  • 8.0.Very good

    This has to be one of the best value hotels in the area, however there's a single thing that killed my stay there. There was a LOUD thumping noise going on 24/7, it sounded like the bathroom doors were being slammed at regular periods (but they weren't bathroom doors). Never figured what it was but it was very displeasing noise specially at night.

    so convenient! all places are walkable and you can get GOKL, the free shuttle bus, just at the corner of the road. staff are nice. hotel decoration is good enough, very modern. room is nice but with poor sound insulation. you can hear people running in the room clearly. Overall, hotel is recommended!

    Great hotel, great location

    Really great hotel. The room was a good size, with a nice bathroom and hot shower. It had tea, coffee and mini bar. The staff are lovely, very friendly and helpful. There’s plenty of choice for breakfast and there’s a nice pool and pool bar. The location is fantastic, in Bukit Bintang only a few mins walk from the train station and the bus stops, including the free ‘Go KL' bus. It’s just off a main road which is ideal for a solo female traveller like me. I’d definitely stay again!
