With so many things to see and do in Kuala Lumpur, a weekend getaway in Malaysia's capital city promises fun and excitement. While planning a city staycation may be pricey, there are many budget hotels in Kuala Lumpur you can spend the night in. If you're looking for something more than just affordable room rates, you're going to love this accommodation we're about to show you!

Situated in Bukit Bintang, a trendy shopping district in Kuala Lumpur, The Mesui Hotel stands out amid the surrounding modern buildings. Dotted with porthole-style windows, architecture lovers would quickly point out its resemblance to the Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo, Japan and appreciate its Metabolism architectural style.

There are four types of rooms available at The Mesui Hotel, which are mostly compact and ideal for a short stay. Out of the rooms we've seen, the Luxe room is what guests would normally opt for. Since it's a budget hotel, expect standard amenities ranging from a comfortable bed to ensuite showers.

Do note that The Mesui Hotel sits along Jalan Mesui that's famous for its bars and restaurants. The bustling street may be livelier at night, but you can still enjoy a quiet and restful sleep in your room.

If you've been wondering how the porthole-style windows look like from the inside, the Luxe room will provide a glimpse of it! While it only captures the view of the street down below, it remains a wonderful corner for Instagrammable snapshots.

Since you're spending a weekend in Bukit Bintang, you should definitely visit the trendy shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur. The Mesui Hotel is about 10-15 minutes walk from major shopping malls such as Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Fahrenheit88 shopping mall, Sungei Wang Plaza, and Berjaya Times Square.

If you don't feel like walking around with heavy shopping bags or in the scorching afternoon heat, you can always book a Grab ride. However, Bukit Bintang is notorious for its heavy traffic, especially during rainy days, so patience is needed when the situation calls for it.
