I stayed in December 2012, just before Christmas. Apparently it was peak period and I was lucky enough to get the last available room.
D'Hotel was around 10 min walk to Jonker Street, and there is also an eatery that opens till late in case you are up for midnight snack. The room was reasonable for the price - sizable and was clean, with flat screen TV and air-con. Bed was confmy and basic amenities were included. There were only basic furnitures though (no fridge, no desk, no chairs) nor were there elevator though so do ask for rooms on ground level if you have big luggages. Our room had no window but we knew it when we made the reservation.
The best thing about the hotel was the staff. We arrived at midnight and the staffs were waiting for us and had everything ready when we checked in. They are always patient and friendly. We had difficulities booking coach ticket going to KL and they did their utmost to help - i am sure we wouldn't have been able to get the tickets if it wasn't them!
It is a good, well located, no frills hotel for budget travellers. I'd stay there again just because of the wonderful staffs.
