My studio apartment is just 10 minutes walk to the central hub of Bukit Bintang and a similar distance in the opposite direction to China Town.
The apartment boasts free WiFi, a laundry with automatic washing machine, kitchen, bathroom (with double shower), and a queen size bed. Also supplied is a hair dry, iron and ironing board.
There is a ceiling fan in the lounge/TV area and the whole apartment also has remote operated Air Conditioning.
Other inclusions for your comfort are fresh bed linen, four pillows and a bolster as well as two fluffy white towels and a selection of shampoos and shower gels.
There is cooking in the fully stocked kitchen however light meals may be prepared in the microwave oven and a pop-up toaster is supplied as well as an electric water jug for making tea and coffee. For those who don't want the bother of preparing meals, an onsite snack bar is available and they will happily deliver to your apartment. There are also numerous restaurants and fast food outlets all within easy walking distance - Jalan Alor is 5 minutes away!
The building has a rooftop pool area where you can relax and soak up the sun as well as a gym, men's and ladies' saunas and a games room.
I also live in the building so I'm always on hand to help or advise you on booking trips or to offer guidance on how to move around the city with ease.
Kuala Lumpur Is a safe city , non the less, the building does boast 24 hour manned security and CCTV surveillance for your peace of mind. Access to all floors is via security swipe-card only.

I look forward to meeting you and to making your stay in KL an enjoyable experience. Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries you may have.
I stayed in one of Nihad's apartment for four nights. I met her only once in passing but was well taken care of by one of her team members named Mustafa. The studio apartment looks as it does in photos and was very clean. There were towels when I arrived, and basic household stuff like an iron, plates and cutlery, and a washer for clothes. My only issue was the fact that the apartment is located by some train tracks. It was distracting at first but you kinda get used to it. The neighbourhood was very residential but was walking distance to a train station and Bukit Bintang. Taxis were also easy to come by, which was a plus.
Making the booking was quite straightforward with response within 36 hours. Nihad was very helpful regarding information on how to get to the property from the airport. Using the prepaid taxi was excellent. We were met at the entrance after security rang Nihad. The appartment is quite spacious & comfortable. Wifi worked well & there was the added bonus of a washing machine. The kitchen equipment was lacking however with only an odd selection of spoons & forks - no knives & no toaster. There is noise from the nearby train line & the air conditioning unit- but it's nice & cool!
The rooftop pool was good & we used the small gym on the top floor. Security was very tight with the key fob needed to activate the lifts & exit the main building.
We were able to walk to many local sights as Bukit Bintang is a 5 minute walk and the Metro station is also only 5 minutes walk away. After a 10 minute walk to the Pavilion Shopping Mall it's possible to connect to the covered walkways to the KLCC ( Patronas Towers) a total walk of around 25 minutes.
As other reviewers have mentioned, it would have been really helpful to have a few maps for reference as it does take a long time to get your bearings in this city. It's also very difficult to get to the main tourist office. We had a little difficulty contacting Nihad to arrange where to leave the key for the appartment as we leaving early in the morning. It resulted in a slightly delayed departure waiting for the security guard to contact someone. We appreciated the guards dilemma as he needed to know that all was correct for our departure.
Nihad's apartment is very cute, spacious and tastefully appointed. It is also a five minute walk to the monorail, which makes it very easy to get around, and yet the neighborhood is pretty quiet. The building has a little convenience store for necessities, a send-out laundry counter (although the apartment has a washing machine, so I did not send my things out), as well as a cafe/snack bar that makes some pretty good food--they will also deliver it to your door! The pool and gym are nice, too, especially after roaming the city in that KL heat! Nihad herself is very sweet and helpful, and will make sure you are comfortable. I would definitely rent from her again!
I booked for 1 day but actually stayed for about 12hrs. I liked the room very much. Very clean and stratrgically located. We were greeted by Mohamed and he was very accomodating.
So glad I used Airbnb to book a room for our trip.
Nihad is a good host. The room is perfect! Good for a family of 3 or a couple!
Nihad is a very good host. She was very kind to allow us early check in to the room. She gave us directions to some nearby shopping places in KL.
The neighbourhood felt more local and was only a short walk to the hustle and bustle of Bukit Bintang and Jalan Alor. The building was up to standards and the staff working there were friendly.
The apartment did not have everything listed (hair dryer, ironing board, or toaster) but it did have an iron. However, the staff and Nihad's team react to whatever you need with no problem.
I enjoyed my stay there as it was very comfortable and had a great view. Nihad was welcoming, smiling, and always laughing--great personality, which made my initial arrival great.
This is a good spot to stay at if you want that homely feeling--close to everything--give it a shot!!
It's a very convenient location. If you enjoy walking, China town and most of sightseeing are all walking distance about 20-30mins. :)
Огромное спасибо за теплый и дружественный прием! Nihad, прекрасный хозяин и человек. Получили огромное удовольствие от общения и проживания у Nihad. Она помогла решить все наши вопросы, касающиеся Малайзии. Апартаменты превосходны и находятся в удобном месте, для пешеходных прогулок по городу. А также вблизи транспортного узла.
Огромное спасибо, Nihad!!!

Many thanks for the warm and friendly welcome! Nihad, lovely host and guests. Had a great pleasure to communicate and stay in Nihad. She helped solve all of our questions regarding Malaysia. The apartments are excellent and are in a convenient location for walking around the city. Also near the transport hub.
Thank you so much, Nihad!!!
