The Bukit Bintang station is situated at Bukit Bintang (translated from Malay to English as "Starhill"), a shopping hub in the Kuala Lumpur Golden Triangle commercial district. Erected over Jalan Sultan Ismail, the station is located directly south from the Jalan Sultan Ismail - Jalan Bukit Bintang intersection.
The station has three exits: The northwest exit leads to the west side of Jalan Sultan Ismail, while the southwest and southeast exists directly lead into the BB Plaza and Lot 10 shopping centres, respectively, via pedestrian bridges.
Due to its proximity to Bukit Bintang, the monorail station receives a high volume of passengers during peak hours and non-working days. The station is also the only Kuala Lumpur Monorail to include an overhead link bridge that directly connects its two train platforms. The station's length is also longer in comparison with certain KL Monorail stations.
The Bukit Bintang station is the first station (alongside three other stations stations) towards the Titiwangsa station to be lined along Jalan Sultan Ismail.
The line towards the Kuala Lumpur Sentral station thereafter turns west towards Jalan Imbi at the Jalan Sultan Ismail - Jalan Imbi intersection.
