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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

I didn't make this booking, so I didn't check any reviews before checking in. I should have! All the complaints on here are true and I want to add my share. My booking was made on Booking.com. I had a CONFIRMED room and rate. When checking in I was told it's weekend and the rates are higher. I was very... More

The room is really dirty, still hair on the floor and in the bathroom, dusty and smelly. The mattress is unbelievably uncomfortable, you can feel every single bedspring, also the pillows don't let you get some good sleep. The room is really small, you can't open the door completely and the only power point available is so high that you... More

A wellchosen name for a dreadful hotel. When we arrived we paid in cash. Afterwards they reported to booking that we didn't show up so they get the price of one night extra as cancelation! I just read in other reviews that they have pulled this trick on other people before. Apart from that, it is super dirty and service... More

The room was very dirty. The drain in the bathroom was broken so cockroaches were crawling out into the room. The men were talking all night at reception which you can hear very loudly in the room. After we stayed (I booked through booking.com) I received an email to say the guesthouse had said we hadn't stayed and wanted paying... More
