    Pleasant Stay

    The Petronas Towers is a 10-minute walk away through the Skybridge, whereas the KL International Airport is an hour drive absent. It is near to all the sights within the city centre and has simple get to from all dbars and popular Alor food road is 5 minutes walk. Rooms clean with extraordinary walk in showers. From the room, we have a great looking view of KL Tower especially within the night. There's an train station before the hotel moreover a Kl bus terminal. The location is really great, there are many great places near the hotel. Very easy to tour around and go to places.

    Comfortable Hotel

    The monorail station (Raja · Turan station) is in front of the road and access from the airport using public transportation (KLIA express limited to KL central station + monorail) is very good. As for the surrounding tourism, walking around KL Tower, Twin Towers, KLL Park, Bukit Bintang Station (including street arrow street) etc. Also, in the central market near Chinatown and the nearby Central Market there is a free KLGO Monorail Station (Raja Turan Station) in front of the road, access from the airport using public transportation (KLIA Express Limited Express KL Central rail to central station + monorail) is good. As a surrounding tourism, KL Tower, Twin Towers, KLCC Park, Bukit Bintang Station Station (Street Arrow Street as well) etc can walk around. Also, if you take a free GOKL bus (purple line, pink color bus) from the bus stop 30 meters away from the hotel front, you can get to the Bazaar Suni station at the end in about 10 minutes (when there is no traffic) Walk and enjoy Central Town and Chinatown nearby. Also walk through this Kuala Lumpur station from Bazaar Sini station, and cross the Merdeka Square and Lake Gardens. Near Merdeka Square there are places of interest such as various parks and museums. The hotel is clean and the pool is comfortable. However, the air conditioning was too effective, and in my case I always stayed off and spent. If you think the restaurant in the hotel is expensive, there are places to dine cheaply in the surroundings, and there are convenience stores as well.

    Worth The Price

    I was surprised at this hotel. Because of the low price I think it will be just an average hotel. But to my surprise it isn’t. The quality is far greater than the high price hotels I have been. Even it is old you can see that the facilities, furniture, and all around the hotel are well maintained. Room have a good ambiance in it, bed is so comfortable to sleep with. Bathroom has the basic needs and well cleaned. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was amazing, so many food to choose from and almost all of the food were very delicious. And there is a shopping mall nearby, so there is no problem if you forgot something or need something. I highly recommend this place. It’s worth the price.
