    Room looks like a prison-cell and door to shower don't cover that much. In fact we would advise you to skip the entire Chinatown altogether, its filthy and disgusting.

    Very good. Avoid the restaurant directly below the Inn. They tried to pad the bill; charge me for napkin use and ice and sent rice to my table that I didn't order acting as if it was free- which it wasn't, also a 5 percent service charge which is only revealed at bill time. Which I didn't pay. Really pathetic cheap hustle.

    We stayed in one of the rooms right behind the reception and it was ok, simple room and quite clean bathrooms. Wouldn´t recommend this place for longer stay, but it´s ok for one or two nights. The price is the cheapest around and the location is really good.

    Cockroach everywhere”

    My room was full of cockroaches since the moment that I entered. One staff had just finished to clean the room when I entered, but a little cockroach was on the bed. We asked for a insecticide, and they lent us. So, my husband sprayed all over the room, and we found lots of very little cockroaches in the corners of the walls. It was a very difficult night... Moreover, baths are not clean and too small.

    I booked a room for myself, it was pretty ascetic, more like a cell. Staff was kind of ok, but they gave me some tips as for where to go. For the same money I've seen in KL much nicer, cleaner and cosier places, so generally I was happy to check out.
