Close to china town
The only thing I can say about the Hotel Malaya is it s close to China Town. The hotel is old and rundown in my opinion. The rooms are small and drab. No drinking water supplied in the room, when we inquired receptionist told us to boil some. After complaining the manager sent up 1 small bottle.We booked in for 3 nights and only stayed 1 night.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: close to china town

The hotel feature

The location was good which located at the heart of petaling street and also the centre of shopping that is near to central market and the LRT for traveller to explore more.
The hotel rates was reasonable and as for the location wise was really satisfying.But information in the room that was provided are still lack of information such as to include the booklet of the LRT and Monorail for the foreign traveller guide to roam KL.
Shopping Tip: The place are actually full of shopping paradise.And things to buy can be bargain at your need.

living and loving hotel malaya

1. Breakfast is excellent - as far as "how Malaysia" it taste like - kudos to the cook 2. Toilet is clean - though the knob keep falling out 3. Love the scenery because I never get to see the Buddist temple and the Indian temple from above - love, love 4. Staff are very helpful - they even cleared the street for us to park, despite the fact that the hotel does not provide parking space
Good place to stay if you wish to experience "living la vida loca" in the heart of Petaling Street. You get to enjoy night and superb Sunday morning shopping - coz they can resist selling something in the morning. Plus, the location allows you hassle free shopping as you can just pop back to the hotel the send the stuff - and be well on your way to more shopping, be it in Petaling Street or Central Market, or anywhere else in KL. It takes minimum sweating to get to the Monorail or Putra LRT station, which will take you wherever you fancy in KL. Hotel food is very aesthetically prepared - even as Malaysian, I still love it. Otherwise, foods are abundant, just name it - street food to fine dining.
Shopping Tip: Do it in the morning - Sunday that is! Bargain at least 60% of the cover price, and be persistent. The can't resist selling it to you for "luck" that day.

Gd for short trip

Just walking distance to bus hub puduraya (for going genting)and LRT( for going klcc). Breakfast was gd on 1st night. Nice room layout Friendly staffs and always gives tips on travelling ard w/o being overcharged.
Its Gd deal if u just need a gd place to rest while moving around kl and genting. Its just situated at petaling street so its convenient to shop and dump our things on d hotel. Near to raggae club.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Exactly at petaling street, near to sentral market, mydin wholesale store. To go klcc dont waste money on taxi, just take lrt nearby. Take bus to genting , make sure u got a return ticket the first thing Wen arrived genting highlands. Otherwise taxi Fare can be as expensive as 100ringgit after 10pm

Malaya Review

Near market so we can buy what we want easily A large and nice family room
The Malaya Hotel is an old hotel but it's a nice hotel within the market place. We can walk through the market, like at Petaling Street and Central Market. The hospitality of the front officer makes us welcoming well. The hotel have a large enough family room, so we can put our luggace easily. The hotel had good breakfast. It had a little weakness, like the excavator had to repair several times, so we couldn't use it. And the AC is very cold, couldn't set to certain temperature. But we had a nice experiences slept at the Malaya Hotel.
Hotel Feature Tip: You can use all the facilities at the hotel, ie: warm water every hour, the television channel every hour, and the breakfast until 10.00 AM

A place to rest

Nothing special
I had a very short stay. Just check in to have a rest for a night. The next day early in the morning i left the hotel to another place. But what I can remember is that I has a good sleep that night.

Stay at Hotel Malaya

Good location
The hotel is located at very good location. Very near to Chinatown. However, the room is small and the furniture is old. The heater water is not hot enough. Matteress is very soft. Breakfast is normal.Lift needs some repair because it jerks whenever reaching a level. It is scary. Not so value for money.
