The rooms are really depressing. The first room I was allocated had a window that faced out onto noisy Chinatown and there was absolutely no chance of resting there. I asked to move to a quieter one and was allocated a windowless room! I just took it as I was tired but it wasn't much quieter as there were kids running up and down the corridor all day and night. The lights are fluorescent and create quite a clinical atmosphere in the rooms. The beds were clean enough as was the bathroom but the room was really quite depressing and I didn't want to spend any more tim in it than I needed to. Breakfast was included - it consisted pretty much of just rice, which I guess isn't surprising considering I was in a hotel in Chinatown in Malaysia. The location is okay for shopping and Chinese food, but there's no real local cuisine. The hotel is also hard to find so get a taxi. The streets are narrow and packed and it'd be easy to miss it unless you took a taxi. However, given the rock bottom price I paid, I can't complain too much. It's okay for a one night if you are just needing somewhere to - attempt - to sleep before transiting elsewhere.
