Reviewed 20 March 2014

Booked the family room. Was surprised to find that its spacious. Connecting rooms with 1 Double bed and 3 single beds. Clean and Comfortable.
Good location - about 10 minutes to Berjaya Times Square.
Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Family room is spacious.

So far so good. Clean hotel, nice, friendly staff. But problem with the heater in the bathroom. Watch out while u open the water if u don't check 1st they will burn your skin cos its too hot. Near to go bukit bintang, pavillion mall, low yat plaza, sungai wang even the place in 10th floor but recommend to stay there

i do recommend to choose this hotel if you decide to stay around Bukit Bintang. The location is easy to find, just from IMBI monorail station, follow the path and walk around 5 - minutes!
Once i reached the lobby, receptionist was welcoming, friendly and professional. And the room was nice, spacious, neat and clean!
I dont know if they serve breakfast, but no one told me, and i look again the web and my voucher, it's not mentioned the breakfast. :(
Anyway, not a big problem, i still plan to come back again!

The main purpose of going to KL this time is to visit the 100 Doraemon Exhibitions at Viva Home. Since it was just a night stay, we were looking at a very simple stay. Going to KL in a group of 4, my friend found this hotel on Agoda and I double check the reviews on tripadviser. Sunbow Hotel seem to be a good choice with a reasonable price and location.

The Hotel is located at Level 10 inside a very old residency building. Before the hotel lift, there is flight of stairs to be climbed. It don’t see to be a bother unless you are travelling with elderly.

The Check In was fast with a deposit of RM50 each room, which would be returned upon check out. This was the first time I was asked to pay deposit upon check in to a hotel. It did not sound logical but we still abided by the rule set.

Room was cozy with basic amenities, except to remember to bring your own shaver, toothbrush/toothpaste and no room shoes with cold floor. There was a safe and a mini fridge plus an extra pillow. The queen size bed was a bit small for my husband and I but it was comfortable and clean. The heater shower was not as heated as it seen to be. There was a water dispenser just beside the Check in Counter. The walls were solid except the door. You can hear people walking and talking when they were walking past. I was quite disturbed by this as it woke me up from my sleep 2-3 times in the night. Quite a strange encounter for door not being solid enough.

The toilet impressed me a lot. It was very spacious with each individual service area. Location wise, it was super. Plenty of shopping malls and food stalls.

For 1night short stay, it was memorable and recommendable.

Room is big, clean and good decoration. Big bathroom. Great location. LRT is just behind the hotel building. Easy to walk around for shopping and good food and within walking distance to Chinatown and Central market. Value for money compared to what we get. WIFI is fast. Will stay here again.

Room Tip: Use left hand lift to 9th floor and walk one floor up to hotel lobby.

Our big family stayed here for 2 nights while in KL. The building is old but the rooms are kept spick and span. Excellent service from hotel staff and rooms are provided with WIFI. Location is good with walking distance to Jalan Alor (food!!) and shopping places like BB Plaza, Sungei Wang, Fahrenheit and The Pavillion. The only letdown is the lift, which gets very crowded at certain hours. But we were not tpp fussy about it. The price is reasonable for a budget hotel and for the price we've paid, I've got no complaints. It was a good stay and we've had adjoining rooms for our family which many other hotels couldn't cater during this period. The Indian rice stall nearby the front of the hotel building serves excellent aromatic curry!

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night in Oct 2013 in a connecting room.

This hotel is a perfect example of 'Dont judge a book by its cover'. The outlook of the building (I think it is like an old shopping mall) is old but inside the hotel it is amazingly well-designed and furnished.

The location/price ratio is perfect. The hotel is 5 minutes walk away from Berjaya Times Square which has an LRT to bring you around KL.

Wifi access per room is only. Limited to 2 devices via sign in method. However, wifi is fast.

The only problem for some people is there is no breakfast. You can walk to Berjaya Times Square or the abundant food stalls along the street to have your breakfast.

I will definitely stay here again for its affordability and comfort!
