Long hailed as an iconic landmark within KLs Chinatown, this modest but well-equipped hotel straddles two parallel streets that immediately provides direct access to the Chinatown pedestrian shopping street on one end; and a vehicle accessible side on the other.

Bad expereince and Disapointed

In the toilet there some dirty stain behind the cover when you close the cover at the back there are some blood stain and sheet. The corridor outside the room is very hot. The TV can't see it and no repair and the room service just said the know but no action taken. Previous I like this hotel service and I do come back every year. I do recommend my friends to stay at this hotel.

Overpriced in KL

Pretty much as you would expect for a hotel of this standard. But that is the problem - it lacks anything special for the price, such as a pool or gym. Better value elsewhere. Best feature - awesome staff. Worse features - expiring wifi every couple of hours, rabbit warren of lifts, lack of windows in many rooms. Would I stay again - probably not. Also annoyed that price changed while I was booking without warning.

GOKL is a free bus service which will get you around the city centre. Purple line from Chinatown to Bukit Bintang and Green line from BB to KLCC. Steer clear during peak hour when it is much faster walking.

Great location!

Great location, in the middle of petaling street, however the only negative point is they didnt provide tooth brushes and the pillow cases was a little dirty. Breakfast spread were limited. Will stay here again if im visiting KL!

Cheap hotel, good location

This was or second stay at the Swiss Inn. Like many hotels in KL the rooms are a little small but are clean and air conditioned. Location is good not far from the train station.

EVERYTHING WAS GREAT

First night we were in a room overlooking markets, very noisy, asked to move, it was no problem. We stayed 9 nights.The hotel has been freshly painted, each floor a different bright colour, it was great. There is a fridge in your room and your given bottled water every day, i found the tap water ok to drink. The hotel is right in Chinatown , you get a buffet breakfast, we sat outside in the restaurant every day and watched the sellers setting up their stalls, it was fascinating to watch.The outside area as in the dining room was spotless, we would go shopping or on a trip and it was nice to be able to come and sit somewhere when you got back hot and tired. There are fans in the outside area which are nice to sit under to cool down, they didn't mind how long we sat there. We tried a few other cafe and restaurants but always went back to the swiss in. We got 20% off our food and drink bill, we paid as we went, (excluding alcohol) The staff are very friendly and always happy to serve you. I can't praise this hotel enough, it cost us under $500 Australian dollars between us for 9 nights. Taxis are cheap, cost $5 to get to Twin Towers from hotel, so is very central. I highly recommend this hotel! Stay there you won't be disappointed :-) :-) :-) :-) Lindy There are 2 Swiss Inns in KL, make sure you book the right one.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Taxis are cheap in KL, it only costs a few dollars to go anywhere . Barter with them, but don't argue over a few cents. Take a private taxi to the airport, arrange it beforehand if your going early morning, it's about 1 hour drive from Chinatown KL, cost $30 aus.
