I've just returned from a 3-night stay in this hotel. The hotel offers excellent value for the money. I had a room at the 18th floor, it was huge with a marvellous view onto the Petronas Twin Towers, equipped with an iron, ironing table, electric tea cattle with a selection of tea and coffee. The bathroom was huge as well, it had both a shower cabin and a bath-tub and a toillet in a separate small room. The hotel staff is extremelly kind and helpful. As soon as you ask something from your room over the phone, they immediately send someone to help you. Breakfast offfers a variety of food and different cuisines. You simply cannot be hungry there. I only didnt' like bread and rolls, but it is not up to the hotel, that is how they taste in the country. So, I recommend toast for breakfast. The reception area and the lobby cafe look really luxiourous. On your arrival, you get a voucher for a free of charge 10-minute massage and a tea in the hotel spa. I booked a 60-minute massage and it was woderful, I reall enjoyed it. There is also a big fitness room next to the spa, which I didn't try. I tried the swimming-pool, which is not very big but still big enough for a city hotel. The hotel location cannot be better. It is in the walking distance from the Petronas and KLCC. There is an excellent shopping mall (Pavillon) in a 5-minutes walking distance from the hotel.
I would certainly recommend this hotel.
