Property is fine - nothing special. Staff not very willing to help and hotel pool was shut without any warning to us.

Great hotel, great location

Really great hotel. The room was a good size, with a nice bathroom and hot shower. It had tea, coffee and mini bar. The staff are lovely, very friendly and helpful. There’s plenty of choice for breakfast and there’s a nice pool and pool bar. The location is fantastic, in Bukit Bintang only a few mins walk from the train station and the bus stops, including the free ‘Go KL' bus. It’s just off a main road which is ideal for a solo female traveller like me. I’d definitely stay again!
