      1. The hotel location is great. It is very centrally located right in the middle of golden triangle. 2. Nicely appointed bedroom. The size is good. We had a pleasant stay. I like the nostalgic photo display on the wall. Very cleverly done.

      The staff could not have been more helpful and the room was quite spacious and comfortable. The breakfast provided was excellent with a massive choice of western and local cuisine. The roof-top pool and bar have a lively atmosphere and there is simple bar food available there in the evening. The hotel is well located with a lot of places to eat nearby. You can also walk easily to the monorail and bus stops (including the hop-on-hop-off service. An excellent hotel which is also good value.

      Excellent location, clean, friendly staff, good choice ”
      When someone commented on the towels being like rags, i thought it was exaggeration but it wasn’t. I wouldn’t use them to clean the floors, however, on day 3 we had brand new towels from then on. The hotel is in an excellent location, is comfortable and a good choice but not up to a 4 star hotel standard , no flannels, body lotion, hotel directory or tourist information etc....We went up to the roof bar for a drink but didn’t get out of the lift as the music was deafening- ok for youngsters. We also didnt like the look of the breakfast. We will stay here again because the shower was the best we have ever experienced and the location is great. The staff were helpful and friendly. We were also given a quiet room so were very comfortable here overall.

      Impressed.”
      I was v impressed with the level of service at the KL Journal. The initial impression was of a hipster 'boutique' hotel, but the warmth n hospitality of all the staff made me feel welcome n to write this review. I felt that the staff feel happy working there n welcomed all who stayed there. One of the evenings, i was interupted by a staff who brought a snack to wish me a pleasant evening! Truly experienced malaysia's warmth hospitality during my stay in KL.. and did i mention the bar/pool at the rooftop? Highly reccomended!

      Hotel is in strategic locAtion, monorail is just few minutes walk, pavilion or lot 10 also just 5-10 minutes walk. Very convenient but you might have to walk pass crowded road with lots of foreigners, not sure if it is safe. Jalan alor is also nearby where you can taste the local cuisine. As for the hotel itself, breakfast is good, bed is comfortable , clean and spacious. The pool bar is also comfortable. There’s welcome drink at pool bar which is quite good, you are allowed to order from their extensive drink menu until 12am. Normally other hotels only offer tasteless juice. There’s no kids pool but overall the pool bar has a little view and quite relaxing after a tired day. Parking is limited.

Easy walking distance to Jalan Alor and staff were professional throughout. Room spacious, WiFi worked, desk comfortable to work at. Limited stock in bar but easy to fill up with own stuff.

      Essentially a good stay with a spacious hotel room and helpful service staff. Only gripe was the really tight carpark space and a little rowdy neighbourhood due to the nightspots nearby. Great for party goers and shopholics, less so for people who just need a quiet and relaxing space.

      Fantastic hotel in vibrant area”
      I loved this hotel. I was in KL for a stop-over and would have extended my stay if my itinerary had allowed. Beautifully designed, spacious room with desk, great shower and very comfortable bed. I loved the room's artwork (photography), small souvenirs (555 book), magazines and retro feel. The rooftop pool was a great way to cool off and enjoy drinks and the sunset. Breakfast was epic with loads of options. I didn't get a chance to explore the area in great depth, but the hotel is a short walk from Jalan Sultan Ismail which was very lively at night and had great food. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Would definitely stay again.

      Location is not bad. Not too near, not too far from the main Bukit bintang area. Staff was great and helpful. Rooms were clean but the only downside was the aircon. Changed my room twice and the aircon was only blowing towards the windows and not circulating especially to the bed area. Since I was staying for 2 nights, I couldn't be bothered to ask for a room change for the 3rd time.
