Homey and modern, this luxury loft is located in a new apartment building near KL Sentral, the city’s central transportation hub that connects straight to and from the airport. It’s also within proximity of the city’s famous Little India and Bangsar, where the bars are excellent. The loft is painted a sunny yellow to complement the bright Malaysian sunlight streaming through the floor-to-ceiling window. With a fully equipped kitchen and an LRT station nearby, this listing is the perfect intersection between comfort and convenience.

Calling fans of science fiction! Sleep in spaceship-themed capsule cabins at night while exploring the city centre by day. Each cabin comes equipped with WiFi, electrical points and AC to keep out the baking Malaysian heat. The cabin also boasts a privacy partition and ample space for what is essentially a pod. The interior will delight any retro sci-fi geek. In fact, with its royal blue cushion, the spaceship cabin looks a little like the bedroom R2-D2 would have, were he not a droid.

The interior decor screams elegant chic with an electric blue sofa and contemporary art pieces littering the apartment like the throwaway ideas of a genius eccentric. This listing is especially perfect for those traveling in a group as it boasts two bedrooms, two baths and two kitchen spaces. It has all the basic amenities, such as high-speed WiFi and a flat screen television. But the real bonus is that guests receive access to the gymnasium, sauna and best of all, the rooftop infinity pool terrace.

Bordering one of the city’s favourite shopping malls is this eco-friendly one-bedroom studio.

Climb up to the second floor of this studio and find double-layer pull-out beds, invoking childhood memories of sleeping over and when the sofa could only fit one.

‘Halaman’ is the Malay word for courtyard and it is the central feature of this listing. It hides a private, outdoor swimming pool, surrounded by trees, and is contrasted by the clean, efficient lines of the industrial interior decor. The structure itself was converted from an old shophouse. Hints of its past peek through in the brick exterior, the wooden blinds, and the swing chair on the balcony – a perfect place to relax and take in the sun.

Retail therapy has been rising in popularity in Kuala Lumpur. Nowhere is it more evident that in Bukit Bintang, where five shopping malls sit within comfortable walking distance of one another. And between them all sits the Chaos Penthouse. This listing is prepared for all eventualities; that has to be why it has seven bathrooms, alongside its seven bedrooms and two pantry areas. At 3365 sqft, there are plenty of space for the kids to run in, and a pool table for the adults to chill at after a day of shopping.

Price: $338 per night

Penthouse Suite 3R2B

The interior decor of penthouse suite 3R2B (a.k.a. Dream Castle) is a mix between a grandmother’s house and a pseudo-Roman villa. On the one hand, the bedroom has Colosseum wallpaper. On the other hand, the swimming pool (with a built in jacuzzi) rests below bas reliefs of European-style bathing beauties. Each room comes equipped with writing desks and bookshelves, and around back is a home theatre system. Truly an Airbnb for the indoor-inclined.

Price: $70 per night

Accommodates up to 6 guests

Ocean RestPlace

With its exciting nightlife and mamak stalls that stay open till indecent hours, Kuala Lumpur is a city that hates to sleep. All the better for the home to evoke a sense of calm like it does in this nautical-themed listing. Going as far as an oceanside wallpaper and using fishing net as wall decoration, this is a cute and clean duplex to rest in.
