Small, clean guesthouse in Kuala Lumpur. Just a 10 minutes walk from the famous Petronas Towers.
The rooms are quite spacious, with new furniture, free WIFI, clean sheets and towels. The bathroom is quite small, in fact you're having a shower in the toilet ;-).
But it's sufficient, with a strong and warm radius .
The staff of the hotel is very friendly: they can give you a map of the town and lot of suggestions regarding transport etc. In the lobby you can find a TV, nice couches and some pc's with internet.
To get to Orange Pekoe Guesthouse, from the airport, we took the public bus. Price: only 8RM per person for an one hour drive. You can easily find the bus at the airport busstation in front of the airport at your left hand (if you're back is facing the airport).
The bus will drop you at the nearest busstop, in front of a shopping mall. From here you can walk to the free buses and catch one that brings you next to the guesthouse. Another option is to walk straight to the hotel (12-15 minutes) or to grab a taxi (ask for putting on the meter!! The price will be 5-10 RM. We got ripped off here by paying 20 RM for just a 5 minute drive). If you're not in for public transport, you could take a taxi straight from the airport (price: 70 RM).
The breakfast at Orange Pekoe is very simple. There's white bread, jam and some fruits. You can make your one meal and are supposed to do your own dishes..
We paid around 42 euro for a one night stay via Booking.com. There might be cheaper guesthouses in the neighbourhood, but we liked this budget-close to midrange- option.
