"Holidaying overseas it is important that you get the comfort and convenience. Big M is my regular stay when we need an accommodation near Chinatown. The warm hospitality of the friendly and helpful staffs never ceased to amaze me so far ... Thanks you! Importantly for us is that we have a clean & enough space room for two, comfortable beds, good air con & shower, and fast wifi. The Masjid Jamek LRT interchange station is a few steps away and has two Rapid KL LRT systems which cover a sizable area of places. Taxis are available at the station however getting Grab is cheaper. Walking distance to Chinatown, Central market and Pasar Seni train station (where you can board the Go KL free bus to the Bukit Bintang area). The hotel is close to fast food chain, coffee shop, and restaurants...and even pharmacies for medical supplies. For the service, comfort and location we highly recommend to those looking for a budget hotel near Chinatown."

"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. "

"I booked the Superior Plus Room from 26 Oct to 29 Oct (Deepavali Weekend). Overall, it is a new or refurbished hotel with friendly and welcoming staff. It is located conveniently near BTS or KLCC or Pavillion and other shopping destination Via Grab. But it is a walkable distance if you wish to take their train. It is also near Chinatown and other eateries like KFC and 7 Eleven. This hotel wins in terms of location and convenience. The room was spacious and everything seems to be in order. No complaints here on the room and bathroom. However, I was not pleased with the hotel for not providing housekeeping on the third day. I informed the check-in counter staff for housekeeping before heading out and when I got back to my room, it wasn't done. I surfaced this to the staff during the check-out and the reason gave was lack of manpower. I think it is a minor issue and I hope they would be efficient just to do a quick tidy up and change towels and provide the toothbrushes."

"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. "

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.
