Make no mistake, Kuala Lumpur has some truly world-beating hotels. But sometimes, it’s nice to flop back into a bed that feels like yours, or rustle up some dinner instead of eating out again. Add in extra hotel perks, such as swimming pools and fitness centres, and a self-catering apartment could be the perfect way to get to know the Malaysian capital. Book one of the best with Culture Trip.
