Good hotel but the AC wasn't good.
The hotel is good. But we had this horrible sound coming from the AC amd they couldn't fix it. The streets around the hotel aren't clean and the view from our room wasn't good as well.

Disappointing service
Limited parking space, only first come first serve basis, information on the listing is misleading. Staff can’t be bothered to help liaise arrangements for parking nor talk nicely for other suggestions. Basically proposed you to go outside parking and check yourself if there are parking lots available. It just seems to me that staff are unhappy to welcome us in overall. The public parking aunty is more friendly than the hotel staff and though it the lots are full but she say to leave my car key with her and she will help made arrangements later. THIS IS CALL SERVICE!

Not too bad
Location is convenient. overall pleasant stay. Just that if you are driving, may not be able to get the parking lot as limited lots available, especially during weekend.

Chic, cool, convenient, clean, warm helpful staff
It is situated in the heart of KL city, although seemingly tucked in a quiet corner. But this helped to shield the hotel from the monorail track and ensure quietness at night when sleep. 3 minutes walk to bukit bintang monorail and mrt, 5 mins walk to pavilion, 17 mins walk to twin towers. The hotel service is fantastic; staff are friendly and quick to help. The rooms are beautifully clean, the bed mattress is firm and pillow is comfortable. The design is chic and chill. Probably the only interesting design is the small pool located beside the bar on top floor, which provides aesthetic view more than practical use. Though just a short 1 night stay, I rested very well. The hotel did made me consider extending my dtay in KL.
