This is a budget hotel that strategically located with easy access for public transport i.e KL Sentral & Monorail and it has mini market downstairs .Just be prepared with the small room,no escalator and curtain as door for the toilet.

And great if you want to see prostitution in the city.

We chose to stay one night as it's about 5 minutes walk to KL sentral where we had to take a bus to the airport early in the morning. The room is tiny and without windows (standard for budget hotels in KL).

The street in front is lined with brothels. You can see girls and guys streaming in and out non stop from the evening all the way till the morning.

The owner was so helpful, located in crowd "Little India" so you'll find many India people, quite close to KL Sentral (5 minute walk), the first floor of the hotel is a minimarket so it's easy to buy stuffs. The room was so small and fit for backpackers, the bathroom was so tiny yet quite clean...but when I stayed there, I found a fly inside the room (T_T)...Anyway, it's recommended for backpackers with the short stay...

Good location, close to KL Sentral, a main transportation junction in KL, but the street itself is said to be a red light area, and every night, some men were wandering in the street or eating in the street hooker by randomly looking at bypassers...Were they eargered to talk with us then?

Helpful staff, the inn seemed to be managed by a Malaysian Chinese family and they were helpful, their Filipino & Indonesian employees were also in service attitude.

Average amenities, almost every daily-use amenity inside except for hairdryer...

Wifi available inside the room and at least it was stable in my room on 3rd floor...

Room Tip: Acceptable or okay for a casual or home stay by the inn itself...

I was not very impressed by this hotel. The pictures that were online did not match the reality of the hotel. The "hotel" is located above a grocery store, which allows the noise to continue through out the night. The walls are very thin, and there for you to hear everything! They said that a complementary breakfast would be available. This consisted of a few pieces of toast, jam, and peanut butter with no drinks available. There is one computer, but it is old, gets stuck on web pages, and is usually being used by one of the family members.

The bed sheets had stains on them, and you were only given one small blanket for the bed. My husband is 6 foot 2 in and the blanket did not cover him, so when I asked for another blanket and towel, I was informed that I would be charged. Given the charge is not very much, but considering the very small necessities they gave us, I would not have expected to be charged anything.

The shower is one of those beautiful things that you look forward to after a full day of walking around or going on a tour, and that is a luxury this hotel falls flat on. The shower was ICE cold!!! All in all...go some where else.

Room Tip: Go some where else.

Also, very close to monorail station. Easy to access major shopping aria.
Guy at front office was nice and well speak English.
Recommend for short stay.

Room Tip: There is not so many choices, room with window or no window
