From international standard hotels, medium and budget hotels, to youth hostels and timeshare apartments are just some of the types of accommodation available. Hotel in Malaysia are classified according to a star rating system ranging from 1 to 5 stars. An ascending number of stars would indicate a wider range of facilities and services.
