Very central and convenient

Pros: Lots of great places to eat and bars within walking distance. Really good value for money too.
Cons: A little difficult for our taxi driver to find. Took us 1.5 hrs to get from airport because he got lost. take a map with location to show driver.
Location: Close to free purple bus so we could get to Chinatown and the towers easy. The train station was nearby too and made traveling around very convenient.
Great location and value for money. Easy to commute around by bus and train. Lovely staff and very helpful. Close to Alor st for awesome food. Room was lovely and breakfast, not included for us, was good value for money and very good quality. Highly recommend.

A well situated hotel.

Pros: No complaints
Cons: Can't think of a thing
Location: The Sahara Tent just around the corner from the hotel is well worth a visit.
A Monorail station at the end of the street and the bus stop for 4 seperate free circular buses making it very easy to get around. Friendly and knowledgable staff and a Happy Hour in the bar from 2pm to 8pm how good is that.

Satisfied.

Excellent location. Beautiful interior. It has all a young couple would want - in the heart of KL, free parking, free Wi-Fi, shopping malls. Downside is that the walk leading to hotel did not seem very safe at night.
