Located at the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s shopping district Bukit Bintang, WOLO Kuala Lumpur is walking distance to the city’s happening nightspots, cultural attractions and, of course, retail havens like Pavilion KL and Isetan The Japan Store, the only one of its kind in Southeast Asia.
It boasts four different rooms, Copper, Gold and Platinum (each designed in the colour of the metal they are named after) and the WOLO suite. If you're seeking something bold and fresh in the city, you can't go wrong here.

Designed by Sydney-based architect and interior designer, Akin Atelier, the playful and social-savvy MoMo's Kuala Lumpur is making its mark in the notorious Chow Kit area. Featuring thoughtfully designed micro-rooms (think hostel but elevated), the abode breaks the concept of tradition and celebrates creativity with its minimalistic and vibrant designs, a great place for young travellers.
To fuel up, the hotel is home to a self-service Mexican-inspired eatery, Momosita, the brainchild of Christian Bauer and Eddie Chew of Troika Sky Dining. There is also a creative event space that has played host to stand-up comedy shows, poetry slams, pop-up stores and DJ parties.

Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur is unlike any other Four Points in that it boasts its own unique aesthetics. Inspired by its location in Chinatown, it is adorned with Oriental elements like traditional jade-hued tiles as well as raw brick walls and warm rattan furnishing for a trendy space that reflects the rapid gentrification of the area.
It's the perfect place to bed down before beginning your exploration of the many attractions in Chinatown. It's also easy to venture beyond this perimeter as the hotel is a short walk to Pasar Seni MRT and LRT stations, as well as the Maharajalela monorail station.
