Budget hotel in KL- Tropical Guesthouse KL

Have you ever been in the situation where you want to look for a nice hotel, guesthouse in KL, but can’t find one. And everywhere you find is so expansive?

Staying in Kuala Lumpur (KL) can be freaking expensive. Finding a budget hotel in KL is easy. But finding a clean and safe one, can be challenging.

If you haven’t noticed, the prices for a 3-4 star hotel room in KL – (Malaysia’s capital) is just crazy. Your looking at paying somewhere between RM 280 (84USD)- RM 700(200USD) for a night. Maybe opt for 2 star then for RM 180 ( 54 USD). Still expensive for us.
Then you start to think, what about budget accommodation? Sure there are plenty. Weather it is safe, clean, friendly or even livable for that matter is another story all together. Most of the guesthouses and budget hotels in Chinatown and around KL are either catering for prostitution or is dirty and not safe.
Rule of thumb when looking for a room in Malaysia is , never go for the ones that are above an olden coffee shop, or has a chinese name to it. Unless you read Chinese? Probably it might say “Aah Cheongs Fantasy Hotel” :p if you are looking for happy happy, then this isn’t the topic for you.

So your options for nice, clean, decent, safe guesthouse is not limited. You just need to look harder.
Here is one that we have been staying in, and do not have any complaints. Tropical Guesthouse KL. Click to check out their room rates and where they are. Tropical Guesthouse is located about 5 minutes walk from Bukit Bintang – KL’s popular shopping, dining and entertainment district. Plenty of bars and restaurants are located along Changkat Bukit Bintang which is just round the corner. Staying here, you dont have to worry about where to eat, shop, drink or access any of the attractions in KL. ( KLCC is only 4LRT stops away).
