Kuala Lumpur Hotels Guide

The hotels below have been classed into four different pricing categories:
$$$$ (over RM600)
$$$ (RM450 to RM600)
$$ (RM250 to RM450)
$ (up to RM250)
These prices are the starting prices for a standard double room per night and include sales tax but not service charge. Breakfast is not included, unless otherwise specified.

A sales tax of 5% and a service charge at 10% are added to the bill in most hotels in Kuala Lumpur. Additional tips are not necessary, although it is perfectly acceptable to tip the porter at more expensive hotels.
