Why do i say E&O KL is an my ideal home? The decor is what i would love to have for my future home! Love the island kitchen and the spacious rooms. The room I had was looking out to the Petronas / KLCC Tower.
I stayed in a 2-bedrm apartment on the 17th floor and it was so well-equipped. It had chopsticks, plates to cereal bowls. Easy for the big family who would buy food back.
The cleaning team was non-intrusive and efficient. The only downside was the location - it was not quite near malls but it was within walking distance to the Raja Chulan Monorail. Taxi drivers may not know the hotel by its name nor address; so it is best to tell them it is near the old MAS training building (advice from a driver that i had booked from the airport and back).
Breakfast was at the Delicious restaurant at another area. The wing was apparently the old site of the St Mary's school. THere were beautiful old black and white photos of the St Mary school - pity no other architecture facades were retained. Back to the food -- it was the same food for my entire stay in KL. I asked the server if they ever changed the food -- she advised that the menu is changed every week, not daily. So, be prepared.
Oh, a street market is held at the street leading up to the E&O every friday from late morning to late noon. U can get chendol (a local dessert drink), fried local snacks and rice with dishes. I would probably stay somewhere nearer to the malls if shopping is on the cards in the future but the E&O really stands out.
There seems to be a good Japanese restaurant in the vicinity - it was full when i wanted to go. That will be for me to try the next time. there is also a good thai massage place on the second level of the st mary's residence wing. Rama Thai or something like that. My parents tried the foot reflexology and it was RM$45 per person for 30mins i believe.
