“Treated like family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2010

We enjoyed thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alex's Guest House. We stayed for 2 months. The best things about it were Alex himself, who is a very kind, helpful, and generous person, and the other people who stayed there - everyone treated us like family. Our 2 yr old daughter got sick with a 103.5 (39.5) fever a few days after our arrival and Alex put us in the car and started driving to the hospital. The location is reasonably convenient and in a residential neighborhood. Ten minute walk to a huge mall with supermarkets and tons of restaurants, 5 minute walk to a choice of 2 nursery schools/kindergartens. 2 minute walk to KTM commuter train. The rooms were not luxurious, but clean and adequately furnished, with air cond and attached bathroom. Highly recommended, especially for long-term stay.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2009

We stayed here three nights and found the room to be small and rather uncomfortable and unpleasant. But at least it was clean (except for some mildew). Also, you should know that it is located quite outside of town center. There is a train station right next to it, where sometimes a train will stop. (But only until 10 pm or so.) Alex is friendly and helpful, but his recommendations are very touristy, so to speak.
All in all, we would not come back here. For 90 RM a night (without breakfast) you can find far better in KL.

Staying with Alex is like staying with an old friend.

He is very friendly, kind, and even shows you around if he has time. His rooms are clean, his staff is efficient, and his guesthouse is conveniently located near a railway station. Alex prides himself on quality and it shows everywhere. Alex asks questions and is eager to help where he can.

This is the closest guesthouse/hotel experience we've had to our Couch Surf experiences. We truly felt at home here and can't wait to go back.
