        Strategic location located 200m away from Pasar Seni Train Station. Unbelievably clean,especially for one that located in the middle of China town. Despite being in the middle of busy street,you couldn’t hear anything once you enter the hotel. The breakfast is more than what I expected with the price paid. The bad review probably unlucky because I felt very lucky and happy with the room and service that I got from this hotel. We will come back if the hotel maintain the excellence cleanliness.

        A strategic place!”

        The hotel is located in petaling street night market. I love the environment, nice staff and free breakfast. The place is so strategic because it near to lrt station, mall, and easy to get halal food (but more to fastfood). If you guys want some privacy, then don't choose this hotel since its just a budget hotel. Its just nice to sleep and get rest. Don't expect 3 star hotel=5 star hotel. But, i will rate this hotel with 5 star. Everything about this hotel is damn great. I will come again! No regret at all! Very recommended ;)

        Lovely and accommodating staff, clean sheets and towels, but it would be nice if they will have different menus for their breakfast daily. But over all it was such a nice experience the room we stayed at was cozy. Will definitely book again, highly recommended!

        Location was great, breakfast spread was amazing!”

        This hotel is located in Chinatown and very much near Central Market, Merdeka Square and MRT Station. I didn’t have a hassle experience with navigating around the area since most places I wanna visit is walking distance. It’s not hard to book a Grab in that location as well. I just find the towels not clean enough since I can still see dirt on the edges and sides of the towel. The bed is clean and spacious and the breakfast spread is great. The staff was kind enough to make me coffee and the receptionist was kind enough to let us leave our things after check out just so we can roam around a bit more. Overall, our stay was great. It’s just the towel that I find a bit off.

        Good experience overall but..”

        Location: superb. it's located right in the middle of petaling street, where you can try some authentic malaysian food. it's also 5 mins way from the train station by walking. Cleanliness: the hotel is pretty clean, it's just that the bathroom smells weird sometimes. Staff: always offer to help. i also like how they have a drinking water station so i didn't have to spend money getting water. Breakfast is good too. I was amazed by the hotel interior when I first stepped in. Everything was good until I got bed bug bites....

        We booked for a simple stay for KL marathon and it was beyond expectation! They extended the breakfast time and check out time for the guests due to the marathon so we had enough time to eat and rest after the run. Breakfast is complimentary! Generous selection available. The room is not big but it's enough for light travellers. Has some essentials available like toothbrush, head cap etc available when checking in. Front desk is helpful. Nothing more to ask for considering the price we paid. Worth it.

        Beautiful and nice hotel to stay”

        The room is quite small but so clean and nice. But there is no tv and hairdyer or even a table. Most of all the hotel is so nice with a light breakfast. I am consider to stay here again when i'm come back to chinatown.
