The guest house is a little way along Jalan Rembia on the left by the towing sign. It was supposed to be 90 ringgit for 2 nights but with extra charges, cost 116 ringgit. The room was fairly small. No window. Large bed, air conditioning, TV, basic toilet and shower. It would be OK for someone on a tight budget...

Had to move to another hotel because it was so awful. Did not get any refund anymore even if I only stayed for 30 mins. Yes, thats how awful it was and I think getting out of that "house" was the best thing I did in KL.

Stayed in this guesthouse for 6 nights. The environment was close as it was close to the "Clubbing area" in Bukit Bintang. For me as a mall lover, it was close to the Pavilion Mall and Farenheit 88 mall. Great food can be found in the area with varieties of cuisines. The room was OK for me. It had an...

I was sent to this place from another business who messed up my booking, (Royal Park Lodge) that's a whole different story, however unfortunately it adds to my dissatisfaction. The guesthouse is in a good location, i was quite happy hanging around the local area for a couple of days, plenty of good food and places to have a drink...

If you are a backpacker traveler, checkmate is a right place for your accommodation. Instead, you can expect too much for the property, the room & bathroom is too small, TV channel didn't work properly, simple breakfast (toast, coffee & tea). The location is nearby Jl. Alor (which there are lots of street food) and Bukit Bintang Street. Those 2...

Okay, I went to KL for short trip in the mid of Dec. My friend helped me book this Guest House (GH) and even paid it for me. So, for the price, you can check at Booking.com. This guest house is really 3-5 minutes walk to Alor Street, if you're really looking for food street at Alor. It's easy access...
