      If not because of this hotel location located very close to LRT track, I would recommend this hotel to many. I just cannot sleep at night because it is super noisy and irritating! LRT come and go until late night.

      Near the lrt station and walking distance from petaling street”

      The staff are so friendly and accommodating. The room is nice especially the jacuzzi. I enjoyed it. It’s so relaxing. But, I wish there’s a hair dryer available in the bathroom and since the room is located near the lrt ; you can hear the train and some noises from the outside. Thus, the wifi is a bit weak in my room’s location but it’s fine I have 4g. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.

      your prices are now on the upper side if weighted on the place and the exclusiveness of the rooms, thus why my ideal choice has not been here for this month, best to research the nearest competitions and throw in some sweet deals for regular guests.

      Would you recommend Arenaa Mountbatten Boutique Hotel to a friend?”

      To answer the above, I have been sharing my previous pleasant experiences to many colleagues and friends hoping that they will enjoy a comfortable and pleasant stay if they choose to visit your establishment. Definitely hope that there will be consistency in providing decent service to all your guests, as we would hate to hear otherwise from anyone we may recommend your hotel to.

      Jacuzzi, great Staff and of course the shower!

      Booked for a 3 days 2 nights stay here. For the last night, I ended up partying and came back very late and I eventually woke up at 1.15 pm. Thanks to the great staffs which gave me grace time to check out by 2.30 pm else, i'll be charged. Really recommend this hotel for cheap stay in Kuala Lumpur yet give you the best. Its what you would expect from a 3 star hotel. The location was prefect. Nearby to night markets like Chinatown, Masjid India and nearby to Central Market and Pudu too! Only thing was the walls were not painted neatly and The lighting of the room is not as picture posted.

      great location as it is near LRT, Petaling street and church.

      The hotel location is just a walking distance to Petaling street, lrt, catholic church and convenient store. The other side of the coin would be the water heater not functioning well and the aircond is not that cold. I'm glad that they do provide hair dryer in the drawer tho.

      Location, Design, Clean

      Everything about Arenaa was great. It has its own nice diner, it's just a short walk away from the LRT, its surrounded by food establishments and all sorts of shopping centers. The only problem we had though was the wifi connection. It expires every two hours and you need to go down to the reception to ask for new user logins.

      From outside looks ugly but i knew this hotel is new hotel and its a boutique hotel. So i give it a try. The lobby too small (who care coz im not sleep at the lobby). Once i open the room door "WOW!!!!!" The room was superb. I love the design. Even though the room was small but how they create the room design was THUMB UP. Great job. Very clean. The bed very comfortable. They have rain shower also. Still have a space for me to put my bag. I love the room so much. Cheap and fantastic. Truely Boutique Hotel in kl and cheap.

      a touch of luxury at a budget price

      arrived from the airport at 2am and hotel was 2 minute walk and desk staff were awake and functional. i gained sole use of what should have been a shared room, with 2 twin beds, very close to one another and 2 bunkbeds in another room, which would have offered some privacy- the room was spacious and clean and the shower stalls, there were 3 were very designer, but glass doors, no locks-not sure I would have been comfortable if there had been other travellers in the room. The light above the bed could not be reached easily and I had to stand on the bed, maybe they were in position for a bunk bed. The TV was on the wall parellal to the wall above a bed, so not easily watched by all. Yes designer, but not designed well.

      the hotel is clean and comfortable and is very near the chinatown. on a few minutes walk you can also reach the metro station where you can go to areas or places of interest.the only downside is that if you stay in a family room with bunk beds they do not provide you with the basic amenities like towels and water heaters
