Property is okay, but quite shock to find the flushing system is rather weak (being a relatively new hotel). Although, it is branded as a boutique hotel, frankly, there nothing unique and room design seems rather plain. By the way, there is no room service and cleaning of rooms only start close to noon time (staff were still cleaning our room when we returned at 1 pm). Easy access to the surrounding malls is probably the only plus point. You can "upgrade" to better hotels in the Bukit Bintang area (with full hotel facilities/services) for $US20-30 more.

Great location, close to train stations and the major shopping district in Bukit Bintang. Lots of food and convenience shops nearby as well. The room is modern, spacious and clean. The shower was great, but the bathroom overall could do with more hangers/hooks. We couldnโ€™t access any channels on the TV, but thankfully there was still YouTube although it was quite laggy. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful, they loaned us an umbrella when it was pouring one evening. The hotel gym felt a little neglected, with only a couple of dumbbells and cardio machines. Overall, it was a wonderful stay and we are quite likely to stay here again the next time we are in KL :)

Newish property very close to Bukit Bintang stations (and shopping) but relatively quiet. Room was well-appointed,good bed and loads of hot water - bit weird only having Netflix or YouTube, but liveable. Breakfast was good value and not rushed - if you have an early day trip, tell the breakfast supervisor the day before and they'll arrange some sandwiches and fruit for you to take. Pool was super but wait until after 8.30am as the cleaner works on the pool at 8am๐Ÿ˜’. We checked out early to let tgem have the room,but had a late flight - they stored our luggage and we used the pool (and bar) before heading to the airport - much appreciated!

Conveniently location within Bukit Bintang, next to MRT and Monorail. But room is dusty. I mean really dusty. Like the room I was given was not occupied for a long period before me.
