Hotel YY38
Ranked #111 of 349 Kuala Lumpur B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 April 2013

Only stayed for 2 nights, but this inexpensive boutique hotel was comfortable with good sized rooms with aircon. The staff are very helpful and the owner/manager loves a chat. There is fresh drinking water available from water coolers on every floor. Hotel is close to everything, with food and shopping and monorail only hundreds of metres away. I would recommend YY38 to the budget traveller who also likes to be close to the action and food.

YY38 is a great hotel for travelers looking to be in the mix of KL for not too much $$. The staff here are the thing that stand out in my mind. They were extremely helpful and very security consciousness, which is great for travelers towing along a tablet and some camera equipment. The location is fantastic, being only a couple streets away from tons of bars, food and most importantly, the stalls and restaurants on Jalan Bukit Bintang. The room itself was not as clean as we would have preferred it, but nothing that would make us leave. The one thing was the sheets, which when we arrived had a couple of holes and unidentified stains on them. This was easily solved by going back to the lobby and asking for new ones, which the staff made very painless and did so immediately. The noise level was fairly low at night and the wifi was free as advertised. The metro is a 5-10 minute walk and the surrounding area is alot of fun to explore.

My group had a 1 night stay at one of the themed loft rooms and it was a really comfortable rest after our Xmas outing where everyone partied hard. The staff were friendly and helpful in many ways. The room was beautifully decorated and was big enough for the 5 of us. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. There's limited parking available and drivers will have to be careful not to miss the entrance road as my friend had to take another 45minutes to make a turn back when he missed the entrance. The hotel is near many malls and eateries. But be careful of cars in the area after midnight, eps if you have friends who are drunk and can't walk straight.

Room Tip: Give the theme loft rooms a try even though they are a little pricier. It's higher and away from...

my trip to KL was being booked recently, looking for some hotel near bukit bintang area. Read some hotel review, and the choice goes to YY38 hotel. but i choose it just because of the colour of the hotel room, hey, i got pink one.. and after i arrived and im sure, im choosing the right hotel for my stay during at KL. the room was not big, but yes, i booked the one person room, free wifi and down at the hotel, you can find a minimart. Next to the Alor Street which is full of foods. and also can walk to Bukit Bintang area for shopping. and the price also affordable. the staffs also helpful. one thing, even at the 5th floor, you still can hear the sound of music playing at the night time.

My stay at the YY38 was pleasant enough. The room was a nice size as was the bathroom. The bed was nice along with nice sheets and very good a/c. Major downside I had was it really needs to be painted. Many scuff marks on the walls in the room and hallway. Note that this is a very basic hotel...no amenities at all. No comp water bottles but they have water cooler at least on my floor (5th). Close to JL Alor and about 5 minute walk to BB monorail station and of course are all the shopping malls and stores with many restaurants. Staff nice but not going out of the way. Only 1 plug in the room which makes it difficult if you have to charge camera and mobile.

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...
