Rainforest Bed and Breakfast
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Walking distance to Jalan alor, Raja Chulan Monorail, groceries, and bars. They also serve breakfast that consists of bread, milk, butter, blueberry currant and strawberry jam, cocoa, coffee and bananas, all for self-service. Free internet, friendly staff and cozy ambient! Those are the good things we've experienced. However, they only have stairs. So, for tourist with lots of baggage, it'll be diffcult for them to go up the winding stairs.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st floors are newly improved than the 4th floors. Wifi internet is fast around ground...

The Rainforest B&B in KL, located in the gritty, "interesting" tourist district of Bukit Bintang, is hard to beat, in terms of value for money, and in terms of location. Oh, and in terms of service and friendliness. I've stayed there several times and each time I've been sad to leave. Possessing a soft, green ambience - a quasi forest type vibe with some ferns and greenery and stuff - it genuinely has that homely feel to it. There's a large common room, excellent for chilling out, tea/coffee/water, TV, Internet, etc. It's worth asking for the best rooms, which might be the ones on the corner of each of the three floors. It IS a backpacker hostel technically, but it presents, and delivers, as something much more, very very comfortable, well located, easy to get in and out of.... Love it!!

Room Tip: As mentioned.

Clean friendly good value b&b in a great location, minutes walk to monorail, LRT, food, drink and shops. Wifi accessible on ground & 1st floors but no reach to higher floors. 

Travelling solo, there is a lounge & balcony but I didn't find these to be the place to meet other travelers. 
Overall highly recommended though, I'd stay here again.

Really great location. Short walk to the monorail station and Jalan Alor/Bukit Bintang area. Staff is friendly. My room is in the 4th floor and the staircase doesn't have any rails. I booked for a 3 bed dorm but I got a 2 bed with no one to share it with (yay!). Rooms and the washroom were clean. Breakfast is simple. Just some toast, jam, cereals, oats and coffee. Overall, an OK experience.

Room Tip: Ask if there is an available on the first 2 floors especially if you have a lot if luggage with you.

stayed here twice already, it's location is the main come-on for me. just a few minutes walk from the shops /restaurants in bukit bintang area, and the raja chulan monorail station. felt safe to walk even at night. free breakfast (choice of cereals, toast bread and coffe/tea) was more than adequate to get you up and started, free use of pc internet at the lobby is another plus factor, along with helpful directions and attention we received from the reception area. the last time I was there, i arrived past midnight and only the secuirty guard was there who was probably briefed of my late arrival so he was already expecting me and gave my room key upon showing him my confirmation. also had to check out at 3am and again, their security guard was ever helpful to even get me a cab at that hour.

Rainforest Bed & Breakfast was perfect. It's cozy, clean, and complete. It's near the CBD. The service is warm. The best part about is it sits on an eclectic street with interesting shops. Great find indeed!

Rainforest B&B is situated in Bukit Bintang but in a quiet sub-street (during the day) - ideal location for going around in KL, very good food at proximity (Nagasari Curry House, SK Corner), close to Bukit Bintang bars and to the skytrain. Unfortunately, during the day the rooms are very noisy because of construction works around the hotel. The standard rooms are nicely done (wood sidings, mirrors, nice bed, storage space and OK bathroom) but have no windows and the inside is kind of dark because of the wood stain colors. At night time you may hear some music but it did not really bother me. Breakfast is free but not good, you better go to the mamak to have some real coffee and pancakes. The staff was also uninterested at best and failed to give me correct answers about taxi fares. It's good value for the money but I would stay to some place more friendly next time.
