Firstly, this residence is not a “boutique hotel”; it is a tower of apartments, some lived in, some rented. We stayed one night Sunday 23rd November 2011. I believe Tripadvisor is wrongly labelled; real name of these apartments is “D Villa Residence Hotel” as per agoda.com, address: 225, Jalan Ampang, KLCC, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Our experience was very poor.
We’d booked a 2 bed, 1 bath apartment.
Arriving at the front desk we immediately noticed the crappy state of the place, very run down and smelt.
Being 5 in our group we received only 2 room keys and 1 ELEVATOR key…we requested more but were told it’s not possible…so whenever someone went out they had to get security to let them up to their floor.
In the room we literally knocked back by the damp smell of it…it was foul.
Our third roll away bed had not been put in the room at yet…calling reception they said that it would cost more money, REPEATEDLY…we had to prove with our printed booking receipt that it was prepaid…lucky we had it on us.
The beds…….two words…..STAINED SHEETS.
Also, the location of this place makes travel to/from city centre a VERY congested journey (20mins+) at 6-8am and 5-7pm. Leaving to the airport via taxi though is pretty convenient near the highway.
Overall, an very average experience and couldn't wait to leave.
