A class apart
What we say:
The word boutique is much overused, but Sahabat is one of only a handful of guesthouses in KL which thoroughly justifies use of the term. It is classy and comfortable in a way that puts many of the city's expensive hotels to shame. Although the prices jump up at the weekend, this place offers seriously good value for money – it's no wonder its eight rooms are so often booked out. Although located on a peaceful side street, it is within easy walking distance of dozens of bars and restaurants. Rates include a light breakfast, tea and coffee, and WiFi.

Do I have that same rug?
For short and sweet - I'm returning to KL with my girlfriend this February and I've booked somewhere else to try something new. If I really loved the place I'd rather just return then risk something worse - so that speaks volumes I guess. It isn't a romantic kind of spot, seems more business-casual. As a boutique guesthouse goes I don't exactly see it here. Unless boutique means they gutted the house and then went to Ikea to fill it back up. That said, the location is surprisingly quiet for being so close to all the bars and restaurants and the room was comfortable. The desk was useful, wireless worked fine, and though the shower wasn't the standard I'd expect for the price (regular flooding) I did enjoy the atmosphere of the sitting area in the morning. I think I stayed in a superior, and didn't like that it was at the front door - even before the check-in desk, so I was awoken by people arriving, you would want to check on that before you finalize your booking. Overall, I wouldn't comment on the friendliness of the staff/family, as they weren't very talkative in the early hours I had to get up to go to my conference - and neither was I. In the evening the young girl was busy flirting with her boyfriend so I didn't feel like interrupting to ask questions. I wouldn't describe them as attentive though.
