Best choice to stay”

Place, Cleanliness, Value of Money

It was my first solo traveling to other country and fortunately i choose the best place to stay. Marquee Guesthouse located next to central market, pasar seni and near to Petaling Street. It is also near the bus and LRT station, which is the advantage to explore KL. The room was clean and tidy, the bathroom and toilet was the same. Breakfast is basic with bread and jam, unlimited coffee and tea. I was stay for three days and would love to stay there again when I visit Kuala Lumpur.

Worth to stay, budget price”

I stayed in Marquee Guest Houzz for a night. Excellent location since close to Central Market (Pasar Seni), Petaling Street and walking distance to Merdeka Square and Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad. Really close to Kuala Lumpur Komuter Station and Pasar Seni LRT station where can explore whole KL with LRT and komuter... Fast and stable wifi connection where is more than 40 Mbps all the time... Simple breakfast provided with bread, butter and jam... Nice and comfortable room, clean bathroom make me feel comfortable during my stay...I will choose Marquee Guest Houzz as my first choice accommodation in my next visit to KL.

Great hostel”

Pros: - Central location, great transport connections, shopping, food within 200 meters. Easy to find. - Lovely staff, let us check in early free of charge! Also staff remembered me from my stay 2 years ago! :) - Clean, no bad smells or bugs (like other hostels in the same price range in KL), bathrooms always clean too. - Comfortable bed. Air con worked great, could switch it on and off for the perfect temperature in our private room. - Balcony for smoking, eating, meeting fellow travellers etc. With fridge, kitchenware, microwave provided. All clean and comfortable. - Locks made us feel safe, no randoms allowed in. - Fast, secure internet!! Great basic hostel, with everything you need, clean, easy to get to, good staff. Not super fancy or anything, but affordable and great for backpackers or travellers who don't need luxury to be happy :) Cons: - The fan in our room was a bit loud, and people stomped around in the mornings (also loud).

Good guesthouse in the heart of KL”

Location, room comforts, helpful staff

This is a decent place to stay if you're looking to be in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The rooms were fine but I found the floors to be really loud, so when people walked past our rooms to/from the bathrooms, it sounded like loud constant stomping. I also personally found the lights everywhere to be too dim for my liking. In general, this is a decent place to stay.

The hostel is really close to station, and any common place like Gallery Kuala Lumpur. It's so easy to get anything when I stay there because it's located in Centrak=l Market. The receptionist is also very friendly and helpful. But for cleanliness is acceptable maybe cause the housekeeper not on duty. Overall, it was really pleasant stay for 2 nights for me.

Price, Wifi, Location

This was a comfortable place to stay. I was only there for two nights, but they were great. Air conditioning works well, WiFi speed is adequate, and the location is on Kasturi Walk next to a convenience store, many street vendors, and the Central Market in Chinatown. Staff are very nice, let me in at 1:30 am for arrival, and let me keep my bags in a locker after check-out while I still explored the town. Price was under US$6 per night, and value was great! Apparently there is free breakfast as well, though I did not try it.

Average stay”

My friend and I stayed in a double bed room. It was a pretty bare/no frills type of room - no windows, just a bed and a tiny nightstand. Outlets need adapters. Location was close to the train and right on a busy market street so I felt safe going in and out at night time. A couple of blocks from the Petaling Street Market. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the creaking floorboards get quite loud. It was overall fine for the low price we paid, but I was annoyed that the front desk gave us the wrong info about the bus terminal. We were told that we could just show up at the terminal the day of and get a ticket to Penang. We arrived at the terminal at 2pm and turns out all the buses to Penang were sold out until 11pm.. so we were stuck at the terminal waiting for 9 hours. It was a Friday, so maybe the buses booked faster than usual. Other than the misleading bus terminal info, the front desk was helpful with other activities we asked about.
