Keong Saik Hotel has managed to preserve its hotel to match the rich history behind the building and even the once-infamous street name. The interior design will bring you back in time to those days where rickshaw pullers are still a thing.

It is said that you can expect to be treated with the level of hospitality that rich Chinese towkays who patronise these shophouses get.

*Towkays - a Mandarin term for the rich businessmen

Hotel Mono puts on a compelling front: when you look at the 46-room hotel from the outside, it is dressed in a charming, minimalistic coat of black and white. Located in Chinatown, Hotel Mono is a chic hideaway set in six, historical shophouses. The place is decorated with pristine white walls and bold, black and brown furnishing.

Room rates here usually range above a hundred, but if you book it in advance, you should be able to get a room from $95. Boasting only the minimal, this no-frills hotel is equipped with great amenities, such as a King Koil spring bed, and an overhead rain shower.

JOHOR BAHRU (JB), MALAYSIA

How can we forget this? Although this isn't what the title promised, I promise you that the hotels or Airbnb there is worth the experience and affordable as well!

I personally have not stayed overnight at JB in a hotel or Airbnb but I have friends who did so and really enjoyed themselves. Would love to try so one day and sing karaoke the whole night too.
