Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur, a member of the Autograph Collection, has opened in one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, Jalan Kamunting. We hear Hotel Stripes — just the second Autograph Collection hotel in Malaysia — exudes a true urban vibe and draws inspiration from the history of its local neighborhood, once used as a settlement for tin mining during the colonial era.
For travelers who want to get a sense of the neighborhood, just outside is what locals call “The Row” (formally known as the Asian Heritage Row); it has 22 shops in buildings dating to the 1940s, which are mostly made of wood and thatch (you can tell which buildings are post-Colonial as these are made of brick and tile), and includes a mix of restaurants, nightlife, cafés, art galleries and more.
Back at the hotel, of the 184 rooms, the top dig is the 667-square-foot Stripes Suite. Tip: Ask for a room facing the Kuala Lumpur Tower skyline — these are the best views. Couples, however, should consider the Executive Studio room as these are the only rooms that come with a bathtub. Recommend the Studio Rooms for families; these are the only connecting rooms.
Kuala Lumpur Tower be seen from some of the hotel’s 184 rooms as well.
Want to grab a bite to eat at the hotel? There are three options: Brasserie 25, a French-style restaurant with laidback cuisine that also offers Le Goûter (afternoon tea with a French twist); The Snug, a pitstop for a quick caffeine fix to start the day; and Man Tao, the rooftop pool bar, with views of Kuala Lumpur.
