- Backpacking
All things good, but toilet in my room is stumped...
- Backpacking
Not too bad to stay in this hotel
- Family vacation
The AC in our first room wasn't working well. It was hot, making a noisy voice. Then we asked to change the room, and being kind of shocked because the room that they gave us was not clean. The bed was not tidied up. The towel is not clean. So we asked to change the room again. My friend called the receptionists but they answered not properly. It was a not good experienced.

Very strategic location. But the service is a bit lack, I have to find my room by myself. But overall, everything is good..
- the room given wasn't even cleaned up - the reception staff was unfriendly, didn't greet and gave a stank face - when asked for another room she refused, so I demanded to talk to the manager - she called the manager and the manager agreed to give me another room - the other room: the AC was hot, no remote control, so I opened the AC and saw that it was so dirty/ full of dust so it meant the AC was never cleaned - the hot water in the shower didn't work, only cold water - the TV remote didn't work, so the TV couldn't be adjusted so couldn't watch the TV - the next morning I saw a rat in kitchen area where the breakfast was served - so I only stayed one night from three nights booked

Kecawa little because my booking rooms (single room) was not available and transferred to the dormitory, but in my opinion it does not matter
- Backpacking
The bed linen and bed cover scars previous guests and not cleaned
- Romantic Vacation
Unable to breakfast at all during the stay 3 nights there.
- Backpacking
The walls are damp, dirty toilet, although near everywhere, one guard very unfriendly

Avoid this run down dump
First off, let me start by pointing out that the SOHO City Hotel is sometimes listed on booking sites as OYO Rooms Jalan Petaling or Le Hotel Chinatown. It is located right in the middle of the busy Petaling St markets. I don’t know where the pictures of the rooms come from, but they are certainly not from this place. The reality, is the rooms are run down, dirty, and falling apart. My room had an old single bed (not the double I booked) just propped up against the wall. A shared bathroom with a broken door lock that was in very shabby condition. On my arrival the previous occupant had left a lovely surprise in the toilet. It certainly added to the already overpowering odor of stale cigarettes in the cramped, windowless room. Staff were a mixed bag. The male staff seemed friendly and helpful enough, but one of the female staff I dealt with was pretty rude when I asked to amend my booking. Overall, they are not very welcoming. On the plus side, the Wi-Fi is fairly fast and reliable. There is a common room area on the first floor which is not a bad place to chill out, but I chose not to eat the breakfast there. There are many equally priced cheap hostels in Chinatown, so do yourself a favor and book elsewhere. This place is one to avoid.

My first room, it was noisy because of the AC. The AC make a loud voice and it couldn't be fixed. So i asked new room, they offered us to other room but it was horrible. This room is messy, the bed isn't clean with a messy cover, full of trashes, and dirty towel. I guess the guests just checked out from there and they didn't clean it again. Then for second time i asked to change my room again. The third room is ok, but toilet is dirty. We decided to stopped complaining because in the end we just use it for sleep.

Cheap and cheerfulish
Good location, literally on petaling market street, and really cheap at £9 with breakfast included, although we didn't hear anything about breakfast? Room was average, clean enough, bathroom wasn't the nicest and the water stopped working one evening. Small TV with limited channels. Not many restaurants around. Really close to bus and train stations so made exploring the city convenient and easy.

Love this place
Kl is full of overpriced accommodation. This place is priced just right. Don't expect 5 star. The rooms are clean but a bit tatty. Beds are all sprung and super comfortable. No noise at night despite the central location. All rooms have wifi but it's a bit unreliable. Breakfast is just toast but there a few tables and some kitchen bits so you can make cereal or coffee. The staff here are amazing. So polite and helpful. Compared to so many low end places in KL, Soho City just feels friendly and welcoming. Special thank you to Max and the front desk staff. They are all incredible. See you all soon.
