Set above a restaurant, it would be fair to say that Orange Pekoe Guesthouse doesn’t really look like much from the street, but sticking to the don’t judge a book by its covers theme, the rooms here are both spacious and good value.

Curiously named (according to Wikipedia, orange pekoe is a term used to describe a particular type of tea) the small hotel is located on the back streets of Bukit Bintang and offers quite spacious (though dated) rooms spread across a few floors of the bright orange building.

The lobby level includes a large common area and the breakfast kitchen area (which you can use whenever you want). Staff were welcoming and very friendly and checked us in early at just 10am without a second thought. The guesthouse has a small selection of cold drinks for sale, but for anything more substantial you’ll need to head outside. They can also assist with onwards travel arrangements and so on.

Our room was of a good size, with a decent bed with plenty of pillows, bed side tables and reading lights. There was plenty enough space for a cat-swinging competition, a good desk for catching up on email at, a comfortable chair, and a flat screen TV. The complimentary WiFi worked just fine. Large windows let plenty of light in, but also had heavy drapes that saw us sleep in the next morning.

It is with the bathroom the hotel shows its true age, with older fittings and a need for a good scrub, but overall it was fine.

While we splashed out on the deluxe double (129 ringgit), Orange Pekoe also has quite affordable family rooms which have one double bed and two singles and sleep up to for, starting at 159 to 169 ringgit which struck us as quiet good value.

As already mentioned the location is in the back blocks of Bukit Bintang, but it is just a five minute stroll from the bar strips on Jalan Mesui and Changkat Bukit Bintang and also very close to Bukit Bintang monorail and LRT stations. Pavilion Mall is ten minutes away on foot. Despite the relatively close proximity to the bar areas, we found it to be quiet at night.

Orange Pekoe has no dorms, do if you’re after a bunk bed, the nearby Travelogue Guest House is an excellent alternative. Long-running Rainforest B&B is also near by and is a little cheaper, but some of the rooms have no windows and it does catch a lot of noise from the bars—especially on weekends. If you want something fancier, KL Journal is two minutes away on foot.
