Benefits of renting a serviced apartment in Kuala Lumpur
The first benefit is that you don’t have to necessarily commit to a long term contract, let’s say 6 to 12 months. The same also happens in other cities such as Singapore and Bangkok, where serviced apartments companies are open to a shorter rent span.
Second, bills such as electricity, water, and internet are usually included in the rent. Also, most serviced apartment companies offer a free housekeeping service as 2 to 3 times per week.
Finally, a serviced apartment provider usually offers “luxury” facilities and services, such as a swimming pool, gym, spa, business center, transportation service, and babysitting service.
Serviced apartment rents in Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia, and it is also one of the busiest cities in the world.
Thus, the city has a well-developed hospitality industry; at the same time, accommodation prices are usually higher when compared to other cities in Malaysia, especially when it comes down to hotels.
According to Numbeo, the average rental prices for a “normal” apartment in the city center is around RM 2,300 per month; however, a studio suite in a hotel usually costs RM 200 to 500 per night (that is RM 6,000 to 15,000 per month).
Conversely, a serviced apartment offers a relatively lower rental price that ranges from RM 90 to 350 per night (or RM 2,700 to 10,500 per month) for a studio suite.
Note that, you can get up to a 20-40% discount if you decided to book a room for more than a month. This is common in many Asia countries, while Hong Kong is one of the exceptions.
