Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown
Chinatown,Chinatown - View on map
"Truly enjoyed my stay at Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur Chinatown. This brand spanking new is a gem that was unfortunately opened right before the Covid-19 lockdown. Decor is contemporary with mid-century and vintage Chinatown esthetics. Rooftop bar and pool has a view to behold. Location is right in the heart of cool KL revival. Think interesting restaurants, shops, cocktail bars and arty murals. Highly recommended. "

Opus Residences by Opus Hospitality
Chinatown,Chinatown - View on map
"What more can I say, this place is too good. Been to dozen of accommodation in KL, yet this is by far one of the best place I've stayed. The developer BinaPuri Properties really did splendid job on the building's exquisite details. Too bad we've stayed on MCO time, didn't get to utilize most facilities here. And thanks to Kaleem being a very welcoming reception. Fully recommended 👍🏻"

SEASON POINT HOTEL
Chinatown,Chinatown - View on map
"Very good location, exactly at the entrance of Chinatown, but still at the mainroad, so that it is very easy to get transportation. LRT station is only 7 minutes walking through the street market. Bus stop (include the free go-kl bus purple line) is exactly in front of the hotel, connect it to the lrt pasar seni if you don't to walk. Staff is sooo helpful (I forgot his name, sorry Abang...). He upgrade my room, as I said I need windows. I also heard how he manage the other staffs, and it is very logical. Room is lovely... and it is clean, even for me who has quite high standart for it. The only negative thing is, they don't prepare kettle at room (you need to ask, but when I asked it in the evening, I need to wait until the next morning). I think if you just put water dispenser at the aisle, or even at the lobby, it will helps a lot"

Arenaa Star Hotel
Chinatown,Chinatown - View on map
"I checked into Arenaa Star on the 21st October and stayed here for 2 nights. It was a very pleasant stay. First and foremost after putting down my luggage, I ventured to the hotel's open air restaurant located on the Mezzanine floor. The seafood olio oglio I ordered was good. I also tried grilled chicken and lamb chop on subsequent days and they are all ridiculously cheap yet extremely tasty. Wow! The friendly and courteous staffs made the ambience all the more better. When it comes to the accomodation, I must say that it has the coziest bed and pillows for you to rest after a long walk tour around KL which you can easiy access via the LRT and is just a walking distance from Chinatown. Not to mention the big and modern bathroom, flat wide screen tv and various themes that represents each floor. For example the 1st Floor represents the Malaysian stars thus you will see the portraits of the local entertainers painted on the wall along the hallways to every hotel room. Not to mention the Hollywood, Bollywood, Indonesia, Thailand, Japan, Korea etc. You might have a pleasant surprise to see that one of them happens to be your favourite! So in conclusion, Arenaa Stars lives up to its name and is very recommendable for the budget value and comfort. "

Tian Jing Hotel
Chinatown,Chinatown - View on map
"This is a hotel not only the gimmick which just attracts tourists to have a stay and upload photos to Instagram. It is a very beautiful hotel near to the best community in the city: Chinatown. I really like how they apply the air well traditional architectural feature to all the private rooms especially the lowest floor with a garden, with natural lights and rain coming inside. If there is a chair it will be great for guests to sit in front of the garden to feel more relaxed. The hotel room is also appreciated as all the furnitures are in traditional style. I can enjoy the garden view on my bed as well, and before sleeping I liked turning off all the light in the room, leaving the only stage light on in the garden. The breakfast is a way to understand the Nanyang food culture. They also provide free and high quality drink every day in their coffee shop."

Big M Hotel
Chinatown,Chinatown - View on map
"There are a lot of things I love about Big M Hotel. Before I booked my hotel in KL, I was checking online the reviews. And I did the right choice in staying here. IDEAL LOCATION It has the best location. The train station is just a few meters away. Just at the back of the hotel. So, it’s easier to go to the different places in KL. There are fast food chains in the area. McDo just next door (same bldg). KFC & Burger King are just across. There is also Guardian next to McDo, 7 Eleven & local convenience store across. Central Market, Chinatown, KL City Gallery, temples, Catholic Church, Mosque are just walking distance. Oh! Even KL Tower is just about 30-min walk. ACCOMMODATING & FRIENDLY STAFF When I arrived in the hotel, it was too early for the check in. I requested if I can early check in, and I was so happy that they let me. I was able to leave my stuff. They were all smiling and accommodating. They helped me check in the room, waited for my grab and gave me instructions on how to get to where I want to go. They even let me leave my stuff after I checked out. There is always a staff in the reception area assisting the staff. And they responded to my query and chat in their FB page. I just wish I got their names but unfortunately, I was not able to. But I can commend all of them. COMFORTABLE STAY The room is not so small and not so big. Given that I am alone, this is enough. Even if I have companion, the room is good enough. There is a shelf where can I put my stuff. There is a table, a phone, toiletries. The bed is so comfortable. I had a good sleep. I had a good rest in the afternoon. They gave me free water when I asked. And the blower did a pretty good job during my stay. Hehe. I love also there 7th floor. Where guests can stay, relax and eat. Though I was there just for a few minutes but I love how quiet and relaxing the place. I could definitely recommend this place to my friends and family going to KL. And if I am back in the country especially if I a"

Ahyu Hotel
Chinatown,Chinatown - View on map
"Ahyu Hotel is a treasure Chinatown KL. Simple yet elegant in its own special way plus super affordable. The owner and staff are super accommodating. The place is very near to most tourist attraction in KL and just walking distance to tourist spots within the Chinatown area. LRT station is just around the corner so getting to places outside Chinatown would not be a hassle (though we chose to use grab service since we have seniors in our group). The hotel provided our group with a nice and comfortable place to rest after a day of exploring the city. And did I say they have awesome staff? Will definitely be my go to hotel when I visit KL. Thanks Ahyu for being part of our great KL experience! "

The 5 Elements Hotel
Chinatown,Chinatown - View on map
"The 5th Element Hotel is a great budget option for staying around Chinatown. I've stayed in several sub $50 hotels in Chinatown and they've been horrid, and this hotel was only a fraction more but really quite nice. We were able to check in to all 3 rooms we'd booked at 11am which was fantastic after an overnight flight, and we were delighted to find our rooms had views over Chinatown and we could clearly see both the KL Tower and Petronas Towers - fantastic! Breakfast was adequate but pretty ordinary, but that's pretty much the norm in lower end KL hotels. Close to Chinatown (literally right in the heart of it), the Central Markets and train stations for access to the rest of KL, I highly recommend this hotel. The street outside the hotel has some of the best street food in all of KL, make sure you try the chicken satays, roti bom and claypot chicken and rice!"

More about Chinatown

At the center of Kuala Lumpur is lively Chinatown, a district known for its colorful shopping and entertainment scene. The district centers on Jalan Petaling, a bustling commercial avenue. It runs north-to-south through the district where it hosts the best shops and hotels in Chinatown.

Central Market, also called Pasar Seni, lies between Petaling Street and the Kelang River. In the past, it dealt mainly in produce, but the scope is broader now. Tourists come here to pick up handicrafts, replica designer goods and antiques. They can also head to the Annexe on the second floor for anything from cultural exhibitions to book signings. Pasar Seni LRT station adjoins the market.

Other shopping centers in Chinatown include Kota Raya, S & M Warisan and UO Superstore. None of these venues are as popular or glamorous as their rivals in Mid Valley City or the Golden Triangle, but they’re great for bargains. Each of these complexes has been recently renovated.

Most of the accommodation in Chinatown fronts Petaling Street. As the defining attraction, Petaling Street has the best selection of merchandise and restaurants, and it’s one of the likeliest places to find tourists in Kuala Lumpur. Cheap and authentic hawker food is widely available.

Because of its central location, Chinatown is a favorite place for tourists to be based while visiting Kuala Lumpur. It’s especially popular with backpackers and budget travelers, who make use of the Maharajaalela monorail station and Plaza Rakyat LRT station for getting around town. The Puduraya Bus Terminal, operating services to the LCCT airport and to long-distance destinations like Penang, Ipoh and Kuala Kangsar.
