Fuss Free and slightly luxurious stay
clean,central location,value for money
This hotel is centrally located WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE of KLCC and Bukit Bintang.I am very impressed with the way they serve their coffee which is unique.Still using brass teapot with a very delicate teacup placing.Value for money and comfortable environment to have coffee.Overall the hotel room is great but the the paint kept peeling off from the hotel bathroom floor.That's the only setdown.Otherwise no beating the price of this hotel for a night stay in central KL.

Centrally located hotel in the heart of KL
big room, fast check in, great breakfast!
Hotel is in a good location, value for money for a 5 star hotel, you can basically camp here to reach out the any destination of interest in the heart of Kuala Lumpur!

Stayed one night in March 2014
Comfortable and enjoyable
Nice and Quiet surrounding, yet near to the shopping district. Beautiful grand lobby with great live music at night.
Its a very nice and grand hotel. But maybe a little bit old, and maybe time to replace the CRT TV. I love the quite surrounding, the pool and the grand lobby, where I like to relax and do some surfing on my phone. The location is also great, it is just a few minutes walk from the heart of the shopping district. The room is nice and the bed is comfortable. However, during check in and check out time, sometimes it gets too crowded and may have to wait quite long.
