When travellers choose the perfect accommodation during their trips, more often than not it would be based on its location and whether the room rate is reasonable. On top of that, other factors such as being near to public transport and street food are also important. If those are the attributes you seek, then Hilton Garden Inn Kuala Lumpur – the first Hilton Garden Inn in Malaysia – is definitely one the best places to stay in the city because it fits the bill perfectly.
Hilton Garden Inn is a world-renowned brand that comes in the form of mid-priced, focused service accommodation, ideal for travellers seeking world-class hospitality, comfort and quality at affordable prices.
“Guided by Hilton’s mission to be the most hospitable company in the world – by creating heartfelt experiences for guests and delivering exceptional experiences – at every hotel to every guest and at every time, we are committed to expanding the offerings of the Hilton brand portfolio in Malaysia and throughout the region,” says Hilton Malaysia Regional General Manager Jamie Mead regarding the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Kuala Lumpur.
This contemporary urban and affordable hotel is located along the bustling Chow Kit Road. The opening of Hilton Garden Inn Kuala Lumpur marks the first international hotel chain to open right smack in the middle of multi-cultural Chow Kit neighbourhood that buzzes with trading and wholesaling activities. Chow Kit is one of the places in Kuala Lumpur that brims with authentic grassroot experience that excite intrepid travellers along the likes of Kampung Baru, Petaling Street and Brickfields, which are all accessible from the hotel.
Apart from being in close proximity to Kuala Lumpur’s old-world charms that can be found around Dataran Merdeka and Leboh Pasar Besar areas, guests who stay at the hotel can easily reach the city’s more modern attractions too, ranging from eco forest walks and night markets to art galleries, shopping centres, museums and bird park. Business and government districts are within 10-minute radius by vehicle. It is also a stone’s throw away from Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) and Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC), two of Kuala Lumpur’s leading conference venues ideal for large scale events, and a 65-minute drive from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Why do we love the property?
The main thing about the hotel is its enviable location. Though it is surrounded by the hustle, bustle and congestion right in the middle of the city, the hotel is incredibly accessible to Kuala Lumpur’s famous landmarks such as the colourful Chow Kit Market and the gleaming KLCC. To explore more of the city while using the hotel as the base, guests are recommended to contact the Front Desk for useful tips on how to make the best of their time in Kuala Lumpur.
Starting from the average of 25 metres squared (270 square feet) for a Queen Guest Room with KLCC view to 36 metres squared (388 square feet) Twin Deluxe Room, Hilton Garden Inn Kuala Lumpur offers 265 contemporary and stylish guestrooms with either one queen or two twin beds decorated in warm and inviting tones, allowing guests a restful space with modern amenities such as complimentary Wi-Fi, 40-inch TV with satellite channels, a mini-fridge and tea/coffee facilities. The Hilton Garden Inn bed provides the perfect balance between comfort and support as well.
The rooms are minimally decorated with modern furniture. The décor of the room is kept pared-down and minimalistic with a touch of floral-designed wallpaper on a feature wall to indicate finesse. The view from the window opens up to either the city or the iconic Petronas Twin Towers that can be seen easily when guests wake up, get out of the bed and pull up the blinds.
