The rooms are small, sheets almost clean but the location (near bars, food courts and restaurants), relaxed vibe, friendly staff (invited us for a meal for Chinese New Year) and western bathrooms make the guesthouse a cosy place in the city.

We visited Kuala Lumpur in January 2013 and had a drink at the Tropical Guest house and a chat with the really nice manager. When we realised that we had a night to spend there in January 2014 - we emailed the Tropical and booked a room in August 2013. We had numerous communications with the owner confirming our room...

Very well located in Bukit Bintang (next to bars and restaurants, and next to Jalan Alor with all the chinese food courts). The staff was nice and gave us useful advice to discover Kuala Lumpur. The rooms and bathrooms are ok (not dirty, but not perfectly clean neither), even if they are a bit old. A little coat of paint...

This is the most insane guesthouse I've ever stayed at. As I write, it's past 10pm and the music that is being blasted throughout the GH (there are actually speakers in the ceiling outside every room) shows no sign of relenting. It's a Monday. When the music isn't blasting, you are sure to wake up from the person talking in...

This is a nice and cosy guesthouse that allows late check-ins which is great as I was arriving quite late from Singapore. I made a last minute booking here after deciding to head to KL for the weekend so I booked the Presidential Suite. After making my booking, I sent a follow-up email which was promptly responded to, while I...

We went to Tropical guest house at 6:15am after a very long bus ride from Thailand... We were very tired and decided to stay in this friendly looking guesthouse. We checked in around 6:15am - 6:30am and paid about 70RM which we though was a lot for what it was; basic but clean room with shared facilities. We got some...

Me and my partner stayed for 7 nights roughly as we didn't have a plan as to where to go next. The rooms are very very small. We even paid extra for a "sexy" room because it has it's own bathroom. And it's tiny. THEN. Next issue. They play this ridiculously annoying music 24/7 and all over the guest house....

“Quit complaining at cheap guest houses. If you don't like it after one night, you can try another and another to your hearts content in Asia. Be a happy camper no matter where you stay and you'll have a great trip. This place is 5 star in my book.”
