Kuala Lumpur Accommodation
by: Sophia

Kuala Lumpur offers many types of accommodation for every traveller. We have the 5 star hotels, the not so 5 star hotels, the backpackers’ inns and service apartments all over the city. There’s something for everyone and every budget, even if you don’t have a budget per se.


If you’re looking to live it large and experience all the luxury that Kuala Lumpur has to offer, the 5 star hotels around the city would suffice. Some of these hotels have been around for almost 20 years but refurbishment work is done regularly to maintain its immaculate condition. These hotels would go for roughly RM300 to RM400 per night. Check out SD’s hotel reviews to find out more about the hotels in Kuala Lumpur.


The not so 5 star hotels that grace the streets of Kuala Lumpur are somewhat more stealth than the towering skyscrapers that house the shining 5 star ones. They look more dated and faded but still serves its purpose well. These hotels would be sufficient for those who aren’t looking to spend so much time lounging in their rooms. Besides, there’s so much to see in the city so chances are the hotel room is merely what it is, a place to dump luggage and sleep if necessary. This option would save you some cash as they could start as low as RM120 and go up all the way to RM250 for the 4 star accommodations.


There are also the backpackers’ inns if you’re looking for the ultimate el-cheapo accommodation. It is sporadically located around town with most of them concentrated near tourist attractions such as Bukit Bintang and Petaling Street for convenience sake. These accommodations provide the bare minimum, a bed, a closet, a small desk and a dressing table (if you’re lucky). Housed within shop lots that rarely go above 4 storeys, backpackers’ inns can’t accommodate many because of the lack of rooms. The upside of it is that you’ll be able to meet fellow backpackers who you can travel with while you’re in town. This option would definitely cost less than RM100 per night and if anyone tells you otherwise, move along to the next backpackers’ inn. You can probably try to negotiate the prices if there are no published rates in sight.


If you’re looking for longer stays, service apartments would be ideal. There are many service apartments around town that provide short term to long term stay. These places offer a beautifully furnished apartment style accommodation with hotel like services. It is ideal for families or larger groups. The units usually come with separate bedrooms, a living and dining area and a tiny kitchen. There’s usually a cleaning service, a swimming pool and car park services available. The units usually go for RM250++ per night with discounts for longer stays.

So whatever your budget, whatever your preference, Kuala Lumpur has it all. Just beware of the backpackers’ inns as they might try to swindle you if you don’t look or talk like a local. For all the other options, you can be rest assured that you’ll be treated based on the prices you pay. The more you pay, the better off you’ll be.
