However, which one is actually the best of the best for your next visit? Introducing Adya Hotel, wholly owned by Permodalan Kedah Berhad. Adya Hotel is our best recommendation for travelers seeking for the best budget hotel in Kuala Lumpur. We stayed here recently and here are 10 reasons why you should choose this hotel over the other budget Hotels in Kuala Lumpur city.
1-Affordable Room Rates
We all obviously wish to pay the cheapest room rate but with satisfactory room’s condition. Room rates at Adya Kuala Lumpur starts from RM90 for lowest category with the highest category is of RM160. While there are plenty of third-party booking engines for hotels are available, we recommend that you call the hotel directly to check out their best offer or current promotion rate.
2-Wide range selection of room categories
Guests may choose from Single Room, Standard Room (Queen or Twin Bed), Deluxe Room (King or Twin Bed) and Family Room (King + Single Bed). Best of all, each category comes with affordable rate as mentioned earlier. Rooms are of descent size, great enough for a budget hotel standard.
While the size of each room category might not be that spacious as in high-end hotel, one need to realize that this is a budget hotel. Some rooms comes with magnificent view, so do ask for more information when making a reservation. Due to the structure of the building, some rooms are with No Window, so when making reservations, you need to be specific in what you need.
3- Friendly staff at Adya Hotel Kuala Lumpur
Based on our recent experience staying at Adya Hotel Kuala Lumpur, the staff were amazingly friendly, cheerful, attentive and helpful. They’re pretty well-trained to handle all related issues. Since Adya Hotel is a Shariah-Compliant brand, staff will greet all guests ‘Assalamualaikum‘; a common greeting among Muslims that literally means ‘Peace be with you’.
4-Detailed Amenities in each room
When staying at budget hotels, we get what we paid for. Expect to have the least amenities and that repeat calls to the Housekeeping Department, begging for things while they take the whole day just to send the items that you need. Well, not at Adya Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
Though it is a budget hotel, the management put customers first and they provide all that detailed amenities in the room, even when you don’t ask for. In each room, there is iron and board, Sejadah or prayer mat (For Muslim Guests), safe box, coffee/tea making facility, flat-screen TV, proper working desk, things that collectively, you won’t be able to find in other budget hotels.
5-Nearby to LRT Masjid Jamek

We’re in Kuala Lumpur and not in a paradise having vacation, there was no need for us to stay in our room for 24 hours.

We needed a room that is immaculate, has a proper working desk for us to work, bathroom that is fully functional with hot shower, clean towels, clean bed sheet and just everything that travelers need.
