We came here to take a rest and wait for our bus ride home at Puduraya, which is just about 200m away from the hotel. Luckily they had day-use room available on the day we went - sometimes day-use room are fully booked and would not be available (we had been passing by and inquired a few times previously but no rooms were available back then).
We got ourselves a double room. It was not big, but it was clean and had no funny smell. Nonetheless, the hotel staffs at front desk were not very professional - they argued among themselves in front of the customers. No language problem with them as they spoke Cantonese and so did we. Fast food (KFC, Nando's) or local hawker fare (bak kut teh, chicken rice, wantan mee, etc...) is just 1 minute walk away. Watson and Guardian is close by as well.
For those who want a place to rest while waiting to board buses in Puduraya you can consider this little stopover - you get a decently clean place to shower and sleep, plus you get a place to put all your belongings while you explore Petaling Street.

I made my booking (Single room with single bed) via phone and banked in the deposit through Maybank2u. They don't take credit cards so have enough cash in hand if you have not settled the amount before checking in or booked and paid online.
Excellent location - just across from Bukit Bintang Monorail, right above McDonald's. Plenty of food outlets nearby. Bathroom is huge compared to the size of room I got. Hot/cold shower was functional with good water pressure. Clean towels. Both ceiling fan and air conditioner were available in my room. Good wifi connection. Room was packaged together with breakfast, albeit a simple one (toast with coffee or tea).
Lighting was a bit poor in the room - not good if you plan to read. One would have to climb 2 stories up to reach the lobby - not good if you have huge luggage with you. No latch on the door means no extra in-room security so you just have to rely on the door lock. No TV.
I am a Hilton Honours Member and whenever possible, I would like to stay at a Hilton Property because of the Perks and also the standard that is maintained worldwide, whether in salalah or Kuching.
I chose this hotel for one day in between my trips to Indonesia and arrival and departure from Europe.
I am glad I did.
The front office staff and the lady behind the counter at Executive Lounge were friendly and helpful.
A Hospitality Intern from Holland, Miss C, who spoke Spanish was a pleasure to chat with.
close to LRT
walking distance to KLCC
Nice breakfast at the Executive Floor
Good comfortable rooms with great views over the city
Reasonable price for a Hilton Hotel , less expensive than average considering the style and quality
I arrived in KL early morning via bus late December 2011 and I was supposed to check-in at Sheraton Imperial later that day. HQ has prearranged me to accompany the Chinese delegates to Melaka on a field visit and that means I could only check in when we came back from Melaka. I was thinking of looking for a place to freshen up before I go to Sheraton.
Arriving in Puduraya via bus, I walked to Jalan Sultan from Puduraya, and I remembered of a hotel that offered rooms by the hour. I was thinking of checking in, have shower and change. But then, I was out of luck, because there were no vacancy.
A man approached me as I walked out of the hotel. He asked me whether I am looking for a place to stay and showed me his name card at the same time. Normally I would just ignore people that come up to me and offered stuff but my guts told me this guy should be OK. His name card told me he is one of the managers in Suzie's Guesthouse at Jalan Tun H.S. Lee. Yeah, I have seen that place before, but it never crossed my mind that I would be going to that place someday :) I told him I just need a place for a couple of hours for shower and change. So in the end he offered me RM15 net for shower (with fresh towel), breakfast and internet usage and I accepted. I think it's reasonable but then again I don't really know what is the on going rate for something like this.
He made a call to the guesthouse to inform the reception of an incoming guest and we walked from Jalan Sultan to Jalan Tun H.S. Lee together, which took less than 10 minutes (I think!).
The reception is located on the 1st floor and the staircase access is being control - only those with security pass could enter. Guests have to take off shoes upon entering the guesthouse. The interior is nice and comfortable. I like the red and white theme that they use in the common area. Being able to walk bare-footed on the carpeted floor makes one feels at home. I could also see that they have individual room as well as dorm. Left my luggage with the receptionist while to get my shower. Toilet and bathroom were clean and well maintained. I had a couple of toasted white bread with margarine and sugar and a cup of tea (and that was the breakfast he meant earlier!) after shower.
It was time to go after spending almost one and a half hour there. I didn't have time to surf the net even thought internet usage was part of the deal - better leave early then to be caught in the rush hour jam.
We enjoyed a warm welcome upon arrival. Our stay was originally for 4 nights but we extended the stay for one more before moving on to Langkawi. We were happy to hear that we are upgraded to B. The hotel was full so we made the last day’s booking through internet thinking that we would either be asked to move to another room or pay more. Neither of the two happened and this was highly appreciated. We remained in our upgraded room with no extras!
STAFF: Impeccable service -a bunch of professionals, very warm and friendly and always on hand to help with their local knowledge. They helped us choose some nice cultural and lifestyle activities which otherwise we might have missed.
LOCATION: I would say with one word “Unique” It is just a 5 minute walk from the metro station and one stop from here to the city centre and the Suria -Malaysia’s premium shopping centre which is located at the base of the Petronas Twin Towers. Besides the luxury and fashionable shops (Burberry, Cartier, Chanel, Prada, and many more, it houses also cafes, several restaurants, a 12 screen cinema, a Concert hall, the Petronas Art Gallery and a Science Discovery Centre.
RESIDENCE: The inspired residence features high quality, stylish and exceptionally appointed living spaces. Signature touches make the guest feels right at home and this is how we felt the moment we stepped through.
ROOM: We were shown to our spotlessly clean apartment on the 10th floor and the cabin boy demonstrated the use of the different facilities.
The room was spacious, very comfy with a stunning view.
The fully equipped kitchen, the separate dining and living area, the coffee/tea facilities, the washing machine, drier, toiletries, the amazing bedroom, the 2 flat screen TVs, the sofa and the massive walk in wardrobe and all other facilities were what really made the difference!
We truly felt like home away from home here. The residential-style amenities ensure warmth and comfort with attention given to detail. We felt at ease and longed to ‘return home’ after each day’s active cultural outing.
INTERNET: We could relax within the privacy of our own living space and enjoy the modern and innovative business -broadband internet services that were provided.
We had a card daily with the name of the person who was responsible for the room’s cleaning in case we needed any extras, and we were daily provided with a newspaper.
BREAKFAST: We could have our breakfast down at the small restaurant next to the hotel after showing our vouchers of course. Breakfast was fine and the people of the restaurant were nice.
Lunch was also fine –not to mention that there was a ‘take away’ and we could order anything from our apartment.
I also need to mention that after dining in the room we had all dishes washed the next day.
SWIMMING POOL: Roof top ‘infinity’ pool, is a great place to hang out, as well as the Jacuzzi and gym. It feels as if you are swimming on top of the world! The view from up here is breathtaking.
I highly recommend it and if we ever return we will certainly book here again.
The Barry I*nn is a transit hotel relatively near KLIA, and it just that, a bare bones transit hotel.
Nothing there really apart from the hotel in a rundown business park.
It does provide a free shuttle to and from the airport, and breakfast starts at 4am (somethinng you very rarely get,) and there is free wifi even if reception do not know about it.
There is no restaurant so to speak, but there is a very good local restaurant 2 mins walk away, (also very cheap)
The rooms are small, relatively bare, but adequate if you are in transit as I was, although I was there for 2 nights as I went into KL the middle day. I chose the hotel as I had a 6:30am flight the next morning and did not want to have to get up at like 2am to get to the airport.
A beautifully designed hotel amidst a very relaxing environment..on the Putrajaya lake. The atmosphere is quite serene for those seeking tranquility and relaxation. Staff are courteous and helpful and the Breakfast is excellent with very good service. Staff at the Check-out desk, Mohammed Azmil was especially friendly, efficient and professional.
A stroll around the hotel in the evening, in itself is a very enjoyable experience and one can always hire a bike at reasonable rates to bike around the lake. An array of water-sports facilities are on offer at the adjacent marina.
The Village Restaurant offers excellent food and we indulged in their seafood BBQ at the Lakeside with delight. The price was quite reasonable at 89 Ringgit per head.
There is one restaurant in the Marina next to the hotel (not hotel's property). Though the food and ambience is really good, the service is very unprofessional as the staff are apparently untrained. Eg. We were served bread and butter after we had almost finished our meal.
We had booked Deluxe rooms that were quite spacious and decent, though not luxurious. Perhaps the colour scheme did not give the feeling of luxury even though the room was well equipped.
Downside : the hotel interiors ad quite dull giving an unkept look, though housekeeping is quite good which I would expect of an Accor chain. Also, there are no proper signage to guide guests within the hotel facility. Being a spread-out hotel, it is very easy to get lost within the maze as the directions are either non-existent or inconsistent. The hotel management needs to seriously look into the same and review way-finding from a stranger's perspective.
The room lighting fixtures needs an upgrade and more lighting is required within the room to facilitate reading and writing.
Hi, I will advise to stay and concord hotel in KL as it is near petronas tower. Location is ideal and hotel is great. You will be finding Buket Bintang in 10 minutes walk only which is a famous tourist place.

Clean, excelent in service.
This is a hotel catering for mainly tourists from Iran and they are here by the hundreds, so a very interesting anthropological experience since it is their presence that you feel rather than any Malaysian one
very close to LRT PWTC station and also can reach other parts of central KL easily and also KLIA through KL sentral
large rooms somewhat faded
free wifi available in the looby and LAN connection also free in the rooms
I did not use any of the facilities as I used this hotel only to sleep during my very busy stay in Malaysia
4 days before my travel to Kuala Lumpur, I arranged my room reservation to Nest @Angsoka thru internet. The staff (name Thomas Ou, assured me the availability and given me the reservation code number. But when I arrived in their guesthouse 3am, the staff on duty inform me that they are fullybooked, I requested the staff to look in their computer system and he found out that my name is listed even my time of arrival is indicated. I argue that the purpose of room reservation is to ensure that room will be available for when I arrived.
I will not recommend this guesthouse to my fellow traveler, they didnt value their visitors/client in their guesthouse.
Again and again...opportunities to stay in a different hotel comes when the usual hotels 'sanctioned' by the company are fully booked by business travelers and/or tourists.
This time I ended up at the quite newly opened hotel i.e. Double Tree by Hilton.
The building was previously occupied with Crown Princess Hotel KL. Their tenure must have ended then and the building has now been fully refurbished.
This hotel located opposite the Ampang Park shopping complex just across Jalan Tun Razak within the INTERMARK Building. I stayed there for 2 nites with my hubby.
Since the hotel is practically new; the room is nicely furnished with King-sized bed. They also have twin bedded rooms. Bath room wall is of see-through glass in case you don't want to miss the movie on the TV. You can still enjoy your private moments by switching the button to roll down the blind otherwise it will be free show to your friends! No problem is its your spouse though :P
Room is equipped with tea/coffee making facilities & complimentary bottled mineral water replenished on daily basis.
Breakfast is served at Makan Kitchen on the 11th Floor. Its also open for lunch & dinner serving varieties of dishes from all over the world. Apart from the usual coffee or tea during breakfast you also have a choice of latte, cappuccino, mocha etc. They would not offer to you but you need to ask - and YES! its complimentary with your buffet breakfast.
Security to the guess room is almost assured since access is by using your own room key card as you entered the elevator/lift.
You will see most if not all of their staff wearing a button badge with "10" on it which means they are striving towards score of 10/10 for the on-line survey which will be send to each checked-out guess. Anything below 10 is considered a failure.
For some reason my score for them was pretty bad as they wrongly spelled my father's name despite I gave them my Identity Card at reception; wrongly informed me on the actual hotel Corporate rate and the chargeable parking for in-house guess :(
But their responses to my answered survey was quick with offer to complimentary upgrade me to Suite during my next stay - which I don't know when :P
Spa is also available - cant comment much as I dont have the opportunity to experience it.
You will be welcomed with warm palm-sized Chocolate Cookie at reception.
The pedestrian bridge from the hotel side of the road is connected directly into Ampang Park Shopping Complex. Infront of the Shopping Complex is the entrance to the LRT Kelana Jaya Line
We really enjoyed our stay at the Corus Hotel. We found a very good deal on the Air Asia website which included breakfast and free nights. As we arrived early we had to wait about one hour before our room was ready but this was no problem at all as we were still in there hours before the normal check in time. All staff we encountered were helpful and friendly.
Our room was very spacious and clean with a massive balcony that had fantastic views of one of the Petronas Towers. The bed was very comfortable unlike most beds in Asia that seem to be so hard. Breakfast choices were huge with plenty of options to suit all tastes.
Opposite the hotel is a 24 hour eatery called Nasa Kandar Pelita where simple meals for 2 adults will cost 10 Ringgit.
We loved the location of the Corus Hotel as it is only a couple of minutes walk to nice restaurants, Suria KLCC shopping centre, the Petronas Towers and the underground Putra LRT station is next door.
Butik Bintang is a short taxi ride away or hop on the free shuttle bus from the hotel.
I m quite familiar with www.hostelworld.com to find hostel for my accomodation. It is easy to book. U only pay 10% from the total amount on ur credit card. And the balace must be paid once you check in.
Several times i stayed in this hostel. Nice place. Easy to go here and there. Near from MRT. In the middle of Bukit Bintang. But not too crowded surounding.
Hope this information is usefull.
This is a new Hotel which I believe commenced operations in July 2010 and is situated at the Subang Parade area.
The Hotel entrance is quite hard to spot nestling near an entrance to the shopping mall. A lift to the second floor gets you to the Hotel lobby which is boutique in nature.
The rooms come equipped with wi-fi and the TV is a whole lot of gadget into itself, with movies, room service, browser, etc.. combined with the normal TV programmes. Initially, I was told that the system use to "hang" often but during my stay, it was okay. Perhaps, they have sorted the bug.
Breakfast was good and the spread varied.
The rooms are cosy and with a separate study area at the entrance with the bathroom sandwiched between the bed area.
Like the separation of the study area which may it feel almost like a suite room.
