E&O Residences Kuala Lumpur
Chances are once you spend a night in these elegantly designed apartments with their clean-line furnishings and striking contemporary art you will not want to leave. There's a good gym and large outdoor pool in the landscaped courtyard garden...
Fraser Place Kuala Lumpur
Good workspaces and walk-in closets feature in these colourfully designed apartments. The facilities, including an outdoor infinity pool, gym, sauna and games room, are top notch.
Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral
Designed for the Google generation of young creatives, Aloft is industrial chic meets plastic fantastic. Staff are super friendly and you have to smile at the witty cartoon art in each of the spacious, well-designed rooms...
The Yard Boutique Hotel
A backstreet hostel has been transformed into this calm, stylish oasis steps away from both the eats of Jln Alor and the bars of Changkat Bukit Bintang. Contemporary design rooms are very comfy and great value for what they offer...
The bulk of the rooms here are fine but no-frills. However, the 7th floor offers 17 creatively designed duplexes, each sleeping three, with fun themes ranging from Marilyn Monroe to circus; it features a sawn-in-half classic mini as part of the decor!
Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur
Elevators whisk you up to a panoramic entrance lobby that pits you eye to eye with the upper levels of the Petronas Towers...
Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur
The views are good either way, but it’s probably worth paying the small supplement for a room facing the Petronas Towers at this contemporary-design addition to KL’s portfolio of luxe hotels. Its rooftop pool and bar is a famous KL hang-out.
Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur
The Prince offers outstanding value for its modern, cream-coloured rooms. Some nice facilities include a kids’ club, and its serviced apartments are good for long-term stays.
The Royale Bintang Kuala Lumpur
Stylish property offering spacious, comfortable rooms (with high-speed internet access, cable TV, complimentary newspaper), a bar, restaurant, and reasonable-sized gym and pool.
Pacific Regency Hotel Suites
These upmarket self-catering studios and serviced apartments are good value compared with the rooms of a similar standard at KL's other five-star properties. Ask to see the newer rooms...
Bintang Warisan Hotel
Attractive small hotel with a pre-Independence façade but modern rooms.
The Westin Kuala Lumpur
The Westin's spacious rooms are modern and appealing and it's easy to see why long-term residents love its serviced apartments with their full kitchens and glassed-in balconies. It also has a good gym and stylish restaurants and bars.
Sarang Vacation Homes
Michael and Christina run this appealing bed-and-breakfast operation. They have houses, apartments and rooms for rent in five nearby locations. The furnishings are a bit worn, but the vibe is relaxed and welcoming and the location is excellent...
Anggun Boutique Hotel
Two 1920s shophouses have been combined to create this antique-style, boutique property that’s a welcome addition to a busy strip. The rooftop restaurant and bar is a leafy oasis hung with twinkling lights...
The 5 Elements Hotel
Offering a good range of rooms, some with views towards KL Tower, this hotel makes a credible stab at boutique stylings. We particularly liked the sensuous design motif snaking its way across the corridor and bedroom walls.
Occupying a smartly renovated, yellow-painted shophouse on the southern edge of the Golden Triangle, this is a retro-charming choice with dorms and private rooms, a small grassy garden and welcoming staff...
The Explorers Guesthouse
Another of the new backpackers giving the Chinatown oldies a hiding. Explorers follows up a comfy, spacious lobby with clean, airy rooms, a roof terrace, colourfully painted walls and a few arty touches.
The Green Hut Lodge
A classic traveller’s choice, complete with towel-draped 12-bed dorm, noticeboards and staff that speak Bahasa Backpacker. It’s spotless and the jungle mural on the lobby wall is rather eye-catching.
Carcosa Seri Negara
Operating in reduced circumstances (the Carcosa mansion has long been shuttered for repairs) this heritage property – once the residence of British government representative Sir Frank Swettenham – rustles up colonial elegance...
Hilton Kuala Lumpur
Sharing a fabulous landscaped pool and spa with the Meridien next door, the Hilton is a design diva’s dream...
It’s worth paying an extra RM10 at this appealing new hotel to get a room with a window. Each floor is named after a curry ingredient, but the decor is monochrome rather than spicy.
Hotel China Town Inn
Even though it’s in the thick of Chinatown, a calm atmosphere reigns at this well-managed, good-value hotel. All rooms have attached showers and TV (DVD players can be hired)...
