Location is great. Rooms are small, but clean. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Owner is also very friendly and informative. She likes to spend time sitting outside with the guests, which i found its great! This place is also great place to meet other travelers. I always stay there when i travel alone.

Tropical Guesthouse has a great location and decent accomodations. The location is really spectacular - close to the monorail, the Pavilion, and lots of the best bars and restaurants in KL. There are tons of street food stalls around as well.

I was uninspired by the rooms, which are small and have one outlet - ours didn't work, which was very inconvenient. The blankets were square and not large enough to cover your whole body. Also, the walls in 207 had weird grease stains. However, the aircon was fully functional and there are lots of shops/pharmacies/bars nearby, which is good for when you want to party and then need to rehydrate (and maybe get some advil) the next morning.

The downstairs lounge is comfortable and internet is quite good. There are tables, couches, and some larger areas to sit as a group and meet fun people. You can play music, which is great except that it also plays upstairs so everyone has to listen to club music, disco, jazz, or whatever else is playing. The staff is very understanding if you want to turn the music off, but it's very annoying to have disco playing for 3 hours in the early morning... overall, this is a surprisingly social guesthouse and I liked the people I met there.

The staff is friendly and helped us get a taxi with another group to the airport at 3am for our early morning flight. This saved us time and money, and was great! Overall, I enjoyed this hostel although the rooms were not my favorite.

Room Tip: 207 has weird grease stains on the walls, is near the noisy street, and the outlet doesn't work...

Tropical guest house is the best guest house in town ever. The place where to meet people. Front desk staff friendly and the owner also friendly. Treat me as a friend and will do the best for the guest....

Location very close with the city and all the interesting location around.

Will coming back again to stay in this guest house.

Good location and cozy room. Very near to Kuala Lumpur Golden Triangle and a lot of food stalls around the guesthouse.
Kept me wait for the check in. Hope they can improve on that one. The sexy room is good, well decorated and clean but just near to the bathroom and store so there are some people making noise around at night. Overalls is good, I slept well due to to tired of shopping.

We stayed here after a terrible night sleep at Pondok Lodge around the corner. We looked at loads of places to stay and it was the best one by far. KL is quite expensive for accommodation in general and it was about £15 a night here. The room we stayed in was small but clean and the air con worked which is always a bonus when the nightime temperature is over 25 degrees!

The staff at the guesthouse were really nice and we ended up chatting to one of them and some other guests one evening. They gave us some useful information about Malaysia in general and where to go and what to see. We are glad we took their advice as the rest of our trip was fantastic. If you are on a budget and dont fancy Chinatown (the guesthouses looked a bit grotty to us) then this is a good place to stay. Good staff, excellent location in the golden triangle and the shared toilets/bathrooms are clean!!!!
