NileGuide Expert tip:
One of the best budget places in terms of location and quality.
Number Eight is a surprisingly calm retreat, mere blocks from the bustle of Bukit Bintang and the nightlife on Changkat Bukit Bintang. Here's where you book if proximity to the shopping and clubbing strips is important. Number Eight spans two pre-war shop houses and each of the rooms is unique which is part of the charm of this budget accommodation. Number Eight delivers a modern twist – you'll find traditional elements contrast entertainingly with updated amenities. There are eight brightly colored double-rooms that are tastefully outfitted with deep wooden furniture and crisp white bedding. A breakfast of toasts, fruits and coffee will be waiting for you in the morning. A stay here will set you back just over RM95/US$31 (for a double room). The great part about staying here is that you are bound to meet other like-minded travelers. The retreat's common lounge area doubles as a meeting spot; it's also equipped with computers to keep you connected.
