The location is super strategic for solo traveller. It is also strategic to use the kelana line (pasar Seni).The room is super comfortable and clean. But, the stairs to go up to your room might get you tired if you are not used to going up to more than 3rd floor of building

We recently stayed at the submarine guest house for 2 nights. For a budget accommodation, the rooms were excellent. The thing that we will remember most is how helpful and accommodating Max was. All of his tips, airport shuttles, bus information etc. we're extremely helpful. He always made sure we were taken care of. The great AC, free filtered water...
