    Home away from home”

    Pro: Friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness is maintained all throughout my staff, quiet Cons: Situated in a quite far area from LRT station although walkable (5 minutes to LRT Bangsar station). Suggestion: It’s best if there is a signage that says “Matahari Residence” as Grab drivers as well as first time travelers cant easily identify it. Although house number is indicated at the gate but if at night, you can miss it

    Cosy home from home”

    We were looking for somewhere close to a friend and the Matahari Residence was perfectly placed and priced well. Other than the fact that it is not easily identifiable from the road so taxi drivers struggle to find it, the accommodation is perfect (well ok not perfect but even Marina Bay Sands is not perfect!). Clean and tidy, we were welcomed and shown the facilities (kitchen, fridge etc.) then to our room. If you don't expect the Ritz at B&B prices then this is a GREAT place to stay in KL, easy walking distance to the nearest Metro station so easy to get about, local food vendors and of course the obligatory 7/11 nearby for all your needs.

    Just a one night stay, chosen for location, which was 20 min walk from KL Sentral, in quiet neighbourhood. New place, tidy facilities, clean, quiet, nice open bathroom, air con. Liked it, and just a short walk downhill to places to eat, and can use LRT to get to Sentral for airport train, or taxi.

    I have stayed in more than 100 hotels, cottages in Malaysia. This is my first guest house. The manager is very friendly. There are also many rooms. Reception and kitchen can be used freely. I shopped at a nearby shopping mall and enjoyed Japanese food. The meal you eat is the best. DD Thank you! Everyone was gentle and enjoyable time.

    Great stay”

    This place was a real bargain! I once stayed at a hotel at China town before with similar budget and remember the room did not even have a window and felt filthy. This time, staying at this place was very pleasant. It's located one train stop from KL Sentral(plus 10 mins walk) and in a very quiet region. Room itself was very clean and the owner was helpful.

    My son and I stayed two nights while on vacation in KL. It was like staying in someone's house. Very well decorated, and all the comforts of home. A little far from KL Sentral, more of a residential neighborhood, but plenty of restaurants near by.

    I doubted before I arrive as I'm a very careful person. But I was wrong.... it was such a comfy stay. The place was clean and had a very good night sleep. Felt safe and Felt like home. Wanted to stay for another night but unfortunately I had to change my mind due to personal reasons. The owner was nice and friendly. Worth the price staying as well. Cheers :)

    A peaceful accommodation in the smack of the city”

    This is one of KL's best hidden gems. The location is really strategic yet we don't feel like we are in KL as Matahari is tucked in a quiet corner of the city. The hospitality is great it almost feels like we are staying with a relative who respects privacy. If you have your car with you, you need not worry about safety too as there's ample parking. Strongly recommended!

    I am so glad to have come across Pat and her lovely family. Incredible home stay in a lovely neighbourhood away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet a very short walk from the LRT. It's close distance to KL Sentral station is a great plus point for connectivity to the airport. My bag was stolen the day I landed in KL and if not for these people effortlessly helping me, I would have been a mess. Thank you so much!

    It's like home! Only bigger..”

    This place is a homestay, run by a sweet couple, very welcoming, and were very happy to talk to me explaining how the place came about and so on. Overall is excellent, just remember to close all the windows as vegetation outside is encouraging mozzies to come around. Room is reasonably sized, decent amenity although if there were TV or wireless internet it would have been brilliant (or maybe more expensive rooms had them, I don't know), but hey the price is keen for the location, and if you are driving like we were, they lend the remote for parking in the garage.

    I was surprised from the beginning till the checkout, to be honest. This looks like a family house where you come to see your parents rather than a Guesthouse. Best service (Ana - thumbs up!), very comfortable sleep, friendly atmosphere - I will definitely come back and stay there next time I'm in KL.

    This place is really nice. The home is beautiful, the staff are friendly. It's a little tucked away in a residential neighborhood though so to get to most places you either have a bit of a walk or you need to take grab/uber most places. So it's not that convenient. But it's comfortable and the internet is fast.

    We liked the room. Annacwas extremely helpful. It was great to chat with Syed and his wife. The biggest problem we had was the bugs. There were a lot of ants in the bathroom and we even saw a cockroach. Anna helped us with spraying and cleaning the area. We were only there one night but were disappointed that no compensation was offered.

    We were welcomed by friendly and generous host when we reached the place. It's more to a homestay concept where the host just lived in the house as well. They have rabbits and cat, so need to beware when you parked your car inside the house. The accommodation is located in a village, environment is quiet and cozy. It is suitable for family as they have shared dining place, living room with tv and couch and other furniture which makes you feel like home. Would stay again in the future.

The room is spacious for staying. Not close to the metro, I take Grab or Uber throughout my trip, cost is not too much. Mrs Pat gave really good suggestions for my trip around the city.
