Top Five Serviced Apartments in Kuala Lumpur

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

You are about to make the big move to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and there is just one thing left to sort out; your accommodation. If you are thinking of renting an apartment or house, the best advice is to wait till you get here. Unless of course you are lucky enough to have family here who can help you sort out a place to rent. The best option is to sort out a temporary accommodation in Kuala Lumpur, and I don’t mean a hotel. Your best bet is a serviced apartment.

What is a serviced apartment? Well, as the name suggest, a serviced apartment is an apartment that comes with all the services and facilities you need, much like living at home.  Some serviced apartment will also provide breakfast. A serviced apartment is usually for a short-term or long-term stay. It is similar to living in a hotel, but with more privacy.

People who travel on business for a short span of time -1 month for example- would usually choose to stay in a serviced apartment than a hotel room. With a serviced apartment, you get all the facilities you get at home, a kitchen, a living room, laundry services, television, DVD player, and more. The choices range from a one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom, four-bedroom or the penthouse.

The really good thing about staying in a serviced apartment is that most of these are located in popular areas in the city. This makes it easier for you to travel around, get your shopping done, visit tourist attractions, dine at a variety of restaurants and many more. And most of these are also located near offices to cater to those who travel here on business.

To help ease the burden of looking for a suitable serviced apartment, we narrowed down the five that we think you should look at.
