From the first moment after I arrived at 4 am in the morning I felt, that its more than just an accomodation. The owner Muhamad Syed was so friendly, even at this early time, and well informed about my stay. The next days I meet all his staff from Philippines, Ana Maria Maningo, Lourdes Rojo and Flordeliza Clores. Ist a... More

Nothing special, the rooms are more like cardboard boxes, But the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. For Kuala Lumpur it is supposedly good value, as the location is also very nice, right next-door to Chinatown.

We have just left after a 2 night stay and we were pretty glad to be checking out. Staff are friendly and pleasant, don't go over and above for you though. We were directed to the wrong bus station after showing which bus we had booked (luckily took our own advice instead). Room was so basic but value for money... More

Arrived here after a night at a less than pleasant hostel in Bukit Bintang, and it was absolutely a breath of fresh air. Clean, friendly, and centrally located (walkable distance to the botanical gardens and right on the edge of the Chinatown market), Matahari Lodge is perfect for a budget traveler. Shout out to the staff who are always excited... More

Very well placed, by Chinatown and the Central Market. Handy for all forms of public transport. It's clean and the security is good (high up on our list). The staff are very helpful. Breakfast is a help yourself affair to toast and tea or coffee. (The drinks are available throughout the day and are free.) The ac is a weird... More

Arrived late this evening with no problems. At half past eleven at night we had someone repeatedly knocking on our door, asking us what we were 'burning' in the room. I told them nothing. My boyfriend had recently had a shower and had sprayed some deodorant. I told them we were trying to sleep and closed the door, or at... More
