Where to Stay in KLCC
Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in KLCC
Known as the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) it’s easy to assume that this quarter of KL is the heart of Malaysia’s capital. However the truth of the matter is that KLCC, Bukit Bintang and Chinatown form the triumvirate of KL’s busy core. With the biggest concentration of five-star hotels than on any other street in the city, the KLCC development is spearheaded by the 88-storey, steel-clad Petronas Twin Towers. An essential part of the KL experience is to explore the city’s main mammoth shopping complexes and KLCC is one of the best places to come across more than a few of them. In truth, the area also plays host to a string of trendy restaurants, bars and sightseeing havens; located here is the KLCC Park, the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Aquaria KLCC and the Suria KLCC shopping mall (one of the city’s trendiest malls). Though the city centre is quite compact, this sub district of KL is a popular choice amongst tourists due to its centralized location.
