This hip hotel, with an urban vibe and appealing retro design, is located steps away from Bukit Bintang's shopping and nightlife. Rooms feature blown-up prints of KL street life by local photographer Che Mat and floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the city views. The rooftop saltwater pool and bar is a plus.

A handy space for those needing to catch-up on emails is the Hub, a co-working area with power sockets, shared desk space and a coffee bar.
