Excellent location Friendly staff
The hotel interior design is modern and it has a rooftop pool. The pool is not very large or deep but it is nice to have a refreshing swim when you are staying in the city and it is 30+ degrees outside. The hotel provides a welcome drink (non-alcoholic) voucher for the hotel bar and also has 3 welcome drinks in the room’s refrigirator (also non-alcoholic). Our room was very spacious, so was the bathroom and the shower, loved it! We also had the view to Petronas tower, which was nice. Even though we did not feel very personalized and friendly approach from the staff during our check-in (in comparison to some other hotels in Malaysia), they had prepared us a warm greeting in the room - cake and towels folded as swans, because we were staying there during our honeymoon. That was lovely! We also very much enjoyed the breakfast buffet and a-la-carte menu (both Western and Asian options). I must say that this hotel had one of the best breakfast offers from all 5 hotels where we stayed in Malaysia. Also, as we were travelling with a car, the hotel provided us free underground parking space. Location of the hotel was also excellent!
- The pool bar was quite pricy. - Even though the hotel had informed us about the free underground parking space, it had very limited spots, thus one of the nights we had to search for a different parking ourselves because the place was full.
Location was superb! Stone throw away from Bukit Bintang and Jalan Alor! Awesome pool, great Malibu vibe!
Bed was a little too soft.
We found everything to our satisfaction. The staff were very pleasant, the room well appointed and the location very good. All in all good value for money.
no breakfast included during my stay.
not much choice in the bar refrigerator.
