They tried, but the facility is AWFUL. DONT DO IT.
I am so sorry to do this because the two gentlemen that run the place did try to appease me and I DID stay four nights (too lazy to trek over somewhere else and the other hotels in area for some price seem, keyword is seem, comparable.)
Let me break it down. The first night I had laundry done, which is a nice feature. They lost my laundry (gave it to someone who had laundry done but not even staying at the place). I flipped and went out to cool off for a while,came back planning on apologizing, and that we'll sort things out, but luckily they got it back for me, so okay, fine.
Had room 201 2 nights. Bed will creak if you even think of breathing deeply let alone moving or shifting. Has two windows, can see completely through into room at night so you're pretty much exposed all night. People talking outside on balcony, zero sound barrier, and while its cute and I love animals, there is a DEMON CAT that starts moaning around 10 pm and will continue to yowl and fight on the floor or above the room all night. Incidentally I bought cat food for it my last night cause poor thing is probably hungry and would stop crying if it had nothing to cry about.
The SMOKING. You can probably guess by my review that I am American, I hate smoking. People smoke everywhere and all day long, lobby AND balcony, and was frustrating to not have a place for fresh air. Smoke seeps thru windows and under doors.
Bathrooms pretty gross--but manageable, I was glad for western toilets. Water pressure and heat is decent.
Didn't love people stomping above me (walls and floors are less than paper thin) when trying to sleep at 1:30 am. But that didn't matter because firecrackers went off like bombs oveKL at 4 to 4:45 am.
In second room (202), a/c splutters water at night over your head, eg like you're being exorcised by the room... First room the outlet covers were comig out of wall... Second room bedding filthy with lots of hair on it...
I will say, very good location. Very cheap price. And the two guys were patient with me and I appreciate that they personally are trying their best and are not totally responsible for physical conditions especially as it pertains to noise HVAC etc. But it's not a comfortable stay and if I didn't have a great time seeing the city of KL I would've been really posses at myself.
