About City Central Hotel KL
To get to City Central Hotel KL from KL Sentral Station go out of the station and into Nu Sentral shopping mall. The hotel is at street level on the other side of the large building containing both the shopping mall and the train station. When I arrived at KL Sentral Station I asked one of the security guards in the mall for directions to Jalan Tun Sambanthan, although I could just followed the signs to the MRL station and I would arrived on Jalan Tun Sambanthan close to the City Central Hotel KL which is 100 metres walk aways from the MRL station near the top end of the Jalan Tun Sambanthan Road. City Central Hotel KL has a distinctive red sign over the street level lobby.
Jalan Tun Sambanthan is a good place to stay because there are plenty of restaurants, shops and even a couple of bars located 2 minutes walk from the entrance to the hotel. I arrived in Kuala Lumpur late in the evening after crossing the border from Thailand at Padang Besar and taking the train to Kuala Lumpur and had an excellent and cheap Indian meal in a restaurant close to the City Central Hotel KL before checking in.
Service at City Central Hotel KL
From the point I arrived at the hotel to the point I left I was impressed by the pleasant and friendly service. The man at reception was very polite and cheerful and I completed the check-in process very quickly.
I also tried out the restaurant/cafe attached to the hotel for breakfast and later in afternoon before catching a train to Ipoh. The breakfast, included in the room price, was just enough to set me for the day. I had coffee, juice, cereal and milk, some good fried rice and toast with jam. The service at breakfast was good. When I went back for a drink and a snack in the afternoon the waiting staff were quick to take my order and quick to service me my drink and food. All good and well priced.
Rooms at City Central Hotel KL
I booked a double room, which is the cheapest of the room types at this hotel, online which was great value for money. The room was just big enough to walk comfortable walk around the bed and had a modern en-suite bathroom, wall mounted flat screen TV with English language channels, a small fridge, tea & coffee making facilities, and adjustable A/C. The bed was comfortable and the linen was of a good quality. For the price and the city centre location the room was faultless.
You get a better price on rooms if you booked in advance online using the Search Box below than if you walk in and book.
Breakfast is included in the room price.
