We stayed in the 1BR unit which came with complimentary breakfast. The hotel is situated in the Menara HCB/HSC ? Tower. The unit is spacious has a living room with attached, fully equipped kitchen with a microwave, hot plate, fridge, washing machine,sufficient cooking utensils,a dining table and chairs. The bedroom has an attached closet. There is a small separate area for storing the baggage. Bathroom has a bathtub and small shower area. The unit was well furnished and spotless. You can get a view of the Petronas from higher floors. Breakfast is served in an adjoining restaurant. The menu is limited and repetitive,becomes boring from the second day. The crossiants and pastries were good. There is an omlette station, besides fruits, juice, milk etc. However, the dinner we ordered through room service was excellent with large portions. Remember to order before 10 pm. If you are checking in at the hotel late in the night , please have your dinner at the airport. We would have gone hungry had we not carried some noodle packets with us. There is a booklet which has phone numbers and menu of several restaurants which deliver food. But, again almost all close by 10 pm. Avg cost per dish is 15-25 RM. If you stand facing the hotel and walk for 5 minutes (slow pace) to your right, you will come across the Ampang Park Shopping Centre (diagonally opposite), which has a Mac Donalds. This is a major traffic junction and may be a problem to cross with kids and elderly. If you take a left from the hotel and walk for 10- 15 mins you will come to the Hock Choon Supermarket. The best bet would be to order through phone.The hotel has a shuttle service (limited hours) which takes you to KLCC and Pavillion MAll, one way. Book in advance at reception, as limited seats. Almost all the Malls are within 5-10 mins by taxi of each other and cost 8-12 RM by meter. Some are within walking distance. We went from KLCC - Menara (good rate for money exchange)- Pavillion - Sunsei Wang (best rate for money exchange)- Berjaya Time Square and then back to Ampang Park. If you are going to Genting negotiate with taxis at these malls and ask to pick you from the hotel (100RM was the best we got). From KLIA to Somerset we took a prepaid taxi from the airport counter (85 RM). MUST visit the swimming pool on the top floor for the view of the Petronas at night.
