This will be helpful for my drive up. Thanks!!
For regulars it sounds simple, but for 1st timer it might be a bit tricky if not careful...just go slow after Sungai Besi toll, there are at least 3 exits/ slip-roads close to each other - abt 300m - 500m in between..dun make yr turn too early otherwise it might lead u to Ipoh etc...

after Sungai Besi toll just stop by petrol station to refuel, check back yr bearings and take opp to get reconfirmation fr ppl there...as mentioned by other bros, after toll keep to the left/ middle lane - look out for the Cheras exit signboard...go slow!

Actually for those regulars - most of us felt there is no significant difference between standard (RM 60) vs deluxe (RM 70) in terms of size & layout..in fact personally i prefer Standard room - with carpet less noise fr upstairs compared to deluxe...

of course the online rate of RM10 difference means minus the free beverage pack, hot water kettle n mini fridge which i dun really use in those rare occasions i end up getting fwh...u can always use the hot/cold water dispenser outside near hallway.

Btw - both standard n deluxe comes with mini safety box in the room.

Kuantan is the town in state of Pahang & Genting Highlands oso in Pahang...Cheras is the more immediate area in KL tat u will pass thru enroute to Genting Highlands destination. After Cheras, u will pass thru Ampang as well...

The signboard will therefore indicate Cheras/ Kuantan... can't remember exactly other names/places stated on the same signboard....but Cheras definitely won't be wrong...as there are other routes going to Kuantan/ Genting...the via Cheras route is simpler route for 1st timer...

I won't go for standard only because sometimes in middle of night want to drink warm water and don't want to go out to corridor to get water. The long corridor......

Check agoda cancellation policy for your booking. Sometimes within 3 days still can cancel and get full refund. Can call them for advise.

You make it sound like the longest march.
