Found in the heart of Kuala Lumpur (KL) city centre and specifically located amongst Chow Kit’s lively atmosphere filled with tightly packed stalls and contemporary malls is Momo’s Kuala Lumpur the latest addition by homegrown hospitality brand Ormond Group (which also includes the likes of the popular budget hotel chain, Tune Hotels).
MoMo’s KL is a veritable design wonderland come to life. It is a hotel that celebrates fun and creativity. And it also offers plenty of memorable moments as well as the vibrant city buzz that most of us suburban folks claim to crave. The desire to escape the ordinary intensified after the pandemic.
Furthermore, MoMo’s KL fully embraces the Asian open house culture that many visitors have come to appreciate. It prides itself on its informal setting in which guests — visitors and locals alike — are encouraged to relax, have fun, and feel at home.
Indeed, MoMo’s KL is a comfy design-centric lifestyle hotel providing a value-for-money accommodation option in one of KL’s oftentimes underappreciated neighbourhood.

At this 99-guestroom hotel, MoMo’s friendly hosts are immediately on hand to greet guests upon arrival. Visitors and guests will also be served either coffee or a cocktail while waiting to check into their rooms.

99 rooms and a suite ain't one ??♀️ Our minimalist rooms have everything you need and nothing more. A perfect little nook under the bed for your shoes to slip in, a 43” smart TV that is device-casting ready and a warm dimmable lighting that helps set the mood you’re in. L-R: Bunkies, Crashpad, Crashpad Twin. Check out "Our Rooms" highlight for more! #stayatmomos
Speaking of the rooms, each of MoMo’s micro-rooms features bespoke amenities, plush and comfy beds, mood lighting, smart TVs, and a safe, along with a self-pickup style room service facility. Y’know, common amenities found in most standard hotel rooms.
Where MoMo’s KL differs from other similar hotels, however, lies in its charming yet simplistic design palette, which is attributed to Sydney-based interiors and architecture studio, Akin Atelier.
Throughout the rooms and the communal spaces, straightforward materials like raw concrete, laminated timber, and combed plaster are utilized — giving rise to minimalistic tendencies most would find appealing.
Streaks of pink, washed greens, and aged brass found on furnishings, fabrics, and ornaments then round off MoMo’s design-focused, yet approachable character.
Moreover, MoMo’s also sets itself apart from the rest with its unique “hotel lobby”. Instead of a traditional reception area, you’ll find a dynamic, always-evolving social space that acts as the central hub of activity in the hotel, aptly named The Playground.
This shared space truly is the heart of MoMo’s KL. It is a collaborative space where one and all are welcomed to share and express ideas. It is also here that you’ll find creative communities engaging with urban nomads and other guests. Also, it is a place which celebrates creativity and spontaneity. Finally, it is the place where most of MoMo’s entertaining events are held in.
The Playground plays host to MoMo’s ever-revolving weekly lineup of exciting events including DJ parties, performance arts, stand-up comedy, workshops and exhibitions, poetry slams, food pop-ups or even just small talks in an intimate environment.
MoMosita Taco Bar
Feeling famished after experiencing a one-of-a-kind social event at The Playground? We can assure you that your night isn’t over, not by a long shot.
Serving classic Mexican dishes alongside draft beer and bottled cocktails is MoMo’s very own in-house restaurant — MoMosita Taco Bar.
The restaurant-cum-bar is a fun, gritty self-serve eatery where patrons may devour tacos, tostadas guacamole, and salads to their heart’s content. And that’s not all, some other food offerings also include lamb barbacoa and savoury sweet churros. Pair those with a menu of fine drinks including mojitos (referred to as MoMojitos), pisco sours, mezcals, and so on, and you’ll definitely have an enjoyable evening on your hands.
MoMosita is open in the evenings throughout the week, with late-night music programmings happening on Fridays and Saturdays.
Without a doubt, MoMosita’s is the ultimate casual hangout spot for guests and locals to drop in for a quick bite, snacks, cocktails or beer. No reservations required.
