Look no further than our list of minimalist-style hotels in Malaysia where you get to retreat into calm and soothing spaces! Once travel has resumed, plan your much needed break at one of these places and let the zen take over 😊
1. MoMo’s Kuala Lumpur
MoMo’s describes itself as a hotel with micro rooms and major personality. It’s fitting then that the hotel offers some eye-catching colourful spaces that are bound to appeal to those who love a good background. Designed by Sydney firm Akin Atelier, the hotel strives to be a social area where events can be hosted in the lobby, with a regular roster of activities scheduled.
With affordable room rates, MoMo’s opts for a no-frills approach. The rooms have a minimalist feel but are equipped with all the amenities every millennial would need, including free high-speed WiFi, a Smart TV and warm, dimmable lights.
2. Lantern Hotel, Kuala Lumpur
Lantern Hotel is every bit the hideaway-in-plain-sight we never knew we would see in our lifetime. Walking through their entrance feels like you’re leaving behind the vibrant exterior and substituting it with a spotless, airy interior that’s nothing short of enlightening.
Food hunting could not get easier if you plan to stay here. Halal food is aplenty within 5-10 minute walking distance, plus the Central Market (also known as Pasar Seni) is also accessible via MRT, LRT and bus station – all located near the hotel!
One thing you’ll most definitely notice is how the hotel utilises the full potential of brick wall aesthetics. From the corridors to the rooms, it’s hard not to appreciate the contemporary vibe this place gives out. And of course, the rooms are designed to look as clean and as minimalist as possible. As you step in, prepare to leave your worry at the door, release all that tension, and unwind.
