In Kuala Lumpur, it’s all about location — and this five-star tower in the heart of Bukit Bintang has one of the best in the Golden Triangle. By day, hit up the hotel’s air-conditioned squash court, then cool off at the lagoon-style swimming pool before retreating to your comfortably appointed room. Foodies are spoiled for choice in this neighborhood, but the 468-room resort cooks up plenty of reasons to dine on-site, with four restaurants serving traditional Cantonese, Japanese and Mediterranean fusion fare. The on-site Pulse Ultra Club, opened in June 2013, throws the after-party in these parts, with energizing music and panoramic views to match.
In the Area
An easy walk to Pavilion Shopping Mall, Fahrenheit 88, Starhill Gallery and a mass of high-end retailers including Louis Vuitton, Prada and Chanel, the resort also enjoys easy pedestrian access to Central Market and the National Art Gallery. Beyond the retail jungle, take a day trip to the National Zoo to interact with over 5,000 animals native to Asia and Africa; visit the 28-acre Istana Negara compound, the official residence of the King of Malaysia, overlooking the scenic Klang River; or explore the famed limestone Batu Caves for an afternoon. Save time for a photo-op at the iconic Thean Hou Temple, a six-tiered modern marvel that draws architectural inspiration from Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism.
How to Get There
Stayed in the Club Room for a night and felt like royalty. The hotel is rather well kept and the room itself was very plush with a view over the city. It's located in the middle of the city so once you step out you'll get onto the bustling streets with plenty of food options nearby.
Favourite part had to be the special lounge that we were allowed to step into at any time to grab a bite to eat or complimentary drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic).
Hi i stayed 2nights with GMKL frm 5 -7Nov and i must say this will be e last time i will be staying with GMKL.Please do not press any panic button just yet its nothing of that sort.You guys had been fantastic during my stay not only this time but from all my previous stay.In terms of service rendered to me during my stay those staff who i came into contact with were excellent.Service wise i must say u guys score full marks from me hands down.From e Club Lounge team to the HSKP team down to e Mill Cafe staff e Concierge guys & not forgetting e Security guys you all has been very nice to me during my stay.Yes some nitty gritty issues did came up along e way but its too trivial to be mentioned in this review.The only problem is e excitement of staying in this hotel is longer in me anymore.I started to get bored with e food, e atmosphere, e ambience & e surroundings despite its excellent location.My room is e only thing that im not getting tired of & i love every inch of my room.It has been my favourite room ever since.Its chucked right in e corner of e building & love its privacy.Though we parted ways rest assured i will give good reviews about this hotel to all my associates who intend to stay with GMKL.Last but not least i would like to say thank you for ur hospitality & for being an excellent host.
The standard of this hotel is very high. Even the cheapest rooms are of a good size and are in immaculate condition, The hotel is situated in Bukit Bintang which is the heart of where the nightlife is, Right next door is the Pavilion Mall which on the lower ground floor has the most amazing food hall where prices are so low as to defy reason.(£3 to £5 for anything Malayan, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese,Vegetarian etc). Alongside all this are also upmarket restaurants so whatever your budget there is something for you.
The one letdown for the hotel is the buffet breakfast which although it does have some European style breakfast items i.e.Juices, Cereals, Eggs etc it is aimed more at the Asian market for which there is a wide choice.
4 Star hotel in the heart of Bukit Bintang.
Pros: Great location in bukit bintang area.
Rooms are clean, spacious. all expected in the hotel
Cons: Overall nothing to complain, just that the hotel needs some freshing-up
Last time I was here (around June - July 2018), they have this ridiculous system during breakfast where we have to queue and sign a receipt before we can enter the coffee shop. But during this visit I can see that they don’t implement the system any more. Thank God.
Old furniture inside the room. Even the TV is still from the 90s. 😅
