Good location
The room, location and staff
The hotel is conveniently located about 100 meters from a skytrain station near Chinatown. The room was comfortable with clean bed linen. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My only small concern for some travellers is that the rooms are only about 30 meters from the skytrain track, so therefore some noise from the trains. It didn't bother me though and I would stay there again. I have entered a score of 3 above for food but I wasn't aware of any food available. Also there wasn't a fridge or any complimentary water.

Strategic location but dirty and poorly maintained
Near to several attractions, near to public transport, friendly staff
The hotel was under renovation at the time we arrived. So, it make sense that everything will not in perfect shape. BUT I would say that with this level of maintenance, the hotel should be closed. The main stairway was under construction, they briefly close the area by hanging some black cloth there. We have a feeling of staying in construction site, not in a hotel. Our room is at the corner and next to our room is a storage room where hotel staffs keep bed sheets, toilet paper etc. They never close the door and all stuffs just lay around the corridor. We have to squeeze ourselves through the carts, garbage bin, and stack of bed sheet to enter the room. the curtain does not cover the entire window so no privacy at all. Worst of all, there was some cockroaches in our room (we found them crawling around twice). I do not understand how the hotel manager allow the hotel to remain open and accept guests like this. Half of the room does not have light bulbs, so it's always a very dark corner in our room. The sound of traffic is so loud in the night. The really good thing of this hotel is about its location. You can easily walk to the LRT station. A bus stop for free GoKL bus is also just around the corner. It's only ten minute walk from the Merdekasquare. The hotel staff is also friendly and can provide some useful information. Anyway, dirty room and poor maintenance are completely unacceptable. This is one of the worst hotel I have ever experienced. We will never go back there again.

My 2nd time in Arenaa Mountbatten Hotel!
Affordability, Comfort, Location
I also booked this hotel a year ago when my group of friends and I went to Kuala Lumpur. The service is still the same, the rooms are superb when you consider its price. Its location is great too since it's just a few minutes away by walking from Masjed Jamek station. Renovations are being done in its ground floor though so the welcome is quite scary. Nonetheless, our stay in the hotel was great! We'll stay in this hotel again if we come back to Kuala Lumpur.

Close to station.
near KL tower
Staff was okay. Room was alright although the TV had a lot of issues. The main problem I encountered here was the fact that they give you internet tickets that last for like an hour or 2 (can't remember how long). My friend and I had to get multiple tickets because we needed access to the internet.

It is nice stay
It is quite an eye catching to see Arena Mounbatten hotel near to the Masjid Jamek lrt. It is at least 5 minutes from lrt and convenient for travellers. Like many budget hotel that in the middle of the city and near to lrt/train station in KL, it is not convenient for travellers with car. There are no parking space provided nor there are nearby. We went to hotel in the middle of renovations of the lobby so the reception area reduce to a small space but luckily it went smoothly and we were greeted by friendly receptionist, I don't get his name, a chinese lad. Since the room I booked was having plumbing problem, he put us to Family suite room which really I don't mind at all. The room is perfect for family. The moment I entered, I was greeted by 2 sinks, 2 shower room and 1 toilet. For me personally, budget hotel, this is the best. There are 2 bunk beds and 2 single beds. 2 bunks beds has their own small room with air- conditioner and the 2 single beds with their own air -conditioner, which is important because of climate in KL. Thank god! Big plus plus from me! The other great thing about this room is the electric sockets/plugs. Each bed has their own electric plugs, so no need to argue who can charge phone/camera/ipads first and each of the bed has their own small reading light. Awesome. There are at least 4 safety box but I guess you need to ask the receptionist to reset it since every safety box is locked. It doesnt matter but it is practical that they have it. Do not expect to get toileteries not even a tissue box, so bring it your own. They provide towels so it is good since most budget hotel doesn't provide anything. TV was not working while I was there but it doesn't matter since my sis and I can entertain ourselves with our phones. The downside of this room is bed sheet, it is not clean but it is not that bad and it doesn't come with blanket so you need to bring that yourself. The room is quite dark. Overall it is not so bad

Poorly Maintained Hotel
Strategic Location, Close to Dataran Merdeka and etc, LRT Station just 5mins walk away
Honestly, the hotel's location is rather strategic. Dataran Merdeka is just 7mins walk away (convenient for SCKLMarathon) and with a LRT station just 5mins walk away. As for the room itself, it is very poorly maintained. We got roomwhich was supposed to be the "Premium Room", one step higher than the Deluxe Room. We were rather shocked by the condition of the room. 1. The room itself was very small. 2. Room's lighting was very poor/dark. 3. Curtains by the bed seemed dirty, which had spider web on them. 4. Toilet floor tiles seemed very dirty. 5. The shower had no hot water at all. 6. Hotel is situated right along/beside the LRT tracks. So you will hear the LRT pass by every time they do. 7. Hotel is situated right on Jalan Tun Perak main road. So you will hear cars and bikes zoom by when they do.
