Kawasan ini banyak hotel baru kerana tarikan pusat membeli belah termasuklah AEON Bukit Tinggi serta Pasaraya Borong GM Klang.
Info: Bandar Klang belum mempunyai hotel 5 bintang yang mewah. Hotel Crystal Crown Harbour View dan Hotel Premiere mungkin antara yang termewah. Jika anda ingin menginap di hotel lebih mewah, anda boleh mencarinya di Bandaraya Shah Alam, 10 km dari pusat bandar Klang.

Lokasi Hotel-Hotel Klang

Sebelum anda mengambil keputusan untuk menginap di hotel-hotel yang disenaraikan di atas, lebih baik jika lokasi hotel-hotel tersebut diambil kira. Ini bagi memudahkan pergerakan anda sepanjang anda menginap di hotel tersebut. Anda mungkin inginkan hotel yang dekat dengan kedai-kedai, pusat beli-belah, atau mungkin anda di antara anda yang mahukan hotel yang suasananya tenang dan jauh dari kesibukan bandar. Anda mugkin juga inginkan hotel yang mana mudah untuk anda mendapatkan perkhidmatan teksi.

Hotel Histana dan Hotel Prescott terletak sebelum anda memasuki pusat bandar Klang. Kedua-dua hotel ini berada kurang 2 km daripada pusat bandar Klang Utara dan berdekatan dengan Centro Klang.

  Hotel Histana adalah hotel pertama yang akan ditemui apabila anda menuju ke bandar Klang.

Suasana Hotel Histana terang-benderang dan meriah dengan lampu berwarna-warni pada waktu malam hari terutamanya pada hujung minggu. Kebanyakan pengunjungnya adalah dari kaum Cina yang kerap mengadakan pelbagai majlis keraian di hotel tersebut.

Centro Klang berada bersebelahan dengan Hotel Histana Klang.

Centro Klang adalah pusat hiburan baru di Klang. Centro Klang menempatkan ruang pejabat untuk disewa di Klang. Di sini juga ada sebuah pusat karaoke Neway dan juga Kafe Starbuck Coffee.

Hotel Prescott Klang terletak di sebelah kanan Federal Highway jika anda menuju ke pusat bandar Klang dari Shah Alam/KL.

Hotel Prescott Klang bertaraf hotel 3 bintang di Klang dan dilengkapi dengan kemudahan Internet WiFi. Selain ballroom, hotel ini mempunyai kolam renang bersaiz sederhana sahaja.

Sementara Hotel Family dan Hotel Goldcourse merupakan hotel yang terletak ditengah-tengah pusat bandar Klang.

Hotel Goldcourse di lihat dari Jalan Pasar. Kedudukannya berhampiran dengan Pasar Jawa dan masjid Bandar Diraja Klang. Pemandangan belakangnya ialah Sungai Klang, Jambatan Kota Klang dan Klang Selatan.

Hotel Crystal Crown, Harbour View pula berada kira-kira 5 km melepasi pusat bandar Klang Selatan, iaitu menghala ke bandar Pelabuhan Klang. Walaupun agak jauh daripada pusat bandar Klang, hubungan lebuhraya yang lurus dari pusat bandar Klang ke Pelabuhan Klang menjadikan Hotel Crystal Crown boleh diakses dalam masa yang singkat.

Hotel Crystal Crown Harbour View di Pelabuhan Klang juga dikenali dengan nama Hotel Crystal Crown Habour Klang.

Jaringan lebuhraya Klang-Pelabuhan Klang yang baik mempercepatkan perjalanan anda untuk berulang-alik di antara pusat bandar Klang ke bandar Pelabuhan Klang dan hotel-hotel di antara kedua-dua bandar.

Hotel Goldcourse Klang pula, walaupun hotel ini berada dalam pusat bandar Klang, namun dahulu agak sunyi disebabkan kedudukannya di pinggir Sungai Klang yang jauh sedikit dari kesibukan bandar Klang. Namun, dengan pembinaan dan pembukaan bangunan perniagaan dan kedai-kedai baru dalam jarak kira-kira 200m di hadapan hotel ini, anda perlu berjalan kaki sedikit untuk menikmati kemeriahan bandar Klang.

Bangunan hotel Goldcourse Klang merupakan antara yang tertinggi di Klang, dan boleh dilihat dari jauh. Walau bagaimanapun, oleh kerana hotel ini berada berhampiran tapak pasar harian (di Jalan Pasar Klang) dan di pinggir Sungai Klang, dan juga berdepan dengan kawasan tapak pasar malam minggu, persekitarannya agak kotor terutamanya pada hari Ahad.

Hotel Bajet Klang

Mencari bilik hotel murah 'single bed' atau 'double bed' pada harga dibawah RM100? Ya, carilah bilik-bilik hotel bajet di Klang. Tidak semua orang yang berkunjung ke Klang inginkan hotel-hotel yang agak mahal kosnya(kos sederhana dan tinggi). Jika menginap atas urusan perniagaan, hotel-hotel kos sederhana dan tinggi bukan menjadi satu masalah.Tapi, jika menginap di hotel atas  kos sendiri, untuk letak barang sahaja misalnya, bajet hotel lebih sesuai.  Oleh yang demikian, jika anda inginkan bilik hotel pada harga yang lebih murah, senarai hotel di bawah mungkin boleh dipertimbangkan.

Hotel Centum Klang (Klang Selatan) terletak di corner deretan shoplots 4 tingkat di Bayu Perdana Klang, bertentangan dengan Sekolah Menengah Teknik (Vokasional) Klang.

Comfort Hotel (Klang Utara menghala ke Meru) ialah salah satu daripada hotel bajet di Klang Selangor. Harga bilik hotel bermula daripada RM75.00 semalam.

Smart Hotel Bandar Botanic Klang is directly opposite AEON shopping centre. It's an ideal choice for business and leisure guests. Located above a convenience store and near food outlets. Smart Hotel Botanic Klang is also only around 1km away from GM Klang, a huge wholesale haven!

 
Hotel Centum is located at Taman Bayu Perdana, near major towns like Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Pandamaran and North Port. Accessible by Kesas highway, it is located near Aeon Bukit Tinggi. We operate 24 hours with CCTV monitoring system for the convenience and security of our valued guests.

Our place provides you with comfortable, and elegant setting. Hotel Centum is equipped with it’s own style of hospitality with facilities you would expect from a five stars hotel.

We do our best to provide you with the best hotel experience and comfort. Contact our friendly staff for reservations or enquiries. Address: No. 76, Jalan Batu Unjur 1, Taman Bayu Perdana, 41200 Klang.

Mungkin terdapat beberapa lagi hotel bajet yang ada di bandar Klang yang tidak disenaraikan di atas. Senarai bajet hotel di atas adalah yang maklumatnya ada di Internet. Jika inginkan pilihan yang lain, anda boleh survey sendiri di bandar Klang.  Jika anda mempunyai maklumat terbaru mengenai hotel-hotel bajet di Klang, anda dialu-alukan untuk emelkan maklumat tersebut kepada mohd_azeri@yahoo.com.

Jika anda ingin berkunjung ke tempat-tempat berhampiran bandar Klang seperti Meru, Kapar, Pelabuhan Klang, Pulau Ketam ataupun Pulau Indah, hotel-hotel di Klang masih sesuai untuk anda pilih sebagai tempat penginapan anda. Pun begitu, jika anda sengaja menginap di hotel-hotel di Klang untuk bersiar-siar di Bandaraya Shah Alam, jaraknya sekitar 15 km sahaja. Untuk ke pekan-pekan kecil dan kawasan-kawan pelancongan sekitar 10-15 kilometer dari pusat bandar Klang menambil masa yang singkat sahaja kerana jaringan jalanraya dari pusat bandar Klang ke kawasan-kawasan tersebut adalah baik.

Walau bagaimanapun, ketika ini kerja-kerja menaiktaraf jalan raya di tengah-tengah bandar Klang sedang giat dijalankan oleh pihak Majlis Perbandaran Klang. Aktiviti ini bukan sahaja menimbulkan kerumitan kepada penduduk bandar Klang malah telah mengakibatkan kesesakan yang teruk di bandar Klang pada waktu puncak. Kepada mereka yang ingin menginap di Klang, pilihlah hotel-hotel di luar pusat bandar Klang seperti Hotel Prescott bagi mengelakkan kesesakan jalanraya ketika ini. Insya Allah, keadaan ini akan pulih malah lebih baik dan lancar pada tahun 2010 nanti.

Choosing a Hotel.

Choosing the right hotel is always a trying task, and with the enormous number of promotions, deals and programs out there, it can be downright overwhelming. It doesn't help that these days most hotels have Web sites full of tantalizing photos and slick promotional copy that make you believe you'll be bathed in luxury as soon as you step foot into the lobby. How can you tell if a hotel will actually live up to its own hype - and, more importantly, if it's the right hotel for you?

Since every traveler has different needs when searching for a hotel, you'll need to ask yourself what's most important to you. Whether you're looking for a great deal, a great location or a great bed and breakfast (B&B), we've broken down the hotel selection process to make it easier for you to find the best hotel for your trip.

What Matters Most?

Before beginning your search, ask yourself what type of accommodations you want and what your budget will permit. Does location trump price, or are you limited to hotels under $150 a night? Do you need a hotel with a pool for the kids, or would you rather stay at a small property with lots of local charm?

Once you've decided on your top priority, then you can make a more targeted search. Following are the most common determining factors in choosing a hotel, as well as tips for finding properties that suit each particular need.

Tip: Use the booking engines to see what's available and test rates at the properties you're interested in, and then go straight to the hotel's Web site to book directly -- most hotels guarantee you the lowest rate when you book on their site, and will match a lower price you find elsewhere.

If price is your only concern, you may want to try bidding on Priceline, where you won't see the name of your hotel (only the star rating) until you've actually booked it.

  • Amenities: Most of the major hotel booking engines allow you to specify certain amenities when you're searching, such as a fitness center, swimming pool or restaurant. Sidestep makes the process easier by allowing you to compare several hotels side by side; the site's clean layout allows you to easily weigh such factors as star ratings, amenities, rates and room types.

  • Loyalty Programs and Frequent Flier Miles: If you travel a lot or if you're a member of a frequent flier program, it may be worth your while to join a hotel loyalty program. Not only can you earn points toward a future hotel stay, but you may also be able to accumulate miles if your hotel is partnered with your frequent flier program. Check your hotel or airline Web site to see a list of qualifying partners. Many programs also allow you to redeem points for other purchases, such as cruises, car rentals and entertainment.

  • Eco-Friendliness: Travelers who are looking to minimize their environmental impact can search for green hotels on a number of sites, including Green Globe and the Green Hotels Association. You can find a comprehensive list in our Go Green Travel Center.  Read Full Articles…

Considerations When Choosing Your Hotel Accommodation

When choosing for your travel accommodations, there are many important considerations to think about if you want to avoid that feeling of disappointment during your vacation. So, getting the right accommodation that will live up to your expectations is a must. It is a fact, that many travelers overlook their hotel accommodations and instead spend more time handling airline ticket reservations. They considerably spend a lesser amount of time in choosing their hotel.

It is important that you get the most of your hotel reservation. It is very much ideal to book early as much as possible and to keep your dates flexible. For hotels that cater to businessmen, they would consider the weekend to be their off-season. Families planning to take a weekend vacation could take advantage of such and get special packages or better yet cheaper rates.

Your choice of hotel should be based on several aspects which include the hotel's name, the amenities being provided, price, location and packages if any.

If you are traveling with your family, choose hotels that are family friendly. It would help if your chosen hotel has a children's activity center where kids can have fun and educational games with caregivers to supervise over them. A day care service and a pool for the children would also be nice.

Choose a hotel that uses electronic keycards and those whose doors are equipped with a security viewer. For those who merely like to spend time in the hotel, ask about the hotel's available amenities. Inquire also as to the availability of laundry service, on whether the rooms are provided with its own hair dryer, coffee maker, cable television, internet connection and also regarding the inclusive meals and the availability of a shuttle service for transfers. If you value much room service, ensure that it is available 24 hours.

Your chosen hotel's location is another important aspect and if you are on a vacation you are looking for some rest and relaxation. Ask about the hotel's surroundings and on whether it is not in a noisy location where there can be so much vehicular traffic most especially if you do not wish to be disturbed during your stay. It should also be as much as possible located near the attractions you would be visiting. This would definitely help save money for fare.

Knowing much about your hotel accommodations will make your trip a more pleasurable one. Ask family or friends for hotels they could recommend or ask for their opinion if they happen to have stayed at one of your hotel prospects.

Hotel Safety Tips for Travelers

Before Your Trip

  • Copy all credit cards, airline tickets, passports and important documents, front and back.

  • Jewelry and luggage and all valuables should be photographed prior to trip.

What to Look for in a Safe Hotel:

  • If possible, select a hotel with has installed modern electronic guest room locks. The majority of these locks automatically change the lock combination with every new guest so there is little chance of someone having a duplicate key to your room. If you lose or misplace your key, ask to have your room re-keyed immediately.

  • Fire sprinklers in hotel rooms, hallways, and meeting rooms likewise for smoke detectors. If each hotel room is not equipped with a smoke detector, are sprinklers systems installed in the hallways or is your only hope the local fire department.

  • Each hotel  room telephone should allow outside dialing.

  • Guest phones located in hallways and lobbies should not allow direct room dialing. Anyone using the phone should have to call the operator and request a room by guest name, not room number.

  • Secure locks on windows and adjoining doors.

  • Hotels that have limited access to hotel structure, generally the more limited the access; the less likely a trespasser will enter.

  • The parking garage should not have elevators taking passengers to guest floors. It should only go to the lobby.

  • Does hotel provide personnel trained in guest security and available for escorts to rooms and auto when requested?

  • Is the hotel located in a high crime rate area, especially when traveling overseas? Check with the Embassy's Resident Security Officer in that country and they can alert you of areas to stay away from.

When Arriving and Checking into Your Hotel Room

  • If you arrive in a bus or cab, stay with your luggage until it is brought into the hotel lobby.

  • Keep a close eye on your luggage, purse, etc when checking in.

  • If the lobby is busy, thieves will often take advantage of the distractions to take your things with them.

  • Ask the front desk personnel not to announce your room number. Rather, tell them to write it down or point to it. If the desk clerk should do this, explain the problem and asked to be given another room. You never know who is listening. Your room number is a matter of security, and the fewer people that know your whereabouts, the better. There’s no need to announce it to the entire hotel lobby.

  • When registering, sign only your last name and first initial. Don’t use titles or degrees. Makes it harder to determine gender, marital status or profession. If you are a women traveling alone, you might consider booking your room as Mr. and Mrs.

  • Don't leave your credit card lying on the check-in counter while you complete your registration. Also make sure the credit card that is handed back to you by the hotel clerk is really yours.

  • Instruct the desk not to give out your name and room number and ask for them to call you if someone inquires about you.

  • Immediately upon check in, get two business cards or matchbooks with the hotel name and address on them. Place one by the phone in the room so you know where you are and keep the other on you when you leave so you know where to come back to. If you get lost, you have the address and phone number handy. There is nothing more frustrating than telling a cab driver to take you to the "Marriott" and they ask which one?? That could be one very expensive cab ride. Or if you are in a country where you don’t speak the language, you can simply show a taxi driver the matchbook, and you’re on your way back to the hotel.

Room Selection

  • Maximize safety and security. Select a room located between the 4 and 6th floor Avoid rooms above the sixth floor--the maximum height that fire-department ladders can reach. For some fire departments overseas, and within the United States, they do not have equipment to reach hotel floors above the 6th floor

  • Whenever possible do not except a hotel on the ground floor that has doors and windows that open to the outside. Hotels with interior hallways tend to be generally safer. For security in motels, avoid ground floor rooms off the parking lot. If you can't get a room on a higher level, take one facing the interior courtyard.

  • Guestrooms that are as close to the elevators as possible are safest, but tend to be noisier. You might also want to find out if the room is located next to a vending area, those also tend to be noisy.

When Checking into Your Hotel Room

After checking into a room, examine the following:

  • Examine the guest room lock and be sure it is functioning properly.

  • The closets and bathrooms are checked to make sure no one is hiding.

  • All hotel room windows and outside doors are checked to insure they lock and operate properly

  • The telephone is checked and you know how to make a outside call from your hotel room.

  • Look for information in room about fire safety and read to become familiar with nearest fire exit / stairway. Locate nearest fire exit. Find one at each end of the hallway. How many doors away? Does the door open easily? Make a note on the back of the business card that you place by your bed noting the number of doors away to the emergency exit, in each direction, and the location of the fire extinguisher and fire pull box.

  • When you enter your hotel room, make sure the door closes securely and that the deadbolt works. Keep the deadbolt and safety bar on at all time.

  • Place your hotel room key in the same place every time, preferably close to the bed.

  • When inside a hotel room, for whatever length of time always use the deadbolt. If the room does not a dead bolt or heavy-duty security clasp but has a chain, twist it to take up the slack before latching it.

  • The door to your hotel room must never be opened by anyone unless the guest is absolutely known.

  • If you receive a phone call to your hotel room and the person states they are with the hotel and need to come to your room and repair something, use caution. Always get the employees name and call the front desk to verify that it was a legitimate employee who called you and they do in fact need to come to your room. Some criminals are known to where hotel uniforms or pose a plainclothes security.

  • If you want to test the hotel, call the switchboard from a house phone and ask for yourself. Tell the operator you are not sure of the room number. If the answer is, "She's in room 203," this is not a good sign. The correct answer is, "I'll connect you." Good security requires that the hotel switchboard not give out room numbers and the best hotels strictly adhere to this policy.

  • When inside your room, use a door swedge when sleeping or in the shower. This may seem a little overkill but overseas, hotel burglars have been know to frequent hotels that use standard metal room keys that are easy to obtain. Unfortunately many hotels do not change the locks to the doors when the keys are lost, the criminals know that many of the hotel rooms might contain valuables of the presumed wealthy western traveler from the United States. Some of the crooks are very bold. They have been know to listen to the room door to see if you are in the shower. If you are they enter your room with the spare key (because no secondary door lock) and removes your wallet, purse, or laptop. If someone else is in the room the crook is in a suit and says “sorry, the front desk gave me this key.” By employing a door swedge will keep out these sly crooks and will could an alarm if attempted.

  • Never leave your key in the lock inside your room (some hotels in third world countries still have these). They can be pushed out from the other side with a pin. The crooks simply slides a piece of newspaper under the door, the key drops on the paper and the crook slide the paper and the key back under the door.

When you leave your hotel room for the day or evening

  • When you leave your room, always leave the television on.

  • Ask maid to make your room up during breakfast. Place “Do not disturb" sign on door. If you want maid service, call to housekeeping and tell them to make up the room but leave the sign on the door. The sign is valuable when you aren't in the room because it gives the impression you are still inside.

  • At night, leave a light on and drapes should be partially opened as if someone was inside.

  • Always use the security vault in hotel. The in-room safe is adequate sometimes. The ones least recommended are those that take standard keys (usually overseas). Preferred are those that have an electronic combination lock. The front desk deposit boxes are usually safer but more inconvenient.

What to take with you when leaving your hotel room

  • Take a minimum of cash, and only enough travelers checks for that outing.

  • Carry “bait money” for potential thieves.

  • Wear minimum jewelry, especially women. Women, wear only a simple wedding band in lieu of a diamond ring. Remember in some foreign cities and even some area within the United States, a diamond ring might be worth what a criminal might earn in a year. Remove the temptation!

  • Keep credit cards and t/checks in separate pockets.

Laptop Safety while Sstaying in a in Hotel Room

  • Laptop computers or other expensive items can be easily stolen from hotel rooms. The only way to protect them is to leave them at the front desk in a safety deposit box or to secure them in your room. If you want to take the easy way by leaving them in your room (most of us do) use a security cable to a fixed object in the hotel.

Hotel Parking Lots

  • If you valet park your car at the hotel, and valet driver puts a card on your dash, make sure it does not have your room number, always keep it private.

  • Always walk in numbers at night, especially in hotel parking lots

  • Do not leave valuables in your vehicle. Crooks know that rental cars contain items of value.

  • Park as close to an exit as possible.

  • When approaching a car, always have keys in hand.

  • Women should keep purses close to their bodies not loose around or dandling off a shoulder. Keep it in front of you with a hand on top of it. Do not feel awkward to ask for an escort to your car. It is recommended to use the valet service at night.
