warm countries though, so just take precautions instead. Always leave your bags away from the bed, check the matress for black dots, spray your skin with deet before going to bed, and when you come home, make sure to put your bags in a bin bag in the sun (I spray it with bug kill first), take in your clothes in one load at the time and out it in the washing machine on minimum 60 degrees, and the put the things that can not be washed in bags in the freezer for minimum 3 weeks. I told the staff about the bedbugs so I am sure they will have gotten rid of them in that room and cupboard.

POSITIVES: - Location, location, location! - Close to several MRT stations, trainstation etc - Main post office nearby if you are to send some things bach home while backpacking (seamail can be sent from the bottom floor of the post office) - Right next to Chinatown and the sound of the music will definitely get you up in the morning - The staff is really positive and helpful - You get a map where they have marked all the important things you need to see in the area and the MRT and train stations - They have their own guy who gives you advice and cheaper tickets for attractions and tours - The owner can drive you to the airport for a good price, and he is really knowledgeable and interesting to discuss Malaysian politics with - Loads of places to get food nearby - Close to shops and markets - Air.con in rooms - A cheap alternative in KL
