Rainforest Bed and Breakfast, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

 

This boutique hotel located near Changkat Bukit Bintang is wonderfully located in terms of accessing the monorail, KL Pavillion, and KLCC (via a covered walkway). That is if you don’t mind that the neighbourhood is a party place and you can hear the music thumping even in your room.

I’ve stayed at backpacker’s places before and to be honest, Rainforest BnB was a bit of a let-down during our visit because all the rooms we got had poor air conditioning. I rarely complain but with KL’s humidity beating down on you, the a/c in the rooms was almost non-existent. The staff was friendly enough to give us a different room, but my friend and I encountered the same problem.

The “breakfast” portion was also a let-down because I was expecting a bit more above the standard backpacker fare of toast and jam.

Stay here if you want easy access to everything in Bukit Bintang and don’t mind the party music at 2 o’clock in the morning. Consider this place because it is photogenic and if you don’t mind terrible air-conditioning. Or, if you plan to book, ask for rooms where the a/c is functional.

But as I’m reaching my 30s soon, I feel like it’s time to graduate from staying at backpacker places (even if this is more of a “bed and breakfast” boutique hotel)… I’d like to stay at 3-4 star hotels in my next travels.
