All of the street activity produces a bit of noise, but promptly at 23:00 the stalls...

I stayed in the 5 Elements Hotel in June and was very happy with the accommodation. The location is the best in Chinatown, central to great restaurants and easy walking to the mono rail.

This hotel is our favorite in KL. Booking, Checkin & Checkout was seamless. We had a clean, quiet room, with everything worked ok. The location is perfect close to monorail, bus station and Tang City Food Court.

Dear Nisar S,

 

Thank you for your question!

 

In addition to what blswanrkar58 had mentioned, for our daily breakfast service we provide a selection of hot food which sometimes includes Malaysian’s favourite traditional dish – Nasi Lemak, porridge or noodle soup on alternate days and mixed fruits for dessert.

 

Kindly let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Thank you!

Best Regards,

The 5 Elements Hotel
