Hotels: The Chinatown Boutique Hotel, KL

This is where H and I stayed during our KL visit. It’s clean, it’s safe and it’s right in the center of Chinatown. Very accessible via taxis and buses. The LRT is just a couple of blocks away. It’s also a short walking distance  from the Central Market. Highly recommended! Oh, and it’s affordable, too.  A DeLuxe Double Room will cost you RM110 or roughly Php1,500/night. If you’re sharing the room with a friend, that’s Php750/night! Not bad at all!


All rooms come with a flat screen TV and free Wi-Fi

  1. Hi Polmangilog. I believe those who plan to visit Kuala Lumpur for the first time will benefit from this post especially if they are looking to stay in a budget hotel of this city.
    The nearest LRT Stations to Chinatown KL are Plaza Rakyat and Masjid Jamek LRT Station.
    The area around Masjid Jamek or Jalan Masjid India which are located not far from this Boutique Hotel also have budget hotels… if the travelers don’t want to stay around Chinatown.
    Polmangilog, Welcome to Kuala Lumpur.
