    Best hotel in Chinatown”

    This hotel is perfect, everything is right on your doorstep. The rooms are amazing, big balcony, when you book a watersuite. I go back time and time again and after staying many place around KL sentral for years Id not go anywhere else after discovering this gem! Breakfast good, staff amazing. Book it!

    Fantastic Location & Comfortable Hotel”

    Spacious room in a hotel located strategically in KL's Chinatown. The room decor is pretty old and tired, but it is roomy and has everything needed to make it a comfortable stay. Its right smack in Chinatown, and has its own parking, a distinct advantage for those who drive. Parking fee is very reasonable, only RM5 per entry for hotel guests. We left our car parked there and went everywhere on foot. Skip the breakfast provided - you're better off eating delicious, fresh food in Chinatown than the stodgy hotel breakfast. We stayed there 2 nights and totally love the location of this hotel. Will definitely be back again.

    Modern and comfortable hotel in chinatown”

    Smooth and fast check in late in the night. The receptionist boy who welcomed us on 28.05.2019 was very friendly and professional!! Room very clean, super comfy bed, elegant design, no noise from the street below, kettle in the room appreciated. Breakfast was simple but included in price. Check out easy and fast. We just spent there 1short night between KL transfer, but will come back for our next visit as the location is really convenient (supermarket, street food, restaurants, atm, laundry, bus station, train station, etc at walking distance).

    Cheap n good food at just door steps. Massage places open v late and is just 5 mins walk from Hotel. Chinatown night market which open at 11am - 12am is just a lane away from Hotel. Shopping Malls ie SingNei Wang, Berjaya Time Square is just Grabcab RM5, if you know the way to walk back, is about 15mins walk. The bus terminal for KL-Genting Resort bus is behind the hotel, about 5 mins walk. Can walk there to buy the tickets in advance n know the timing to depart.

    Best hotel”

    Honestly it was probably the best hotel in china town, my room was on 11 floors which i had a nice view ! The room was clean and nice ! I really like my stay there ! The only things that i didnt like it was the breakfast hours its 7-10 i had to wake super early to eat or some days i just missed it. They should put 7-12 am for breakfast bit overall i enjoy my stay and i do recommend this place !

Very good location, you can buy food, souvenirs, etc in the Chinatown. It's also just a walking distance from Pudu Raya, LRT Station, Go KL Bus Stop and Central Market.

    Windows could be cleaner”

    Location is great, right in Chinatown. I stayed on 12th floor in a twin room. It’s very spacious and there’s a view of the city with a tip of one of the Petronas towers. However the windows should be cleaned from the outside since I barely had any actual view due to all the dust and dirt. The inside of the closet was chipped and cracked in places. The rest was good, clean bathroom with a shower, delicious warm breakfast buffet.
