Hotel Review: Hotel 1915 Kuala Lumpur Superior Double Room (2022)

Hotel 1915 Kuala Lumpur Superior Double Room Review

Hotel 1915 Kuala Lumpur is a budget friendly hotel in the heart of Kuala Lumpur adjacent to Masjid Jamek LRT Station. I picked Hotel 1915 Kuala Lumpur for this trip as the room rate for my stay was very reasonable at only RM50 per night on agoda for an almost doorstep access to the LRT Kelana Jaya Line, LRT Ampang Line, and LRT Sri Petaling Line.

Masjid Jamek LRT Station

After alighting from my KKKL Express (LA Holidays) bus at Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS), I took a direct LRT Sri Petaling Line train from Bandar Tasik Selatan to Masjid Jamek.

Hotel 1915 Kuala Lumpur is just adjacent to Masjid Jamek LRT Station after McDonald’s on Lebuh Ampang.

Hotel 1915 Kuala Lumpur is also located just opposite the KL117 BSN Lebuh Ampang bus stop which Rapid KL Bus Service 173 serves to Kampung Batu MRT & KTM Station for MRT Putrajaya Line Phase 1.

Check-in to Hotel 1915 Kuala Lumpur was fuss-free despite having 2 separate agoda bookings across 3 nights, and I got the same room throughout the stay. A RM50 deposit was collected for the room key which is refunded at check-out.

Contrary to many online reviews, the staff at Hotel 1915 Kuala Lumpur were all very friendly, greeting me whenever I left and arrived back at the hotel.

The small but sufficient lift lobby on the 2nd floor.

The WiFi name and password is pasted on the staircase door. Each floor has its own separate WiFi name and password.

A water dispenser and ironing board is available at the lift lobby, though no iron was in sight. I suppose it’s upon request if you need to use the ironing facilities. The hot water was really hot, but the cold water was not working and only room temperature water was dispensed.

There are 9 rooms on the 2nd floor.

My room at 201 was the first one after the lift lobby.

Hotel 1915 Kuala Lumpur Superior Double Room

The Superior Double Room at Hotel 1915 Kuala Lumpur is compact but it does the job well for a solo traveller. If you are sharing with someone, it might be a little bit too close for comfort unless you’re just using the room for a night’s sleep.

The blanket is folded down and bath towels are placed on top of the blanket on the bed.

The wall-mounted TV console has 2 shelves for storage of small items.

A TV was available in the room but there was no remote for it, neither were any buttons accessible. But it doesn’t matter, I didn’t need the TV anyway since I was at Rail Technology Expo (RTX) 2022 most of the time.

The switches and aircon control were all by the door. The key card is needed to keep everything on. It’s also worth noting that with the small size of the Superior Double Room, the room gets cooled down quickly and easily.

A physical room key is also provided. This can be used to unlock the room door manually if the key card fails. What I noticed was that the key card always fails on the first try for every room, as evident by the buzzer sounds which I can hear from inside the room. The door unlocks only on the second tap.

The bathroom is located in front of the main room area.

A bath mat is placed on top of the toilet bowl.

A big sink is available in the toilet.

The shower is on the other end of the bathroom. 3-in-1 soap is available by the shower.

Do note that there are no separate wet and dry areas within the bathroom, but the shower water does remain in the shower side unless you purposely spray water over to the toilet side.

A towel rack is available above the toilet bowl.

A wardrobe is also available.

Hangers are provided in the wardrobe.

An in-room safe is also available to keep your valuables.

After taking pictures of the facilities in the Superior Double Room, I realised that there was one very important feature I have not found – the electric power socket. I checked around the side table to no avail.

Alas, after tossing the pillow on the wall side to the last corner of the room I have not checked, there lies the elusive power socket.

However, the power socket is pretty much inaccessible with the mattress fitting in the corner of the room following the bed frame.

I then pulled out the mattress a little bit off the bed frame to get access to the power socket.

And there you have it – the elusive 3-pin power socket. Now I can charge my phone and camera batteries.


Overall, offered a comfortable stay in Kuala Lumpur since I spent most of the day outside. The location at Masjid Jamek is perfect for my KL stay too with easy access to LRT, good food stalls around, pharmacies, and convenience stores all within 3 minutes walk away or less.

It’s worth to note, however, that there was no housekeeping throughout my 3-night stay, but not that I needed it with the simple but sufficient facilities provided anyway. For the low price of RM50 per night, it’s also reasonable to not have housekeeping.
