More About Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Hotels...

Sleep in the Shadow of the Petronas Twin Towers

If, like the majority of travelers, you arrive in Malaysia at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, it's just a 15-minute, RM 35 (approximately $10) ride on a KLIA Express train to the heart of the city. With the Petronas Twin Towers – two of the tallest buildings in the world – looming over you, make a beeline for the Kuala Lumpur hotel of your choice, whether you select Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Grand Millennium Lumpur, or Melia Kuala Lumpur. Even if you don't make it up to the towers' 86-story observation deck, you'll still feel energized as you bask in their futuristic glow.

Aside from the Petronas towers, Kuala Lumpur isn't as full of traditional tourist attractions as other Southeast Asian capitals, but there's still a whole world for you to discover once you arrive. Explore mosques like Masjid Jamek and Masjid Negara, relax underneath the National Monument in the Lake Gardens, or eat your way through exciting ethnic neighborhoods like Chinatown and Little India. 

Kuala Lumpur Airport Hotels

It's easy to get from KLIA into the heart of KL (a nickname locals often use in place of the name "Kuala Lumpur"), but there are plenty of reasons you might want to stay in Kuala Lumpur airport hotels such as Sama-Sama Hotel*, Tune Hotel KLIA2*, or City View Hotel Sepang*. For one, Kuala Lumpur International Airport is one of Asia's premier air hubs, which makes a nearby hotel the perfect place to get work done before jetting off to some far-off locale. Concorde Inn KLIA*, a business-friendly just minutes from the airport, even offers free round-trip airport transportation.

KLIA's location in Selangor is also convenient to Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia's Formula 1 race track, so if you happen to be in town for a race, you won't want to sleep far from the airport. When you stay at Sepang budget hotels like Ramah Putih Bed and Breakfast*, The youniQ Hotel*, or Sri Enstek Hotel*, you won't need to race for the entrance to the race track – it's practically at your doorstep!

The Best Kuala Lumpur Day Trips

What Kuala Lumpur's central business district lacks in blatant tourist appeal, it makes up for with its proximity to some of Malaysia's most exciting destinations. Take a day trip to Batu Caves, for example, to visit one of the largest shrines outside of India. You'll feel like you're in another country, but you've traveled just 8 miles, which means you can get back to Kuala Lumpur budget hotels like Royale Chulan Kuala Lumpur, Anggun Boutique Hotel, or Micasa All-Suite Hotel in time to catch sunset over the city.

Alternatively, another amazing place to watch the sunset near Kuala Lumpur is Putrajaya, which has been Malaysia's seat of government since 1999. Marvel at the rose-colored Putra Mosque as the sun teases you with hues of pink, purple, and orange, and learn the story of Malaysia as you walk through the outdoor museum that surrounds its minaret.

Kuala Lumpur is Yours With Airbnb

Malaysian hospitality makes it easy to feel at home in Kuala Lumpur, but why not take it one step further by renting an Airbnb apartment? With more than 1,000 properties to choose from and prices starting at just 33 USD per night it's a great alternative to Kuala Lumpur luxury hotels – and even better, you often have a local host at your disposal! Choose an ordinary studio or condominium, or take advantage of more unique options, such as "Award-Winning Steampunk Loft," which offers you a panoramic view and a private rooftop bar for rates as low as 118 USD per night.

Cheap Hostels in Kuala Lumpur

If it's a cheap sleep you're after, another way to get it in Malaysia's capital is to book a stay in a Kuala Lumpur hostel. You'll spend pennies on the dollar when you book dormitory beds at Kuala Lumpur Hostels like Reggae Mansion Kuala Lumpur and Step Inn Guest House and Hostel, while even private rooms at Sunshine Beds KL* and the Explorers Guest House and Hostel will cost you less even a budget hotel room in Kuala Lumpur.

When to Get the Best KL Hotel

Like the rest of Southeast Asia, Kuala Lumpur has two seasons – wet and dry – so you'll want to time your stay based on your priorities. While weather is more pleasant from May to September, especially if you plan to visit world-class Malaysian beach island Langkawi during your stay, you'll also deal with higher rates, so avoid visiting during this time if it's a steal you're after. Indeed, you'll need to carry an umbrella with you if you come from October to April, but with the amount of money you save on your Kuala Lumpur hotel, you'll be able to buy several from salespeople on KL's streets.
