Downtown Kuala Lumpur
KL city center is an amalgamation of all things commercial. It's filled with soaring skyscrapers that symbolize the capital's wealth and power, like the Petronas Twin Towers and the KL Tower. Yet there's also a softer side. Families stroll in Taman Tasik Perdana, children play in Butterfly Park and the health-conscious jog in KLCC Park.

Golden Triangle encompasses several districts and has something for everyone. Find food and fashion on Bukit Bintang and Petaling Streets. Culture vultures can get crafty with traditional batik painting and basket weaving at Karyaneka. At night, find wacky nightclubs along Jalan P. Ramlee (the "clubbing street") and fist pump the night away.

KL Sentral Train Station
2.1 miles from downtown
Two reasons to stay in KL Sentral – food and connections! It's known as a transport hub, with easy links to anywhere in the city. For some great local eats, try Warong Kita or Kelantan Delights, famous for its strictly Malaysian buffet. The nearby Sooka Makan Foodcourt and Nu Sentral Mall offer an unending parade of dazzling pan-Asian flavors.

Kuala Lumpur is a city of striking contrasts with a never-ending list of things to do, see, and taste.
Packed with impressive skyscrapers, huge malls, and bustling markets, Malaysia’s capital is both a hotspot for shopping and nightlife, as well as a fusion point of ancient cultures. Malay, Chinese, Indian, Tamil, and Thai people have lived here side by side for generations – a melting pot best reflected in the local food.
Follow your nose to Petaling Street (Chinatown) for a serving of "Chili pan mee" – a noodle stir-fry of fried onions, fresh scallions, crushed peanuts, shredded pork, and a poached egg. Then head over to Brickfields (Little India) for spicy chicken curry, dosa pancakes, and all the banana fritters you can handle. Just bring a map so you don’t get lost between these lively districts.
Kuala Lumpur isn't only all about the food. The futuristic Petronas Towers are hallmarks of the Kuala Lumpur skyline, and the Islamic Arts Museum and National Museum offer a look into the city’s rich history. You can escape the city hustle in the lush Botanical Gardens, or the Batu Caves – a series of spectacular, Hindu shrine-filled chambers set beneath a limestone hill, only 30 minutes north of the city.
Kuala Lumpur International Airport offers direct flights to Singapore and other destinations around the world.

Great location, really pleasant and clean, but the thing that makes this such a good country to stay are the very beautiful . All of the people are incredibly helpful and generous with their time and advice.
Kuala Lumpur is a city of lights and beauty. You have a myriad of restaurants and the night life is interesting. It offers everything from sky dining experiences, to 5-star hotels to the simplest of hawker foods (Jalan Alor). So mucn colour for a city that is growing not only with global and local people, but also Skyscrapers. Its a lovely city, and each corner has its own story and hidden gems. Come and indulge in something truly Malaysian to International niche.
I was only stay a couple days in KL in a Trader Hotel, which was in the central of the KL. It was great, it's an easy way to get to the mall next to the hotel, twin towers and the crowd. You also can easily get food. Just walk around. You can also take the free hop on bus in front of the KLCC and going around at the most shopping center at KL.
Do you have a lot programms if you would like to see the city and the culture and the buildings. We was in the Bird Park (a little expensive the enterancy fee) also the Aqua is very good program. The petronas towers visit is hard because you must buy the ticket before you go (maybe 1-4 days) because ~1500 tickets the max limit / day. We don't know so we can't go up. (All ticket sold). The best and easy visiting program is the Hop on-Hop off day ticket. 23 stops and the full important buildings and parks you can see. The best view to the tower is the sky bar (traders hotel 33. lvl) (see my picture)
The View of the twin twin towers from the room is amazing, especially at night when they are lit up. Travel to the towers is made easy using the hotels shuttle. Room is clean and tidy, staff are always polite, friendly and helpful. This is the only place to stay in KL. This was my second visit and it didn't disappoint.
The hotel accommodations were awesome! And the concierge and staff were extremely professional and friendly! The room was amazing!! We were within walking distance to the Petronas Towers, which were amazing.
