          Fair price for a budget hotel”

          - Not bad, since I can fall asleep easily and deeply at night. The bed is superb! - Toilet bowl sitting cap loose making annoying during poop. - Shower and sink is in good condition. - Don’t have makeup table making difficult to prepare yourself. Need to use toilet.

          Terrible Hotel. Avoid at all costs!”

          Close to Monorail

          Although the hotel is close to the Monorail we had a terrible stay at Smile Boutique Hotel. Our Room 303 was riddled with roaches! Staff are unhelpful and didn't seem concerned or surprised at the issue! We changed rooms three times, but all the rooms were riddled with roaches. They were in the bathroom, and crawling on the bedside tables, floors and windows. It doesn't seem like the cleaners really attempt to clean the place. It was shocking! We ended up staying one night and checked out immediately the next morning We were charged for one nights stay and the cancellation fee, but we were willing to sacrifice those costs rather than stay at Smile Boutique. Chow Kit area is also not very safe. Don't take the risk, book 4/5 star hotels when you stay in KL!!

          clean, fast wifi, location at city centre (might be a con for certain people)

          had a short stay at this hotel and basically i feel is an adequate hotel suitable for those who are budget conscious but the size of the room is small. Cleanliness however was pretty good. It is located at the middle of kl but located next to busy hospital and you might be awaken by the sounds of ambulance passing by.

          nice little budget hotel”

          clean and comfy rooms

          It's in very boring neighborhood, but 2min from a monorail station, and from there it's not many minutes before you are in the middle of the action. The rooms are small and simple, but clean and comfy. All in all we were happy. But if I ever go back I think I will look for something in the Bukit Bintang area, as that is where we ended up spending most of our time.

          the gem of chow kit”

          good rooms, helpful staffs

          my wife and myself travelled with 9 friends and a small child, and for most of them the trip was their first time ever setting foot on kuala lumpur (malaysia). we were pleased to find out that this hotel is only steps away from the chow kit train station, and a few blocks on the opposite end is another train station (PWTC) and we were even more pleased with the we were greeted and helped by the hotel's receptionist for the duration of our stay at the hotel. she also helped us plan our trip by providing information about which train station we should go on and off for specific destinations. the rooms of the hotel are not big, but are clean and has air conditioning and hot water in the showers. the flat screen tv was a nice addition to the room. and if you need to access the internet, you can do it inside the comfort of your own room using the hotel's wifi connection.

          Clean and tidy in the hotel room

          The hotel is a bit small but suitable for short stay or simple business stopover. Convenience stores are available nearby and local food stores and mini-markets are also available. The hotel staff are quite friendly and always with smiling faces. I am sure you would like this hotel when you make your decision.

          As above. The hotel is great, with great condition of room. The only cons are the room is small and no cupboard. Still okay for travelers who only need a room to sleep. Not recommended for couple or family, hardly can walk in the room. For those who don't mind with small room, this hotel is the best choice in its range.

          Very cheap and clean with cheerful decor in each room within a stones throw of the monorail.

          Staff very friendly. Location, though not ideal in that it is quite far out, this really was not a problem as the monorail station is a stones throw from the hotel. It takes approx. 20mins to sentral station - It is very close, however, to the bus stop for bath caves. The room was perfectly adequate, maybe the bathroom a tight squeeze, but for the price, it is incredible value to stay in this beautiful capital city. .

          Using the TUNE chain theme, and about the same price but with no charge for the add-ons, Smile has tiny rooms but with a very comfortable queen bed, new quality fixtures, toiletries, large LCD tv, good shower, quiet air-con - all fine for one night. As with TUNE, impossible to unpack and barely able to open a suitcase. It is very close to the monorail stop at Chow Kit, and one stop away (Titiwangsa) from Pekililing bus station, to catch local buses to Taman Negara National Park.
