There were actually many good things about this hotel. The location was great. It was right next to the Majid Jamek LTR station. It took a bit of walking through a market to get to it, but most people seemed to know where it was. The staff was really helpful. Whenever we had a problem or needed a suggestion/recommendation they were more than happy to help. The rooms were larger than I expected for a budget hotel.
On the other hand, my friend I stayed in an outside room with a window. At first we thought we were luckier than our friends who got an inside room without one. When we were woken up at 5:30 AM by the local mosque's call to prayer, we realized we weren't as lucky as we'd thought. Even with the earplugs we bought, the next morning was not as restful as we'd hoped. There was also the night were one friend went to get water and then came running back to our room thinking the hotel was on fire. In reality, they were fumigating the hotel (because of mosquitoes) ...with everyone inside.
In summary, the location was good, the staff was friendly, and the overall experience was really strange.
