“Perfect Oasis in the middle of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

Great location, Great staff, very nice rooms and well furnished. Even though this hotel is very nice and comfortable the best part of the hotel is the willing and friendly staff. Set in a good location close to all that you need in KL. I will be back for sure next time I am in KL

What a gorgeous boutique hotel. I stayed here with my husband and two year old in July 2010. We moved here from Lodge Paradize Hotel, which was still under renovation, so this place seemed very quiet to us. Actually, for one evening there was some kind of funeral vigil, with music and singing, going on a door or two down the street. That's the only sound I remember being able to hear from the street (or inside the hotel), and it did not go late and was actually really really neat to hear. I'm just sorry we didn't get any of it recorded.
We moved to this hotel because our iPad had been stolen in Langkawi and I just really wanted a computer to buy flights and whatnot. This place had a big flat-screen TV in each room and you used a remote to switch it between TV and computer mode. Luxury! Also, the hotel is gorgeous: Big soft four-poster bed, lovely wooden furniture, wood floor. The room seemed very spacious to us. The common areas--hallways, lobby, entrance, etc.--are beautiful with lots of nice details. I would agree with another reviewer who commented that it is has the ambience of a lovely restored Peranakan home.
The only con--but it's not really a con--that I can think of is that there was no window to the outside. Just one that looked into the central atrium of the hotel. But really, that keeps the room very quiet, so it's hard to complain about it.
Compared to our first hotel, the Lodge Paradize (which was literally two steps from Rajah Chulan monorail station), this place was a little bit out of the way. But it was a nice change. I really didn't need to be a one minute walk from the mall with the Prada and Louis Vuitton stores!
I was perfectly happy to eat the hotel breakfast, which is a lot more than I can say about some other places we stayed.

Great place and would stay again. Felt like an oasis in the middle of busy KL. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to suite but then had to move due to air con not working, but other room fine. We were upgraded again on our return stay at the end of our trip, to the suite - really nice and very comfortable. Very handy location. The street side rooms may be noisy, but ones opening onto the courtyard were quiet. Lots of restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: if you want quiet night choose rooms on the courtyard rather than street view.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for 1 night in September and we wished we could have stayed longer! The herbal tea you receive upon check-in is a nice gesture. We were upgraded to a deluxe room, being low season, and we had a bit of a laugh when we saw the entwined swan towels on the bed - very romantic!
The room is so spacious and has everything you need - coffee and tea bench, sitting area, robes and slippers, a safe... and the highlight for us was the big flat screen TV that we used to access the internet (for free). They also have free wifi. The bathroom in the deluxe room has beautiful decor and 2 showers - one regular and one over a stone bath.
Location-wise it is just fantastic, so close to the bustling shopping strip of Bukit Bintang. We had stayed in Chinatown earlier in the trip and we preferred Bukit Bintang as the atmosphere is a lot nicer, but still a lot happening.
We thought the breakfast was very good as well. Overall, a great, relaxing stay!

The Anggun is located a short walk from the Bukit Bintang monorail stop which is five stops from KL Sentral station. It is situated in an interesting area with full flavours and excitement of Asia's street markets, shop houses and street food stalls, yet a short walk away are the Shopping Malls and bars of Bukit Bintang. Yet the atmosphere of the hotel was calmand quiet. For the tourist, on the same street as Anggun is a stop for the hop on - hop off tour bus. The breakfast room is very pleasant and the eggs cooked to order. The same room is used as a restaurant in the evening. We had a beer there, which was excessively expensive.

The hotel photographs are very flattering. The standard room was a bit small and the bathroom was crazy. The toilet and shower were one unit separated by a shower curtain which meant though the toilet unit was dry the whole floor was wet, ugh. The room was a bit small and included a computer, which for most of the time was not usable for the Internet and had no printing facility. When asking questions of the young reception staff I was never certain I was getting valid answers, this was particularly emphasized when our airport taxi did not turn up, though I had asked and checked about it many times the night before. You may imagine the stress though the problem was resolved, involving a 90 miles per hour race against time. We asked for a packed breakfast for an early start. It did not turn up, though one was made on the day for us, after a second request, which was okay if you like jam and bread. I don't. It is fair to say I was under whelmed, but for the money I do not know if I could have got any better.

We stayed twice in the Anggun on our recent trip through Malaysia - once at the start of our trip for 3 nights, and for 1 night at the end. We got upgraded to a suite on our 3 night stay, which was a nice surprise.

Pros:
- Location - right in the middle of Bukit Bintang with shopping malls, restaurants, the Jalan Alor hawker street in immediate walking distance. You can also walk to Chinatown (20 minute walk - don't forget sun protection and take something to drink along the way), and a monorail station is 5 minutes away too.
- Rooms are lovely - the suite is larger than the other rooms, but offers the same nice king size bed and bathroom as the other room we had. The suite faces the street, which is nice in some way as you get to see the busy KL life, but can also be quite loud (see Cons below for more). The other rooms face the courtyard and are on the small side, but nicely done and good for a few days.
- Breakfast in the top floor restaurant is fantastic. We usually chose the Indian breakfast and loved it every day, together with the fresh fruit.
- Staff is friendly and helpful - all of the staff at the reception are friendly, have a smile for you and were very helpful with our questions and requests.

Cons:
- Noise from the street. While the suite with the view of the street was nice, the noise coming through the windows at all times of day and night can be annoying if you are a light sleeper. The street has lots of traffic despite being a one way small street only. So bring some earplugs or ask for a quiet room if the noise bothers you.

Overall, I would recommend the Anggun hotel because of its location, friendly staff and great breakfast, plus it is a small and unique boutique hotel, which certainly was more interesting for us than staying in a large hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room. While the suite was nice, spacious and interesting due to the view of the stre...

This boutique hotel is so beautiful - as you would expect with a converted building each room is quite quirky and the reception area and the roof top restaurant / bar are lovely. So nice to stay somewhere small, intimate and not a large souless hotel.

The rooms have good furniture and fittings and being relatively new are bang up to the mark.

The Anggun is also really well situated - just a short walk to the Bukit Bintang shopping malls (for those so inclined - and Jalan Alor, a food market street, is right next door so dinner is easily fixed. Sao Nam, a very good Vietnamese restaurant, is just up the road and there are convenience stores and the metro system close by.
