Best Hotels in Kuala Lumpur for Amazing Views – Best View Hotel in KL
Now let’s take a look at the list of the best hotels in KL.
All of them offer different types of rooms that range in size, level of comfort and not only. In some cases you’ll have a view of Petronas Twin Towers and KL’s ever growing skyline right from your bed, in other cases – you’ll have that view only from bar, restaurant or for example rooftop pool. Take that into account when making a booking. For all the options, more photos, latest price and user reviews check out these hotels on Booking.com.

Where to Stay in Kuala Lumpur?
Kuala Lumpur (KL) is the capital of Malaysia, as well as its largest city.
If you are coming to Kuala Lumpur only for a short visit here are few of the best places where to stay in Kuala Lumpur: KLCC (Petronas Towers), Bukit Bintang, area of KL Sentral and, so called, Golden Triangle. I, personally, recommend Bukit Bintang and the area of KLCC as two of the best places where to stay in Kuala Lumpur.
As you can imagine, Kuala Lumpur is a big city. But it also has a reasonably good public transportation system, and taxis are affordable. So if you are coming to Kuala Lumpur for more than a few days or a week know that you can find a lot of good options as where to stay in KL. You don’t necessarily need to stay near the main tourist attractions then. Unless that’s exactly what you want.

2. Book Your Accommodation. Booking.com, Agoda.com and Airbnb. I use Booking and Agoda at least a dozen times a year, and Airbnb – when looking for a long-term stay. My best tip is to ALWAYS compare the price. Sometimes the same hotel is cheaper on Booking.com, other times – on Agoda. Always compare the price!
3. Buy Your Travel Insurance. Ekta and SafetyWings are two companies I can recommend. Ekta offers some extra benefits, that will be important for those doing some higher risk activities (make sure to choose the right plan!), while SafetyWings is better for digital nomads. SafetyWings is also very affordable.
