"After reading the reviews about this place I wanted to try it out - it was worth of an experience. Locationwise, it's right on Petailing Street, Chinatown. Plenty of food stalls, fresh cut fruits. The room (bed) is a whole new experience and is worth trying. There are 30 stair steps to walk up to get to the lift to the reception on level 3 and I had no problem with this. I stayed in a single Capsule Bed - 8 Female. It's a newly open hotel. My bed is clean. However, my bed sheet and towel were not changed daily (or I should have asked?). Anyway I was there 2 nights and didn't have issue on this. I do not think they swept the floor the whole time I was there so there were lots of hair on the floor. I could hear people open and close the "Space door" to get into their bed. However, there's 100% privacy once you close your own door. The bed is quite low and could be a bit difficult to get in and out for someone who is less than fit."

"Our Family flies Air Asia and we often require a stop over in Kuala Lumpur. This is never a problem because we always stay at The Explorers Guesthouse. We travel between KLIA 2 and Chinatown on the Star Shuttle bus which has a bus stop 5 minutes walk from the guesthouse. We are always welcomed with a friendly smile no matter what time of day or night we arrive. The staff are very helpful. The guesthouse facilities are just what we require all at a reasonable price - clean comfortable rooms, wifi and desktop computers, storeroom, free toast, tea and coffee for breakfast. It is all good for us and we do not hesitate to recommend this accomodation to others. We look foward to our next KL stopover at The Explorers. Sincerely Gary Collinson and family from Perth Western Australia"

"I checked into Arenaa Star on the 21st October and stayed here for 2 nights. It was a very pleasant stay. First and foremost after putting down my luggage, I ventured to the hotel's open air restaurant located on the Mezzanine floor. The seafood olio oglio I ordered was good. I also tried grilled chicken and lamb chop on subsequent days and they are all ridiculously cheap yet extremely tasty. Wow! The friendly and courteous staffs made the ambience all the more better. When it comes to the accomodation, I must say that it has the coziest bed and pillows for you to rest after a long walk tour around KL which you can easiy access via the LRT and is just a walking distance from Chinatown. Not to mention the big and modern bathroom, flat wide screen tv and various themes that represents each floor. For example the 1st Floor represents the Malaysian stars thus you will see the portraits of the local entertainers painted on the wall along the hallways to every hotel room. Not to mention the Hollywood, Bollywood, Indonesia, Thailand, Japan, Korea etc. You might have a pleasant surprise to see that one of them happens to be your favourite! So in conclusion, Arenaa Stars lives up to its name and is very recommendable for the budget value and comfort. "

"Ahyu Hotel is a treasure Chinatown KL. Simple yet elegant in its own special way plus super affordable. The owner and staff are super accommodating. The place is very near to most tourist attraction in KL and just walking distance to tourist spots within the Chinatown area. LRT station is just around the corner so getting to places outside Chinatown would not be a hassle (though we chose to use grab service since we have seniors in our group). The hotel provided our group with a nice and comfortable place to rest after a day of exploring the city. And did I say they have awesome staff? Will definitely be my go to hotel when I visit KL. Thanks Ahyu for being part of our great KL experience! "
