    Close to embassies, gorgeous place”

    Pro: great location for embassy business, but also fairly close to downtown area. Beautiful room with a kitchen downstairs you can use, balcony, patio... Con: we were unlucky and the pool was under construction. Good reason, as they were fixing the tiles to prevent injury. Just bad timing! Would be EVEN BETTER with the pool, of course!

    Sets in a quite area of the Ampang hilir and close to the city centre ”

    Stayed there as a pre-stay before another stay with a bigger group for a function in this coming near future. The guesthouse is a beautiful townhouse, comfy and offers quiet ambience, spacious room. We had the premier room, comfy. You could also book the whole townhouse for family gathering and it would be super comfy and relaxing.

    Excellent location to do embassy errands”

    Friendly staff and guards, room is quiet and peaceful, the location was right smack in the embassy area. For those who have errands at the US embassy it was only a 15-minute walk from the guesthouse. The only thing that could be improved is the Internet speed. I preferred using my mobile data to do light work on my laptop (Word doc and Google).

    Had a very pleasant stay”

    Easy to reach, super friendly and pool!

    It was very easy to reach this place (low houses, surrounding a pool), even by MRT (Ampang Park) and then local bus (or any bus from KLCC MRT down Ampang road), plus 5min walk. Very friendly and helpful staff. Freshly prepared breakfast and great pool. I may have been a bit lucky, as there were very few other guests. Room and (possibly shared) bathroom were fine.

    JUST GO. Perfect place”

    Just perfect and you should go! You'll love it!! It started with perfect email and whatsapp communication. Fast responds, polite and perfect English. As I arrived I had a warm welcome, they organized it well. Information, offered a drink, showed me the room and gave me a print with the wifi password and all the information you need. For questions, just go to the reception and they love to help. It's a small set up guesthouse with a huge pool in a quiet area. You can feel safe as there's a gate around it and 24/7 friendly guards. Inside you'll feel relaxed. The room was just fantastic! It has a balcony (for the smokers: you are allowed to smoke there), Pool or Petronas tower view. Bed is very comfy and lots of pillows, sheets and duvet. You need it if you use the AC. The bathroom is clean, spacious and with all toiletries (shampoo, bathsoap, toothbrush, showercap, soap, razor). Fresh towels every day. Daily cleaning if you prefer. 2 huge closets, small tables and electric kettle with coffee and tea. The building has a nice (2 stories) set up around the pool. Breakfast (really good!) is at the balcony on the first floor in 'your house'. It seems like small apartments attached which makes the building. So you'll have a fully equipped kitchen (really everything is there!) on the ground floor, first floor is a living room. There are 4 rooms per house. I had a lot of privacy. Wifi is in the room :-) So just sit back and relax at your balcony and enjoy! Like in a 5 min walk there are bars, restaurants and convenient stores. Also the busstop which takes you to the city centre in 5 min (1 RT). So don't be affraid you're to far away. It's fast and easy to go to the centre and you'll enjoy the neighbourhood! Trust me on this one :-) Airport is a 45 min drive away. Take a GRAB-car (the way to move around in Malaysia) and will cost you 73 RT (including toll) Esther is very hospitable and will make your stay unforgettable. Cheers to Nora (brought me to Chinatown) and Mar

    This place is great. Went there with my family of 4 adults and 1 child. Good location. Safe place since they are gated with security 24/7. Can park 2 cars in front of the house. The reception guy Esther was very helpful and friendly. Initially the water supply was very slow then I whatsapp Esther telling him the problem. In 5 minutes, the water problem solved. The house was also very clean. Will surely stayed here again!

    I usually only like 5* hotels. This place was amazing! Staff were so kind, the place was impeccably clean and I would definitely go back. Breakfast was wonderful and at any time we wanted it, I have never had so many tv channels, and the pool was beautiful with dun all day. And I loved the area, just close enough to jog to Klcc park. I can't recommend it enough and I'm the most fussy person you could meet!

    The place is just 5 mins away by taxi. Best is try uber or grab for going to klcc. By walk will be bit long. Place is calm, away from hustle bustle of city. In a prime location surrounded by embassador residencies. Means safe as well. Hosts are pretty coorerative. Visiting again in Oct.16 with family.

    nice change from a hotel”

    the staff are friendly and there is more space than you get in a hotel in the sense that you get to use a separate floor for tv and eating on a terrace. the pool is well kept. the location is quite central but has a less urban feel as the neighbourhood is a mix of condos, embassies and some old bungalows. some visitors may feel the locale may lacks amenities but klcc is close by taxi or uber.

    It met my basic needs: cheap and within a stone's throw of the US embassy. The place & staff went a step further and added "Friendly, accommodating, clean" to the list. I'd be sure to recommend this place to anybody who needs to stay near KLCC for a bargain.
