6 nights from 26th December 2013 to 1st January 2014
The location is perfect, so close to everything in the hub of K.L. Sungei Wang & BB Plaza are only a few metres walk. BB monorail station is less than a minutes walk from the hotel. All the best shopping centres within Bukit Bintang area are only minutes from the hotel. With the new covered walkway from the back of the Pavilion, KLCC / Suria area is less than 15 minutes walk away.
This was our 7th stay in this hotel, over the last few years. This time we stayed for 6 nights. This hotel is now our home away from home. I can highly recommend this hotel, both for its location and the friendly staff.
We find all the staff in the lobby and reception area are all friendly and welcoming. In fact all the staff from the hotel are friendly and caring. When booking I had requested our usual room. On the 19th floor with a view towards the twin towers. This room is newly renovated and the view is wonderful.
Checkin was super quick Maha the night manager greeted us. We didn’t arrive at the hotel till midnight.
I much prefer when we are on the early morning flight and arrive at the hotel by 2pm.
Ordered room service. Food was ok but could do with some improvement.
Our room on the 19th Floor was tastefully decorated. A huge comfortable double bed. Flat screen TV mounted on the wall above the desk. Underneath this is a long bench with lots of room on top and an inbuilt desk for your laptop. Also under this bench was a fridge and a cupboard with tea/coffee cups and a kettle. A beautiful, fresh, crisp looking bathroom with huge fluffy towels. We had a wardrobe and an in-room safe. Every day, new toiletries are supplied. As usual a lemon was waiting for me to have with my cuppa.
We opted not to have breakfast with our room this time. Breakfast is good and varied. We are just not big breakfast eaters.
We had a problem with the fridge in our room. But after a call to reception, it was promptly replaced.
The pool is under cover, so you can use it, even if its raining. Its of a decent length, so you can do laps in it.
We have never used the pool, but were determined to do so this time. They have just finished renovating the pool area. Unfortuately the weather was unkind to us. Next time for sure.
We had a lovely view of all the fireworks going off on New Years Eve from our hotel room. Every direction that you looked in had fireworks.
We spend a lot of time in our hotel room this time. I was exhausted and just wanted to rest and sleep.
Looking after a mother who has advanced dementia is very hard.
We will certainly be coming back to the hotel. This year in June and again in July/ August, book ending a trip to Europe.
So looking forward to catching up with Abu, Sazrul, Maha and the other friendly staff.
