No wifi
Pro's: large room, blow dryer (about 10 years old), television (4 channels static), closet, central
Cons: Room is ragged, stained tub, iron shaped burn in carpet, circa 1970's room in general, ac freezes room non adjustable, no wifi, toilet was like an old car; needs three shifts to get going and leaked, breakfast is minimum, for 2 dollars (6 RM) more a day, Manderan Pacific is MUCH better and just down the street

Lobby looks posh but hotel is falling apart. Would not recommend

Malaya Hotel has been my family favourite. The hotel is very reasonably priced and it is in the heart of town (Chinatown) where there is lots of bargains, bazaar, food and eateries.
My uncle shared with us his experience during the late 60's unrest. He was sent by his company to work in KL. Unexpectedly, there was a riot. He cant go back to his hotel, which was Malaya hotel. The unrest stretched for a period of time and he had to fly home (SIngapore) empty handed. He cant go back to the hotel to fetch his belongings. He resigned to the fact that they would probably be gone and forgotten. Months later when he went back to KL and asked the Hotel management whether they have kept his stuff, they remembered him and got his suitcase with his stuff back. He was so grateful and he recommended all of us to visit this place and continue to patronise it. Our last stay there was a few years ago and we still find their services impeccable. The rooms may be slightly old but clean. They are cosy and neat. With that price, I am happy! Breakfast is a bit boring but I cant complain much.

My dad had stayed there in the 70s and at that time, Malaya was a popular hotel.
Their racking system of parking is also a novel way to look forward to when you drive and park at the hotel. We drove to KL from Singapore.
So hope the review touches a few of the hotel old patrons.
