“Value for money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

I've stayed in this hotel 2 weeks ago and I must say it is truly recommended as a budget hotel. Although the room is small, but it is clean with no weird smell, the bed is comfortable, and the TV channels are clear. You know how some hotel have lots of channels but most of it are blurry and non-watchable.
The location of this hotel is well-located, less than a minute walk to the LRT station.
The only drawback of this hotel is it doesn't have any water dispenser for the guest. However, they do provide a free mineral water bottle in the room.
Oh, and don't expect a cafe within the hotel because of its small scale. They do provide breakfast but it's just a voucher that you can use within a day on other restaurants nearby the hotel. Although I never use it but i think this is a good touch of value to the customer.

The hotel fits all the parameters, incase looking for a budget hotel. The best part is the location. it is next to an LRT interchange and market. The rooms are clean, though not big and the amenities basic.

The people are nice at reception and not like normal weary employee looks.
The food might be a let down as the hotel gives a voucher redeamable at resturants nearby. However, food itself is cheap in Malaysia and therefore not a big issue.

Overall enjoyed

Room Tip: none..though higher floors at better

The Lotus hotel is really well located in Little India, right opposite Masjid Jamek station and within walking distance of Chinatown and the famous night markets.

I found the room very comfortable and good value. The reception staff were friendly, and the nightstaff in particular were very helpful with recommendations for Indian restaurants nearby.

I really enjoyed staying at the lotus, and particularly valued the fact that I felt very safe and non-hassled, as a solo female traveller.

I would definitely go back. Its a safe bet, very good location and good value.

Room Tip: I particularly liked having a room overlooking the street so I could glimpse the bustle of the stree...

This hotel is well appointed in the 'golden triangle' and adjacent to the Masjid Jamek rail. The reception staff were very ploite but not everly helpful?
The rooms were neat and tidy and kept very clean except a dirty cloth to clean the room was left on the floor. The room was rather on the small side and a lot of noise was heard from adjacent rooms.
The so called 'breakfast' was a disaster. We were given a voucher and had a choice of the nearby Jaihind or President Restraunt. We first went to the Jaihind, sat down and was then ignored whilst the person in charge served those who came in after us, After 20 minutes of being ignored, I informed the staff member that he was rude and ignorant and left. We went to the President where service was a little better but the food was of a poor standard and served cold.
Informing the head receptionist of the hotel about our experience, I may as well as saved my breath as he was not interested in what I had to say.
Sorry but would not return again

staying at the hotel currently,looked for many hotels on trip advisor as it was our first time in kl....booked for a superior room thinking it would be spacious, got a shock when we saw the room it was triangular room...with some dirty piplines seen through the window which was closed....approached the manager of the hotel...asking him to shift, he gave us a standard room very tiny and small on the 8th floor for which we had to carry our luggage from 7 th to 8th floor as there is no lift after 7th floor....other wise the hotel is ok for bufget travellers....in the midst of market places .....but would strongly recommend staying close to bukit bintang even if the rooms are a little more expensive its worth it...

Room Tip: go for a standard room it at all ....the superior are all triangular

Close to the train and markets and cheap local food. Daily room cleaning and complementary snacks. The room was quite small, and the sound from the mosque at prayer times can be quite loud. It woke us up the first morning, but not after that.

We often visit KL on a short term basis, so good and clean amenities, easy access to public transportation is a must. You will find it in Lotus.
Hotel is situated in 30 sec walk from LRT/MRT station Masjid Jamek. Very clean and modern rooms (not spacious, but enough to stay to overnight), free WiFi, breakfast in the neighboring canteens in the Little India district, friendly and helpful staff.
Definitely will stay their many more times.

Room Tip: some rooms are facing another building and they are dark, higher floors have a good view
