We already expected a simple but clean & comfortable place to stay-in while at Kuala Lumpur based on previous reviews. Our room was indeed very clean & basic comfort of guests was generally addressed. You can visit the key tourist sites in the city through the KL Hop-on Hop-off Bus where its Bus Stop No. 7 is just along Tengkat Tong Shin (only a few meters away from the hotel). Jalan Alor & Bukit Bintang are in walking distance too. Taxis were not a problem during our stay.The young hotel staff were very friendly & helpful (they do speak English).
What became a disappointment to us is the very bare ambience of the room, as in plain grey concrete/cement walls & floor. If you are used to cheerful & spacious rooms, you would really feel claustrophobic. I hope the hotel management do have plans to spruce up their rooms in the future. We've seen how rich & beautiful the Malaysian culture is in terms of traditional art/crafts, including their great love for nature. Improvement of room ambience following these concepts, or whatever is deemed consistent to the hotel design, will make the guests' stay more pleasant & will also allow more guests to patronize the hotel whenever they visit KL. There are actually better hotels charging the same price range that they do. I do hope they consider this customer feedback because we wish them truly well. Anyway, we just didn't let this disappointment ruin our KL visit. We focused more on enjoying our tour of Kuala Lumpur (day & night) to the max.
