Hotel 1915, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


Stepping from the bustling Leboh Ampang, one of the city’s oldest streets, into the lobby of Hotel 1915 one is greeted by the cool and welcoming calmness of its contemporary décor, natural materials and muted shades of grey and white. An information counter and internet stations offer guests the convenience to organise their sightseeing and other activities in Kuala Lumpur, and making onward travel plans further afield.

Hotel 1915 could not be better located for those who wish to explore Kuala Lumpur, its history and its rich culture.

The original settlement which later became the city was founded in around 1857 at the confluence of the Gombak and Klang rivers. It developed as a trading post with something of a ‘wild west’ atmosphere, where the Chinese miners prospecting the tin ore laden sediments of the Klang valley could come to buy provisions, borrow money, trade and generally let off steam.

The first streets including Leboh Ampang, famous for its ‘Chetty’, Indian moneylenders and sundry goods traders, grew from this point. Many of the old Chinese straits style shop houses of brick and stucco are still standing and doing business today, the wooden ones though have rarely survived. Most of the city’s important historic landmarks are also to be found very close by
