Profile: Chinatown

Profile: Chinatown

Chinatown is steeped in history—this atmospheric network of narrow streets in downtown Kuala Lumpur started out as the city’s tapioca-producing district. Head for Petaling Street to haggle for cut-price souvenirs among a myriad of stalls and admire the market’s glass roof, known as the “green dragon.”

When you’re done shopping, let Chinatown’s food take center stage—this area is famed for its delicious fusion cooking that combines the Chinese, Indonesian, and Malaysian cuisines. Soak up the authentic atmosphere as chefs work their magic to whip up local favorites like ikan bakar (barbecued fish) and asam laksa (spicy noodle soup).

    Swiss Inn Hotel KL doesn’t Live up to it name. We have Negative Experience while living in the hotel during our trip here in Kuala Lumpur. The Only good thing about the hotel was it location which was at the heart of China town and very near to the Alor night market. During our first Day, we have trouble checking in as the hotel staff cannot find our booking number. We had a printed version of the booking number given to the hotel staff they cannot find our booking number. I found this situation to be very unusual, as normally the hotel receptionist only requires our passport and one Booking number and we would have our room. This hotel requires three separate Booking number when all the booking was done by a friend of ours. The book in time was 3pm for this hotel, we were reached the hotel reception by 1pm. And we are required to pay 100MYR (for each room) for early check in. When I asked the Receptionist Annie whether there were available room, she gave a “high and mighty” look and avoid answering. If there are room available why not just let us book in early without paying the 100MYR as we already had booked early before we arrived at KL? And if there are really no room available, why was there a need to pay for 100MYR? And when the room was ready, no call was given to us despite we had already given our Malaysia phone number to the receptionist. Our friend we did our booking end up had to called expedia to retrieve additional booking number, isn’t this the hotel recept

    Was my repeat stay after several years. It has not been well maintained. The door separating shower and toilet was missing. Check in and check out also took quite a long while as the staff doesn’t seem to know how to operate check in. Initially gave us wrong rooms but was quickly rectified but due to this change, it caused check out to be problematic as the system indicated that I haven’t paid yet for the room.... Kettle was broken and we called for assistance but was ignored Only saving grace was the location of the inn was perfect, close to food, shops n mrt. The mattress is also very good, comfy and has good support for back.

    I check in at about 4am this morning 18 May. The guy at the counter informed that I cannot pay tax by credit card and have to be in cash. I pay room in cards and tax in cash. Unfortunately the guy did not give me a receipt and my problem started when I wanted to check out. The counter staff informed that they could not locate that I have paid in their system. As it was taking too Long, I told the guy that that I will pay again for the tax and will make an official complaint as the amount is not a big amount. I also ask for a official receipt for my stay and was informed that they do not provide As I book thru Expedia. It’s strange as every booking I make that I paid directly to the hotel I am always given a receipt. This was my first unpleasant encounter after so many years of staying in Swiss Inn. I challenge the reception and in the end they gave me a receipt. So what is the SOP?

    Disappointed room....but good location!

    Average rated. Can be better if there are no disappointment with my room reservations. Booked for deluxe but got superior instead (with no windows!!!). Breakfast spread is disappointing. Towels provided has stains on it. Please check and improved. WiFi connection in the room is not working! Reasons was that there were too many guests and blocks were used up. But it work perfectly fine at the hotel check-in lobby. These are basic requirements in this modern times. But, Hotel location is good. Very new to night markets, surrounded with local food and convenient store.
