It is really hard to find an affordable but central and at the same time comfortable place to stay in Kuala Lumpur. I spent sooo much time on researching all kind of budget places and could not be happier after I found Sohotown Hotel in the heart of Chinatown, just a couple of steps away from Puduraya bus station and the blessings of Malay streetfood and famous Petaling Street. Perfect!
Oke, the rooms do not have proper windows (just small ones towards the corridor), but this is absolutely common all over Malaysia and you will not find otherwise unless you pay a lot more. Otherwise the rooms are nicely furnished, spacious enough and clean. The hotel is fairly new as well, which adds up to the over all neat impression.
Staff at the 24 hour reception is very helpful and knowledgeable (unless you ask the night guard at 3am about getting a receipt for your stay ;-)).
