    Pleasant stay overall”

    Apart from the paint on the wall that has peeled, the room & toilet were clean. It was equipped with a foot massage machine that I have never encountered in other budget hotel. It is located just opposite of the LRT station. While offering the travel convenience, the noise from the station is actually audible in the room with window.

    How not to treat a repeat customer?”

    Having stayed frequently at Sovotel 79@Kelana Jaya (before 73@KJ was ready), I enjoyed all my experiences. To my surprise, when I checked in on Wed 19th, it took the front desk more than 15 minutes to locate my booking and get it done. In the process, I had to prompt him on taking a photocopy of my passport, amount of cash payment etc. Wonder if it is this chap's off day or it happens often. I wonder if it was painful for him to take off the morose look. Anyway, I intend to book @73KJ next time, just in case

    Disgusting”

    We checked in at 10pm and was given a room. When we enter the room, it was not cleaned yet with blankets and towels all messed up. Went down to the receptionist and request for a new room. New room was normal but with hairs in bed. Suspected there's no proper housekeeping. The next day at 1130 morning, recept call and ask if we are going to check out or late check out. It is a 12pm check out and I have no idea why he called us! LOL!

    The bed sheet is in bad condition with hole everywhere. And i doubt they changed the bed sheet since last check out because i found out some hair on the bed the moment i step in. Other than this, too noisy at the ground floor. Cant sleep at all. Other than this, everything is GOOD AND EXCELLENT.

    Disappointed”

    The room was very run down and with a strong smoking smell. We couldn’t accept the room and ask to change, the reception changed another room for us which is slightly bigger and with window. The second room was a bit better, but still quite run down. Bathroom light was very dim, heater had a loud noise when turned on. Seriously we were not comfortable staying there. This was the first time we stayed in Sovotel as I know the Kota Damansara branch was quite alright. But we were very disappointed with this branch. We have decided not to stay at that area anymore because we noticed someone broke the window of one of the car parked near to us the next morning, thank God it’s not our car!

    Good stay”

    The hotel room was decent for the price, the room were also provided with Gintel Foot Massage, as a standard room I’m impressed that they have that. However, theres no window, not even a small window. Thus the room were quiet stuffy and there’s no natural source of light that prevent from odour. The tv channel were limited but decent enough. I’m very much very dissapointed because of the wifi, I cant connect to the wifi and the staff was not doing much help in terms of that. Other than that, it was pretty good stay.

    One of the best hotels i have been to so far ”

    Everything was perfect! I dont even know where to start from. Firstly, the employee was really kind and nice. They even listened to my special request which is for a higher floor! The room was really nice, i loved the lighting in the toilet and the room was clean. The first downside about this hotel is there is no lifts. So i wouldnt recommend elderly to take higher floor because it can be tiring because there are alot of steps. The second is the plugs cannot support laptop chargers because it tends to shortcircut everytime i plug it inOtherwise, there wasnt any disturbance at all.

    Sovotel is the most clean and comfortable hotel in the same grade hotel, even better than some higher star hotel. The foot massage machine is a great surprise and value add, I really appreciate it. The location is good, consider it locate opposite the LRT station and also available with 24hours convenient shop, local food restaurant even vegetarian restaurant nearby.

    I transferred to Puchong Sovotel Hotel from Kelana Jaya Sovotel Hote due to water disruption. I'm really unsatisfied and unhappy with their services. There is no any toiletries given in the hotel room. I requested to clean the room before I leave the hotel but the staff didn't clean at all. When I came back I saw the room was messy and the staff admitted that she forgot to inform the room service.

    Stay here a few time already but always got annoy with the receptionist. There was one time that i late check out, i check out at 12.15pm. The receptionist called and said if i didnt check within 15mins , she will charged me for late an hour. If go to other hotel downside of the road, i late check out at 1.15pm but still their service is okay and the receptionist also okay. Also got lift. If here, had to climb a mountain of stair. The pro of this hotel compared by the other hotel downside of the road is only the tv channel.
