“One of the best hotels I've stayed in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2011

Of all my leisure and business travel, this hotel would definitely make a podium finish.

My room was spacious, well-appointed and most importantly, clean and quiet which all meant that I slept really well. Unlike some other hotels that try to cash in on the laundry charges, this hotel does provide an iron and ironing board in the room (without you having to call for it).

The only (albeit petty) negative I can think of - and almost every hotel is guilty of the same charge - is that there is no clock in the room so you need to use your phone or watch in the middle of the night to see the time.

As is usually the case in South East Asia, the service is welcoming and helpful.

The highlight of the hotel would be the breakfast. There are so many choices from pizza to dim sum; and cereal and roti bread to western favourites such as hash browns and baked beans. Just make sure you keep walking around the restaurant so you see all the options!

I highly recommend this hotel; especially for business travellers working near Petaling Jaya.

Stayed at the One World for 2 nights recently for business. Primary reason for choosing the hotel was because of its proximity to the office where my meetings were.

The positives:
1. check in was short and hassle free.
2. room was spacious, clean and well appointed.
3. access to internet FOC with decent speed
4. my stay included breakfast, good food with plenty of variety.
5. next door to a mall, which offers great malaysian shopping experience. you literally do not need to get to town.
6. clean and well equipped gym which opens at 6am and give you enough time to do a quick work out and get into office by 9am
7. good location, at least for me as it give quick access to the airport.

negatives:
am hard pressed to find one, except maybe the lobby decor could look better but that is just a personal observation.

A great place if you are here on business and don't need to be in KL. Even if you need to be in KL, would be a good change of pace and scenery. The mall is a great plus.

Great location next to the massive 1Utama shopping mall. Private hotel, service could be improved with more attentive staffs especially at checkin counter and concierge.

Cinnamon Cafe has great selection for breakfast and dinner. Friendly staffs and chefs.

One World is located in the city of Petaling Jaya, approximately 20km from Kuala Lumpur city and about 60km from KL International Airport.

We stayed one night at One World hotel to attend friends engagement party at Tropicana Golf club. By browsing the hotel website, quality sleep and service were expected but since One World hotel was located out of town, we did not exactly imagine it to be one of those top rated properties. However, upon entering our room, we were pleasantly surprised by the ample space, the cleanliness, and the comfy King bed - we simply couldnt wait to get underneath the duvet! We must add that although One World hotel was not a brand new property, the in-room furnitures and facilities have been kept in pristine condition. On the contrary, we recently visited a five-star hotel in Jakarta with significantly higher room rate but many wears and tears could be still be spotted.

The breakfast buffet was amongst the most extensive we have seen and regretted that we were only staying for one night! Considering it was Sunday morning, the dining area was not too chaotic and the buffet food filled us up untill 2pm. For late lunch, we just walked over to the connected One Utama mall which was extremely convenient and everything you need would be found there. Directions could be rather confusing if walking from old to new wings of the mall because you will easily get distracted by different variety of shops and restaurants.

If you need to be in Petaling Jaya, One World hotel is a place to book - hands down.

As a frequent traveller to KL, and guest of this hotel in particular, if there was something wrong to be found, I'd have found it! For anyone wanting to be out of the city centre, the location is excellent - though not served by trains back into the city, a cab is cheap and quick (though forget about peak hour after work). You're right next to 1 Utama shopping centre - fantastic in itself - and The Curve centre, with some great local outdoor eating and bars is a short walk away.
The hotel itself is much as you'd expect from a 3-4 year old hotel in this space. Rooms are good - junior suites are fantastic, and worth splurging on - and function rooms for events are more than adequate. However, it's the service that sets One World apart. Staff are typically smiling and welcoming, work to learn the names of guests, and make a business stay very easy. The management team is approachable, and quick to help with anything.
Of course, things don't always run perfectly - but the quick attention that meets any small concerns is reassuring.
So if the location suits - definitely the #1 hotel in the PJ area, and one I happily recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a city view - room numbers ending about 01-12. If offered a good deal to upgrade to a junior...

I recently stayed for two nights at the One World Hotel. I had a Junior Suite which was a perfect room, very spacious and well appointed. This room also includes access to the Peridot Club which is a great option to use for relaxing, grabbing some nice food and drinks during the cocktail hour, all no charge.

The hotel appears to be aimed at the business traveller and hosts many conferences and corporate sessions so it can be very busy. Overall a great hotel with good service.

Room Tip: The Junior Suite is a great option as it includes the Peridot Club and a range of free services.

Hotel with decent facilities. Breakfast buffet was pretty decent, amongst the most extensive I've had in KL. Being connected to One Utama shopping mall was a huge plus point.

Rooms are huge, service at the Peridot Club level was immaculate as expected.
