Accomodation recommendations Kuala Lumpur?
12th March, 2010
Can anyone recommend any budget/flashpacker accomodation in Kuala Lumpur, all the ones I've checked out have loads of reports of bed bugs!
Don't mind paying a little extra to stay somewhere I know is going to be alright as I'll only be there a couple of nights.

Hi - I stayed at MyHotel@sentral and found it very good for a night. It's about 100m from the Sentral bus/train station so very easy for getting around. Lots of local restaurants nearby. I thought it was very clean and tidy, TV, free Wifi, nice bathrooms. It reminded me of a the Tunes hotel a little bit, near KLCC airport - but rooms were bigger.
Just had a look on Agoda website and current prices are around US$27/night - which is about what I paid earlier this year. http://www.agoda.com/asia/malaysia/kuala_lumpur/my_hotel_sentral.html#
The best thing was how close it was to the train/bus station. Nothing related to the hotel, but if you happen to be flying out on Malaysian Airlines you can walk across the road to the station, find the airline terminal and check in for your flight. They'll take your bags, give you your boarding passes etc, and you just catch the train direct to the KLIA airport. It's a very quick and easy way to check in - no waiting around at the airport. Trains leave every 15 mins and it takes 1/2 hour.

I'm staying at the Traveler's Palm Lodge right now and it is not bad. Very close to train and Low Yat Plaza and tons of restaurants and bars. Clean, no bugs, and the Lady that runs it is very sweet. 30RM a night for a 6bed dorm room or i think 55RM for single room.

Last year we stayed in Monkee Inn on JL Sultan. Right next to China town and near enough to transport. It was pretty new then so seemed very clean. We just had a very basic small double room with shared bathroom and it was about 60RM for 2 people - so not the cheapest place around but I'd stay there again. They have a lounge area and breakfast is included.

I was at Matahari Lodge last week -- simple but clean rooms, good ventilation (no window though), spotless bathrooms, and a minute's walk from the Pasar Seni LRT station. It was 39 RM for a single with a shared bathroom. http://www.mataharilodge.com/
Another good option if you want a few more comforts is the Mayview Glory hotel. It's right across from the main bus station (Pudu Raya) and it's 80 Ringgit or so on a weekday. Rooms are older, but air-con, attached bathroom, TV, etc. It fills up fast though - especially on weekends. http://mayviewglory.com/
