Hotel's Favourite
What an excellent hotel! We will only stay here in KL in future! Really lovely designed boutique style hotel, so much nicer than staying in a large business type hotel. Here it feels like home where the staff welcome you by name. The rooms and communal areas are very well designed and fun places to hang out. The restaurant and bar area itself was fun and vibrant/busy in the evenings too for dinner. We really enjoyed the breakfast (the most incredible avocado toast- Trust me!!) and the dinner and the lunch that we ate there. Also they have a great bar area and a cocktail mixologist who can really make excellent drinks (shout out to Dominic at the bar- who was excellent!). Actually a huge thankyou to all of the staff who were both super friendly and really helpful. I called up to book rather than through any website and spoke to a delightful and helpful lady called Dee Rose- she was excellent at helping me book. Finally a special mention in particular for Izni on front desk who was so kind to help with lots of recommendations for our trip to Penang as well as the logistics of getting there . She really was a wonderful help to us and really made our holiday easy and special . What a massive asset to the hotel she is! Overall we cannot thank everyone enough for making our first holiday in 2 years so special at the Chow Kit.

Stayed here a few times this year for convenience. Located within walking distance of a shopping mall and monorail station. Small but comfortable room and bed. Basic amenities are provided. No swimming pool or gym. The property is well kept. Speed of service could be improved. The only issue is with the parking, it is not easy to find parking although there is a small parking area next to the property. Guests are advised to travel by public transport or e-hailing.

A must try is the fish and chips! Amazing batter and a different kind of taste. Not your typical fish and chips. Great service, friendly staff and great cozy environment. Loved their chips and sambal too

Following the recommendation by the staff, Mr. Feroz, I had a nice and crunchy fish & chips here. The staffs are friendly to entertain you, or leave you alone as well if you want to be so, at the classic yet modern atmosphere. I found many people use this restaurant to enjoy on their Friday night, not only in-house guests. Thank you for the joyful time for my good kick-off of a weekend.

We are very impressed with The Chow Kit. It is such a unique boutique hotel and we love all the little details of the place. The location is great, walking distance to the monorail station. The staff are warm and welcoming. The restaurant is amazing! The high tea features Malaysian inspired flavours and was reasonably priced. The dinner was delicious. We loved the fish and chips recommended by Feroz, a unique twist with the fish marinated in tandoori spices. We highly recommend the hotel and restaurant and would definitely love to visit again in the future.

Almost didn’t wanna leave the hotel as the stay was too comfortable. Love the bar & restaurant space where the music playlist, soft diffused lighting, well curated art came together with high quality cooking from the kitchen. The design of the hotel is very well thought out, not over the top but tastefully done. Tip: Browse the art collection pdf in their website to learn about the local artists featured. Its under Spaces. Must try - fish & chips, the local cocktails with unique ingredients. Highly recommended! Shoutouts to the bar staff, maddy and nurizni for taking care of us!
