              Great Value for Bukit Bintang”

              If you are looking for affordable accommodations in an exciting part of town, Check Mate should be the near the type of your list. I was looking for a place that was close to the action, where I could sleep in peace, and that wouldn't break the bank. Check Mate was definitely the place to go. Facilities left something to be desired, but I was not disappointed at that price. The shower flips from cold to hot to cold, so watch out. The room is the air was a bit stuffy even with the air con, but you can always go outside. But if you are looking for a decent place to stay in Bukit Bintang for a budget price, I recommend this place for sure.

              What you pay for. The place is simple, with hot shower and wifi and a/c. Staff is very friendly! 😀 very stratigic location, near 2 monorail stations, near Jalan Alor (where the good food is), near the nightlife. Near Berjaya Time Square as well! Drop off if you're coming from SG.

              I know i paid for a cheap room and didn't expect too much but my experience was a total disaster! I cancelled the rest of my booking, good thing agoda has this free cancellation policy. Pros - location is walking distance to restaurants and shops. Cons: - cleanliness is absolutely thumbs down! I even bought a pair of slippers nearby coz i can't imagine myself walking barefoot on their dirty floor - toilet has molds everywhere, hairs on the drain hole, stains on seat cover, broken toilet seat, clogged toilet seat. - no towels or toiletries. I booked a room for 2, but the arrogant person from the front desk gave me like a piece of rag as towel which is totally worn out - sockets not functional - no a/c remote - no tv remote; you need to manually check for channel - you can hear people outside - stains on bedsheets - no double lock inside, i feel unsafe - cobwebs and mosquitoes flying - no hot water in the shower - worn out blanket

              The only good points for thet hotel is perfect location and cheap price. However standard is awful. Mold on the walls. Extremely small stinky room. For similar price maybe 5RM/night more (price of one hamburger) you can find much better place to sleep.

              It was pleasant, and I enjoyed my stay. I hope the plumbing problem in my toilet will be solved soon. All in all, it's a good value for money and I will likely stay here again in future. Had no time to sample the breakfast during my stay.

              Booked and paid for 2 nights but checked out after the first night. Premise has a dark and creepy setting from the reception hall to the stairs to the corridor to the room. Toilet wall has moss and shower head is too old to be functioning properly. Didn't see any other backpackers staying here. Picked the wrong stay.

              Poor Experience Ever at Bukit Bintang Area”

              The inn was really horrible. The room is not clean at all. I doubt if the staff did clean the room. The room full so smell and the toilet even more horrible. One star is still overrated for them. I had stay different inn in Bukit Bintang Area, but this is really a worst and dissapointed experience. I hope agoda could actually to reconsider does it appropriate to continue to cooperate with Check Mate Guest House. I can't stand for it, starting the second day I move to another inn nearby. Spent again just to get a better environment.
