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
Very good service from shawn from concierge. Our company will come this hotel again. Lastly, thank you for all the staff at the hotel. Well done. Food are acceptable. Ambiance are good as well. Hope i will get tgis goid service as well when i come next timw.
Stayed at Pullman Bangsar more than 10 times. Each time they did not leave me disappointed. The staff are helpful and polite. Especially Vivien, Belle and Linda in the lounge - they are always very attentive and ready to offer a coffee with biscuits or soft drinks when we were in the lounge. Staff like them makes the stay very pleasant and enjoyable. Locationwise, it may not walking distance to shops or eating places but it’s only a short ride to Mid valley. Easy to get to and from KLIA without going through the city jam.

His sincere n thoughtfulness really made us feel superb....thank you Mr Kamahl...we are from Singapore...love your attentiveness..
A fine hotel befitting the Pullman chain. A few quirks though, trying pressing the 1st floor button in the lift. You have to bend all the way down unless you’re a very short person. And a picture of the lamp in the room with a 165 cm man underneath.
Apart from that the buffet breakfast (6am onwards), lunch and dinner were excellent.
