“Good service and location”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

Hotel YY38 is definitely a good deal. It's has great location for a decent price. The security at the hotel is top notch, and the staff is very helpful.

We stayed four nights at two different times. The room we had during our first stay was clean and good. However, I always travel with my own sheet - which came in handy as the sheets were stained. Our second stay didn't start off too well. We first got a room that was not well cleaned, then we got a room that smelled so bad, something must have been wrong with the sewer. However, the staff offered us a bigger, clean room (once we got to talk to the manager who was very solution oriented) and this was great.

Stay here, but check the room first! Oh, and their mattresses are great!

Room Tip: Our room on the sixth floor was surprisingly more quiet than the ones on the fifth. Check your room...

Definitely a very good place to stay! The hotel is very close to bukit bintang and the mono rail station. There is a mini mart just outside as well as good restaurants and a couple of bars. The staff was friendly and helpful and our room was nice and clean.

nice price nice room with window. clean, simple, colorful... staffs are very helpful. very modern for 2STARS hotel. Location near bukit bintang. A little bit off road and road is 1way only so if you're really want to stop in front of the hotel by car, have to turn a little. But not quite a problem because the location is on the corner of the street. A little bit far from station.

While I had read all mixed reviews in this chic and colourful hotel, I took my opportunity to experience it.
The room was clean and organised, filled with basic needs such as cool air-con, complimentary unlimited usage of wireless internet access, hot shower and a good night sleep after a long day ahead. Although there is no kettle in the room, there is a water dispenser located in the hall corridor. The hotel keycard needs to be scanned in the lift before it moves to the particular floor. On top of that, there are 2 buttons next to power switches in the room. 1 is Do Not Disturb while the other is Maid To Make Up The Room. There are a number of studio units which are suitable for a group of friends and family.
Staffs are helpful and knowledgeable. Complimentary car parking is provided for all in-house guests, however it is very limited.
The location is centralised - KK Mart is located next to the hotel and 7 Eleven is located in the junction (Tingkat Tong Shin). Food is not a problem at all as a burger stall is located in just opposite KK Mart, restaurants and bars are along the street and near to Jalan Alor & Jalan Bukit Bintang as well. Shopping??? Not an issue. It takes 5 minutes walk to the shopping haven in Jalan Bukit Bintang (Pavillion, Starhill Gallery, Fahrenheit 88, Lot 10, Sg Wang Plaza, BB Plaza).
Overall, I was quite satisfied with this hotel and recommend it to my friends and family. I will come and stay at this hotel again when I'm next in town.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Jalan Sahabat (next to apartments) are quieter.

This is indeed a budget hotel which is pretty good for the price you pay.
I had a pink non-smoking room on the 5th floor with a double bed. My room was very clean and well organised compared to the space available. I felt like in a teenage room with my pink walls, curtains and lights :) Hot water shower which was great after nearly two months of cold showers in Indonesia. They provide towels and shower gel/shampoo. You have space to put your bags, a small desk with a mirror, air-co and even a TV with English channels. Free water refill in the corridor. I am quite surprised with the previous comments actually. I had a different experience. First of all it is only RM19 from the LCCT airport and they leave you in front of the hotel. Same thing on the way back when you leave the city.
Then the location, for me ideal as I knew already the neighborhood and wanted to have a lot of facilities at a walking distance. Just down the street you will find the Tropical Spa for great massages (facial+Thai and compress massages, 2hours for only RM110), several places to enjoy delicious local food (you can eat prawns and noodles for only RM6), shops, malls, cinema, post office etc etc.
And of course with such activities around well indeed at night it is a bit noisy however I did not need earplugs and well I also did not expect that such a huge city will be quiet at night. I slept like a baby until 10 am. Plus you have a do not disturb button as in the standard hotel. Check out is at noon but you can get an extension until 2pm for free. They ask for a deposit in cash of RM50 that you get back when you leave. They have a 24hours check in so it is pretty convenient when you arrive late or go out. The woman at the reception is the most professional one and speak a very good English.
Oh and of course you also have the metro station at 5 minutes walking.
I recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Well if you are noise sensitive maybe ask for the highest floor possible.

This hotel was very budgeted hotel. The room was cleaned and changed towels everyday.
Location also good. Staffs were kind. Although little bit noised at night. Because 24hr outside restorants are next street.
If you are considering budget & location, I recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: No durian allowed at hotel.
