Went for a student conference in UTAR and this was one of the accommodation options mentioned on the conference website. We were on a tight budget and the hotel was within our affordability range. We chose the standard express room (the cheapest). Arriving at 2:30 in the morning check in was hassle free but no one to carry our luggage. Have seen other reviews complaining about the location but being close to the chow kit monorail meant getting around KL was hassle free once we figured out the transport system. Breakfast spread was good and even a veggie like me had enough options. The front desk helped us in the morning by giving us directions and a map of KL to get around. Room had a small TV with 10-12 channels and a good, clean bathroom. Water purifier was there just outside the room. Room did not have a window which was disappointing. Housekeeping was decent. Hotel also had a spa. The restaurant seemed to close early at night as we arrived late on all the days and never found it open.We left around 2am in the morning to catch a flight around 6 and hotel guys did not help us out with our luggage or by hiring a taxi. Overall, an average stay. If on a tight budget, go for it. Dont expect any good service. Expect a minimal room and facilities.
