        Need to improve ”

        Room very small and with only bed and hooks (no desk, chair, there isn’t space for them); definitely needs shelves near the bed and in the toilet. Internet connection is too slow to be real in 2019! It’s hard to even open an email... The hotel is noisy, you will hear the neighbor guests opening and closing the doors

        Worth every penny!”

        It is located at the center of Chinatown. Food and shopping is literally outside the hotels door step. Don't expect parking space. It's 4-5 minutes walk to Central market and 5 minutes more to Dataran Merdeka and Sultan Abdul Samad building. Breakfast is more than what we expected. The Room is clean in general. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Props to the front desk clerk on-duty last May 23, 2019.

        Pleasant stay... staff are nice and has initiative...”

        It was a good stay to summarize. A pleasant hotel at the heart of Chinatown. Accessible to public transport. The only problem was during my stay 19 to 21 Apr, there was a booking made all for a group/ an organization I guess. It became really noisy and I realized that the room soundproofing is not that good. Anyway, it was not a big deal for me. Chinatown area is always noisy in the first place. I am recommending this especially those that are doing foodtripping/ foodwalking.

        I must have been flustered carrying my bags or something, but I never saw the buzzer to have someone let you in the building. Overall a clean place in a neat area. Was only here for a short time so I didn't get a chance to try out the breakfast, but the facilities looked nice.

        The location is very central......you are literally right in the center of Chinatown and within close proximity to the train station The hotel is modern, clean and inviting The room was small but perfectly functional, we had a room with a balcony which had a view over Chinatown and gave a feeling of added space. The only down side for us, was the mattress,unfortunately it was old, soft and dipped in the middle. After sleeping on it for just two days our backs were in bad shape...for this reason i wouldn't stay here again Other than the mattress, i would recommend this hotel for the price and location it is perfect

        Average”

        The design of the room limits us as the bed and bathroom had occupied basically the entire room. Everything in the room looks brand new as shown in the web just that the bed is has this problem where we sleep on or turn over, the bed rack noise irritated us and due to the room is not really soundproof you might hear noises from another room during the stay. No wardrobe/clothes rack, just a wooden ladder where they hang bath towels on and a small built-in table to place your things, not really advisable if you plan to carry a luggage into this room but overall the cleanliness is satisfying.

        Very strategically located. Near to Pasar Seni LRT n Bus hub. Very culturally designed. Got a lovely terrace for hangout overlooking busy street of Chinatown. Room was clean n simplistic. But without any kind of storage area it might be hard if you have many luggage. Hot shower, towel, body wash and shampoo is provided though no toothbrush. No TV neither. But will come again for a short stay!
