It’s been years since the last time I visit Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and I miss it! I admit that Malaysian food is one of the best Southeast Asian cuisine. The local food is mouth-watering and I love the unpretentious Asian-inspired delicacies. It is just so unique and full of culture.
Last week I had five night meetings in KL and I was pleased to work and play in ParkRoyal Hotel. For those times when you’re looking for some casual and affordable fare in a relaxed environment, ParkRoyal got you covered. The whole space feels nicely and comfortable, the inroom dining food is always delivered on time (20 mins or less), staff is professional and friendly, and the location is the best. It’s near in shopping centres, night markets and all the must makan places in KL.
Travel from KLIA to ParkRoyal hotel: Cab is about 45 mins – 52mins / Subway is about 30 mins – 40 mins. RM 55 one way ticket from KLIA to KL Sentral. From KL Sentral you can take a cab to ParkRoyal hotel. Cab fare is RM 20 and within 10-15mins drive.
Location: 5 minutes walk to Central Business District. It is near to shopping centres and night market. From the ParkRoyal hotel to Bukit Bintang is just about 3-4 mins walk. I had 5,000 steps from the hotel when I jalan-jalan (walk) within Bukit Bintang.
Service & Facilities: staff is professional and accommodating. I was able to check-in early at 9am. Standard check-in is usually from 2pm onwards. However, when you request for early check-in the hotel may accommodate your request.
Rooms: Always clean, and it has a large bathrooms.
Inroom dining: They have a variety of menu to offer, however if you are on budget you can find many restaurants outside the hotel. If you prefer to walk, just cross the street and you can find Berjaya mall.
Internet access: Fast and free for all guests. I was able to do my work online without any problems. Even during peak hours the internet was fast.
Personal reviews: If you are on a budget, this the perfect hotel for you. The room is affordable and the location is near to shopping centres and offices. However, this hotel needs a renovation, especially in their deluxe room and other facilities.
