    My recent trip was a working 3 days trip. Upon checking in.. I was about to open the door room 312 and it was semi locked and they were 2 ladies inside the room lying on the bed... and they told me they were the cleaners there having a rest. I was alright with them but they should not lie on the bed that was actually meant for guest. Overall stay was awesome... I will be back again ;)

    Excellent”

    Excellent location, right in the middle of Petsling street with restaurants and food hawker stands everywhere. Close to Pudo central bus station and the metro train line, a quick 5 minute walk for either one. If your western taste buds don’t care for the local cuisine there is McDonald’s, KFC and Starbucks all within 5 minute walks, lots of money exchange stores and banks all over the place. Great shopping that really comes to life in the evenings. The only thing I didn’t like was the very thin doors, your can hear every conversation your neighbor has and if you get a neighbor that doesn’t care about other people then it can be very annoying, we had Chinese tourist all around our room and they were extremely annoying going back and forth to each other’s rooms all night long, merely closing the door sounds like it’s slamming shut, there are ways to quietly close the door if you have half a brain, if your neighbor is thoughtful of others it’s ok.

    Pretty good”

    Location is terrific, right in the middle of petaling street where there’s a great market that really comes to life in the evenings, there are restaurants and hawker food stands all around it, it’s 2 blocks away from the train station and 4 blocks from the main bus station, couldn’t ask for better location wise. The only gripe I have is the paper thin door and walls to the room, every conversation can be heard from your neighbor. We had some very loud and obnoxious Chinese tourists that stayed directly across from us and to our immediate left, they were going back and forth to their room every 10 minutes, closing the doors and having conversations, closing the door literally sounds like they are slamming it, there are ways to close the door quietly. It’s not bad if you have respectable neighbors but if you have the obnoxious one that only cares about themselves it is very annoying.

    Great location, extremely clean, comfortable and peaceful.”

    We had a very peaceful month stay here and extended several times after looking into other places and finding that this is probably the best choice for a base in KL. We stayed in the deluxe queen with windows and a table, a good room to be a base. Very nice cleaning ladies, helpful and friendly staff, hot/cold drinking water, printing at reception, right in the middle of Chinatown for good food and roti canai is here too at night so 0 travel time required for food anytime -- overall our best choice. Thank you :)

    This is a clean hotel to stay in the middle of the Chinatown. Good for the family even if you are with elders (but make sure they can walk up in a short stairs to reach the lobby, but the hotel has an elevator for you to reach the rooms) Superb WIFI connection! The Cons are only: toothbrush/toothpaste and slippers are not included. Overall, this is a best place to stay esp. if you love night market!

    Second time again...”

    The most strategic location in Chinatown on budget price...

    My husband asked me to book this hotel again after the first experience staying..First,the hotel no against early check-in as early as 5am when we arrived to KL by express bus can have early sleep quickly once entered the hotel.Ever more,free of charge unlike most 99% of neighbour hotels did.Second, the mattress is very thick but the bad is pillow too thin and only one for each.Bathroom is basic but very clean. Got soap,shampoo,shower cap,sanitary bag and two clean towels free of charge. A very happy simple stay for sure but bear in mind you shouldn't ask for 5 star room facility at budget rate...
