If you’re a city traveller who wants to explore the bustling side of Malaysia, there’s no better place to be than the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, also known as ‘KL’ to the locals.
Whether you’re here for a weekend staycation or business trip, there are many top hotels in KL to spend a night. Since options are aplenty, we’re here to save your hours of research and share some of the best hotels in KL to choose from.
W Kuala Lumpur
Part of what makes a city staycation great is a night’s stay in a swanky hotel like W Kuala Lumpur. Detailed with a bold and vibrant design that’s a reflection of Kuala Lumpur’s bustling vibe, W Hotel KL has 150 guest rooms that overlook the city skyline. Whether you’re travelling with your best friend or colleague, make yourself at home in one of their stylish rooms that are named after your first impression of the hotel such as Wonderful, Marvelous, and Spectacular.
EQ Kuala Lumpur
After spending years of redevelopment, we’re happy to see EQ Kuala Lumpur‘s return in March 2019. Step into their refurbished guest room, and you’ll be blown away by its chic and contemporary interior. Situated in the golden triangle of Kuala Lumpur, EQ Hotel KL has 440 guest rooms and suites complete with a scenic city view. After a long day of sightseeing, relax on the comfortable bed and enjoy a cup of flat white from its in-room coffee maker.
Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur
Just a 5-minute drive from KLCC, spend the night at Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur, so you won’t miss the hustle and bustle of the city. While Concorde Hotel KL primarily serves business travellers, you’re welcome to enjoy the hotel’s awesome amenities on your next weekend staycation. Besides making full use of its complimentary Wi-Fi to stay up-to-date on social media, sit back and catch up on some in-room movies or get delicious Asian and Continental meals from the hotel’s restaurants.
The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur
There’s a reason why The Majestic Hotel is one of the most classic hotels in Kuala Lumpur. This historic hotel has been around since 1932 and much of the art deco design remains from the lobby to the room decor. There are many rooms and suites available, and each is beautifully furnished with laps of luxury. It’s so gorgeous that Majestic Hotel quickly became one of the best Instagrammable hotels in KL too.
Pavilion Hotel Kuala Lumpur
Since Pavilion Hotel Kuala Lumpur is connected to the bustling Pavilion shopping mall, you have plenty of reasons to plan an exciting shopping trip in Malaysia’s capital city. After spending hours in the mall, make your way to the guest room where a comfortable bed awaits. To seal your staycation experience, we recommend getting a room with a city view, so you can experience the electrifying energy of Kuala Lumpur even after sundown. Since the Pavilion Hotel KL is also a 10-minute drive from some of the best theme parks in KL, you definitely need a good night’s sleep before you venture to the city again the next day.
Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur
Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur may be synonymous to business travel (thanks to its short distance to Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre), but the hotel’s contemporary amenities are something that leisure travellers can enjoy too. Complete with a view of Petronas Twin Towers, we recommend splurging on a room with a city view, so you’ll have an awesome scenery to wake up to.
Whether you’re travelling to Kuala Lumpur for a business trip or weekend staycation, we hope you’ve found the best hotel in KL to spend the night after exploring the sights and sounds of the capital city. Time to kick start your travel plans!
