Positive Reviews

Larkin’ about

The buses at nearby Terminal Larkin will take you much further afield and do so quite cheaply. Kuala Lumpur is just one possibility. Terminal Larkin is also a good place for food. There really is quite a lot about in this Larkin suburb.

A well-kept budget hotel

The hotel is clean and kept in good order. The bed is comfortable and the decor and furnishings are attractively fashionable. The air-con actually works well and members of staff are very friendly and always greet you warmly.

Birds of a feather

It’s in a great setting with easy access to a number of popular attractions. Families, in particular, ‘flock’ to Angry Birds Activity Park. It’s only about three miles away … as the crow flies … and includes kids’ favourites such as the Danger Zone and Red’s Jungle Run. Plus there’s some welcome respite in the Parents Lounge.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast for one?

Breakfast isn’t free for everyone. If for instance, you are sharing a room, there is one free pack issued ... and all others are chargeable. Breakfast is free, but only for the chosen few. Start adding extra breakfasts to the tariff and the price becomes less attractive. It is also served a bit late, particularly for business people keen to make an early start.

Plumbing alert!

The bathroom stinks to high heaven! The room is small so the smell gets everywhere.

Missing some essentials

You can’t contact reception directly because the room has no telephone. Power points are in short supply and some bottled drinking water would be very welcome. There is no room safe either and there is hardly any luggage storage space. There’s no soundproofing either, so whilst the hotel is a popular family choice, the accompanying noise levels can be a turn-off for other guests.
