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
Enjoy a 2 night stay at the hotel which is conveniently located next to one of the favorite shopping spot ( Next to Pavilion) . Room was comfortable but soundproofing should be improved as we still can hear sound from the streets although the room was located on the 13rd Floor.
I stayed here for 3 nights on 10-13 May. It is a nice hotel, extremely well located (next to the Pavilion, KL's premier shopping mall), comfortable and friendly. This time I booked a room which gave me access to the executive lounge, which was excellent: a separate check in on the 18th floor; very nice food and good wine during the 5.30-8.30pm evening session; and helpful staff, who amongst other things found out where I could buy Chinese wedding decorations. The concierge staff on level 1 were also helpful, especially the young Malay man who did a magnificent job of wrapping my wedding decorations in a manner whereby they could be safely carried.
Unfortunately, there are serious problems with the card system for the hotel lifts. Not once, but 4-5 times, the lift did not recognize my card. I encountered 3 other guests with the same problem. Each time the level 1 staff issued a new card .... but then it happened again. This became very annoying. Clearly this is a systemic problem which the hotel needs to fix ASAP.
When I checked out, I asked the concierge for a taxi. I told him I don't need a special car, just a taxi. Instead he called an unmarked, unmetered vehicle with a fixed price of RM30 to KL Sentral (nearly double what I had paid for this trip when I arrived at the hotel). This was at about 9.10-15am on Saturday. I didn't have time to argue, but feel that the concierge deliberately disregarded my request. Is he or the hotel getting a kick-back?
Despite these two problems, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would happily stay again.
A good property in the middle of the city, walking distance to the Twin towers, next to the malls, with loads of food options around the corner. The breakfast spread is amazing. The service was impeccable.
Beautiful lobby. Luxury design.
Room is spacious & convinience with alot of amenities. Many sockets, charger cable,....
Doormans rarely smile with guest. But receptionist is great especially Jojo and Michelle.
My BK is included breakfast. But at the restaurant on 1 floor take long queue for waiting to sign BF bill.
I asked the old hotess: why I have to sign while I already provided my passport to FO upon checkin? You have my info in your system already right? The hotess gave me an answer with cold face: We dont have your info unless you sign, write down your name and your room number, sir.
Beautiful hotel, but staff should be well trained about attitude.
i've been stayed for 2 nights on business trip, and we enjoyed!
the staffs were friendly, The room is clean and spacious, a few walks to the nearest shopping mall which is like fahrenheit88 and pavilion KL
