When we enter the lobby the staff don't even stand to greet or entertain us, the young lady with a violet hair that really hard for her to smile, the hotel is small and no lift, well it's ok, no problem with that as long the room is clean, yes the room is clean but the problem is the toilet...

The price fit the condition. The location is strategic. If this price is what you want, youll know what to expect. However the room condition was okay and safe I think. You can find great food and bars close by.

Right in the heart of KK I checked in early in to a clean room. The way to my room was kind of strange though, some stairs up through a walkway of KK food court before you enter the part with hotel rooms. The shower is small but has everything. Maybe an hotel by the hour, the first night at...

Stay Inn is a place that makes you feel like you just arrived in an 'by the hour hotel' (if you know what I mean..). Generally it looked clean (floor, sheets, towels) but looking a bit closer the sheets were stained and the walls had some questionable white stains above the bed (..) and some weird red stains on the...

So this is a a budget hotel aimed at domestic travellers. The key selling point is the location. The Good: Location - near everything. Right next to a chemist/laundry/mall/shops/massage/seafood market... you name it - it is within 5 minutes (at most) by foot. Plus it is an easy walk to the waterfront. Price - seemed reasonable to us. The not...

- Cleanliness 7/10 - Quite small, my friend got a cut in the bathroom as it wasn't very spacious - Toilet roll was rerolled from jumbo roll, something the owner is trying to save cost - Not recommend for old people - Do not take it if you gave high expectations for accommodation - Overall I will not come back...

Desk Officers are very helpful. They even assisted me in looking for tours. They are accommodating. For me, this is a plus. The inn, in general, is well furbished. It is clean and well sustained. I took the single room and its enough to move around. Restroom is tidy. Bed linen is well kept. Location wise, it's far from the...

There were mixed reviews of this hotel so we weren't expecting much. It did not disappoint! Location - very central. No need for a taxi from the airport, just take an airport bus (RM5) and ask for the 1st stop. Get off at the centre point shopping centre, cross the road towards the petrol station and walk for 2 mins....

Being here one night in March'14. I've been staying in budget accommodation previously but this one is certainly in its own league I supposed. The room is super small to fit two adults. Noise from the outside can easily penetrates the wall. The only good thing about this "budget" hotel is the location. Conclusion: A Run-down premise and not properly...
