We have 18 places to stay in and around Kuala Lumpur.
Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown, along with nearby Pudu, has long been the city’s hub for budget accommodation but the scene is slowly edging upmarket. On the streets of Chinatown, along with Little India just to the north, you’ll find some of KL’s yummiest eating (and, at least in Chinatown, affordable boozing).
Kuala Lumpur has two “Little India” districts and this one, immediately north of Chinatown, has by far the better selection of budget to mid-range accommodation when compared to Brickfields (the second “Little India”) over near KL Sentral. The South Asian eating here is outstanding, but, with a couple of exceptions if you want a drink or three, the ten minute walk south to Chinatown is a good call.
Running along the west side of Bukit Nanas and filling an area between Little India to the south and Kampung Baru to the north, this area has a good and luxurious spot to stay along with some excellent eating. Public transport is a bit of a hike, but is a good way to work off all those noodles.
