“Tiny room in Little India”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

When we visited (Dec 2012), there was construction on the street in front of the hotel so it was a bit hard to locate the hotel. Staff is nice. But the room is tiny, and no window makes us feel even more claustrophobic. (We later found out that this size is standard at budget hotels in KL).

The little India neighborhood outside is dirty, and not as exciting as we'd expected.

We wished we had splurged a little in KL. 1* and 2* hotels like this hotel isn't a bargain at all. It's actually quite pricey for what's offered, especially considering that the city has the cheapest 4* and 5* in the world.

This hotel is well situated, clean, has generally very helpful staff, and fast, stable WiFi internet connection. The room is very small, but certainly ok for 1 person. No windows, but this also means that it is quiet, great for sleeping with cold A/C (adjustable). In the afternoon and evening the staff was quite helpful, but the early morning attendant seemed to be a bit sleepy, which delayed my check out a few minutes, since I had previously requested a print out of an important email. Unfortunately, upon checking out, I found that, not only had they not printed out the email, but they didn't even know how to access the email. To learn how to print the email took 10 minutes. No big deal, but would have been nice to see some more responsiveness and training.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

Kuala Lumpur is rather expensive when it comes to quality accommodations, especially if you want a good location. I was kind of shocked by the prices since I was coming from Cambodia where I paid half as much for twice the quality. With that said, this hotel worked out just fine.

I booked the single room with private bathroom. I had read other reviews about the rooms being small, but I didn't realize how small it would actually be. My room was a tiny little box with no window and just barely enough room for the small bed. However, I don't need a big room and the A/C worked that much better with such a small space to cool! The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and everything worked great. It was also very quiet and dark, so I slept well. My only complaint is that 75 RM seemed a bit too much for my tiny white cubicle of a room.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had nothing but positive experiences when interacting with them.

The location was perfect. It was 2 blocks from the Masjid Jamek LRT station and within walking distance of the Puduraya bus station. It was also right between Chinatown and Little India and within walking distance of many good restaurants.

I stayed in this hotel 9 nights during march 2012. Its not far from the Masjid Jamek MRT
(Mass Rapid Transit) station. My room was small with air conditioning and without a
window - this is the only bad thing in this hotel - bathroom also small however clean.
Wifi connection worked without problems. Price for the single room was favorable.

Would love to stay here again, certainly in a room with window:)

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Fantastic location. It's a 2 minute walk to the central market which is brilliant, some great craft shops along with a nice selection of drinks and snack vendors outside. There are also several excellent budget restaurants nearby.
Friendly and welcoming staff who gave me a map, advised me on the local area, booked taxis etc.
Room was spotless. I booked a deluxe room for a few extra pounds, which got me a larger room with a window, which I would advise doing, it's still great value. Clean ensuite bathroom with hot water shower unit and plenty of towels. Flat screen TV in bedroom with HBO Asia available. Room was serviced daily and to a high standard, All in all, a great value hotel, I would definitely recommend it and would stay here again.

Room Tip: It's worth paying extra to book a deluxe room, for the extra space and window.

We stayed there for 3 nights. Great location! Next to central Mall and China Town. Very close to MRT station and ATM and banks. Room was quite small, but clean and cozy. Free wifi was working slowly at times. Roof top cafe was closed :( (15-18. Feb)

Hotel was very reasonably priced, ok sized room.

Felt safe and was clean.

Good location for chinatown and to get to the Petronas Tower on rail.

Good value for money - don't why the other reviewer said could not find this? The budget taxi from KL Express station took us straight there.

Did not get to see the roof terrace.

Don't expect luxury - fine for 1 night stop over between flights. No complaints and good value for money

Room Tip: We had room without window which was fine.
