    During my stay in checkmate guest House I really had a good time. The rates are very reasonable. The staff (Abbas, Masood, Mohsin, Raju) is very co-operative. Located in one of the best tourist towns in kl.

    it was so close to all the exciting places (restaurants and Shopping centers and night life) and transportation. you just had to come out and you where in the middle of all the excitement! except for the airport transport, we did not spend a dim on taxi. monorail and trains were enough.

    lack of shelves in the bathroom (no where to put your stuff). towels not being white! they were maroon.

    Perfect location in the middle of the city, walking distance from most shopping & nightlife spots. Wifi free and fast. Hotel Staff is very friendly and helpful. Gave us a good idea about how to spend our time in Kuala Lumpur. Great value for money and its a perfect place to stay for budget travellers and backpackers.

    Room and bathroom are small but good enough for two persons and for the price we pay.

    The location is great

    Room is tiny and not well maintained. No hot water for the first 2 days. Bed is very bad and bedding is even worst. Bad smell in the bedding.

    The hotel staff

    It didn't have toothpaste and towels in the room. Also, there was no tv. And the breakfast was poor. It cannot be a real breakfast, just bread and jam, no butter, no cheese.

    1. Good location with reasonable price. 2. Room attached with toilet small, but good enough for 2 persons. 3. Hotel staff service okay.

    Cleanliness problem. The room floor oily, bed with weird smell and hair.

    Perfect position in the middle of the city.

    The rooms are really small. Only the space for the bed and 4 big luggages, then...no more space available! But for the price paid it's ok.

    Perfect location in the Golden Triangle, walking distance from most nightlife spots. Great value for money, in this district. Wifi free and fast. Friendly staff.

    You get what you pay for: room is small and has no window; bathroom is tiny, with no hooks or shelf whatsoever, and the shower aims directly to the toilet...! My bed sheet had a stain. Breakfast included is a do-it-yourself coffee or tea with bread and jam. There is no dining room so you have to figure out where to have it. But at this rate, you can't expect to sleep at the Hilton.

    The staff was friendy and helpful. The location is very strategic if you wanted to stay at the city, only 5 minutes to bukit bintang and to monorail station. Although the room is very small but suitable for young couples to stay who haven't any children yet. Near with 24 hours restaurant, if you wanted to have a breakfast, just across the street you will find like small kiosk which has offered teh tarik, nasi lemak, rice and fried noodle.

    The breakfast actually was very dissapointing, it's only plain bread.
