Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Newish property very close to Bukit Bintang stations (and shopping) but relatively quiet. Room was well-appointed,good bed and loads of hot water - bit weird only having Netflix or YouTube, but liveable. Breakfast was good value and not rushed - if you have an early day trip, tell the breakfast supervisor the day before and they'll arrange some sandwiches and fruit for you to take. Pool was super but wait until after 8.30am as the cleaner works on the pool at 8am😒. We checked out early to let tgem have the room,but had a late flight - they stored our luggage and we used the pool (and bar) before heading to the airport - much appreciated!

Conveniently location within Bukit Bintang, next to MRT and Monorail. But room is dusty. I mean really dusty. Like the room I was given was not occupied for a long period before me.

I really love the hotel Vibes
Your hotel is so instagramable and aesthetic I really love the swimming pool, breakfast and your room. I would recommend and will repeat to check in here again. Just the parking quite disappointed because very limited and need to pay. Others was okay.
