WHY SHOULD YOU STAY WITH US?
1.LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!
We are not near central KL - WE ARE CENTRAL KL! This unit is on a high floor with a bird's eye view of KL. We are a 2 minute walk to BUKIT BINTANG, and to pavilion mall, lot 10, fahrenheit mall, restaurants and bars on changkat and the raja chulan monorail stop. We’re a 10 minute walk to KLCC and KL tower. this saves you money on transport, time saved stuck in terrible KL traffic, and patience saved dealing with sometimes difficult cab drivers!
2. CLEAN, COSY UNITS WHICH FEEL LIKE HOME & FLEXI CHECK IN CHECK OUTS -
It is super important to us that we provide clean & cosy units to our guests and welcome you with little goodies and stuff. Also, if there are no guests the day you leave, stay all day! If you need to check in early, let us know; we will always try to accommodate you.
3.ALWAYS DO OUR BEST/ BE HONEST – we have taken guests to hospitals, driven them to other guest’s houses, baby-sat kids, looked for digs and dives, taken guests out with friends, taken 3 am calls for directions. We’re nowhere near perfect, but will always be honest, try our best to do it right, but keep it real with guests.
4.REALLY GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY – the five star Hotel Istana and Park Royal Service Suites are opposite us and 5x our price for the same location. We offer the same location, more space, greater units and a more unique experience. For example, the 360 degree view of kl from our rooftop is unmatched!
5. EXCELLENT WIFI CONNECTION WITHOUT ANY HASSLES - our number one frustration is fussy WIFI when we go anywhere. Therefore, we've made it a point to provide good WIFI w/out any hassles!

Apparently there were issues with the current arrangement however Shamza took care of everything upon arrival. Apartment was clean and well kept.
No complaints whatsoever. Great location, great value. What more can one ask for.
we come from china.the apartment is nice and tidy.everyting is ok.The best for us is the flexiable check time.if visit kula lumpur,i will book again.5 stars!
It was a 2 bedroom apartment with bathrooms for each room, air-conditioning in both rooms and the lounge/kitchen. It was a godsend after a day of hard shopping and eating in KL. It was very thoughtful of Shamza to leave the fan on our arrival, but the heat and humidity got to us and we needed the air conditioning. A phone call to Shmaza sorted it out (the switches were below the mirror near the front door, but an umbrella was blocking it so we did not see it.) Turning on the TV was a trial and error but we worked after pressing a few buttons. There were quite a few channels including cable.
Shamza had kindly left a small amount of tea and coffee and a few packets of snacks. We did not use the microwave or the stove. The fridge was useful and enough chinaware and cutlery for 4 persons. The shower pressure was a bit weak but it was not an issue for us. There were a few bottles of body scrub and I went out to buy one of them from Guardian Pharmacy because it was so nice.
There was a washing machine but no washing powder. It was useful for washing the towels.
There is a swimming pool, small gym and washing machines on the second floor. The pool was a haven after a hot and humid day.
The location is great. The free buses stop in front of the Istana Hotel but getting on it is a challenge as it seemed to be used mainly by local people. The LRT on Raja Chulan is slightly closer than the one at Bukit Bintang. It goes to KL Sentral and you can change to almost anywhere. There was no shortage of food and shopping nearby. Tips and instructions from Shmaza were very useful.
Only a few minor issues. There was a badly chipped mug and the tea towel could be replaced. Also the power point attached to the cable tv sparked each time we touched it.
I would not hesitate to stay at this place again.
Merci à Shamza pour ce remarquable accueil. Grâce à elle notre séjour à Kuala Lumpur a été fantastique. Appartement très bien placé, des explications simples et précises pour une personne parlant très peu anglais. Encore une fois merci et une excellente année à vous
Shamza's place was amazing, it's clean, comfortable as described. Near many local restaurants nearby yet quiet surrounding so can sleep well. Bars also nearby just 8mins walking, also to jalan alor famous food street and to bukit bintang area for around 12mins walking. Will surely recommend to friends and family. Thank you shamza!
We had a great experience during our stay at Shamza's place. Everything was exactly as described, and very clean. There were clear instructions on how to use all the facilities. The location was within walking distance of many things, including Pavilion Mall. Shamza was always available in case we had any questions.
Thanks Shamza for a great introduction to KL!

About the Host, Shamza
My addiction to travelling stems from growing up in Hong Kong - since its a hub of Asia, it was always easy to goto Colombo, Koh Samui, Phuket, Sydney, Bombay, Dehli, Singapore, Kandy, Islamabad, etc. My friend and I are targeting a trip to Trinidad and Tobago next year, and then the World Cup in Brazil in 2014. .
My husband and I are foodies; we maintain a list of shacks and five star places we've eaten at: Cafe Versailles in Miami; Thai, Japanese, Fusion, Peter Luger Steaks in Brooklyn, classic pastrami sandwiches at Kat'z Deli, Ethiopian and Argentinean Meats and Grilled Corn with Mayo at Cafe Habana, Coffee at Gitane all in New York City!; dim sum and seafood favorities in Hong Kong are tried and tested; we've tried Portugese, Cuban, Italian and Malay food in Kuala Lumpur, however, the food and travel journey continues...
Workwise, I've been an academic at Universities and consultant to the US government more recently. At the moment, I'm working on writing my own collection of short-stories.
I love people - its my default setting! Many friends see how this has been a character flaw, and in some cases it is, but that's the package! I love socializing; I accept and respect people with all kinds of disposition - my friends are old couples, tattoed rock stars, dj's, models, wholesome families with kids, difficult graduates, irrational self-centered relatives. Its a whole range. Many of my close friends insist I should be a life -coach; they think I'm well-balanced and respect my opinion. Sweet.
As your host, I really want to give a WSYWIG experience - WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET! I myself have dragged suitcases from hotel to hotel, because of dodgy advertisements and want to avoid that for my guests. I'll be as involved as you want me to be. For places to go, eat, party in KL and braoder travel in Asia - I come with some solid recommendations! Really looking forward to welcoming you to this neighborhood, community, city, country or continent. You choose!
