The Maya Hotel had long been on my list of must try in KL. It always sounded like a unique boutique hotel at the center of the golden triangle, and I finally had the chance to try it
Thanks to a last minute reservation, we ended up having a 15% discount, leading to 347 RM per night before tax and service charge: pretty decent for the location
Upon arrival, the staff was friendly and granted me (but not my colleague?) with a room upgrade. I was very excited until I opened the door and found a huge room + living room.... totally empty: a king size bed, a small sofa facing a cabinet and two chairs in against the window. To be fair my colleague's room was of normal size and felt more cosy
In addition to feeling empty, the room was also very cold, with the AC set on 10 degrees when entering the premises. Even a hot shower in the beautiful bathroom and a bathrobe from the walk in wardrobe did not help.... A shame considering the bed was very comfortable and the shades very dark. We noted the windows were not thick enough to block the sound of the prayer at 5am.....
We did not get to try the breakfast as the price was a little expensive (65 RM) but the proximity to KLCC (litteraly 5min walk) made the trick.
So overall, a little disappointed, and still have not found a better deal than Traders Hotel. The search for the best hotel in KL continues...
