Perfectly located in center KL (close to Lot10 and also to the Eco Forest Park), it is also a very clean hotel with spacious rooms. Breakfast was ok. Service was good too. Would definitely recommend for a few days trip in KL.

If you are visiting KL for the first time and donot have much time to get into the hasstle of traffic better to take a Taxi or Uber. Otherwise KLIA express train service should be grabed from KL sentral station direct to the airport at very cheap terrif

We just used Grab from and to the airport, both times at 80 MYR incl road toll. Arriving into KL still in rush hour. Train is fastest/cheapest but grab is easy. Book the car to door 2 or 3 at arrival. Regular taxi is about same price as grab but typical old cars and drivers often complaining about life.

Free parking is for hotel guests only. I would recommend taking a Grab over instead.

Hi, there is street car park enough in the front square. Yes, there is in-house parking too. No smoking room was available in my floor and no balcony to use so but I dont discard you could arrange somehing useful to enjoy your tobacco.

"I would ask for a room without a connecting door, if found I had a lot of noise from the family in the next room."
"All rooms are good."
"ask for a view of the city"
"Ask for the room that overlooks the twin towers."
"Don't rely on the staff to give you the rooms with any view as you might be sad..."
