Sohotown Hotel
Ranked #257 of 347 Hotels in Kuala Lumpur
Reviewed 26 August 2012

32 inch LCD TV with a couple of English channels...attached bathroom with rain shower head for a great hot shower...electric kettle and mugs in the room...helpful lady receptionist selected a quiet room for us with cold air-con straight up the elevator...this joint is close to everything right in the heart of Chinatown and at RM 88 and well away from the noisy dirty backpacker hoards is definitely good for a stay! The internet a tad slow the only bother...

Room Tip: On a very hot day the smaller rooms with just a couple of small windows the best bet...

After spending 2 hours and looking at every single hostel and budget hotels in the area, we decided to stay in Sohotown Hotel. It was an excellent choice. Clean rooms nicely furnished with lovely strong hot showers and Wi-Fi. We had a room service, given clean towels, shower gel, shampoo every day by a lovely cleaning lady. Also the ladies at the reception were very friendly and chatty. We had a great staying at Sohotown and definitely the best budget option was at the time!

we didn't book this hotel but one further up the road, so disappointed with it we came out and found this gem !! Prices and photos outside so you know what you get. Very comfortable room, outstanding shower, no complaints whatsoever. Right on Petaling Street itself next door to KFC, everything right on the doorstep if you want the bargains.

Room Tip: window rooms are noisy but it didn't bother me as I'm deaf !!

We were one of the lucky guys who could spend the opening night in this hotel. So we were the first ones sleeping in our room ever. The room was pretty small but furnished really nicely. Also the bathroom was very pleasant with a nice big shower. We felt very comfortable. The value of this hotel is excellent and the staff was super friendly. I hope, this new hotel keeps it's standard!
