About Us

Welcome to The 5 Elements Hotel – a uniquely themed boutique hotel in famed Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur that offers hotel rooms at affordable rates plus highly personalized service.

No longer are tourists visiting Chinatown limited to just the budget hotels and travellers’ inns here which offer guests the basics of accommodation.

We honestly feel that hotel guests deserve not just affordability, but also comfort and security – plus that touch of the unusual which makes a stay truly memorable. Our aim is to make everyone who comes to our establishment say, “Hey, I found a really cool place to stay in KL!”

Wu Xing

Our boutique hotel is inspired by traditional Wu Xing (五行) philosophy – reinterpreted for the discerning modern traveller who seeks something beyond the ordinary. 

Here, water, wood, fire, earth and metal – the Five Elements essential for universal balance – set the theme for a contemporary, chic ambience and a refreshing service experience.
