Bill is the best host you can imagine. He greeted us at the apartment when we arrived and made sure everything was good for us. He was also quick to reply to any questions we had before and during the trip.

The location is great. You can walk to everything and are surrounded by great food. The apartment is right behind Hotel Istana.

I wear white socks inside. In many other places we have stayed, the quickly get dingy. Bill keeps this apartment very clean. My socks stayed white!

This apartment made our stay in KL a great one.

Bill greeted us at the apartment and was friendly and helpful. Roomy two bedroom apartment in great location 5min walk to monorail station. Loved having two bathrooms with teenager travelling with us. Added bonus was the washing machine.

I had read other reviews so had an idea what to expect.
The Extra sheet I had taken was great advice and I had also taken extra towels.
The neighbours are noisey but I had taken ear plugs and I guess you get that where ever you stay.
For three of us it was great and the location is excellent, having bottled water already there was a lovely gesture.
Bill is a great host that is willing to go out of his way for you.
We were the only ones that used the pool, I thought it was very clean and a good size too.
Wi-fi was great too.

Dear guest, TQ for staying at the Bidara condo. I am surprised to know that the neighbours were noisy. As a matter of fact, the neighbours are well mannered families. Anyway, sorry for the disturbances & noises.
I also appreciate your suggestion on providing more towels for the future guests. It's indeed in my mind for a while.
Lastly, I hope you have had a good holiday in Kuala Lumpur.
Bill

Bill was a great host, very friendly and helpful.
It was great having a washing machine in the unit so we were self contained.
The apartment is spacious and well stocked and clean. Good views.

It is so close to the monorail, and Bukit and only a shame we could not stay longer.
I would certainly request this apartment again if we were fortunate to go back to KL.

The only down side was having only one key and swipe card when there were five adults wanting to go different ways. However the guard was very helpful and got to know us.

Dear guest, TQ for staying at the Bidara Condo. I am glad that you have liked the apt. Actually to have 2 sets of key & card is not a problem, I probably should have passed 2 sets to you in order to avoid the inconvenience. Lastly, if ever there is a chance of coming back again, please do write to me.
Thanks again.
Best regards.
Bill

It is value-for-money with sufficient amenities for a comfortable stay. We accidentally locked ourselves out of our bedroom once - Bill was around in no time to save the day.

“Bidara at the heart of KL action!”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

Bidara is a superb position from which to access so much that KL has to offer within a few minutes walk to monorail, free pink bus (that takes 4 different routes in hop on hop off style)other bus lines and from there to Lrt and other train services. Jalan Alor with its multitude of action, colour and food experiences to Petaling Street, Central Markets and the bussling Area around Masjid Jamek. Ah Kl we sweat however, we love your vibrancy.
As for the unit at Bidara, we were very comfortable. The host, Bill was extremely gracious and we felt welcomed. All the basic needs for a short stay are in the unit and as supermarkets and convenience stores are within a few blocks we did not want for anything. Highly recommend this as a brilliant spot. Just remember part of the joy of being in a unit is to live a little like a local and asia is a place of experiences! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Security was very high too and our teens were very pleased with the pool and gym facilities too.

“Good value, centrally located”
Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This condo is exactly as shown in the pictures. Two bedrooms, both with queen sized beds. Extras like an iron/ironing board, clothes drying rack, plenty of hangars and ample storage space for clothing were included. Bill the owner was great to leave coffee for us as well as a big jug of drinking water. There is a washing machine in the condo but if you chose, the main floor of the building has a laundry service (I did not use it). The fitness centre was nice to have, my two adult children used it daily. The condo is centrally located to shopping districts, about a 25 minute walk to Petronas Towers and the mall, and about 20 minutes to walk to KL Tower. The monorail is close by, about 5 to 10 minutes of walking and this will take you to KL Sentral station where you can transfer to a number of trains (other areas within the city, trains to airport, trains to northern Malaysia, Singapore or Thailand). There is also a very good app for phones to help you navigate the transit system, I highly recommend using it. At the end of the street from the condo is a 24 hour Indian restaurant, great place to eat breakfast if you don't want to cook. Around the corner from there is a store you can buy bottled water, toiletries, some groceries as well as a fruit stand. Within easy walking distance of the condo are several bars, restaurants as well as Jalan Alor, the street that has all the food stalls at night. This is a great place to go for a bite to eat in the evening.

Bill was great to deal with, very friendly, helpful and easy to reach by phone/text. Halfway through the week, he came and changed the bed linens and towels for us. Thank you so much Bill, we enjoyed our stay in Kuala Lumpur and appreciated all the help you gave us.
