Went with a group of 4 friends last December, and to our surprise, the room was not as bad as what we thought it would be! THough it was kind of small, but the cleaniness made up for it all. Bathroom facilities were all in working condition, and the window was facing the petronas tower! It was a pleasant experience. Worth your money, guys!
With regards to the front desk service, although they are helpful and cheerful, but sometimes, they may give the wrong information, especially on bus services and routes around the place. So it will be a great idea, if you could check out on the routes beforehand, to prevent any misunderstandings.
Oh yes, when you book online, although there is a function that states any special request, i am not so sure if you could just take it with a pinch of salt. We requested higher floors with regards to our rooms, but they gave us the fourth floor, and also they gave us a room within smoking area, which we really cannot take it.
Nonetheless, in this coming Jan 2012, I will be heading down to Cititel express once again, with my family as the overall experience was great, and i introduced this to my family. I sincerely hope that we are able to get high floor, with strictly no smoking room though! And hopefully, it will be a better experience for us! ;)
