If you crave privacy and are willing to spend a little more for it, renting a commercially leased property could be the answer. Good for families or large groups, investing in an Airbnb-type of accommodation could prove easier and more sociable, with less strict times for checking in and out. A growing interest among apartment owners looking to gain a little more capital, condos around Kuala Lumpur are being offered as holiday rentals. Be sure to check minimal stay duration, however, and research locations for optimum planning.
Another venue to check out is Sunshine Bedz, located right at the crossroads of Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Bukit Bintang. A two-minute walk from all local conveniences, this little B&B has the best location for someone who wants to see everything, from the glitz of upper Kuala Lumpur to its older remnants. The old shop-lot exterior may not look like much – strange even – for blocks like these to remain among the surrounding upscale developments, but that’s part of the charm.
