Our room was comfortable and had a great view of The Petronas Towers. Breakfast selection was extensive and the food well prepared. Walking to the Towers was easy or a free shuttle to them was run by the hotel. We enjoyed drinks and food in the Sky Bar. If you want seating with a view you do need to book in advance. I would recommend this hotel

With thanks to the GM, Christian Nannuci, and the wonderful reservations team, we left KL with wonderful memories. I really felt the hotel's sincere approach to fix problems I had during my first stay one year ago. You won't regret choosing a room with such a grand view of the twin towers! Very pleasant and so comfortable rooms. Quality bathroom amenities that is worth mentioning- Locitaine. My family was very happy with the wide selection of aromatic and healthy breakfast options served at Gobo. After breakfast, catch the hotel buggy and you're in Suria KLCC within minutes. Whip back from shopping, Hop into the bath tub for a warm soak. If you have kids, there is a superbly-maintained kids water park at KLCC Park just next to the hotel. In the evenings, sip on as much perfectly-made cocktails at the club lounge. Mmmmm Our city vacation couldn't get any better than this! We looked forward to seeing the team at club lounge everyday. Mr. Sina and the friendly staff (Gerald, a few sweet ladies and gentlemen) were always at hand with helpful advice and pleasant conversations. All in all, excellent stay! Read less

We stayed here for 2 nights on a trip through Malaysia..wow what a view from the hotel room. Fantastic view of the towers. Room 1503. Hotel runs a buggy back and forth to the towers, though it’s only a few minutes walk through gardens it was well received in the incredible heat. We went up to the sky bar for cocktails and whilst busy up there when I said we were residents the waiter kindly made a table available. Returning from sightseeing one afternoon we enjoyed a swim in the pool. Good choice and good service at breakfast. Staff all very polite and helpful. We were told about the overhead walkways and were able to navigate our way over to the large hawker food market. I was very happy with hotel. Read less

We stayed at this hotel for four nights , just for sight seeing in KL and relaxing. The hotel is very centrally located just next to the KL Convention centre; through this you could walk in about 10 to 15 minutes to the Pavillion shopping centre with lots of food outlets & then to the main Bukit bintang area , a very lively & vibrant area. To the other side of the hotel you see the Petronas Towers & there you get a big mall called Suria Mall with lots of shops and cafes. Therefore the location is excellent. The checking in was very good & quick. We had a room with the Petronas Twin Tower view & the view was amazing. What struck us most about this hotel was the great service , efficiency and attitude of the staff in every department. We had a Club room which entitled us to the use of the Club Lounge on the 32nd floor & here again with an amazing view of the twin towers. The lounge has hot food only for two hours between 5 - 7pm though you don't get much of a selection the quality of food was good. Here again the staff was excellent. Mr.Jack Hii really went out of his way to help us to make a few restaurant reservations. A remarkably efficient & helpful young man. The staff also went out of the way to get my husband some vegetarian food - there was Ms. Sherry who was very attentive & would inquire every day what vegetarian food he needed . Then Zhi Shing , Shaquil & others whom I cannot remember who gave an excellent service. A drawback of the lounge facilities was that it did not have any food during the rest of the day except cookies & a few soft drinks ; yet it was alright since you are out most of the day. The breakfast at the Gobo chitchat restaurant was very good with a wide selection of food ranging from Malaysian ,chinese , western ,Indian and Japanese with a selection of fresh fruit juices ; here again the staff , including the chefs were very efficient & Dwayn who was our steward on three occasions was very helpful. We had drinks at the Sky Bar at the top most level by the side of the indoor pool. A fantastic view of KL but this bar area tends to be quite stuffy & hot especially when its crowded. Very good cocktails but on the day we ordered food from the menu , every item that we ordered was not available. The staff at the concierge was also very helpful. Overall a great hotel with great staff & would certainly come back. Read less
