Strategically located in Chinatown with several attractions within walking distance such as the Merdeka Square and Petaling Street, Arenaa Mountbatten is a boutique hotel with history. This hotel is under the management of the Arenaa Hotels Group.

The room rates offered by the counter and online are different. In fact, you can save up to 35% by booking online.

Boutique Design

The hotel interior adopts European design style.

A Failing Hotel

Arenaa Mountbatten may look good on the outside, it is not a well-thought-out hotel. Even worse, our nightmare began after we checked in.

Mistake #6: Number button in lift is not tally with the floor number

The hotel has a total of 6 levels but the first digit of the room number goes to 7. The number “4” (4 pronounced in Mandarin sounds like “si” which is “die”) has been removed by the management.

It is very misleading if your room number starts with “5”, “6” or “7”, to get to the right floor, you’ll have to press the “4”, “5” or “6” button in the lift respectively. It is ironic that if the designer wanted to deliberately avoid the 4th floor, why is he showing button number “4” inside the lift?

Mistake #5: No working table and chair in Deluxe room

We are not sure about other rooms. The working table and chair are not available in the Deluxe room. If you are a business traveler, avoid this hotel.

Mistake #4: Low mattress quality

The picture above speaks for itself.

Mistake #3: The bed is facing the door directly

It is a taboo to have the bed facing the door. Obviously the designer is ignorant about this basic knowledge.

Mistake #2: Night lighting is eerie

If you are a dare devil, go ahead and watch a horror movie.

Mistake #1: Hotel is too near to the LRT track

Unfortunately, this is the killing point of Arenaa Mountbatten Hotel. With all rooms facing the LRT track which is just 5 meters away, you’ll be constantly disturbed by the noise when the trains pass by every few minutes from 5:20am to 12:20am. What’s left is only 5 hours of undisturbed sleep.

Note: The recorded noise below is less disturbing than the actual one experience inside the room.

How to get to this hotel?

Located at the north of Chinatown along Jalan Tun Perak, bus is the only public transport to get to Arenaa Mountbatten Hotel. Since KL’s bus transport system is not robust enough, the most convenient way to get to this hotel is by taxi.
