Positive Reviews

In the heart of Chinatown

This was by far what guests most appreciated about the hotel. It was described as being right smack bang in the middle of Chinatown, with all of its many amenities and attractions nearby. Guests liked the location for many reasons, with the easy availability of great dining and the proximity of the station to the popular Batu Caves two that were often mentioned.

Very stylish design

Many guests commented that the style of the hotel, both the facade and the interior, was nothing if not unique. It seemed to make them look up and take notice, and although not all liked what they saw, they agreed that they were definitely not staying somewhere that was bland.

Excellent value for money

Pretty much all guests who brought up the question of value for money felt that they had received excellent value. Low room rates and the great central location where the most commonly cited reasons.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are small and basic

Many guests felt that the rooms themselves seemed to let the hotel down a little. While some complained that they were simply too small, others didn't really care for the décor, which was said to be extremely basic and not to everyone's taste.

Very simple breakfast

It was hard to find any guests who expressed much enthusiasm for the breakfast available at the hotel. Most said that it was too basic for their tastes, consisting of little more than some pastries and a hot drink.

Some rooms without TV

Some guests were disappointed, and surprised, to find that their room did not have a TV in it. Indeed, some rooms have no TV, which many guests clearly did not know beforehand.
