Number Eight Hotel, KL
Number Eight Hotel, a Kuala Lumpur mid-range / budget hotel, embodies the rarest of combinations: a guest house with the aesthetic of a trendy boutique. Located in KL Golden Triangle, Number Eight Hotel is a converted shophouse that provides inexpensive, stylishly-appointed rooms. This new place stands out in so many ways. Two colonial shop houses have been completely renovated to create an environment of casual chic. Past the front courtyard, guests enter a wide, cool room with angular couches, soft red and grey tones, and a massive relief map of Southeast Asia. There’s air-con as well as ceiling fans, and the blissful feel of the original parquetry underfoot.
The service is impeccable for a mid-range / budget hotel, every guest will naturally feel like part of an extended family the staffs, and never once, is your privacy, or comfortability compromised.
However light sleepers beware, there have been several complains of loud noise across the street.
Case 1: You can hear every footstep, people talking and doors slamming. However worse still it also happens to be right on a busy one way system and opposite a 24/7 eatery which also shows premier football matches on a wide screen tv from most European Countries – think of the time difference!! This really is not good if you have a room at the front which we did and resulted in us getting no sleep at all!
Case 2: But the noise at night from the street and an outdoor chinese cinema across the street made my stay here a bit of a nightmare. No sleep.
Ask for a room at the back away from the front street noise, or get your ear plugs prepared just in case.
( Number 8 Hotel has a very cool website, check the site for their room rates. Ask for promotional rates! As well as rooms at the back. )
