We had a short but lovely stay here. It's right across the street from central market and a few minutes from kl station. The rooms were clean, airy, safe and comfortable. The staff were also quite friendly and helpful. Highly recommended! 😂

This is a good budget option situated in a convenient location next to Chinatown and a short walk from KL station. The twin room was very basic with just beds and no windows.

Stayed here two nights...was a good budget option, good location, staff seemed nice, clean and safe. We found it hard to find but after a long flight and maybe it was us! After walking up the stairs we feared the worst but was greeted by friendly staff on the reception floor which was also the hangout/breakfast area. Room was clean.... More

Good place, friendly and helpfull staff, clean, reasonable price, easy to reach when you missed your flight at KLIA2 ;-)the lodge is close to the public transports, central market and petaling street (walking distance). You can get everything you need ;-) I stayed at Matahari 3 times and if I come back to KL, I would stay here again.
