I’m always appreciative of budget hotels; simply cos they provide, what else.. the most cost effective method for lodging while I splurge my hard earned cash on shopping! 😉
Though I do not have high criteria for budget hotels, knowing that it is budget and all, I do expect at the very least, SAFETY & CLEANLINESS.
My accommodation in Singapore was pretty cool – Prince of Wales Backpackers’ Hostel was clean, conveniently located & affordable.
And I was most pleased to say the same for Leisure Inn, after I viewed their rooms during the launch just days ago.
Located right the heart of KL, Leisure Inn on Jalan Changkat Thambi Dollah (along the same row as Shaw Parade), is just behind one of Malaysia’s international landmark, the Berjaya Times Square Mall.
Inside the lobby, Ms Cherrie Wong, the proprietor of the inn, has got a travel agency scheduled to be operational soon, for the convenience of her guests.
I shot a quick video to show the lobby area:
Leisure Inn main objective is very simple; to provide travellers to Kuala Lumpur affordable, no frills accommodation, coupled with a safe environment, yet not compromising on little luxuries like hot showers, hair dryers, WIFI (yay!) & LCD TVs.
Check out the video I took of the room & its adjoining washroom. :yes:
