Upon reaching Jalan Nagasari, one will notice the old buildings that are blocked off by the posh hotels from the main street. Little will one know that they will be filled with surprises upon walking up the stair in between an internet shop and closed shop houses.
The B&B is clean and i will consider it almost 'posh' for B&B, clean and carrying a style of zen. Everything was keep simple with basic furnitures for your needs of hanging clothes and put your stuffs, no cupboard.
Staffs were friendly and helpful. I will like to compliment one of them but i did not manage to get hold of his name. A malay guy sporting a very short hair in uniform working at from 8am on 12/09/2012. He was help, cheerful and very pleasant to speak too, making one feel that he is trying to help wholeheartedly.
As a traveller on a shoestring and a backpacker keen on meeting fellow travellers, i do find that the B&B does not provide a setting that allows much mingling around. On saying that, the nest will provide one tired traveller an environment to rest well away from the usual 'party' with other traveller.
The nest is situated within the "golden triangle" of Kuala Lumpur (if i am not wrong). Huge shopping malls are within walking distance yet other attractions like the chinatown will be slightly far to walk but still walk-able.
Location is really not an issue in Kuala Lumper, be it you are staying near little india/chinatown or golden triangle. Monorail and LRT are easy to take (it may amount to quite an amount per day) if not, walking will be a good choice with a good map. In addition, there is a free shuttle bus service, GOKL, now that will be of beneficial.
The nest, i will not really list it under a B&B but more of a budget hotel. It is slightly more expensive compared to other guesthouse but definitely worth it if you are not into interacting and just needed a break.
