It was a match made in heaven. We booked this 'hotel' from a third party website under the 'guess-your-hotel-but-pay-less' gimmick. We didn't know what to expect, so we blindly paid online, due to its good price. The only information we have was that it is a 5-star hotel near Bukit Bintang.
We arrived at KL without any expectations of this mystery hotel. When we arrived at the address, we were geniunely surprised that this hotel is actually a serviced apartment. It was just opened a few weeks prior to our arrival, and I'm sure that we were one of the first few guests to check in.
What can i say. The room we got, was gorgeous. My wife was in awe and she was-
"Dear, come and see this pull out table!"
"Whoa, they got a walk in wardrobe!!!"
"The toilet is heeeyyuuuuge!!!"
"I can cook something tonight!! Whoah!!!"
-for about 10 mins when we first stepped in the room. I "Yes dear, that's nice" all the way. I was more concern about the wi-fi and whether I could get a connection. The internet connection had its hiccups, but hey, the hotel is just a few weeks old.
We stayed there for 2 nights. The location is very close to Pavillion, so the missus had a good time shopping. We found ourselves looking forward to go back to our rooms most of the times. The swimming pool at the 1st floor (I think) was good enough for a few laps. Breakfast was minimal, but it was enough for us as we are not breakfast people.
Housekeeping was prompt and efficient. Too efficient, in fact. I could clearly remember that we did not put the 'clean my room' tag outside our door. But still, they rang the bell and knocked and asked if we needed our rooms cleaned up. It was quite an interruption in fact. But they are nice people, just doing their jobs. I politely said no. However, it was the same thing the next day. You just have to smile at their enthusiasm. =)
All in all, it was a nice short romantic getaway for us. We enjoyed our stay. Very. And yes, we need not think twice about where we would be staying this April. Thanks to Mr Iqmal who answered our email in a short span of time. We'll be there again.
