Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Got to this place very late in the evening, and they
said only one room left its 'family room' ok no choice Very tired but found the sheet lot of hairs and the pillow was disgusting. Anyway still need to rest.
But I think they could do
better with the cost that we paid.

I stayed here for three nights it's right in the middle of Chinatown quite easy to find, the rooms are not what you would call luxurious but they are very clean and modern, bathroom has a good shower and the flat screen tv has a couple of English channels but as most budget hotels in Kuala Lumpur no fridge also most of the rooms don't seem to have direct natural light but they do have a small window looking out onto the passageway, main thing is I had a good peaceful nights sleep that is until the maids started chatting rather loud in the early morning.
Staff are very nice and helped me out with a few things, lots of places for breakfast in the morning right outside the front door and the market is only a minutes walk away.
If your after somewhere to rest your head and not cost you a fortune I'd recommend you give Sohotown a try I'd certainly go back myself.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an outside window.

We came here to take a rest and wait for our bus ride home at Puduraya, which is just about 200m away from the hotel. Luckily they had day-use room available on the day we went - sometimes day-use room are fully booked and would not be available (we had been passing by and inquired a few times previously but no rooms were available back then).

We got ourselves a double room. It was not big, but it was clean and had no funny smell. Nonetheless, the hotel staffs at front desk were not very professional - they argued among themselves in front of the customers. No language problem with them as they spoke Cantonese and so did we. Fast food (KFC, Nando's) or local hawker fare (bak kut teh, chicken rice, wantan mee, etc...) is just <1 minute walk away. Watson and Guardian is close by as well.

For those who want a place to rest while waiting to board buses in Puduraya you can consider this little stopover - you get a decently clean place to shower and sleep, plus you get a place to put all your belongings while you explore Petaling Street.

Hotel is value for money. Rooms are very clean. Walking distance from Pudu Sentral. Nando's, KFC and McDonalds are very near, walking distance (2 minutes). The hotel is very near Pellating street. From the hotel you can go to little india by walk (10 minutes).

This hotel located just few steps from the famous Petaling Street. Transportation is not a problem at all with LRT station and Puduraya bus station just around the corner. Plenty of taxi passing by too. There are a lot of eateries to choose from around the area; from fastfood to local food. The room pricing is reasonable with all the amenities within reach. The room is well maintain and clean.
