never again at this KL hotel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 17, 2008

the rooms are small and basic (with a capital B)

the room i was in was dusty and the A/C was functioning at less than a quarter capacity - it was just blowing air out of a corner. when i reported the fault, the receptionist advised that the A/C unit be looked at instead of allocating me a new room (everything else was, as yet, untouched in the room at the time). Then maintenance unit tried to pass off the A/C unit as working just fine. After a few minutes he finally agreed to try and fix it. and when he did finally get the A/C unit to work properly, he left the room with all the A/C unit's accumulated dust all over the bed. The next morning, the entire bed was filled with even more dust.

there is parking under the hotel but there are applicable charges.

needless to say, i'm not impressed, and given the price of the standard rooms, you can get better deals at a proper hotel around the corner for just RM20 (about US$6) more.

Unique Quality: It is certainly central, with and close to shopping action and food (on Jalan Alor)

Directions: Close to Sungei Wang Plaza on Bujit Bintang Road. And very close to Jalan Alor.

Checking out early at Replica Inn

I had discovered this hotel
back at home via the internet.
I had tried e-mailing them a couple of times,
but they never responded.

To play it safe,
I booked only one night.

When I got there,
I was asked to leave
a deposit for 200 MYR.

The hotel is centrally located
in the Bukit Bintang,
walking distance from
all the commercial shops.

But it is also off the main street
where a lot of smelly, cheap eats are.

As a female traveling alone,
I didn’t really feel that safe there.

So, definitely bring a locked suitcase,
to put away all valuables.

The room is dead simple and basic.
But generally clean,
with a view of the windows
of another building.

The bathroom is even more basic,
with fungus growing on the shower curtain.

The water heater only provided luke warm water,
and the toilet wasn’t working.

During the night,
I could hear everyone who spoke in the corridor
and even my neighbors who
were staying in the adjacent room.

Then in the middle of the night,
someone opened my door,
but luckily I had the lock bar on,
so they didn’t come in.

Since I didn’t really feel happy here,
I went ahead and walked around the corner
on the main street to scout out other hotels
and decided that I would
check out the following morning.

Early next morning when
I went to check out
and receive the remaining total of my deposit,
I noticed they were charging me
more than what was stated on the internet.

Mind you, I had a confirmed rate and reservation sheet
of which I provided to the man at the reception,
and then he started arguing
that the rates were different on the weekends.

So, we got into a lengthy conversation on
why is it that they quote one rate
and then charging another.

He then took out several sheets of papers,
which included copies of the e-mails that I had sent
and that they had never replied.

Finally, after 20 minutes or so
of discussion,
he finally gave me
the total to be refunded.

If you’re on a tight budget,
and don’t really care for security and comfort,
this can be a hotel to consider because of its location.

But if you have a little bit more of cash to spend,
stay around the corner at one of the better hotels.
