  • The place is such a steal for the price - strategic location, and lovely spacious room with private bathroom and all comfort available. The building, while only a few minutes away from Changkat Bukit Bintang’s nightlife strip, is tucked in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. I even had the luxury waking up to the sound of birds chirping! As for the host, Alan is great, respectful, and accommodating. He took the time out to pick me up at the city centre, drove me around the city, and even brought me to a Malaysian vegetarian food shop/restaurant for late lunch on my first day at KL. All in all, I had a very pleasant stay and highly recommend the place and the host.

  • Great location and very clean apartment! We arrived in KL very late at night, but Alan still picked us up,drove us around and gave the tips about the city and food. It was a pleasant conversation! Highly recommended!

  • Alan is really a fantastic host. It was a pleasure to communicate with Alan when I needed to decide where to stay in KL, because he replied always promptly and very cooperative. Alan offered a free pick up from KL Central and it was a great experience, because I've got not only a pick up but a comprehensive city tour and l learnt a lot about Malsysia during that trip.
    Location of Alan's flat exceeds my expectations. Everything is on a walking distance, nice restaurants around and not too many construction sites despite of another places in KL.
    Flat is very clean, comfortable with free water coffee and super fast WiFi internet (20MB/sec both directions). Don't forget to use a swimming pool in hot evenings! Though I booked it as a separate room, the feeling is that I stayed in a private house, because the common area is very spacious and there is a lot of space for every guest.
    By occasion I saw some other AirBnB properties in KL offered at higher price and have to admit, that Alan's place is the most competitive.

  • Only positive things to say. Alan is friendly and gracious, helpful and reachable. With several apartments, he was able to arrange for a more extended stay on short notice. The rooms themselves are clean and simply furnished, with A/C and bottled water available. The location almost literally could not be improved -- just a half-block to the restaurants and bars of Changkat Bukit Bintang, another 2 blocks to the street vendors and dining of Jalan Alor, another 2 to the convenient public transport system, another 2 to some of the nicest malls anywhere. In the other direction, the KL tower, with excellent views of the city, is a short walk away. There's a small, cold pool, very refreshing after the heat of KL. You can't go wrong for either an overnight or extended stay...

  • Everything went good. Nice and big room. Very comfortable. Didn't get to use the pool but definitely a bonus

  • Alan is a great host and a nice chat. On booking he gave us detailed information on how to proceed from the airport to town, When we arrived he picked us up at KL Sentral, and drove us around a bit for a quick orientation tour before taking us to the apartment.

    The apartment is located in the golden triangle, so it's close to the action (but it's in a quiet lane), with many choices for dining/drinking including hawker food (Jalan Alor is a mere 2 minute walk). There also are several shopping centres around (visit Low Yat for technology, laptops, smartphones and cameras!). To explore further, you can take the free bus (the stop is really close by) and the monorail.

    The apartment itself is nicely decorated, quiet and fully functional, and is highly recommended.

    Just a last note about KL:
    Unfortunately our stay in KL turned bad after our camera bag with our professional camera equipment was stolen at the shopping centre at the Petronas Towers (KLCC) and it seems that pickpockets and bag snatchers are operating undisturbed within shopping centres, despite the many security offices on the various floors. So keep your belongings with you (I mean ON YOU!) at all times.

  • tl;dr Good location, basic room with attached bathroom. However, host has very bad communication skills!!!

    I contacted the host before I arrived by texting him and asking him how to get to his place from KL Sentral and also just letting him know that I was coming. He didn't respond. I texted again the day of and no reply, I called and nobody picks up. Only when I texted again, he wrote back saying that he's not in, but the security guard will give me the keys.

    Then, the day of my departure, he texts me to tell me that he will come to the apartment and drive me to KL Sentral, which was very nice of him. We agreed that he'd come at a certain time. So I wait for him at the specified time at the apartment. He doesn't show up. I text him, but no reply from him. After 15min, I text him again, but no reply again. So after 30 min I text him that I will take a taxi, since he is not showing up. Until today, he did not respond to any of my texts that day!!! I almost missed my flight because I had to wait for him and he wouldn't communicate with me! I am really disappointed and am saddened that Airbnb has this kind of hosts. I'd rather stay at a comparable hotel next time!

  • Bukit Bintang is a great location for a tourist & Alan is the perfect host. He picked me up from KL Sentral & gave me a short orientation tour on the way to the apartment. The apt is spacious & nicely furnished & the other guests were travelers who shared helpful info about where to go & what to do nearby. Public transport is all close by although always crowded.
    Alan helped organize my trip to Penang & drove me to the coach departure lounge on the morning of my departure. Such a gentleman!

  • Location could not have been better for what we wanted from Kuala Lumpur - which was great food, great drinks and great atmosphere. Loved the apartment and was very well equipped and spotless. Walking distance to all attractions like klcc, petronas towers and all main shopping areas. Security very friendly and couldn't do enough to help.

  • Great experience staying in one of Alan's rooms in a shared flat. Clean, very comfortable, a/c, good wifi, and bottled drinking water to boot! Got a nice tour of the neighborhood from Alan himself after he picked me up from Sentral. He made it all very easy. Can't wait to get back to KL. I'm getting hungry right now thinking about that bak kut teh. Thanks, Alan!
