Travellers' Choice
Named one of the Best New Hotel in The World by Travel + Leisure's It List 2020, The Chow Kit is the first property from Ormond Hotels - a collection of thoughtfully designed, simplified luxury hotels that are inspired by local stories and misfits. Located in Kuala Lumpur's storied Chow Kit district – an area rich in character and history, The Chow Kit is a nod to this past - where people literally ran into each other on the streets or stumbled into dark alleyways of its infamous night time businesses. Although much of these business have long left Chow Kit, the neighbourhood offers cultural and gastronomical rewards behind its tough, gritty exterior. The Chow Kit marries tradition with modernity, taking inspiration from Chow Kit's past and present. The Chow Kit Kitchen & Bar -our signature restaurant and cocktail bar fills the lobby and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Private dining and meetings rooms are available for hire, and our 113 guest rooms provide all the essentials you'll need for a comfortable stay. Guests of The Chow Kit can also enjoy curated food & culture walking tours - providing a local glimpse into this eclectic neighbourhood, one of New York Times' 52 Places to go in 2020.

Room looks really classy. Water dispenser provided in the hallway. If I were to be picky my only complain is that I can’t connect Netflix to the tv haha. But that’s not the point. Bed was clean n comfy. You have to try the cheeseburger which is a lot better than plenty burger shops. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall had a wonderful evening at the hotel. I’d come back again !

Planning for a special event is never an easy task, more so in this difficult time. I was fortunated to stumble upon The Chow Kit and Mr Roswan. After weeks of planning, multiple messages, site visits, and personalised tour and discussion with Mr Roswan, the special event was craved in stone. The food, the room, and the services provided by everyone (Mr Roswan, Mrs Dholly, the frontdesk angels who attended to my urgent plaster request and complicated dinner plan, and other staffs) were impeccable. Please consider The Chow Kit for your staycation in KL, dinner do, proposal, anything at all. They are probably the best in a very subtle way. You will feel like you are staying at your best friend's crib and your best friend is the hotelier out there. Perfect!!! And the price. They should charge more!!! Special Thanks to Mr Roswan. My savior and now my friend.
