“Comfortable in a city way”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

We had a standard room...small but not a problem as the en suite and window view made it feel bigger. Carpets could do with replacing and the bed had an old biscuit and some (unused) condoms under it, so cleaning standards were not high. The bed was comfortable nevertheless. The location was good for Little India but a longish walk (in the heat) to Masjid Jamek or Bank Negara railway stations, to the Hop-on-hop-off bus stop and to the Puduraya long distance bus terminal. Service was good though not particularly personal...it is a big city hotel after all. The big plus was the great pool....cool, large, refreshing and with interesting views of the city. Felt a bit odd having to ask security staff for pool towels, though.

Room Tip: Ask for non-smoking with a view of the city.

I stayed here for 2 days last weekend, it is a great hotel in a serviced residence type setting.
Away from the traffic of Bukit Bintang and Chinatown area. you get a full view of the KL Tower from the lobby area.
Though the area nearby could be intimidating for tourist to venture into,with food stalls and roadside vendors lining the back street leading to the nearest LRT station, but there is a big Police Headquarter building right at the back of the hotel, overall I feel save walking around the hotel area while looking for bargain items on the way back.
Breakfast is good,special rate for in house guest.Hotel staff is friendly and service is prompt. Only thing they need to improve is the air-conditioning in the room. I hardly get any cool air as the outlet of air vent is directed to the hidden corner of the room...oh yes, one more thing, only if they can move the toilet paper holder away form the sink so that it will not scratch your leg in the middle of your shaving..:-)

Good service, attent to detail, good manners, clean room although small and no view. Easy 8 minutes walk to metro station which connect to Chinatown or KLCC (it's in middle)
I might go back if I don't catch a 5* offer in cheap KL.

I had a great time in Malaysia last December. Stayed @May Tower though my travel agent.
It is a good Hotel. The Hotel Staffs were nice. They were cordial, polite and helpful. The room was quite clean. But it was not specious enough to make movement freely. The worst thing was adjacent doors with the next room. It has no lock. So door adjacent to my next room is easily reachable. An Iranian family was there. They seem to forget to close the door in their part. So two door side by side without any lock..Open easily. I have never seen kind of system before. One night I have found the next door open. I have noticed the reception but nothing happened. We felt unsecured. Hotel management should review this system.
The nearest LRT metro station is quite a long distance from the Hotel. It was masjid jamek. We have to walk almost 15-20mins every time to reach there. After whole day walk here and there in the city it was quite boring and tiring.

Thank you for your comments. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. As for the adjacent room with no lock, the door knobs facing inwards are dead locks meaning the person in the next room will not have access to your door unless it is intentionally opened. The Masjid Jamek LRT station is actually just 5 minutes walk from the Hotel and hopefully if and when you do make a return visit to KL and stay with us, we can show you the shorter route.

Warm regards
