We were really happy with our experience at Hotel Lok Ann. We stayed 3 days the first time then 1 night after returning from Melaka to get a flight the next day.

It is a good location for exploring Chinatown and around the main tourist drag in Kuala Lumpur. It is also really close to transport to other parts of KL. There are also an amazing Nonya restaurant just around the corner. The staff will provide you with maps and tell you exactly where to go and how to get there.The room we had the first time we stayed was 80 ringit, and after looking at some dingier places for the same money and some swankier places for slightly less this felt like good value. The room itself had 2 double beds which was nice and a hot shower and a fan. It was also quite big and had all white wooden furniture and some flowers. It got a little hot and was a little noisy is my only complaint but we had a room looking down Jalan Petaling so not all bad and understandably noisy. Overall friendly staff except for one grumpy lady that tried to refuse making us breakfast (it is definitely included).

When we came back they organized a lift to the airport really early in the morning for a reasonable price, they even made sure to ring around to find other guests to make it cheaper. When they found out we were honeymooners they put us in an even bigger room with AC for the same price we had already been paying. Wish I had mentioned it sooner!

Overall the guesthouse had nice communal spaces, good WIFI connection, nice rooms and really lovely staff (except for grumpy morning lady).

Room Tip: rooms away from the main drag are quieter.

Every trip is more about people then about conditions where you stay. Well, conditions in Lok Ann are quite good - hot shower, simple but big rooms with windows!! and aircon + breakfast for 80 MR. Nothing to complain about, but a bit of ants in the room.

But the main specialty of Lok Ann hotel is really super friendly and helpful staff. They all could provide a lot of information about KL: places which are worth visiting, what is the easiest way to get from one place to another etc. And it definitely raises a value of a stay in a foreign country.

Lok Ann hotel is located in a good location near china town and heritage walk. More of a guest house than a hotel. Recommended for backpackers and budgeted trip. The hotel is not well maintained especially in the third floor area. There are also hotels near the area to choose from besides Lok Ann Hotel.

Room Tip: see the room first before checking in. the 2nd floor is well maintained than the 3rd floor.

Nice to be back after a year of travel. Willi (the owner) meets me at the train station.It's great to see him again. At the hotel I meet his dad, Helen the receptionist, Veronica the houskeeper and everything feels a bit familiar - almost like home. I like the rooms and that you have your own bathroom. It's perfect to settle down and have a bit of privacy. The beds are comfortable and I know I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight.

I can definitely recommend this place!!! Perfect location, easy to get here with public transportation, nice staff and clean & comfortable rooms.

Enjoy (and say hello to Willi from me ;-)

The staff at Lok Ann was very friendly and service minded. We actually went to Birdnest guesthouse first but were offered to stay at lok Ann cause they were full. We decide to stay there cause we wanted out own room with private bathroom because we were sick at the time. The owner (the man) drove us to the hospital without charging us anything and they also helped us with anything else we needed. Rooms are spacious but of basic standard. There are a lot of trouble with bed bugs and cockroaches in china town, the staff were honest about this and asks their guests to not eat in the rooms and so on to prevent them. We didn't have any problems at all though! Saw to ants in 4 days, that's it. This was a perfectly fine place to stay at for a couple of days on a small budget and location is great. But the friendly staff of course made our stay good despite hospital visits and so on... I recommend this place and the Birdnest guesthouse as well even though we didn't actually spend a night there.
