Good value budget hotel

Rooms are dark - no hair dryer, toothbrush etc. Central location - situated inside of Chinatown. Will choose a different place to stay next time we visit KL.

Good value for money

A couple of hrs aft check-in we saw a bed bug crawling on the bed! We requested fr immediate refund and check-out but instead were upgraded to bigger better rm with the assurance tht it was bed-bug free. True enough we had a comfortable stay fr the nxt 5 days! Ask fr rm on 6th flr, no bugs more quiet n nice view of street. If u take the deal with breakfast, get there before 9am otherwise all thts left is remnant of food :o

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Get a hotel/motel/inn on Jalan Sultan instead which is nxt street frm Jalan Petaling. It's less crowded, has less unsavoury characters but with all the convenience of getting around. However, BEWARE OF BED BUGS!

Hotel smells Bad, good base if u want to explore china town ... not to sleep or long stay

We stayed here the first 2 nigts of our trip. The smell as walked into our room was putrid, between durion fruit and Mould/salt damp when we put the aircon on was alittle better, would have asked for a change of room but didnt gethere til 12:30am from a 16h flights and layovers, and justwanted to sleep, Location wise, If u are not fermilluar with kl, if you dont arrivein kl before 9am or after 11:30 pm this is not a good hotel to first come to, the streets here are filled with markets, and no cars can com down.. it is smack bang in the middle of chaos... beware if u arrive around midnight the road is free of vendors but filled with trash and rats, it is quickly cleaned up with in hour or 2 but looks like a dump:-) If you wanted to just explore china town and petaling markets well. This hotel would make a good base to return to store your shopping, refresh with shower , have a arvo sleep or just returning to ice cold aircon was nice... worth $25 in that respect They offer a saftey box at desk for 5 myr for entire stay Has free wifi but hit and miss with service from floor 6 get 1 bar cutting in and out and pretty slow... Sheets and towels are clean fresh and white Tv had a movie channel in english but was smallest crt tv i have ever seen Overall for a short stop over it was ok... but dont get to excited to come to this hotel Avoid room 618

Budget hotel, but look around

This is a small, budget hotel in the heart of KL's bustling Chinatown. It is easy to get around from here on foot, but the main drawback is that it is in the middle of a mall that is crowded from noon with hawkers' stalls, making it hard to find, and access with luggage very difficult (although the staff will offer to help). Our room was clean but poky, with insufficient space for our luggage. Unlike many other hotels in the region, there is no statement prohibiting the consumption of foul-smelling durians in rooms, and unfortunately, someone had done this in our room, leaving an unpleasant odour that was hard to get rid of. There are better alternatives in the vicinity - look for one where the taxi can drop you at the front door.
