Where to stay in Petaling Jaya

Petaling Jaya is just far enough away from central Kuala Lumpur to be more affordable and less crowded, but still well connected enough to make traveling a breeze. You can find plenty of mid-range hotels, as well as some luxurious options, although not much in the way of low-budget accommodations. Make sure to look for something close to an LRT (rapid transit) station for easy access into central Kuala Lumpur. If none of the accommodations in Petaling Jaya suit your taste, simply stay in Kuala Lumpur proper; excellent public transport connections make the commute simple and quick.
