Named one of the Best New Hotel in The World by Travel + Leisure's It List 2020, The Chow Kit is the first property from Ormond Hotels - a collection of thoughtfully designed, simplified luxury hotels that are inspired by local stories and misfits. Located in Kuala Lumpur's storied Chow Kit district – an area rich in character and history, The Chow Kit is a nod to this past - where people literally ran into each other on the streets or stumbled into dark alleyways of its infamous night time businesses. Although much of these business have long left Chow Kit, the neighbourhood offers cultural and gastronomical rewards behind its tough, gritty exterior. The Chow Kit marries tradition with modernity, taking inspiration from Chow Kit's past and present. The Chow Kit Kitchen & Bar -our signature restaurant and cocktail bar fills the lobby and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Private dining and meetings rooms are available for hire, and our 113 guest rooms provide all the essentials you'll need for a comfortable stay. Guests of The Chow Kit can also enjoy curated food & culture walking tours - providing a local glimpse into this eclectic neighbourhood, one of New York Times' 52 Places to go in 2020.

Working from home has taken a toll on me that I need a break from it and The Chowkit Hotel has given me just that. Nice bed, cozy and comfy, I slept like a baby until the next day, fully charged. Room super nice with nicest view and basic amenities. Rooms affordable, food was ok. I had dinner and breakfast and it was served on time as request and very delicious.

I kept seeing their ads on Instagram. And they were posting about the F&B Credit and Stay deal. So I decided to give it a try. First impressions were good. Was great WD very warmly by staff. The hotel is rather small but very cozy. The boy (Shamin I think he name was) that checked me in was very professional and friendly. Room was very nice and cozy. Bathroom had a rainforest shower head. TV can be connected to Apple or Android for your Netflix fix. Wifi had great connectivity. We stayed on a weekday. So we had the RM250 F&B credit and it’s also applicable for alcoholic beverages! What more can I ask for? I too come from a hoteliers background. And I must say although their menu is not extensive but the food was great. Especially the fish and chips where they fried the whole Seabass. Shout out to Mr Chan the FnB Manager. Was checking on how my stay went and checked my satisfaction for the food orders. All in all, a very nice and cozy hotel with a lot of local Malaysian artwork and touches. Will definitely be back.

Room was nice and cozy. Shower was very clean. Bare basic amenities, but it was good enough. The best part was the room service, since the restaurant was closed due to MCO 3. The menu was pretty extensive, Malaysian inspired. I cannot stress enough, how excellent the food was. However, the only thing was that the menu was somewhat confusing. They had a different menu listed on the website. A different menu in the room, and a different menu down in the restaurant.
