Stay here for 5 days 4 nites. With my families.. book two queen bed room. The prize is very reasonable..rm90 pernite. altough the rooms kinda small but i dont mind as long as the room bed n the bathroom is clean. Aircond works very well. U can hear ppls voice passby the hallway but thats just for awhile. Its near to kopitiam that sales curry mee n fish head soup in the morning while porridge at night. Very near to Berjaya time square, Bukit bintang etc.. I like this hotel, will surely be back again nextime. :)

We got shown all the rooms before we decided what we wanted so we knew we would be in a small room but we're backpacking so were happy to pay as they were small but very well kept, clean and comfy, makes a big difference for a budget hotel! There are some bigger rooms which are quite expensive and as the place does have a budget feel we wouldn't have paid for them even if we were on just a weeks holiday. For the same price as the best room you'll get a nice hotel with a pool and breakfast in the same area.
Apart from the first guy who showed us all the rooms the other staff were quite poor we thought, we stayed 6 nights and simple things like them not saying hello or how are you without us almost forcing it on them is bad. We asked for help once about how to get to the Sunway Lagoon and the girl on reception didn't even know roughly where it was. After 6 days walking to reception for hot water every morning the last day we were told we could have a kettle in the room.
It's a good budget option. A short and easy 2-5 min walk to plenty of shopping, food, entertainment and monorail station which provides easy and cheap access to everywhere in the city.
We'd stay again for sure but budget or not staff can be more friendly.

Surprisingly good for the price. We stayed 4 nights in one of the larger family rooms which was cosy but enough room for two adults and 2 kids to move around. The boys loved the bunk beds!!
Room was well lit and ventilated with 2 large windows. Space utilised well, so no problem storing suit cases and clothes. The room, bedding and bathroom were all very clean. Beds and pillows were comfortable and not too much traffic noise so sleep was good. Free Wi-Fi was good and fast. Air con quiet and cool, free bottled water each day, and TV, not bad for a budget hotel!
The service was excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Kevin, who went out of his way to help us find roof racks for our 4WD while we were in KL.

Dear yws921,

First of all, we would like to thank you for your feedback. While we do acknowledge that most of our rooms are not as spacious as we would like it to be, we do have bigger rooms that caters for families and guests that have a little more budget.

What we try to provide is value for money to all our guests. For a low room rate, we strive to provide complimentary hi-speed wi-fi for all and a comfortable sleeping environment and great location to all our valued guests.

We do hope that you will stay with us again during your next trip to Kuala Lumpur. We do have bigger rooms that cost slightly more than a Standard Twin. Currently our biggest room is our Penthouse unit; located on the 8th floor which is a duplex unit that has a very spacious bedroom, living room and bathrooms equipped with jacuzzi.

Once again, thank you for your feedback and we hope you had a great time in Kuala Lumpur.

I was staying 10 days in this hotel, staff was nice. Single room is small but not too small. Wifi works, water heater works, everything works ok. Building-site near hotel is only the problem, big problem from early morning everyday (incl weekend)

It's just an ordinary budget hotel. The room was very small, so was the bathroom (+/- about 2 sqm maybe). Cleanliness was rather poor (i mean it, don't trust if any hotel's staff says the opposite that i'm the one who dirty, like they did to other reviewer), there was cobwebs beside my bed!. My room was at 7th floor which lack of lighting in corridor and they putted cleaning tools on this corridor instead of keep it in the cupboard. The staffs was minus of smiles and not too friendly.

I stayed for 2 nights and they didn't tidy my room. Maybe it was because i didn't put "please make up room" sign on the door handle. But in other hotels, even i didn't put the sign, my room will be cleaned.

What great ware the bed very comfortable, fast WiFi connection, nice hot water for shower and location near Imbi monorail station. That's all.
