Magnificent view in the heart of the city

Posted Jul 6, 2017
Pros: The staff, definitely. So friendly and not a single of them had any issue with the guests.
Cons: I'm not sure if this place has a swimming pool.
Location: You can go anywhere in the city as the nearest train station is less than 500 meters away. It's the Masjid Jamek station.
I checked-in late and the process of getting checked-in was pretty smooth. I enjoyed the stay as the view is amazing and close to the LRT station, Masjid Jamek. Overall, I would recommend this place to the tourist. With such a best price, you can live in the heart of the city and get a magnificent view.

Worst Nightmare

Posted Jun 2, 2017
-the hotel is rundown and under maintained. -first step into the room I saw cracks on the wall and dirt & stains all over the furnitures. -2 cockroaches welcomed us by dashing across the bed and the bathroom. -complanined to the receptionist and check out immediately. The receptionist promised to work on the refund with Expedia however, to date I have not been receiving any updates from them even with my follow up email. -a big NO and NEVER to me!

Functional hotel

Posted May 26, 2017
It was a good hotel, clean room and friendly attentive staff. Good place to stay if you need to be in around Masjid Jamek area(5-10 mins walking distance).

Hiccup upon check-in

Posted Apr 25, 2017 on Hotels
The reception could not locate one more room and we had to wait for about 30 mins. I made 2 bookings separately. Firstly for 2 rooms; registered in my name and auntie's, Norliah. 3 days later, made another booking for an additional room in my name again. Upon checking in, I was given 2 rooms in my name ie. one from 1st and the other from 2nd booking. They were searching under my name. After so much of time wasted, the superior came and found another room under Norliah. Shouldn't it come together with my 1st booking ? I hope the hotel will be more efficient.

Free Upgrade to Suite

Posted Apr 17, 2017 on Hotels
I received free upgrade from Deluxe room to Suite. My kids was delighted! The rooms was in a tip top condition but the local area / parking could be improve. We are however unable to connect to Wifi and was informed by the hotel staff that the service was facing problem at that time. Thank you.

Not sure if i wanna come back again

Posted Apr 11, 2017
I used to stay at Silka a few years back coz of the location... Room was nice and clean and I did enjoy my stay that time... but this time I was soo disappointed coz the rooms were all infested with roaches!!(I booked 6 rooms, btw). The carpet were not cleaned properly coz I could see crumbs and i found a sock under the tv console!!! And also the hotel needs to do something abt the wifi connection.. I could not connect to the wifi in my own room but instead i hv to use the wifi from my parents' room... even when i can get connected, it'll be super SLOW! And always get disconnected... sooo frustrating!!! Don't think I'm coming back... not until the hotel gets a better ratings from other travellers

Convenient location but dirty room

Posted Mar 22, 2017 on Hotels
Booked 2 rooms and stayed 2 nights. First enter the rooms the coffee & sugar sachets were not available. Then realised both of our rooms plenty of small cockroaches crawling everywhere. Despite informing the front desk office, nothing was done to fumigate rooms or change rooms. Previously stayed was satisfactory but next time need to think twice of coming this hotel again.

Good for night stay only

Posted Mar 17, 2017 on Hotels
Very good location for shopping and eateries.. But condition of rooms can be better, with little critters crawling around... For night stay is recommended but for leisure and relaxation give it a miss.

Old 2* Hotel in need of repair

Posted Mar 9, 2017 on Lastminute
Pros: Location
Cons: Room renovation, incl. pool and gym facilties.
Location: Food and shopping everywhere...
***** Definately not a 4 star hotel***** All staff were all very freindly, generally helpful, and apologetic (at appropriate times), however we found ourselves without towels one day and without toilet paper three (out of four) days. Some days our service calls would not be actioned until calling 3 or 4 times, often over several hour timeframes. The room was mostly clean, except some dust builld up in hard to get to to places, however our toilet was blocked and there was significant damage in the room (windows not able to be clsoed, power points damaged etc.). Hot food order from room service was delivered cold. The location was great for us as we were able to walk to almost everything we wanted, and the private tour operators at the front were very helpful :)
