    comfortable room in nice location ”

    good location, good price and comfortable room

    We stayed at birdnest twice. The first time for 5 nights and we returned for one more night when we returned to KL to get a flight as we enjoyed our stay. The only small issue I had with the first stay was our room was not made up in the 5 nights we were there. If I asked they probably would have done the room but staff were not always available to ask. We did ask for a change of towels one evening when we returned from our day out which they happily provided. Overall the room was comfortable and well priced for a double with private bathroom. Road could be a little loud but we were up in the morning anyway so it was not a concern for us. Staff when around were always very welcoming and friendly.

    location price helpful staff

    We arrived on chinees new year in Malaysia after a 12 hour flight. Birdnest has 2 locations. Our room wasn't free so we had to go to the other cheaper location for one night. The next day we went to our booked room and this one was fine. The location is in China town with good food and crowded streets, I love it. Also the train station is nearby. From the airport we took a cab for 75 ringits and the KLIA express back both were very comfortable. When we come back to KL we would stay again in the birdnest.

    1 night in birdnest.”

    The location to rrain and bus stations, and the rooftop seating area was great.

    Stayed here for 1 night in a twin private room, before moving on to taman Negara. Found the location to be great for bus and train stations to get round the city. A short 2 min walk to either. There was also a travel agents in the hotel next door, ideal for booking trips, but it is worth checking prices for the trips online. The only down side was that you couldn't leave the air con on when out of the room because of the keycard system for the power. But not a major issue. The room quickly cooled down as the aircon worked great.

    I stayed this guesthouse for 2 nights, there is no TV, no shampoo, no soap, no hand lock inside the room, no hanger, one toilet paper for 2 nights, nobody come to clean the room. too small bed for 2 persons. Checking out time is 11 am. The western receptionist guy is not nice and not professional, wearing loose vest. The owner is too thrifty using low quality material, the bathroom is slippery. There is narrow curtain, so the outsider may see something inside the room. the only good thing in this guesthouse is location. but there are so many guesthouse and hotel around here.

    Locals! This is a guesthouse Malaysia so do not expect as guesthouses in Bali (lol). No amenities such as toiletries. The room is slightly smaller but it fits for 2 adults. The most lovely was the rooftop, it gives me the Bali vibe (without swimming pool). Location is just nice, near to MRT Pasar Seni. The cleanliness is just nice. You have to iron the outside, btw. Overall, for locals who would like to try staying in guesthouse Malaysia, this guesthouse is recommended.

    Amazing location right next to Chinatown and the MRT (5 mins from KL Sentral). Room is simple ( you’ll need to pop out for toiletries but there is a 7eleven right below so this isn’t a problem) Bed was really comfortable and it’s quiet at night. Best part is Wandi who was very helpful and even spent an evening having drinks with us on the rooftop and entertaining us with his guitar and giving us all the tips on the local area/ food. Rooftop is really nice would recommend having some beers up there! Thank you!
