Hotel Pudu Plaza
Ranked #147 of 349 Hotels in Kuala Lumpur
Reviewed 27 March 2014

If you want to stay in a place where you get a real feel for KL, this is it. As of this writing, it is only 2 months old. The place is new and sparkling clean. The rooms are very basic, but very comfortable. Nice, big, soft bed. Wall-mounted 37" LCD with a couple of English language channels. (BBC and something else.) If you bring your own HDMI cable, you can display your computer on it. Well-lit desk area with a comfy chair and lots of power outlets. Good sized closet with small bureau and a hidden digital safe that is large enough to hold a laptop, as well as you other things. Basic snack nook with small fridge, hot pot, and in-room coffee. Big luggage stand. The air conditioner is very effective and quiet. The bathroom is spartan, but nice. Everything is new. Big granite sink counter and mirror. Huge glass shower stall with rapid hot water heater. (Wish we had these in the U.S..) They provide nice towels, soap, body wash, and shampoo.) Like most Asian hotels, no carpeting. Tile and laminate floor. The free broadband is good, but at times in hung-up. Still...I'd say its the best $29/night room I've ever had/

What the hotel lacks in amenities, it makes up for with location. The hotel is connected to the 3-floor Pudu Plaza. This mall has most things you could want, or need. There's a full grocery store, lots of clothing, lots of food, a couple of pharmacies, an awesome camera store, a hardware store, tailors, jewelry, music, tea shops, a diner, shoes, trinkets, a copy shop, a stationary store, etc.

There are scores of eating places within 1-3 minutes walk from the front door. But, be aware that they are authentic eateries. Many are sidewalk restaurants. Some are under-roof. Almost none are typical of Western restaurants. (No restrooms, no napkins, etc.) Some don't have English speaking staff, but if that happens, just walk over to another one. Its worth it. The food is AWESOME. Authentic, fresh, cheap, safe, and delicious. In the past few nights, I've eaten some of the best Thai, Chinese, and Indian I've ever had. Some of these street carts make fried chicken that any Southern chef would be proud of. (Directly across the street from the hotel lobby is a little sidewalk restaurant that makes incredible Thai food. Most lunches and dinners cost about $2.50.)

The walk to Pudu subway station is about 7-8 minutes. The walk to the Berjaya Times Square area (which is shopping mall haven) is about 15 minutes.

Check in just to try the hotel since its just did it soft opening a day ago. Rate from Agoda is worth wile instead of walk in. Staff is all fresh and new in the hotel industry, which was still trying to understand what service is all about, so don't expect much service from them, that's why they requested RM150.00 for a deposit upon check in which I think it a bit high. Hotel is attached to a small Mall with supermarket. Lobby and corridor full with contractor and workers for a final touch up. Standard room was spacious even without a window. Nothing much to say about the room since its all new. TV only have a few channels which could be better and the AC is without a control, adjustment has to be done manually. Iron and board upon request. Empty mini bar is in the room but since it in a cub board it is always warm. No restaurant in house but a lots of street stalls around if you don't mind on the cleanliness and hygiene. Exactly in front of the hotel at the door of 7-11 there is a chines stall serving delicious steam fish and chinese food. Walking distance to LRT station and Bukit Bintang by using back street short cut road. Taxi is no issue, and walking distance to bus stops, banks, electrical shops and main wet market which you could find a lot of interesting local products.

Room Tip: Request room with window
