Setiawangsa is an eastern suburb in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, located less than 4 kilometres from the city centre and located right next to Ampang.

Puncak Setiawangsa and Bukit Setiawangsa is a neighbourhood positioned high up on the hills in the midst of a quiet surrounding, just minutes away from the hurly-burly of the city centre. Setiawangsa caters to some Malaysians and expatriates. Bukit Setiawangsa/Setiawangsa Heights is dubbed as the Hollywood Hills of Kuala Lumpur.

The lists of tenants here is changing daily, due possibly to the easier traffic flow (helped by the new Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway (DUKE)), competitive rentals and accessibility between KL, Petaling Jaya and other suburbs. Firms such as Texas Instruments, I & P, Right Balance Group, Fidin Universal, Tanjung and RB Helicopters all have their operational bases in Setiawangsa. Japanese retailer JUSCO also has one outlet operating here in AU2 since 2008.[1]

Setiawangsa's parliamentary constituency is currently led by Ahmad Fauzi Zahari of UMNO.
