      cheap, clean, good wifi

      We booked Burmahtel hotel because it is not far from the Youth Park (which we participated in Newton Challenge the next morning). Overall the Burmahtel Hotel was Okay. Clean, good staff, easy check in & check out. Clean room with fully functioning air-conditioned and fan,hot water in the shower, big TV, good Wifi. And it was cheap.. The only problem was the construction which was going on 3rd floor during the day. It was very loud and noisy as we were staying on 3rs floor as well.

      this hotel near pulau tikus that sells many types of food n beverage. there are two hospitals near the hotel too. the hotel provides transportation to many places with reasonable price.

      At the first sight the hotel was horrible at the outside but when you were inside it would change your mind about it. The hotel is nice with the clean room and bathroom. The bathroom itself had a shower n pail which i found very usefull. For the elevator it can only fit 4-5 people. If more, the elevator cannot functioning well.. Burmahtel is a strategic place to live. It near hospital, shopping mall, temples, and Pulau tikus. Moreover there is a bus stop across the street in front of the hotel. Bus that stop in front of it is bus number 103.

As comparison when I stay at other hotel, Maxis 4G+ reach 10+ Mbps, and Digi 4G reach 2-3 Mbps. so I thought the wifi can be a saviour, I was DAMNED. The wifi is far, around -80 db, and half the time disconnecting from the wifi. when it's connecting, the speed was around 500 kbps (not even a mbps), with 500+ ms latency, and high jitter (many packet drops). tldr: the wifi is WORSE than my dial-up experience. wont recommend anyone stay here, no internet = no life

      Very nice hostel”

      I like this hostel a lot, for the discount price they're offering through agoda that means a lot, this hostel is in the city, so very easy for you to find food, close to mall and glenagles hospital, room is clean, bathroom is quite small but ok, ac is ok, it is build from old house, so you will feel the uniqueness of it, i might stay again if i have to go to hospital again

      Good price, spacious room & cheap hourly extension

      My friends and I were registered in the Newton Run and the closest and cheapest hotel to the venue was Burmahtel. It was a pleasant one night stay considering that we only paid RM140 for the entire room which fits 4 comfortably. Here is the downside though: they were renovating the hotel so there was a lot of hacking and drilling which was super annoying (and quite odd since it was a Sunday) because we really wanted to get some sleep before driving back to KL.

      Owner needs to understand the Customers' need”

      LOCATION, FRIENDLY STAFF

      The staff at the hotel were very kind and helpful; good location. cleanliness is ok; however the construction works within the premise of the hotel makes uncomfortable and noisy; There is no telephone number of the hotel except the owner's hand phone number; but she was very, very selfish and not willing to help- when we asked for GPS coordinates of the hotel; so we wasted lot of time driving around the area as the GPS couldn't identify the hotel; the owner only wants to send the location through WHATS-APP-but when we told we don't have mobile data to use whats-app, and requested for GPS coordinates to be sent by SMS, she refused; we have people of this kind in this world who owns the hotel, but never wants to understand the customers; I hope the good works of the staff in the hotel should be supported by owner's change of attitude towards customers.

      Value for Money”

      The hotel is in a very good location as it is right in town. Although it is quite an old hotel, the rooms were clean and comfortable. However, during the night, we were a little unnerved over the condition of the hotel as we had to go through very eerily quiet hallways to get to our room. Would not recommend staying here alone though. Overall it was a good stay.
