Cheap hotel in Kuala Lumpur and Chinatown

Arriving from Thailand to Malaysia, we had tomoderate their appetites in terms of hotels. Here somehow everything went up at once. Judging by the booking systems, prices start from 60-70 RM (600-700 rubles) for a double (everything is very convenient to RoomGuru watch). There are singles, there are dormitory (dormitory) with beds, which will be cheaper. But in any case, for this minimum money you get only the bare minimum.

So, the cheapest and budget hotelsKuala Lumpur is located in Chinatown. This is such a Chinese quarter, where strangely enough Chinese live. Well, not only live, still work, relax, create a crowd, clutter, and garbage.

Many who stayed in Chinatown,swore at the fact that it was very difficult to get to the hotel in the evening, when the market turned around, and the noise from the shopkeepers outside the window. This is primarily about Petaling Street - the central street of Chinatown, where all this action takes place.

Our City Hotel

We were lucky with our hotel in this regard. Although it was located on Petaling Street in Chinatown, it was located at the beginning of this street, where there are no shopping malls, and, accordingly, it is possible to pass without problems and the noise does not interfere. From the metro station Pasar Seni walk five minutes.

Also, the noise does not interfere, also because the windows inno rooms. More precisely in ours was not. And either the rooms with windows are more expensive, or there are just very few of them. That, in principle, does not exclude each other. In fact, the windows are not needed if you only go there for the night. However, the humidity in the building is very high, and it can only be controlled with an air conditioner, which we did, trying to dry the washed things.

Price and reservation

Standart Double or Twin - 88RM. Superior 1 Double + 1 Single Beds - 118RM.

In the City Hotel

we lived at the same time in the standard for 70 RM, becausewhen booking online there were discounts on this number. True, we booked it this way only for 2 days, and then extended it for another two days already in place, having agreed for 78 RM, which is still cheaper. So here you can try to throw off the price.

Be sure (and I insist) check availabilitydiscounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. He will quickly and simply show you discounts on the hotel you need in different booking systems. In Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com that are much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels on Booking.com.

The cheapest and budget - hotel Oasis

Right across from the City Hotel is the Oasis Hotel.Guest House, which, judging by the reviews, is the cheapest here. We met a Russian guy from China, who just lived here, and went to visit him.

Price and reservation

The prices for doubles here are 25 RM (250 rubles) with a fan, and 40 RM (400 rubles) with air conditioning. Book here.

Despite the fact that the owner told us that the rooms diverge like hot buns, when we had free rooms.

Interior

Most of all it looks like a hostel or guesthouse,where everything is to a minimum, but there is a common room, with a TV, a small kitchen and a common refrigerator. All a little dirty and old, but the price is appropriate. Internet - free Wifi, worked fine.

The rooms have nothing but beds. Toilets and showers are on the floor and shared. In general, if you are not a demanding person or student, this place will suit you.

Chinatown Chinatown

All the action in Chinatown starts closerby the evening - the empty street becomes a noisy and crowded market, which is quite difficult to pass. There is a small hint - in order to get through Petaling Street quickly, you need to walk not along the street itself, but clinging to the buildings, there seems to be a corridor, where almost no one is.

In addition to trays with gear, turn around andThere are all kinds of tea. I honestly did not like the food there, not only is it not cheap, it’s also somehow dirty there. I am now more a lover of Thai cuisine. Tea is also not a fountain, especially dark, more like a mixture of potions.

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
