This affordable hotel had just opened up near Berjaya Times Square in 2020, and it’s definitely worth checking out.

The rooms are simple yet stylish with a minimalistic design, but don’t let that fool you.

You’ll still get all the essentials, including a security safe, and some rooms even come with mini bars.

Best of all, it’s just a quick 5-minute stroll to get to Berjaya Times Square from the hotel.

In short, this is one of the newest and most comfortable cheap hotels in the Bukit Bintang area.

Normal PriceRM 89 ++

This is another cheap budget hotel behind the Berjaya Times Square.

But instead of minimalistic, the room is decorated with a basic industry vibe that’s sure to impress.

There’s a 7-Eleven nearby in the Berjaya Times Square and a 24 hours Indian restaurant behind the hotel.

Plus, the monorail train station is just a short walk away, making it easy to get around the city.

However, we should note that this hotel doesn’t have a lift, so if you have heavy luggage or struggle with knee problems, it might not be the best choice.

Hotel Transit Pudu

the hotel transit pudu is cheap and affordable family hotel for those who needs a hotel with parking available
Normal PriceRM 99 ++

This hotel is actually located in Pudu, opposite the Plaza Rakyat, but don’t let that deter you.

It’s only 3km away from Bukit Bintang, so it’s still a great option for those looking to explore the area.

If you plan to bring your family to stay somewhere near Bukit Bintang, but budget is tight, this is one hotel we recommend.

And compared to other cheap budget hotels in KL, this one has covered parking.

The rooms are also large and should be comfortable enough for a small family.

The only thing we hate is the fact that the area is infamous for its traffic congestion.

Nearest Train : Plaza Rakyat LRT( 12 min)

Greystone Hause D Majestic Place

the spacious greystone hause hotel is a good bang for your buck
Normal PriceRM 85 ++

This spacious hotel is in the Pudu area.

And it is among the cheapest hotel in Kuala Lumpur that is equipped with a swimming pool and gym.

Your apartment here also comes with a fridge, a kettle and wall to wall window with the best view of the city.

Just note.

While the rooms here are large enough for families, unfortunately the bathroom walls are made of frosted glass.

You and your spouse my struggle with your privacy.

Nearest Train : Pudu LRT ( 5 min)

In Masjid Jamek

Masjid Jamek is a great area to stay if you arrive in Kuala Lumpur by bus or train. You’ll be close to the Masjid Jamek train station, making it easy to explore the city. But parking will be a challenge.

Big M Hotel

the room in big m masjid jamek is small but clean and safe. it is among the best budget under RM 100 in Kuala Lumpur.
Normal PriceRM 90 ++

The rooms in this hotel may be small, but they’re well-equipped and kept in great condition.

Plus, it’s located right next to McDonald’s and is only 3 minutes away from the Masjid Jamek train station, making easy to explore the city.

For example, to get to the KLCC Twin Towers, just hop on the train and you’ll reach the towers in around 12 minutes.

Safety is a top priority here, with 24-hour security and locked entrances.

And with attractions like the Masjid Jamek, River of Life, Chinatown, and Central Market, close by, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for great travel photos and memories.

In short, we pick this one as the best cheap hotels in Kuala Lumpur in term of the location and safety.

Nearest Train : Masjid Jamek LRT( 2 min)

1000 Miles

the 1000 miles hotel in kuala lumpur has spacious room for under RM 100
Normal PriceRM 90 ++

This budget hotel is a popular choice for foreign travellers due to its proximity to the Masjid Jamek LRT station.

The rooms here are also larger than the average budget hotel rooms in KL, making it a great option for those travelling with a companion.

However, the room decor is basic.

For breakfast, guests can enjoy free bread and coffee, and there is a small rooftop area to wind down at night.

A drawback is that the area can be crowded due to the nearby bus stand, and there is an unpleasant aroma from the surrounding sundry shops.

Nearest Train : Masjid Jamek LRT ( 5 min)

Ahyu Hotel

the ahyu hotel in masjid jamek is another good budget hotel in Kuala Lumpur
Normal PriceRM 80 ++

This hotel is located in a classic colonial building in Masjid Jamek, offering a minimalistic and elegant room.

It’s conveniently situated close to the train station, 7-Eleven, and popular restaurants like KFC, McDonalds, and Indian Muslim eateries.

You can also walk to attractions like the Central Market and Petaling Street.

But since the area can be crowded and noisy, we recommend that you ask for a soundproof room without a window to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep.

Nearest Train : Masjid Jamek LRT ( 5 min)

Pacific Express Hotel

Normal PriceRM 99 ++

This is another rare budget hotel in Kuala Lumpur that comes with a rooftop pool — a great perk for travelers on a budget.

This hotel is located in a beautifully restored colonial building and is a great value for under RM 100.

However, the rooms are small.

And may not be suitable for more than one person due to the frosted bathroom walls.

The hotel’s strategic location makes it easy to explore nearby attractions such as the Kuala Lumpur River of Life, Central Market, Masjid Jamek mosque, and Dataran Merdeka enclave, all within a short walking distance.

Nearest Train : Masjid Jamek, Central Market LRT ( 8 min)

Note: Unfortunately, we had a negative experience with a wet wall in one of the rooms during our stay at this hotel. If not addressed, it could pose a risk of mold in the future.

Seasons Point Hotel

seasons point hotel in chinatown KL
Normal PriceRM 95 ++

If you’re into Chinese food and want to explore the city’s Chinatown area, but want a cheap and decent hotel room, we suggest the Seasons Point hotel.

It is located opposite the Kotaraya mall and along the busy shop row area of Chinatown.

Like most budget hotels in Kuala Lumpur listed on this page, this hotel does not have any parking spaces, and the area outside is busy with traffic.

Hence, it may not be suitable for single parents travelling with children.

However, if you are a solo traveller who want to be near Chinatown, and prefer a hotel close to a train station, this is one of the best budget hotels available under RM 100 in the area.

Nearest Train : Central Market LRT( 8 min)

Lantern Hotel

the lantern is a minimalistic budget hotel in chinatown
Normal PriceRM 90 ++

If you have business around Petaling Street (Chinatown), this is one of the most comfortable budget hotels to consider.

The concept of this hotel is minimalistic and modern.

And when you step out of the hotel, the Chinatown night market is right in front of you.

However, we’re not that fond of the area.

If you’re a woman travelling alone, staying in the Chinatown is probably not a good idea.

Nearest Train : Central Market LRT( 5 min)

In KL Sentral

These is a list of affordable hotels in the KL Sentral area. They are close to the ETS high-speed train, Nu Sentral mall, and the monorail train station. Hence it is easy not only to explore KL but also get back to the airport.

Easy Hotel

The room size of this hotel is small, but it makes up for the price and location.

The KL monorail train station is just beside the hotel, making it easy for you to get to places such as the Bukit Bintang area.

To add the cherry on top, you’ll find a variety of eateries, shopping malls, and convenience stores nearby, ensuring that everything you need is within easy reach during your stay.

In short, for one day trip to KL, this cheap hotel should be enough for no-frill stay.

The rooms in this affordable hotel are affordable, modern, and comfortable.

They are also larger in size compared to most budget rooms available.

Another plus point is taking the train is easy as it is just opposite the Chow Kit Monorail station.

And if you want to take the free GoKL bus, the station is also within walking distance from the hotel.

However, we recommend that you request a quieter room away from the main road for a good night sleep.

Nearest Train : Chow Kit Monorail ( 3 min)

Okay, we admit that this is more than RM 100 per night.

But we can’t resist it since this is probably one of the best budget hotel you can find in KL if you’re travelling with your family.

We like that the rooms are bright, cheerful and clean.

On top of that, to explore Kuala Lumpur, you can also take the train as the MRT train station is right in front of the hotel.

And once the Merdeka 118 Tower is completed, there will be a nearby mall for your shopping pleasure.

For a little above RM 100, you’ll get to stay in an awesome budget hotel in KL that is above the shoulder of others.
