We booked an early bird offer for a club room so the value for money was great. We paid around 85 Euro per night in a huge room which we shared the three of us. The room had two Queen Size beds, view at the Petronas towers, a living room with TV and desk, drinks, refrigerator, two closets and a bathroom with shower, bath tub, two sinks...
Check-In for a club room is not done in the lobby but on the 20th floor in the club lounge. Service here, in the lobby bar, at the pool and everywhere else was just excellent. We always felt welcomed. In the club lounge you get a great breakfast, afternoon tea and a pre-dinner cocktail which is not only cocktail but also loads of food as well. We had a late check-out until 3pm and even then, we were offered to stay for the cocktail hour as well because our flight was late at night. Nevertheless, drinks and cookies are offered in the lounge all day long.
The pool is very nice as well, you get extra towels and it is very clean.
The hotel is situated perfectly in the business centre of KL. Shopping malls, Skytrain and many restaurants are just around the corner. The lobby bar was very nice as well, maybe the band was a bit too loud, but the nice atmosphere and an attentive service compensated for that.
One more advice: There is a free bus named GoKL running just in front of the hotel and connecting Chinatown with Bukit Bintang (purple line) and one more circling around the business district from the Petronas to Bukit Bintang (green line)! You definitely don't necessarily need a taxi in KL to get around.
