Today we found in our inbox a message from Tripadvisor complimenting us on our good review score with a “Bravo” badge. Here is why we are a little proud: over the last 3.5 years Orange Pekoe got some 600 Tripadvisor reviews. This means on average one review every other day. Given the small size of our business this is a lot. Furthermore, almost 85% of our guests rated us either “excellent” or “very good”. We feel honoured and say thank you to all our guests who took the time to write a review. Every feedback is motivation to further improve and to always give our best in providing feel-good budget accommodation in downtown KL.
During the last 12 months the world has seen considerable fluctuations of major currencies. Everybody knows about the newly gained strength of the US Dollar and the Euro weakness. What many people don’t know is that the Malaysian Ringgit has also depreciated in value which means that your Malaysia holiday has just become more affordable. Even travellers from Europe may rejoice because the Ringgit has fallen almost in tandem with the common currency. This means that Europeans won’t feel the pinch when they discover beautiful Malaysia. Enjoy local breakfast at a downtown restaurant for as little as 1 Euro 20 Cents, catch a movie for 3 Euro, use KL’s Monorail for 30-60 Euro Cents or take an air-conditioned coach (incl. infotainment) from KL to Singapore for very affordable 17 Euro. At our guesthouse you get an air-conditioned double room with ensuite bathroom, Wifi, breakfast etc for as little as 22 Euro. On top of that you may enjoy e.g. the super attractive airfares offered by AirAsia in case you want to explore the region. What these examples can’t tell you of course is that to discover Malaysia always means to discover an entire world. This is how diverse and colourful we are 🙂
