We have stayed here many times and are very happy with each stay. The location is ideally located to Monorail, Taxis & Buses. The Hop On Hop Off Bus has a stop at the front of the hotel. Try food at Tang City food court around the corner.
1 min walking from the lively Jalan Petaling and China town the hotel in completely refurbished with spacious room at a very good deal. Breakfast and free wifi are included in the price. Just outside the hotel there is a wide range of food stalls and restaurant where enjoy the evening and shops where empty your wallet! :-)
The location was fabulous. Step outside into the bustling markets of Chinatown, two blocks away is the rapid transit, and a short taxi ride took us to other sites. The shower had lots of hot water with a lovely big shower head with pulsating water pressure. A luxury in Malaysia! The bathroom had a large shelf to put things on and a funky flowered sink which sat on top of the shelf. Queen sized bed was comfy, room was cleaned each day, free instant coffee and tea, small fridge, soap, shampoo and hair drier upon request.
This hotel is a nice place to stay it is central to Chinatown area and very close to Petaling street and the night markets.The staff at the hotel are well mannered and polite the rooms are clean and tidy not the biggest rooms but still comfortable. Breakfast is ok, the food is tasty enough. The hotel is walking distance to many attractions and the train station Make sure you visit the Batu caves while you are in KL.
Returned to KL and stayed at The 5th Elements Hotel in Chinatown. Consistent, helpful staff at check in and housekeeping. Breakfast has really improved, Upgraded the breakfast area, new menu and looks and works really well. Location is the best in Chinatown. Rooms very quiet and clean. Have always found this Hotel reliable and staff are all very friendly and helpful. Would continue to recommend this Hotel.
I stayed at the 5 Elements for one night and I would definitely recommend it to travellers who are looking for an affordable but comfortable option in the China Town area of KL. The 5 elements offers spacious en-suite rooms with comfy beds and pretty nice views overlooking KL (I was staying on the 11th floor). The staff is helpful and the rooms are very clean, there is also a travel agency right next to the building which organises tours of the city and transport to the main destinations in Malaysia, which is very handy! The location is also great, in the heart of China Town and very close to central KL.
It was a good hotel, I got a 1 person room. It had everything I needed, bathroom was really clean and good. The place is great, walk out the door, cross the street and you enter Jalan Petaling, Chinatown. Most things are in walking distance or 5 - 10 minutes cab. Great! The building is really high so you can get a good view over the city.
Pirobably the nicest hostel I've stayed at. Great for walking distance. From train station. Good place to go on their pub crawls as well.
