Whether it’s to earn elite status cheaply or to maximise bonus points offers, most ‘travel hackers’ keep an eye out for good value hotels that are part of their favoured loyalty programmes. A couple of Hilton Honors options recently caught my attention and made me wonder if they might be the cheapest Hilton hotels in the world.
If you’re thinking they might be in Turkey, it’s not a bad guess. I haven’t checked the other cities there, but Istanbul certainly offers consistently low rates:
£30+ isn’t even close to the cheapest Hilton Honors hotels I found though – and the real kicker is that they’re new, actually look quite nice and have a great location!
So, where in the world?
Yep, see those towers – it’s Kuala Lumpur!
Remarkably, someone has decided that what the (probably) cheapest Hilton hotel in the world really needs is an almost exact replica next door…
I haven’t picked some sort of freakish mistake rate dates by the way – 112 Malaysian Ringgits are worth about £21, and that rate is available almost every date, including during the Summer Holidays:
Kuala Lumpur is well known for offering excellent hotels at bargain prices, whether using hotel points or cash, but £21 is still pretty amazing.
If you fancy something more 5*, the DoubleTree by Hilton is also superb value at just 10,000 Hilton Honors Points per night – particularly if you have Diamond status, as then you get lounge access with free food and drinks too (not that you should spend all your time in a hotel lounge in a city like KL!). You can currently buy 10,000 Hilton Points for about £40, so that’s still where I’ll be staying on my next trip.
Having two of the cheapest Hilton hotels in the world next door to each other (and in a great city), is basically a ‘travel hackers’ dream. Given Hilton Honor’s frequent ‘per stay’ based bonus points promotions, I can see A LOT of alternate 1-night stays being booked between these two hotels!
Can you find an even cheaper Hilton Honors hotel? – I’ll send out some exclusive limited edition InsideFlyer bag tags to anyone who does! 😉
