Travel Forums Asia Kuala Lumpar...budget accommodation advice??

We are travelling to Kuala Lumpar in Jan 2006 for three nights. We are looking for cheap and cheerful accommodation. We are a couple travelling and seek a double room with ensuite.

Can anyone recommend a place or equally somewhere we should avoid. Also, any general advice would be appreciated.

budget accommodation in Chinatown or by the Puduraya Bus Station.

check out an observation deck at the top of the TV tower,

skip national gallery - not worth.

I suppose the TV tower mentioned earlier is KL Tower actually. Batu Cave would be a good spot to visit.

hi, i was in KL a few weeks ago i stayed in a cheap (i think 20-30 rgs) place called le village- its in all the lomley planet guide books- whilst the room didnt have ensuite it was close to everything (food shopping bars etc etc)clean even had a little libary! the check out time was 2pm (very handy!)... dont miss KL tower for sunset, i reckon batu caves is a good bet too i didn't go and i really regret it! have fun!

Hello there..
Yeah..i agree with everyone else here so far, Chinatown & the vicinity surrounding Puduraya bus station should be able to provide cheap accomodation.Batu Caves is an interesting place to go..but it'll be better during Thaipusam; when all the devotees march up the stairs with these `kavadi's. Its something you have to SEE to believe.
Alternatively, there's this street in KL named Doraisamy (jalan Doraisamy) that serves the most unbelievable soups-especially ox-tail soup. The stall's by the side of the road and youd be able to see all races of people eating the same thing. For me, what makes Malaysia so unique is how 3 very different races can live together harmoniously.And what could be a better reason than some really good, cheap road-side soup?
take care!

we're staying in Eight Guesthouse, it just opened in June, and is really nice. Very close to Puduraya bus station, and the train line etc. Staff are nice, and the dorms are lovely, so i would presume the doubles are even lovelier!!

hope that helps
