Doubletree Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The hotel

Rising high in the Kuala Lumpur city landscape, the DoubleTree by Hilton offers upscale accommodation in a great location, close to all attractions. The metro is a short stroll away whisking you to shopping malls galore, world-class restaurants and Chinatown with its vibrant night markets. After a busy day sightseeing, relax by the outdoor saltwater swimming pool, catching the last of the sun’s rays. There’s also a fitness centre for those keen to upkeep their exercise regime and a spa for those who’d prefer an indulgent massage or beauty treatment. For authentic Malaysian cuisine, look no further than Makan Kitchen with its live, interactive show kitchens detailing the journey of raw ingredients from the pan to the plate. There’s also Tosca, situated beside the swimming pool and serving traditional Italian specialities in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Connoisseurs of the grape are in for a treat at Cellar Door, which specialises in wines from around the world or simply unwind in Axis Lounge, watching the world go by over coffee and a delicious slice of cake.

I visited KL with my family of 5. We had a lovely time staying at Doubletree by Hilton. The staff is very understanding. They do a lot of variety for breakfast at Makan Kitchen. Although, there was not much choice available for vegetarians but @Devansh was a saviour. He would place special request with the chef at Makan kitchen to prepare vegetarian dishes for all of us. He did his best to make us feel comfortable at the breakfast, every morning. He is very hospitable. I wish him all the luck for his future. The hotel also houses the Intermark mall. The pool side is aesthetically beautiful and has a good bar by its side. This hotel is highly recommended!! Travel date- 03/11/2019- 06/11/2019. Read less

We used the lounge for our entire stay & we liked change of the menu. We like to thank Ash, Azfar, Zerene, Stephani & the rest of the team for their excellent service. The lounge also has a patio area which is great to take photos. The breakfast in Makan kitchen was out of this world. The food was so tasty & great value for money.

Had a great stay here, beds really comfortable and rooms well appointed. Found staff extremely helpful and friendly. Food at all in house restaurants was good. Close to KLCC (Petronas Towers) and a short train ride (from Sampang Park station) to KL Sentral railway station so easy to get to and from airport

Well situated above a shopping mall, close to Petronas Tower and with good public transport nearby, the hotel is all that you would expect -excellent, speedy check-in and out, spacious comfortable rooms, with all facilities working well, good breakfast choice ( poor selection of western cold items, though) etc. However, a) the lift/elevator service was extremely slow - 10 minute waits even at non busy times were not unusual b) decor in public rooms and my bedroom is becoming tired. Despite the "average" rating, I shall select this hotel should I visit KL in the future. Read less
