Four Points by Sheraton Chinatown review

Looking for a family friendly hotel near Chinatown? Continue reading as we share our Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown review in this blog.

A visit to Kuala Lumpur isn’t complete without exploring Chinatown, where you can breathe in the heritage that mixes the best of Chinese and Malaysian culture. But also for those living in KL, Chinatown is a great neighborhood for a well-deserved staycation.

When we first moved to KL, we wanted to experience different areas of Kuala Lumpur. One of the first staycations we booked was to the Four Points by Sheraton Chinatown. First of all because the hotel is near Dataran Merdeka, the starting point of the Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur Marathon in which both of us participated. Being new to town, we weren’t sure if we could get transportation to the starting venue, so we decided it would be better to book a hotel near Dataran Merdeka. At the same time, we looked forward to exploring Chinatown and its surrounds. That was over a year ago, and guess what. We repeated this twice after our first stay.

Join us as we share our honest Four Points by Sheraton Chinatown review.

Comfy Rooms right in the Heart of Chinatown

Four Points Chinatown lets you soak in all the culture with its prime location near Petaling Street. We read Petaling is one of the best places to enjoy food in Chinatown, with nearby Merdeka Square and Central Market – some of Kuala Lumpur’s best historical places – giving you a different cultural experience.

A stroll around the area gives you a healthy mix of the old and the new, with street vendors, historic buildings, and a string of bars and restaurants waiting for you to enter. The train station is only a short walk away, so even if you wanted to venture beyond Chinatown, you have full access to everything else that Kuala Lumpur has to offer.

However its location was not the only appealing thing about Four Points Chinatown. Stepping into the lobby, we were greeted by an interesting mix of textures – with wood, raw bricks, jade-colored tiles, and a pop of other colors here and there. Arriving at the reception area on the 7th floor immediately gives you scenic views of the city, making us even more excited to see the view from our room.

The rooms are simple but have everything you’ll need for a comfortable stay. They also feature a glimpse of the past with watercolor sketches of old Chinatown on the walls, with views of the city as well. We stayed in a suite with an extra bed for our 3-year-old. It would have fit in a standard room as well, but we prefer to have some space, especially when one of us has to get up (and out) before sunrise.

Dive Into A Gastronomic Experience at Four Points Chinatown

The charm and culture found throughout the hotel extends all the way into the dining options. Just step into Quan’s Kitchen, and you’ll see exactly what we mean.

The open theatrical kitchen makes for an entertaining dining experience, with a buffet that offers a mix of local and Western dishes. We enjoyed breakfast; the choices here were extremely satisfying and, in addition to the regular breakfast dishes such as eggs, noodles, pastries, and pancakes, also included kaya toast – a local delight -, noodle soup, and even ice cream.

If you haven’t tasted Peranakan cuisine yet, then a visit to Lady Yi’s Tea House is a must. They have an impressive range of teas and Peranakan delicacies that make you want more.

For those who want to enjoy cocktails while soaking in the best views of the city skyline, head to Jann, an al fresco bar on the 7th floor.

But the options within the hotel are just the tip of the iceberg. Walk over to Petaling Street and hunt for the best roast duck, congee, and fresh beef noodles this side of town. Other must-tries include the glutinous rice balls called muah chee, rice noodle rolls soaked in chilli sauce and sweet bean sauce called chee cheong fun, and freshly-baked egg tarts, among others.

Facilities at Four Points Chinatown

After all the exploring you’re bound to do, a quick dip at the splash pool will be just the thing to relax you. This outdoor pool is located on the 8th floor, which means you also get to enjoy amazing views of the city, including full frontal views of Merdeka Stadium and the brand new Merdeka 118 tower.

The fitness center also has all the equipment you’ll need to continue your workout even while you’re on vacation.
