We stayed here for 4 days in December 2013. The location is superb, just a walk away from Little India and China Town. The Purple Liner bus stop just around the corner from the hotel can take you to the Twin Towers, Bukit Bintang and other key areas of the city.
The rooms are a bit small, but conveniently laid out. DO NOT get the window-less rooms! We got one of them through Agoda since it was going quite cheap, and boy it's like being in prison! Well not so bad, but you don't know what time of day it is, what the weather is like outside, and there's no fresh light or air or anything! My husband and I realised we were constantly sleepy and lethargic while in the room, but when we came out we were quite ok! Maybe it's an effect of the cloistered environment.
The breakfast buffet was great, but the restaurant was so crowded, the staff was having a hard time clearing tables in time for other guests to sit down, but this may have been because December is peak season. We didn't get any other food from the hotel so no idea about other meals. The staff all don't speak great English, but they are friendly and go out of the way to help. Would definitely stay again (in a better room!).
