– Review based on my stay on July 2016 as published on Tripadvisor –
Read some good review on the internet I decided to stay here during my 10 hours transit in KL. Unfortunately it was rather not so good experience; maybe it because I booked the dorm instead of normal room. I don’t feel safe enough during my short stay in this hotel. The reason is that the dorm is actually NOT INSIDE of the Hotel! And the locker also not working that well…
I arrive around 00:30AM. After checked in with the reception at hotel lobby, we have to GO OUT because the access to the dorm is from outside of the hotel. The dorm’s door was literary less than 2 meters from pedestrian walk. There is a gate, but not secure. No lock at all. Everyone can open that gate. Then the dorm’s door is just 2 steps away from that gate. We need to use our key to enter, but still… my bed was just next to the door. The room is quite dusty and smelly.
The locker was rather small. I can only put my hand bag inside the locker. Then in the morning, I cannot use my key to open the locker! It took the reception more than 15 mins to help me open the locker. So the taxi that I order need to wait because of this. Thank God I didn’t miss my flight!
Airport shuttle… Make sure you check your spam folder or read those small fine print on booking.com if you request for airport transfer when you book online. I put the pick-up request through booking.com, apparently I have to place the request directly on the hotel website at least 48 hours prior my departure. I only realise it 35 hours before my departure when checking my spam email. Called to the hotel and explain, but they cannot do anything about it. So I need to take taxi my own to get there. In contrary, for the airport drop, we can only book once we checked in. Then again, because I arrived 00:30am and about to book for airport drop-off, they cannot accommodate because they said the shuttle before 8am already full! So if you want to stay here for the sake saving some money utilizing their cheap airport transfer and dorm like me, think again… because it might be not really working as you planned!
