Good value for money
Nothing special on this hotel but otherwise good value for money. Some guests are noisy talking on the phone, chatting loud even in the middle of tje night.

Clean and conveniently located!
The location is perfect with many local restaurants and 24 hour laundromat nearby. NU sentral shopping mall is 2 blocks away and you can get to all sorts of public transportation from there. The staff are always happy to answer any questions you may have. Free breakfast is just bread and jam but hey they always set up 1 type of local fruit with them so how sweet is that! Try their reasonably priced coffee as well( I tried Iced Americano for 5 MYR and it was great.) You'll find a lovely group of people sitting around to have a chat with if you want. Nothing to complain that I can think of this place. Will visit again if I have another visit to Kuala Lumpur in the future,
