“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

We got the hotel at 2am and were a bit worried. We walked to the mini market at the end of the street to get essentials ( rum,coke and crisps) and that was us done for the first day. The next day we walked to Berjaya Times Square and went to see the Twin Towers. The hotel is right next door to the night markets. Really good. We ate locally at the pizza place opposite. The hotel was quiet and the rooms were fine. I wish I was brave enough to eat the street food!

We spent 4 nights at swiss inn at china town. We had the room with window, costs little bit more than the rooms without. It was so worth it, try to get the ones that has a view down to shoppingstreet!

The staff was friendly, proffesional and serviceminded. Everyone from reception to housekeeping.

The breakfast was a buffet with a variety of food. Bread, and toaster, cereal, fruits, warm foods and eggs boiled and omelettes. Realy nice to start you day with decent food.

The room was nice and clean, and it was cleaned everyday with enviromental precausions being done!

Overall a good hotel experience.

My family and I stayed for 3 nights in the Swiss in and had a wonderful time! The rooms are very clean, spacious enough and the hotel staff and hotel manager are welcoming and friendly. The location was perfect too! Backed right on to the china town markets (but not noisy at night) and only a short walk the train station.
I have been to KL 6 times before this and this hotel was by far the best value for money I've ever stayed in.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks with my fiance, it was very clean & tidy place, they have different rooms as per money you pay. Different color of each floor is the interesting part to make sure you dont get lost if you get drunk! Also being @ the heart of chinese town give you easiness of shopping & many food option around. Hotel break fast also in delicious, wine shop, pool & snooker, reggae bar also are in minutes of walk. Swiss inn is also the holding of Swiss hotel which is about 15 min walk from Swiss inn you can go to use swiss hotel pool & gym for free. I recommend this hotel, it is cozy place to stay it is definitely worth the money.

Room Tip: 2nd & 3rd floor are good

I am so pleased that I chose to stay at Swiss Inn. It is located right in the heart of Chinatown, where there are crowds, and eateries, and narrow lanes with stalls to buy everything in the world. I cannot think of a better location. And, as I was there as the Chinese New Year was approaching, I also had the good fortune to watch street entertainment (lion dances, drum performances, Chinese opera, etc) right outside the door to the hotel.

Several years ago I got a bargain on a room in a 5 star hotel in KL. True the room was larger. True the breakfast was more varied. But the hotel was in a sterile neighborhood, and nothing can compensate for the lack of crowds. And so if the next time I visit KL I am offered a five star hotel at the same price as Swiss Inn, I will choose the latter.

There is no free lunch, and a three star hotel is not a five star hotel, both in definition and in fact. At Swiss Inn, the people working at reception knew me and remembered me, and were both kind and considerate. This is something I have never experienced at a large hotel.

The room was functional (I had one on one of the higher floors and as such was away from the street noise). The bathroom great. The bed most comfy. I couldn't ask for more. The buffet breakfast was both varied and tasty. Not five star, but still great.

I will definitely return.

Room Tip: A room on a higher floor is less likely to have street noise.

The Swiss Inn is situated directly in chinatown. The main entry is where all the food stalls are in the evening. Then there is another exit on the back of the hotel which leads directly into the colorful world of the nightmarket.
Upon booking I requested a corner room in one of the upper floors. It was nice that this request was followed and I ended up with the room I had in mind.
While walking from elevator one to elevator two the GM popped out of his office and gave me a little insight of the hotel. Thanks for that!
As corner rooms are a little bit bigger than normal rooms anyway, there was clearly enough space for two people. The room was spotless. The bathroom, too. Just the hot water was not really working the first day. But thats probably not directly a fault of the hotel.
The Wifi was working fine most of the time. Breakfast was good, too.
As it came to our checkout, we decided to stay two nights longer. I went down to the reception an asked for the price. The same guy who checked me in told me something of an outrageous rate. I asked him several times but he couldn't make me an better offer. No problem at all, but the way he acted during check in and while asking for the rate was unfriendly.
Next day I went down again and asked another lady. She offered me the same rate as on the first booking.
Disregarding the unfriendly guy from the reception it was a nice stay.

Room Tip: I would go for corner rooms in every hotel i book. usually more specious

Stayed here last January for 3 nights with my family. Very good location. Be it for shopping for best buys or food haunt for some local cuisine etc... Its in the heart of china town. Also near to public transport terminals. And minutes away from the iconic Twin Tower & KL tower. Value for money... Clean & well maintained standard rooms, not big thou. But overall
