Bold, bright tints of orange, yellow, red, burgundy and pink infuse the fabrics and contemporary furnishings of the large, high-ceilinged public spaces, which are decorated with stone sculptures and works by several Asian artists. The vast lobby merges with the open-plan La Cucina Mediterranean restaurant and its adjacent cocktail bar (which serves a mean dirty martini). The layout creates an integrated space for large business and convention groups, but it feels a little impersonal for private diners. Guests on the club floors will enjoy the airy Executive Lounge, which has floor-to-ceiling windows that yield views of the KL skyline.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms are much less kaleidoscopic than the public spaces, with muted white and gray walls offset by a dark patterned carpet, minimal blond wood furnishings, a glass-topped desk and a wall-mounted TV with satellite channels. The overall feel is comfortable, if slightly uninspired, although purple lamp shades add a flash of color, and framed photos of old and new Kuala Lumpur provide a sense of place. The bathrooms too are spare in detail, with gray tiling, a powerful walk-in rain shower and a standalone bathtub. Active travelers seeking a spot of in-room exercise can take advantage of the set of dumbbells and the yoga mat stashed in the wardrobe.
This is a large hotel, and the facilities are sized accordingly. The centerpiece restaurant is La Cucina, which serves fresh-baked pizzas and pastas, plus “open-face pizzas,” baked flatbreads topped with a choice of meats, vegetables and spices, but without the cheese. Guests wanting to work out can use the well-equipped fitness center, which has a heated indoor pool. The property currently lacks spa and wellness facilities, although a branded spa is slated to open in late 2014. Conventions and weddings are a strong suit, and the facilities are impressive, with two large ballrooms and 12 function rooms.
In the Area
Bangsar South is a business and residential district a 20-minute drive southwest of downtown. A highway and a light rail line run directly to the city center, but the immediate area has a developmental feel, with offices, apartment buildings and a convention center under construction. The nightlife scene is lively, though, with the University of Malaya student population and office workers supporting a spread of cafés and bars (popular picks include the English-style Sid’s Pub, the Malaysian-style Old Town White Coffee House and Campur Campur, a casual food court serving Malay dishes). The Bangsar Village shopping center is a five-minute drive from the hotel.
How to Get There
Arrived here on my last night of the trip, welcomed by very friendly staff who assisted with my luggage. Check-in was smooth and quick.
Room looks well furbished with big welcoming comfy bed. Nice bathroom and a very huge bathtub to relax and unwind.
Reading lights were very helpful (In my opinion)
The exterior may look tired but dont be fooled by it. Step in and feel the surprise and warm!
