Kuala Lumpur is a very large city and the capital of Malaysia. The country of Malaysia is generally a conservative place but there is still plenty of nightlife and entertainment around. Since most of the better (and worse) hotels in KL have no prohibition against customers bringing guests back to their rooms I’ll list here some of the better options. All of these hotels are listed in the same area because it’s the best place for visitors to stay.
Guest Friendly Hotels Kuala Lumpur
The best guest-friendly hotels in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Hotel Sentral Pudu ★★★ $24 avg/night
No. 310 Jalan Pudu, Pudu, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The Hotel Sentral Pudu is the most inexpensive hotel on this list. Great for people who don’t want to shell out a lot of money the hotel is still well-run. It’s also centrally located and only a short walk from the well-known Bukit Bintang strip. The immediate area of the hotel is filled with eateries, shopping outlets, and massage shops.
The Sentral Pudu isn’t the most lavish hotel in the city by any means but for the price paid that only makes sense. The hotel is completely tolerant of guests bringing friends to their rooms.
Federal Hotel Kuala Lumpur ★★★★ $50 avg/night
35 Jalan Bukit Bintang, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The Federal Kuala Lumpur is one of the older hotels around but it’s also one of the nicest and most centrally located. There are all sorts of entertainment within walking distance of the hotel. Places beyond walking distance are easily reached by taxi and they are easy to get right in front of the hotel. There’s even a large spa on the ground floor. Check-in is a breeze and the staff provides good customer service without being intrusive.
The Federal Hotel is completely guest friendly though that’s sort of a moot point. An elevator bank on the ground floor just inside the entrance means that customers don’t have to pass by the front desk when going in and out of their rooms.
Invito Hotel Suites ★★★★ $63 avg/night
No.1, Lorong Ceylon, Bukit Ceylon, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The four-star Invito Hotel Suites is consistently one of the best-reviewed hotels in Kuala Lumpur and there’s a good reason for that. Although it’s not right on Jalan Bukit Bintang it is centrally located. There’s tons of nightlife and entertainment only a short walk from the hotel and everything else can be reached by taxi or public transportation.
A twenty-four hour front desk is helpful. The swimming pool and gym are both nice and well-maintained. Perhaps most importantly, the hotel is guest friendly and the staff is generally good at minding its own business.
