Samadhi is very unusual for an urban hotel. There are only about a dozen rooms, built around a nice pool in a tropical garden. It feels like a small exclusive resort next to a beach, but you're in a suburb of KL. The hotel isn't in the middle of things, but KL is so spread out that the location is ok. You'll be taking a lot of cab rides no matter where you stay. However, cab drivers haven't heard of this hotel, so it's hard to find it the first time it's so low key that there isn't even a name on the front gate. Room was really huge. Decorated in tropical 'exotic' style. A bit kitschy and dated, but ok. The room wasn't new, but well maintained. We were able to go directly from our room down a ladder right into the pool, which was wonderful. The jacuzzi in the room was very big but the water was on the cool side nice for cooling down after wandering around the city, but you can't stay in too long. My only complaints are that the room was really dark (hard to read at night) and the jacuzzi was too cool. Breakfast was tasty. Staff was polite and efficient. We had an enjoyable stay. This is a great place to stay if you want a relaxing oasis in the city some place to unwind after sightseeing or business.

There are definitely pros and cons about staying at the hotel, for us there were sadly more cons and I would not recommend it to anyone. The positives It is in a beautiful location close to everything. The resteraunt is very good (best food we had in Malaysia). The design and rooms are very cool and trendy... Feels very much like a magazine. The cons now maybe we arrived on a bad day but it did seem that we had entered faulty towers. Things did not get off to a good start. When we arrived we asked for a room downstairs and were told we would need to pay circa 200us for the privilege... After a heated debate we were accommodated in a room with no pool access but on the ground floor for no extra money. The debate about this seemed ridiculous to us... The reception staff member seemed not to care and unable to make a decision and forthright that under no circumstances could we have a ground floor room..we had to ask for the manager to be called... He said he would see what he could do and we were accommodated in a room with no pool access but on the ground floor. We were told to go for a walk for an hour or two so the room could be made ready. Things did not go well from here... We had trouble using the TV (it is very complex three remotes are involved) and the wifi did not seem to work for my husband (I had no troubles)..when we tried to ring reception about the TV we discovered there is no phone and my husband had to walk out of the room and get someone to come and f
