A good hotel is never good enough but a bad hotel is a joy forever. (Our family motto.)
Well, everything on this site written about musty carpets, sagging mattresses, and gloomy halls is true, except, if you love trains, the joy of this hotel is that from some rooms (not sure which, but mine) you listen to the sounds of trains in the station all night long. I know, an acquired taste, but maybe for some of you the stuff of dreams.
Someday, a swanky hotel group will snap up this hotel, turn it into a palace on (above?) train wheels, and the rates will go from $50 to $350 a night. In the meantime, the hotel is perfect for coming and going on local trains, which I found delightful. Langkawai, Penang, Singapore: all easy train rides from KL.
Guys, your wives or girlfriends will not thank you for a night in this hotel, but for those who love the sound of engines shunting in the night, here's your hotel.
