This room is right next to Bangsar LRT station that is a huge plus, it saves you time and money. Other than that the owner send us a detailed mail regarding how to reach the hotel and map too - map was pretty cluttered still was helpful. This is like 1 stop away from KL Sentral so commuting is easy....

I only had one roommate so the room feel spacious for just two of us. Had a great stay there. It kinda hard...

I booked this hotel for a weekend getaway with best friends. We were looking for a simple place to sleep within the KL Sentral area and we chose The Bodhi Lodge based on the good reviews.
