Malaysia Hall at Bayswater, London

Posted by Apple Foodees On December - 28 - 2009

Malaysia-Hall

The post-Christmas sales are now on! Ladies, it is time to get your long-waited branded Gucci and LV bags! And guys, the stereo system or television set that you’ve always waited for. All are sold in a shockingly low price!

I know, it can be very expensive to come all the way from Malaysia to London just for the sales. But, if you are a Malaysian studying anywhere in the United Kingdom and are planning for a visit here, do consider staying at our very own Malaysia Hall. This place only caters to Malaysians only so only Malaysians are allowed to stay here. So if you are looking for a cheap and reasonable place to stay, I would strongly recommend you to stay here.


Menu

In case you were wondering, yes, they do have Malaysian food here. Nasi lemak, rendang, sotong, roti canai and laksa are some of the dishes they offer here. A plate of nasi lemak here is £4.00 which comes to about RM22.00.

Mixed-Rice1

Not wanting to spend too much on food, I opted for the mixed rice with two side dishes at £3.40. I had rendang lamb and my favourite sambal aubergine. Meanwhile, curry kuah, sambals and cabbage are given for free for every set rice.

Mixed-Rice

Craving for more of Malaysian food, we dine here once again the next day. I ordered the same set, but this time I got myself a fried chicken and the spicy sambal aubergine. I just love their sambal aubergines. It was spicy and sweet. I’m sure many of you out there will agree with me that nobody can make good sambals as Malaysian.

Roti-canai

On our last day here, we had roti canai served with lamb curry. Their roti canai is quite different from the ones we have in Malaysia. The roti canai is round. If I am not mistaken, it must be a pre-packed roti canai. Nevertheless it was warm and crunchy.

Lamb-curry

This dish is price at £1.80 for two pieces of roti canai. Hot and warm water are also served for free. You can mix your own 3-in-1 coffee if you prefer your own specified brand type of coffee.

Bed

Alright now, lets take a look at the room. As I was sharing with a friend, we took the twin-sharing room. The rates are calculate base on each occupants. Each occupants for a twin-sharing room are charge at £6.46 per night. If you prefer a room by yourself, the price is about a pound more expensive.

318B

The keys given to each occupant carries the bed number that you are going to sleep on. So you don’t need to fight for the beds. Besides that, towels are also provided.

Desk

They have all the basic amenities which I would consider reasonable for the price you are paying for.

Basin

They have an attach bathroom too! Note that, they do not provide bathing items but these can be purchase easily at the shops near the hostel.

Window-view

Another thing that I like about this place is that both male and female rooms are separate. The third floor are allocated only for females while the fourth floor are only for males.

Malaysia-Hall

Note that, the room prices stated in this blog reflects the rate for a registered student studying in the UK only. So if you have not registered yet, I would advise you to do so at their NEW Website = http://www.maralondon.gov.my. Non-registered student pays almost double of the prices stated above. And if you are not a student, fear not. You are still eligible to stay here provided you have book a place online. Note that, priority will be given to students studying in the UK. There are many budget hostels around in case the rooms are fully booked.

You can find the Malaysian Hall at the following address:
30-34, Queensborough Terrace, London W2 3ST

Tel: 020 7985 1252 (MSD)
Tel: 020 7985 1262 (Malaysia Hall)
Fax: 020 7221 5615

If you are taking the Underground tube, stop at Queensway rather than Bayswater (contrary to what others suggests). Trust me. It is much nearer!

    I used to come here for my rendang ayam and nasi lemak fix! Since I was so deprived of Malaysian food, they were the best thing ever. LOL

  2. [...] to find nasi lemak in England. The only cheapest place that serves nasi lemak is at our very own Malaysian Hall in London. It is priced at £4.00 which comes up to about RM24.00 for a normal nasi lemak. Well, of [...]

    Food is mediocre but prices are the cheapest. The rooms are quite an improvement (luxurious) compared to the previous address at Bryanston square. Don’t know if they still practise the rediculous curfew hours of 8pm home time?

  4. They still practice the curfew hours but they have changed it to 11pm.

    Hi. I would like to make a reservation for my family for our trip in June. Please help if there any email address i could email to with regard to this or how do i go about doing this? Thanks

  6. Check their website for more details on how to book your room at http://www.masduke.net/v3/index.php

    Hi may I know is it difficult for non-students to get a room in Malaysian Hall? Were u located in UK before staying in Malaysian Hall? I’m in KL now, planning to visit London in May.

    How long did it take for them to reply/process your booking? I hope it’s not too late to book now.

    Thank you.

  8. I was studying in UK when I stayed in Malaysia Hall. So it is much easier for me to get a room there. It is still quite early for you to book a room now if you are visiting London in May. You must place your booking on their website at least 1 month before your stay. You should be able to get a room, but priorities are usually given to students first.

    My advise for you is to book through their website now and wait for confirmation from them. They will send you another e-mail (1 or 2 weeks) before your stay for further confirmation on your booking.

  9. Leong says:

    Thank you. I got their reply. They want me to call them one week before my arrival to check if they have place for me, which i think is a bit risky…

  10. Hi Leong,

    I used to think so too. But my friends and I did bookings on Malaysia Hall for so many times and we get our rooms all the time. No harm calling them to check on your rooms 1 week before your stay. You might get a chance of getting better room at a lower cost.
    Just get a backup room if you are afraid that they will cancel your booking. :)

  11. Hebe says:

    I submitted online form as well. As usual, they asked me to call them back one week prior to arrival for confirmation.

    Hopefully I can get the room.

  12. Leong says:

    Ok thanks for ur advice. And thanks for the pictures too. =D

  13. You are most welcome. Don’t worry too much. The staffs there are really friendly, you will feel almost like home there.
    Have faith in your own Malaysian people. :)

  14. vivienlim says:

    For a twin-sharing room, the charges is still at £6.46 per night in 2011?? For student~

  15. No, I think they have increased their price. Call them to check. :)

  16. Kenzo says:

    Hello, i will visit to London end of this month and i had submitted the online booking form through the MSD. Anyway, after submitting the form;it had nothing come out from the site such as the booking code or the reservation code. What should i do now?

  17. Don’t worry. They will send you an e-mail later and will ask you to reconfirm before going there.

    There’s no booking code or reservation code.

    Just wait for their e-mail.

    Hi, my sis n I will be in London this 27Aug and have been searching on web for accommodation until a friend of mine telling me about Malaysia Hall. would like to know are the rooms with fan? Tks

  22. It will be quite cold in August. I don’t think you need a fan. As far as I know, most ppl uses heater. They do not have air-conditioning or fan in UK.

    It’s cold!

  23. hamidah says:

    is there any plug in the room that we can use in charging handphone..is it allowed..

  24. Of course they do have plugs for you to charge your handphone. UK is a developed country, not a developing country. They have better facilities compared to Malaysia.

  25. Dolphin says:

    Hi, just one question, Apple Foodees, husband and wife cant stay in the same room rite?

  26. Yes. You can’t stay together.

    Men 1 floor, women the other floor. Both separate no matter what.

    I plan to do my research in London about a month in October. Do they allow to stay there for a long period? I feel it is quite hard to find other place or budget hotel to stay around Bayswater. Do you know if they any second choice to stay at budget hotel around or near Bayswater which have similar rate like Malaysia Hall if in case they do not allow me to stay in a month?. I get stuck searching and finding place to stay in London.

    If somebody could provide any info which suitable place to stay for a long period.

    Thanks

  32. I think it is better for you to find another place if you are planning to stay longer. If you are looking for budget hostels, you may try Hostelbookers.com.

    Hi. I am a malaysian student pursuing my undergraduate degree in malaysia at the moment. I plan to go on a study visit to London at the end of this month and I need to stay at the Malaysian hall for about four nights. Is this possible as they have mentioned on their website that you can only stay for a maximum of 2 days. Besides that, is there accommodation available ONLY for those studying in uk and ireland or is it available for students studying in Msia also?

  34. Priority will be given to students studying in the UK and yes, each person can only stay for a maximum of 2 days. This is to be fair for all. I don’t see that there is any harm booking though. Just book a place in case you are not able to get another room else where.

  35. Jun says:

    Hi, i am currently studying in the UK, would like to ask how do we book the rooms in malaysia hall, i cant seem to find any malaysia hall’s website,

  36. You can call them to know the procedure and e-mail them to book your room.

    Hi Applefood….so kind of you.. so much information that have been mentioned about MH.. I suppose to go to Oxford London on July, I really hope that I can get room at MH.. TQVM for your guide, and hope to see you with your Nasi Lemak n the tarik…

  38. Hi Dalilah,

    I am in no way associated with Malaysia Hall. I am just a Malaysian who had had the chance of staying there when I was still a student. I am just sharing this information for my fellow Malaysian friends. Anyway, thank you for your comments. I hope you will get a room there too. Enjoy your stay there. :)

  40. It looks like they have change the contents of the website for room booking. You may try calling them to enquire about the room booking.

    Thank you.

    So, the male amd female rooms are separated, right? What about family? Does it mean the wife and hushand need to stay in separated rooms as well? Thanks!

  42. I do not know whether they have changed the rules but based on my previous experience, male and female rooms are separated and they are on different floors.

  43. Fatira says:

    Hi! Nak tanya, kalau untuk student maximum 2 days juga ke?

  44. I was informed at that point in time that this was the case. This is to ensure more Malaysians benefit from it. If you would like to extend your stay, you will need to check the availability of any room on the day before you are suppose to check out. The staffs are very friendly. I strongly recommend you to forward all your queries directly to the staff.
