    Great place to stay if you have to be near the hospital”

    I stayed here for 3 nights as my daughter was admitted to the nearby hospital and they only allowed one caretaker (my wife) to stay overnight. Rather than drive to n from my house everyday to see my wife and daughter, i stayed in Urban Living as it was a 5 minutes drive to the hospital. I only used the room from 10pm-7am everyday. It had all the things i needed, clean room, comfortable bed, quiet surroundings and great location. There are restaurants and a grocery store in the same building block. Overall a great place to stay. Would definitely recommend to others.

As for the room, rest assured you’ll have your own privacy, you will be able to sleep through the night without waking up to noises next door or outside. There’s a vending machine at the lobby for you to buy your snacks..

    Security wasnt friendly and not helpful at all. Kept yelling at us to park at Block B. If i knew where it was, i wouldn't ask. Check in was smooth but the room service is very slow. We requested a ironing board but it took us 3 hours to wait. I had to call the management in order to get it asap. Room was clean and the shower heater was working good. Parking charges is RM6 (max) and the parking is always full.

    Stayed 1 night in March 2022

    Satisfying but not satisfied”

    I went for a stay here for convocation day. I am satisfied with the accomodation but if you are trying to do makeup, this place is not for you. It has no mirrors at all in the bedroom. However, it has in the bathroom but the lights is very dim which is very disappointing. There should be a better lighting where there’s a mirror. Also, the parking price is not free and the pay is very expensive. You should pay per entry for RM7 & sometimes the price change which is suspicious. It is hard for those people who need to have important business to went in and out of the building. Also, the iron is not included in each room but only on the lobby area. The iron is also faulty, I got my shawl burned even I set it to a minimum temperature. Overall, I had not a very good experience staying here but the facilities are very nice.
