OYO 161 Paradize Hotel

Reviewed 20 July 2013

No Complaints at the price paid. Worth every MYR. Cant get a better location. Monorail is like 200 Ft away. Rooms are not great but then again for the price dont expect too much. Meets basic standards of a frequent economy stay looking businessman.

We stayed here for one night on a quick stopover in KL. We've stayed in KL many times and have always had trouble finding any decent budget accommodation. Lodge Paradize was only a few dollars more than the crappy budget hostel we stayed in last time, so we decided to give it a go. Whilst the hotel is clearly still needing a little bit of TLC, it does have quite an old school charm. If you are in to old buildings then you will likely enjoy this place. If you are looking for a swish modern hotel then maybe try somewhere else. Everything from the retro lift to the stair bannisters are pretty funky and old and our 'standard' room was really good, with nice parquetry floors, solid brick walls, a nice big window and a decent sized bathroom. The standard room doesn't have a fridge or TV, but we didn't really need that anyway. The reception staff could be a little bit more welcoming and friendly, although they were helpful in getting a taxi etc. The included breakfast is better than most budget hotels but don't expect a fancy buffet! The old swimming pool is still not functioning and is currently just a water feature next to the restaurant.
The wifi didn't work at all on the 4th floor.
Bathroom was nice and clean with good hot shower and towels provided.
Hotel is located in a nice, quiet area but still only a 5 min walk (or 1 monorail stop) from all the big shopping centres etc. The monorail escalator is literally right out the main entrance of the hotel.

It looks like there is till some work to be done here. eg, The garden could do with a bit of work..
I just hope that in fixing up this hotel they don't destroy the old-school charm!
Definitely recommended as a good budget option in a good location and with a bit of character!

This hotel has the worst possible service. The manager and staff from the reception right to the restaurant that served breakfast were rude and ruined the mood for us. Don't bother with a smile, they won't even look at you or answer you properly. Room is clean and breakfast is poor, but the bad service was too hard to swallow.

Stayed here with a few of my friends and found the hotel very clean which was the most important for me. Equipped with all the necessities-TV/Airconditioning/Hairdryer/MiniFridge. At the doorstep of the hotel is the Monorial easily accessing to KL Sentral (where you can get the train to KLIA Airport). Minutes walk from Pavillion, Sungei Wang, and of course the Petronas Twin Towers.

Breakfast was delicious serving both western and local delights. Within the hotel premise is a local/thai restaurant which was also very tasty.

I woud definitely recommend this place to my friends again as it is value for money!

I stayed here for 3 nights on a backpacking trip. Finding solid yet affordable accomodation wasn't exactly easy during our trip in the high season. If you don't need the comfort of a highrise-hotel and don't like guesthouses and hostels, this is a decent choice. Rooms and beds are clean and spacious, staff even put my shoes inside when the afternoon rain started and the malay-style breakfast is tasty. Though the lack of real windows (asian glass shutters) and the bleak furnishing makes it a place you wanna sleep but not hang out too long.

Myself and three friends stayed in the budget rooms and had a pretty rough time sleeping as there was a beeping noise coming from the building behind us, through the bathroom windows that would not shut, with a bathroom door that didn't seem to latch properly. This hotel has a ton of potential as it's in a great location, could be very stylish, but seems to have run out of money as the large fountain (not pool) was a little dirty and parts of the building were still under construction. I did get a chance to eat at the restaurant which served delicious Thai food, and our rooms were pretty clean- but in the end, we had to change our reservation and did not receive any kind of refund. Despite the receptionist knowing about the noise problem, no attempt was made to change our rooms for another at the same rate, without the noise. It's too bad, really. This could be a four star hotel with a few smart changes!

Room Tip: Don't stay in the budget rooms.

This place is small but on a great location - next to the monorail station, close to all main attractions. Rooms are clean and big enough with AC and most important clean bathroom. Breakfast is great - buffet style.
Staff was friendly and professional.

I would recommend this hotel, it has best value for money.
