          Pro: Good location, near to Jalan Alor and Bukit Bintang, less than 5 minutes walk to near Monorial, Family-Mart,Free Welcome drink at pool side, enjoyable & Instagram-able pool view, free soft drink in room, good room design Con: No obvious signage / indicator to Hotel Parking ( i park at outside of the hotel & thought that is hotel parking which cost rm10/entry ) , the level of sound-proofing is less satisfaction, the Pool size is small Overall , Is a good choice of staying in heart of KL .

          Great option in Bukit Bintang”

          Overall, staff, location, room cleanliness and rooftop bar are top notch. We had a room on a middle floor and still, the views were great as we could see one of the Petronas towers. The neighborhood behind the hotel is super seedy with the biggest rats ever, but the street front is perfectly safe/appealing. My one actual complaint is that EVERY time our across the hall neighbors opened their door it would be loud enough to wake us both from a deep sleep. Super creaky and annoying. Other than that, the place is "fancy" by my backpacker standards and is on a street right by the Bintang monorail. Staff were super helpful calling us cheaper, Grab cars every time we needed. The area behind the rat street does have some wild bars if you're looking for nightlife which is a bonus. Close by to Petaling and Alor, easy walks to and from both. Despite the neighborhood behind, there was always a friendly security guy on duty. Easily would stay here again.

          Location of the hotel will have many foreign workers around that maybe will be dangerous when at night. Light of the room is too less which will look darker at night. 10am chasing us to check out its very disappointing which policy is stated check out time at 12pm.

          I loved staying in this hotel. In millenial terms, it is definitely instagrammable. They had beautiful interiors, and the room was updated. The bed was very comfy, we always had a nice rest after a long day of touring different places. We walked a lot, so it was nice to come home to a beautiful room. The food choices during breakfast also varied everyday. I was always excited to try the different dishes they had. I will definitely stay here again.

          Stayed 2 nights in this boutique hotel and very satisfied with the room. Its big and clean with a king size bed. Location is convenient, near MRT station and walk about 5-10 minutes to pavilion. There are also alot of shops around the area. There is free parking in hotel too. Carpark lot is a little weird, we have to drive up a “metal lot” and its very difficult to get in and out of the car. Overall its a nice hotel with the price we paid!

          The bus stop for 3 free lines is right outside the hotel. Jalan Alor and other food places are within walking distance. Plaza Low Yat (bargain computer centre) is also within walking distance. Pavillion and other shopping places are nearby yet the hotel is peaceful and pleasant. The bed and pillows are super comfortable. Salt water pool is a nice oasis to escape from the heat. Staff is friendly and helpful. The cleaner for the room is a hero.

The room is spacious with comfy bed and nice bedroom. We also got a nice view of Petronas Twin Tower from our room window. The front desk, doorman, and the lobby security were all nice and helpful.

          Great experience at this hotel. Nice clean spacious rooms. Good buffet breakfast with additional complementary cooked breakfast menu which changed daily. Location was great. Walking distance to Pavilion shopping centre and PETRONAS Towers. Only downside for this hotel was the early closing time for roof top pool. It closes at 7pm (doesn't even get dark till 7.30/8pm!) but the bar is open till 10pm?! Would have been better if the pool was also open till 10pm!

          It was ok- the design of the hotel is very nice (especially the rooms), but the pool and gym could be better maintained. Staff aren’t super welcoming in general. Expected a little bit more for the price and based on the pictures, but it wasn’t bad.
