Hotels in Kuala Lumpur

Hotels in Kuala Lumpur are some of the finest you’ll find in Asia. Nicknamed “The Garden City of Lights”, Kuala Lumpur means “muddy confluence”, as it sits at the confluence of the Gombak and Klang rivers. Known for its impressive skyline, its cuisine, its malls and its incredible natural surroundings, the Kuala Lumpur area is home to such wonders as Batu Caves, which date back 400 million years. Though moderately conservative, Kuala Lumpur is a Muslim region. Women travelers should have no problem wearing dresses out in public or bikinis at the beach, though it’s best to adhere to more reserved behavior.  Many of the hotels in Kuala Lumpur found below truly offer incredible glimpses onto this major Malaysian metropolis. Before we get to hotels in Kuala Lumpur, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.

Although it is unknown who founded Kuala Lumpur, history suggests that it developed via tin mining along the Selangor River. During the early-to-mid 1800s, the area became a small hamlet, facing a number of adversities such as malaria, cholera, fire and flooding. Serious infliction ensued, which caused the settlement to be rebuilt a few times. Early Chinese and Malay settlements were set up along the Klang River’s east bank. In 1882, Sir Frank Swettenham, a British colonial administrator, was appointed Resident of Kuala Lumpur. Swettenham proved highly competent in developing the area into a major urban center, boosting earnings from the tin, coffee and tobacco trades by constructing a railway from Kuala Lumpur to the port of Klang. Kuala Lumpur expanded rapidly in the 1900s, largely due to rubber production. In 1957, when Tunku Abdul Tahman and the United Malays National Organisation took control of the area by way of the Malayan Declaration of Independence, Malaysia gained independence from British rule.

Commonly known as KL and officially known as the Federal Territory of Kuala, Kuala Lumpur is the largest city and national capital of Malaysia. Today, Kuala Lumpur draws in over 9 million tourists per year, making it one of the most traveled cities in the world. With an estimated population of over 1.7 million people, The Garden City of Lights is less inhabitated than many other major Asian cities. Located near Malaysia’s west coast, the city’s most popular tourist activity is arguably shopping. Temperatures remain fairly consistent throughout the year, staying at about 90 degrees, while low temperatures range in the mid-70s. Main attractions include Petronas Towers, Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Central Market, Petaling Street, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur Tower, National Palace, National Museum, Aquaria KLCC, Suria KLCC, Titiwangsa Lake Gardens, Petronas Philharmonic Hall and Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre. KL’s events include Malaysia International Gourmet Festival and Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week. Kuala Lumpur FA is the city’s professional football club that plays its games at Kuala Lumpur Stadium. Malaysia’s most beloved dish is Nasi lemak, a rice dish cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaves. Ikan bakar, or charcoal-grilled fish, Char kway teow, which are flat noodles stir-fried with shrimp, sausage, oyster sauce, bean sprouts, chives, soy sauce and other ingredients and Roti canai, a type of flatbread are also popular. Teh tarik, a hot milk tea beverage, is one of the area’s most popular drinks. Now that we have a little background information on the city, it’s time for hotels in Kuala Lampurthat that will help make for an unforgettable trip.

  1. You’ve given a very great amount of references. The photos are also pretty astounding. It amazes me how much we can see and live in the world today. From luxury bathhouses to inspiring views, there’s no stopping the creative minds of humanity and what we can do. Jalan Conlay’s needle point building reminds me of the same building structure around Niagara Falls and Seattle, Washington. 

    1. Adam you are totally right! Infrastructure and technology have advanced at such a rapid rate, and it will be interesting to see what the short-term future holds.

  2. I love this website!!!    Yesterday I came across this site when I was planning a vacation to Cape Town, South Africa.   Those pent houses were gorgeous and I loved the views.   My son wanted me to consider Malaysia instead.   This selection of luxury pent houses does not disappoint.  

    My son would appreciate the city views.   These pent houses match his preferences.   However you have provided enough information that I can tell that I prefer Cape Town instead.   Thank you for making a website were it is very easy to find information on the Pent  houses that are  available.  

  3. These vacation residences are simply stunning! And the views of Kuala Lumpur are spectacular. The descriptions of the hotel suites and the surrounding amenities provided a good feel for these areas. 

    My favorite hotel suite was the Penthouse KLCC. I loved that deck that was sheltered above yet offered expansive City Centre views. I also liked Lanson Place for its two story accommodations and high ceilings. 

    Petronas Towers are icons for their fascinating architecture. In fact, there are so many modern buildings in Kuala Lumpur.

    Can you share a few words on the historic areas of the city where one can find traditional shopping and restaurants?

    I had no idea that Kuala Lumpur had a Philharmonic Orchestra. That was fantastic. Now I want to visit Malaysia! 

  4. Oh! I love the garden at Penthouse on 34! The view is incredible! And the fact that it’s 0.5 miles away from the Bank Negara Malaysia Museum and Art Gallery makes it perfect for us. I have already taken a virtual 360° museum tour at their website, but I can’t wait to go there in person. Thank you very much for highlighting this penthouse.

  5. All these pictures of hotels present in Kuala Lumpur are lovely and eye catching. Malaysia is a very nice place to go for tourism and education. I have two friends presently studying nursing in one of the reputable university in Malaria. They do send many mind blowing pictures of different amazing places they have visited to me. Am sure they would know the best among these hotel you have listed. This list would be very helpful for someone like me that might be going to kaula Lumpur for the first time. 

  6. Wow, thank you for sharing this. I really love the list because it’s valuable to check out myself just in case if I will visit Malaysia some other time. It’s really cool to review this list again if I will do visit the country. 

    Because of that, I highly recommend your post since I never knew I could stay in these hotels less than $50 (the cheapest options) per night. Amazing. 

  7. Funny enough, my family and I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental the last time we took a trip to Malaysia. We stayed in many Mandarin Orientals in many countries we’ve been and it’s kind of an inside joke that we compare each Mandarin Oriental we’ve stayed at. I’m glad it’s on this list because it was pretty nice 🙂

    1. Ann thank you so much for your insights! Mandarin is a top-notch hotel no matter where you are. Thank you again for stopping by and hope to see you back soon 🙂

  8. You are right that Kuala Lumpur has some beautiful options for enjoying a luxurious stay in an exciting world-class city. I have many friends there, and they are always trying to convince me to come for a longer stay than a quick stopover so I can take the time to enjoy the visit properly.

    I will do that at some point but when I do the place I prefer to overnight it will also be one that will itself provide some positive memories for the trip. The options that you have located and reviewed here are all worthy candidates in my eyes and any would do for me.

    One thing that hit me as I was going through each for the features and the amenities that you will get access to was the extremely reasonable price that each will cost. Compared to some of the other cities that I have visited the costs are remarkably low for what you get. 

    Thanks for doing the heavy lifting for us when it comes to finding a super nice place to stay when in Kuala Lumpur, you have made some excellent suggestions. It is no wonder that I keep coming back to check out your advice and recommendations! They are wonderful! 

  9. Hey Hey Malaysian here!

    I’ve been to all of these hotels and residences, in fact, I pass through them almost every week on business meetings and events and I can definitely vouch that you’ve got those top-notch stays right! From a citizen’s point of view (Since I’ve been to all of them), all the other places mentioned such as The FACE suite and Regalia has a beautiful overall view of the Twin Towers.

    But Mandarin Oriental has the best location of all, it’s exactly beside the Twin Towers and the Convention Centre that you can go there from the hotel itself! When KLCC does an event at their exhibition centre, the whole of KL will get congested because it’s the second biggest convention centre in Malaysia. But if you stay at Mandarin Oriental, you can save a lot of time because it’s literally beside the convention centre itself. You’ll literally arrive at the centre the moment you step foot outside!

    The food’s good and I usually book there on New Year’s eve to have the best view of fireworks since KLCC will usually host it in their park which is again, beside the Mandarin Oriental. And just to let you guys know, this is not a sponsored comment, I just love it there so I’m super excited to see my hang out place on the blog 😀

    1. Riaz thank you for your insights! So glad to see you again and to hear that these hotels hit home. They are all really beautiful and you should be proud to live in such an equally beautiful place 🙂

  10. Thank you so much for recommending this penthouses in Malaysia. I am planning to go there with my family and we haven’t found a suitable accommodation for us. The Penthouse KLCC is absolutely our choice to go. Beautiful view, affordable price, and its location is near Petronas Twin Tower. I will tell my family and book this penthouse as soon as possible. Thank you so much.

  11. Awesome penthouse! I love Malaysia because, they mix luxury and affordability and these penthouse are just another proof, $17, really ridiculous!!

    And all of the penthouses you selected are we located, always near businesses to help us tourist to by whatever need and to get in contact with the locals. This will help to make news friends and learn the local culture.

    Thanks for another great discovery.

  12. I enjoyed coming back you your website, but I think you might cost me some money. Now I want to plan a trip to Malaysia. It’s interesting how the value of money is so different in every country. If some of those Malaysia suites were in Dubai, they would probably cost $2000 a night or more.

    My first choice was the Banyon because of how the bedroom was situated with such a spectacular view, but on looking further I see that it has no kitchenette which is important to me when I travel.

    So my next choice would be the Penthouse KLCC.   $188 a night for the presidential penthouse suite?  What a bargain. I paid more for a three-star hotel in Manhattan. I rest my case about the difference in price between countries.

    Surprising to me that the Banyan is $673 a night and Penthouse LJCC is only $188 with more amenities. I can’t quite figure that one out. Maybe it has to do with location.

    I really enjoy your website and hope you do a post on Bali and Singapore sometime. I had a holiday booked for two weeks in Bali years ago and before I could leave, there was a bombing in a night club there and the Canadian government listed it as a no travel zone for safety reasons. I should’ve gone anyway. Probably would’ve been the only one in my hotel and would’ve been treated like a king.

    1. Ray hah! It is interesting to see how currency differs in various parts of the world. Malaysia is one of the better ones for getting bang for your buck. Please feel free to check out Singapore here and key an eye out for easier navigation through the website coming soon.

  13. I love Kuala Lumpur. It is a city full of character on its own. The Petronas Twin Towers still dominate its skyline fora very good reason. It is synonymous with Malaysia. I often stay with friends and or relatives when going in KL. I have never tried these hotels, but it is deffinitely worth trying out. Looks like Mandarin Oriental is good choice.

  14. Staying at hotels and penthouse in a vacay is indeed convenient for the family or groups. All, if not most of your needs will be attended to which is great because you want your travels stress free and enjoyable. Kuala Lumpur is one of the places to be in Asia. While it’s great, there are still some things you may want to consider during vacation, just like any other country. 

    Your hotel and penthouse suggestion are all awesome. It’a modern but still exude the Asian vibe. Among the ones you presented, I think I like the Penthouse KLCC . For one, it’s affordable with the basic package included. Who wouldn’t want to experience looking at the spectacular view, right? The FACE suites however, is in the luxurious-affordable bracket and having an infinity pool is a plus. Since it’s close to the airport,  You never have to worry of getting there in time. Thanks for showing us these amazing hotels and penthouses. It makes planning for travel easier.

  15. I was thinking about visiting Kuala Lumpur in a few months from now with my girlfriend and another couple and we were looking for a nice place to stay in the city.

    This Fraser Place seems awesome as well as pretty affordable. But it’s kind of far from the airport.

    Do you know if there are any buses that go directly from the airport somewhere near this hotel?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

  16. Hello ,

    You have created a wonderful site. This article is so useful for me and my friends. We are under discussion to make a long trip to Asia and in particular to Malaysia. When I visited your site I felt impatient to visit Kuala Lumpur. 

    I think that Penthouse KLCC would be the most ideal for us. It’s located near the most popular attractions of the city, and especially the Petronas Twin Towers, I would always like to visit. The price is very very good.

      Thanks a lot. 


  17. Wow there are so many amazing places, And the pictures are spectacular. I wish i lived in something as nice as these. What I can’t get over are the prices per night. Most of these are extremely reasonable. and on par with lower quality hotels here in the usa price wise. I’ve been looking for somewhere to take the family to for vacation where they could enjoy themselves and feel like they live in luxury for a while. Thanks to you I think I know where our next vacation will be! Thanks for all the great information!!!

  18. Hi Pentrental

    All I can say is AMAZING! every time I  see a post of yours. They are very informative and the pictures are out of this world. Any world traveler needs to see your site.

    The reader doesn’t have to guess what they have to pay per night you make it very clear. You give people options as well. Well done again!

    Much Success


  19. Wow that first photo is really amazing with a spiral staircase and everything. There was actually a song when I was young that had the word Kuala Lumpur in it. As always I like the first one because of the fitness center. Is that some kind of AstroTurf on the ground? That could be nice as opposed to other kinds of floors. I like that one because you get to Lookout off of the Rooftop. Thanks for all these great travel ideas and inspiring me to want to travel.

    1. Jen great question. It is turf yes, so if that’s something that interests you then all the better to go along with the fitness center. Thank you for the comments and hope to see you back again soon!

  20. Hi Pentrental,

    When I think of booking a hotel in KL, your article just jumped out from my search on google. It’s so on time and I have to say your article gives some good suggestion for my trip.

    Love the idea you provided ranging from cheap accommodation to luxury hotels, it could be benefits to all kinds of travelers. I am over the age of backpacker that we see quite often in Southeast Asia, but I sometimes like to try the hostel experiences.

    I think I will go for Mandarin Oriental this time since it’s right in CBD and close to every spot that my family wanna visit. 

    Thanks a lot, 


    1. Thank you Matt! Glad to see you found us on Google and that you found a very nice choice in Mandarin Oriental 😀

  21. This is quite astonishing I must confess. These hotels are simy the best one can ask for, considering the services its quite worth the amount you pay. I’m involved in processing visa for people and I have lots of customers who travels to Malaysia lot. From this moment I’ll make sure these hotels are top listed when I suggest an hotel for then to lodge in. I’m glad to have come across this wonderful post. 

  22. Oh my God. This is the peak of luxury. Starting with the beautiful view of that awesome penthouse at penthouse at 24 is awesome. Knowing that it is close to the Galleria and the museum is perfect for anyone that is going for a vacation. If I wasn’t already on a vacation, I would definitely go to Kuala Lumpur. The views in this beautiful city in Malaysia is awesome and I love the feel of luxury I get from the pictures.

  23. This hotel residents are really stunning beautiful i must say… I’m planning my next vacation for Malaysia and I think I have found what suites my style and preference. my love for classical peripherals and top notch things, one of the Kuala Lumpur hotels would have to host me for my vacation. The view of this residents are so beautiful and great without doubt and I yet to pick from the list of recommendations by this review. I must say a big thank you for recommending one if the best in the world for me and my family. Kudos, and I hope to see more of your posts.

  24. Hi there,

    Wow, beautiful hotels!  I am planning to go to Malaysia next year with my children. I still didn’t make any reservation so far. I always wait until the last minute. Sometimes they are great deals:) I didn’t know there were such beautiful hotels to stay. I need something affordable that offer comfort, and that looks nice. I really like 1020, Jalan  Sultan  Ismall. This one seems to be the perfect hotel for us.$53 per night looks unreal for what you get. Is the price remain the same or it fluctuate with the season? I can’t wait to get there:)

    Thank you for this excellent post!

    1. Daniella thank you so much. The price shouldn’t change too much, but please try to book as far in advance as possible to get the best price. Happy travels to you and your children 😊

  25. I have been wanting to visit Kuala Lumpur since the Petronas Towers were completed many years ago. I cannot even imaging the views from the tallest heights of the building! Renting a penthouse seems like a “must-do” in this town of dazzling skylines. The Weld seems like a fantastic location with a balcony with dreamy views!

    1. Aly nice to see you again and thanks for the comments on these Kuala Lumpur hotels. Renting a penthouse in KL gives you a chance to really appreciate the city’s skyline. You are correct in saying that the area near The Weld shopping mall is a fantastic location as you can also find Aquaria KLCC and KLCC Park in the area.
