Orange Pekoe Guesthouse is a basic accommodation in Bukit Bintang area. Walking distance to Pavilion, Jalan Alor, Raja Chulan Monorail Station.
The family room was clean and spacious enough for 4 person. Very simple, no TV, no cabinet. Aircon and water heater work well. For me, its recommended place to stay for those who needs an affordable room in Bukit Bintang area.
We booked this place for our arrival into Kuala Lumpur. We arrived just as rain set in and were dropped off by a friend. At checkin we were told that our room was not available due to a maintenance problem. This was stressful for us as it was about 22:30, raining, the neighborhood looked questionable, and we had no car. The manager kindly offered to add a bed into a smaller room to accommodate the 4 of us but when we looked at the room we wanted to stay elsewhere. A quick check on a nearby hotel with vacancy showed us an inferior room which we declined, so we returned and accepted the manager's offer.
You have to buzz in through the front door which was not well marked, then buzz in again at the top of the stairs. Underneath the hotel is a restaurant. The room was modest at best. The bathroom was too small for two people at once. The air conditioning was noisy. Lighting was dim. Linens were worn. The bed was uncomfortable for my wife and I (we are older people more sensitive to that). After checkout we discovered that the neighborhood was in an area that had seen increased prostitution in previous years but was being cleaned up ahead of our visit.
The manager was the bright spot here. He spoke chinese and malay, and I think a little bit of english. He left us with the impression of an honest businessman working in a trying environment.
Convinient location with walking distance to shopping district and public transport hubs. Breakfast included but very basic. Room service could be better and more regular. But price is really cheap for this city so you can choose it if you are traveller and use hotel just to sleep.
This guest house is clean, safe and close to the action. It is nestled downhill about 150 meters from Bukit Bintang, a hub in this modern city. The room is Spartan with sensitive air conditioning where one is treated to the nostalgic call to prayer. The staff was especially helpful and attentive. This is not a facility for a person needing a wheelchair. I would definitely stay there again
First thing I must say is that this was cheap and in a slum area. Even the locals with business downstairs did not know where this place was when asked by the taxi driver. It was well located as far as local shops etc but close surrounds were awful. Rooms were very basic furniture looks good on photos but not practical at all. There was no daily room service and family room was cramped. The breakfast included was a help yourself to cereal, toast and tea in the kitchen and guests had to clean up after themselves - which everyone did as kitchen was spotless.
