3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed one night with my friends.
Room was ok. Bathroom was run down and show head not working well. The worst part is the drainage system was bad. Got to stop showering to allow water to drain off.

The bed sheets were not clean and the Towels were dirty. While the price is good, don't think I will come back again. There are better options around.
The staff was quite friendly though.

This is my second stay at Sunbow & it is excellent value. The rooms are reasonably sized, the bed is comfortable & the bathroom is a good size & pretty new. The service is good & the place is very clean. Great location - I could not fault this place.

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.
