We stayed here for nearly 10 days during our last visit to KL. It is centrally located and very close to Pasar Seni and KL train stations. The staff here is very helpful and they offered my mother a wheel-chair accessible quadruple room in the third floor, as opposed to our original booking (triple room) which had some steps to...

There are a lot of pros and cons to this place. And a few very minimal things could make it really livable. Cons; First off my girl and I got a room with 2 double beds. One bed was higher than the other so when we pushed them together someone kept falling between the beds. It was funny the first...

Stayed 3 nights. Walls are thin. You can smell cigarette smoke in the room somehow, you can hear noise from the street (alhtough our room had a cool view of the petronas tower). Bathroom very small (you'll be showering on top of the toilet) -- but frankly, we'd book here again if we were to come back to KL =...

On the positive side the hotel is well located, cheap and the rooms we had were quite clean as well. Reception staff was helpful and kind and they booked us an airport transfer at a very reasonable price.
