The location was perfect, direct access to the chinatown markets and great eating options. Its a short walk (2-10 mins) to the LRT / Kommuter / Monorail stops - you can get all over the city very cheaply. Accommodation is budget, but its clean - its modern and comfortable. We loved the free water every day that was included in... More

Stayed here for 4 nights as part of our Malaysian honeymoon and can highly recommend this hotel. The location couldn't be better, with both the Chinatown and Kotaraya a short walk. Also the bustling nightlife of Petaling Street (Chinatown) where pirated goods stalls and restaurants are a plenty only infront this hotel. Also very close to monorail and rail stations... More

Really bad stay here !!!! We booked 1 night with Agoda, all went well until we arrived at our room to find the previous occupant had been smoking and they had tried to mask it with really bad orange air freshener, there is a window but it is sealed shut.... I went back to ask if we could move rooms... More

The hotel is at an excellent location in a shopping street in Chinatown, close to numerous food stalls. shops and restaurants, with easy access to public transportation, pleasant desk personnel, and small but pretty design rooms with flat-screen TV, toiletries, water cooker, free drinking water and hot massage shower. However, some rooms don't have a window (so ask at check-in),... More

Don't be fooled by the 3-star rating; this hotel is a simple budget spot. You get a small desk and water pot, which is a nice touch compared to other budget places, but no closet and barely a window. The room is clean though and the bathroom has a separate shower, a luxury in Southeast Asia I've discovered. The location... More

Perfect to crash of a night and knowing in the morning everything you want to do is close by. Also were else can you shower, shave and go to the toilet at the same time? Yes this... More

Chinatown Boutique Hotel has a great location as it is situated right on the heart of Chinatown, with lots of cheap good restaurants nearby. Just 3 minutes walk from the Puduraya Bus Terminal and about 5 minutes walk from the Plaza Rakyat / Pasar Seni LRT terminal. We paid RM 100 for a double room with attached bathroom and Air... More

Right in the heart of Chinatown. Great food nearby! The room was small and the tv did not work. Hot water was also not working but over all I would stay again. I was on a budget and this is a nice pick for a hotel on a budget that is not a backpacker hotel in KL.
