We liked the hotel and the staff was helpful and friendly. it is conveniently located in China town. Be careful fi you opt for a prepaid cab from the airport as the cab driver left us on the road saying the hotel was inside chinatown and the cab could not go there.

The location is in the middle of chinatown.Very crowded and noisy. Didnt like the service and rooms.But if you are under low budget and want to spend more time in sight-seeing and shopping then definitely recommended.

Poor and unfriendly reception, i was an assistant front office manager and trust me, the hotel receptionist would be fired if he was working with me! Can't walk out cause the room was prebooked and we have eave as soon as we can!
Bathroom wasn't dirty but look cleaned like with backpacker style! Linen was awful and DON'T prebook the breakfast: the fiood in the street was cheapest and much better!

Do not stay here.We spent 3 nights at this hotel,3nights to long.For location to China Town it is very good but that is all that can be said in its favour. The first room that we got we were unable to flush the toilet & only one light worked in the room so moved to another.The hotel is very old & negelected so mutch that the second room we were
moved to, the toilet blocked up in this room as well, a very limited menu for breakfast
did not help.My wife & I travel overseas every year,have stayed in hotels all over Asia
but never any as run down & neglected as this

I booked a deluxe room and the lady middle-aged in short hair actually lied to me and told me that it was a deluxe room, when i knew that it was a standard room. It is because I have stayed in that hotel a week ago in a standard room, My deluxe room was exactly the same as the size of the standard room i have stayed before. I heard that lady (supervisor) speaking to another junior staff that there was no more deluxe room anymore in a whispering tone. Obviously it was for her to do that. The previous time i went to check0in was around 10pm. The malay lady in white is far more polite and friendly than the middlye-aged lady supervisor. Breakfast choice was very limited. The buildings look old and it definitely requires renovations. Holes are being see here and there. In conclusion, i would advise people to check-in after 6pm, to avoid the middle age short hair malay lady supervisor.

The room was absolutely disgusting. It looked like there was dried vomit on the carpet, (see uploaded photo) the sink,bath and shower were that filthy we didn't dare to use them and the naff wallpaper was covered with nicotine stains. Not only did it look like the room design hadn't been updated in a very long time, it was as if it hadn't been cleaned for ages too.

The hotel is right in the heart of Chinatown, but right opposite some noisy bars. Because there is no air con you have to have an open window, and don't expect to get any sleep until at least 3.30am because of all the noise. Also when you see a sign on the door which warns you about leaving things in your own room you begin to worry about the safety of your own personal belongings here. First thing in the morning we checked out early and to their credit, without us even asking, the woman at reception refunded us the night we paid for but were not going to stay.

This hotel is really poor value for money in a city full of good value hotels. We stayed at a budget hotel in KL less half the price of this one (£15 instead of £45) and it was 100 times cleaner, quieter and comfier - with more facilities too.
