Given the wonderful reviews posted by other travellers I wonder if we were just unlucky with our stay, or perhaps my expectations were too high given the cost of the Hyatt compared to other hotels in KK.
Our room was comfortable and large, and had been recently refurbished -the decor was pleasant but not outstanding. The shower was also very new and roomy, although the water pressure was poor. When we called room service twice to request extra towels and an ice bucket, the ice bucket came around 2 hours later and the towels not at all. We booked a deluxe sea view room, but had only a partial view of the sea.
The location of the hotel is good, right next to the water, and near the ferry terminal to the islands and the Wisma Merdeka shopping mall. The best part of our stay at the hotel was definitely the pool- absolutely the best hotel pool we have seen for a long time. Our boys also enjoyed the breakfast, with made to order waffles and pancakes.
