“Great little place close to everything”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

The room was clean, non-smoking & with a private bathroom with shower. The staff (Raj & Edward) were friendly and helpful. We had a first-floor room that was close to the front garden with designated smoking area so some of the smoke came into the room as well as some of the noise. Granted it was a Saturday night and if we weren't so jet lagged from our North American flights, we would be out & about ourselves instead of sleeping early on a weekend night. After a bit of time, the people (other guests) outside left and it was super quiet.

The location was great as it was close to the monorail, bars & restaurants, 7-eleven, etc.

The guesthouse's useful directions came in handy when we took a taxi from the airport.

Overall, we had a pleasant stay & would return again in the future.

Convenient and quiet location in the heart of KL.
This really nice and modern guest-house has nice rooms and basic break-fast facilities available 24/7.
The staff is very friendly and helpful!
I don't know what else to say but apparently the review MUST be at least 200 characters long so let's see if this is good enough for them... yes it is!!!

A charming, clean, quiet and secure guesthouse in the big city! We felt really at home in KLwhile staying in a standard room at Sahabat!! The room was compact with a window opening on the atrium inside the building...the bathroom was also compact...but very clean, good a/c, kitchen area kept clean also, decoration minimalistic, a little zen, the outside terrasse was cute. The owner provide bread, butter, jam coffe,tea and hot chocolate for breakfast, there is a living room near reception to watch tv or relax....people must take off their shoes when entering guesthouse...they will help you with any questions you might have...guesthouse well situated in Bukit Bintang, nears bars, restos, monorail not far, shops...laundry...This little place grows on you! We liked it!

We found it very difficult to locate a hotel or guesthouse in KL for travellers on a budget but with fairly high hygiene standards so, finding Sahabat Guesthouse was great. It's quite centrally located - as central as you can get in KL though as the city is pretty huge - but we managed to walk to the towers, and find great places to eat without a problem with only 2 days to spend in the city.

The guesthouse is immaculately clean. We had booked standard rooms which were basic but nicely decorated. The bathroom which was a 'wet room' was also clean and basic.

There was a modest breakfast included which can be taken at the communal kitchenette area downstairs.

The staff were also very friendly and patient.

Overall we would recommend the place to any friends!

we booked our trip to Kula lumper few days ago. The city was absolutely large. The hotel itself located in the super location. It took us about some minutes to the China town, the shopping malls nearby. Our room decorated with modern facilities, so large and comfortable!!
