KL Plaza Suites Kuala Lumpur
Ranked #309 of 353 Hotels in Kuala Lumpur
Reviewed December 30, 2012

So the only 2 positive things are what are mentioned above. It was a clean room with clean bathroom and bed and the housekeeping staff did a great job. The location means you are right above Farenheit 88 mall (formerly KL Plaza) - but at night or early morning during hours the mall isn't open, it's a rats maze through un-signposted dark doors and corridors to get in and out!

Check-in: no help or assistance given to check in or deal with issues. No help with bags, no directions given, no telling us of breakfast included or not (we presumed not...), nothing!

The room: very spacious, although clean, smelled of moth balls and toilet cleaner - overpoweringly so. TV didn't work but aircon was great that's all we needed. Floor towels had holes in it.

Corridors: have no carpets so the noise is SO loud from other guests, doors slamming etc.

Pool: basic and smelled a bit. No towels given so had to send one of our party back upstairs to get the ones we'd already used, because we had already dipped.

No parking included - you can park under the mall but you have to pay.

Won't be going back there.

I have stay in 1 bedroom apartment without living room. The size of the room quite big with 1 double bed and 1 single bed. The deco of the room is quite old but if they take an effort to put some painting or decoration, it can brighthen up the room little bit since it quite dark. However we don't mind too much about it.We stay 3D2N and until late evening of 2nd day, the housekeeping doesn't clean our room until we checkout the next day. I have no problem with the bed and sleep well. The location is the best in the middle of KL, near to all major shopping complex (pavillion, sg wang plaza, low yat plaza, lot10 and etcs) in walking distant,Heaven for those who like shopping. There are lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from. There are even 'arab street' nearby if you wanted to try some eastern dishes and lots of muslim halal food around as well.

Located above the Farenheit 88 shopping mall in Bukit Bintang area. The Pavilion Mall is just across the road. A neat Coffee House is just outside with free wi-fi. At first we were given an older suite, but with black marks, peeling plaster and damp marks on the walls and a broken couch. Totally uninhabitable and nothing like the picture above. We requested a renovated suite but were still very disappointed. Although it was fairly clean, it had very basic furniture, ragged curtains on the windows, one picture on the wall, very old TV with about 4 stations (3 of which were local) and no remote. Worst of all were the matresses. Hard as a rock. Like sleeping on a board. I had to put 8 towels under the sheets before I could get to sleep. The bathroom was modernised and had plenty of hot water. All in all, not the kind of place I would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Room C187 had a balcony overlooking the Marriot Hotel pool.

We stayed at the KL Plaza Suites for a week in October 2012. I booked it through RCI Holidays. It was really cheap so and I had read some pretty average reviews on it. The building also incorporates Farenheit Suites, which have been renovated well. It is not well marked on the outside - you need to ask the taxi drivers to take you to Farenheit - the reception is on the 5th floor. Best entry is from the side street.

The Plaza Suite rooms - we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms - were spacious and clean, but in need of a make over/refurbishment. We were not happy with the initial apartment and took about half an hour checking others available until we found a better one. The beds in the first one were rock hard!

Overall, it was good value (I said it was cheap) and the location is excellent - right in the heart of Bukit Bintang shopping area of KL. Easy access to the public transport - monorail and free shuttle buses. The facilities were pretty good - big pool and gym, although the change rooms adjacent were pretty bad - again, refurbishment required.

Not too hard to find the entrance as most of the "Teksi" drivers know where it is and when you arrive it is easier to follow the signeage to "farenheit 88" which happens to have their check in etc right next door to the RCI check in on the 5th floor. They have a decent pool which is cleaned daily but everything screams 70's and basic. The double rooms are basic but functional unless you want to spend a lot of time resting in them, ours was serviced each day.
Biggest complaint was the bed. It was hard, like really hard. You may as well sleep on a carpeted floor it was that hard.
You will have to take this into account as well as its excellent location before making a decision, based on cost it was worth it based on comfort it was not

Room Tip: There is a night club underneath which operates only a couple of nights but I did not hear it for lo...

The location is great. Pavilion and Lot 10 right next door, covered walkway to the towers. You couldn't want better. Everything about the hotel was bad. The entry, the lifts, the reception, the security all poor. No wi-fi in 2012, you're joking. But the worst was the bed. We could not sleep at all so we packed our things in the morning and asked for a different room. We were given one which had a marginally better bed and we stayed because we couldn't get a refund.
