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. "

Ramada Encore by Wyndham Chinatown Kuala Lumpur
Chinatown,Chinatown - View on map
"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."

Travelodge City Centre

"We had a pleasant stay in GEO hotel, I would say this is one of the best hotel in Chinatown area. The hotel is located in the heard of Chinatown, it was located just next to central bus and LRT terminal. It's about 2 minutes walking distance to 2 popular and renowned areas in Chinatown which was Central market and Petaling steet. Though room is rather small but it was very clean and comfy. Will definitely stay in this hotel when we visiting KL again. "

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!"

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. "

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"

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.
