Na een goede nachtrust zijn we rustig opgestaan. We hebben gebruik gemaakt van het ontbijt buffet. Wat een keuze! Heb vanmorgen zelfs aan de nasi gezeten.... Het ontbijt was tot 10.30. Aan die tijd wordt strikt gehouden. Is het half 11 dan wordt alles direct opgeruimd, of je nu net binnen bent of niet... Anders maken ze zich niet zo druk om de tijd …
Getting out of India proved much more difficult than getting in. We grabbed a tuk tuk and headed to the airport early as with all the politicians coming to town today and all the extra police we were a little worried that some roads might be closed and there would be more checkpoints to get through.
So to actually get into the airport you …
Hey people! So far our trip in Malaysia has been great.
After an 8 hour plane ride, we managed to find our way to the hotel - with my amazing navigational skills :P The hotel is awesome, were on the 20th floor which overlooks part of the city and the Petronas Towers. It was about 33 degrees so we decided to walk back down the road …
Had a good 2 days in KL, nice Hotel, bit of a shock with the cost after a week in Vietnam.
There was a GP show on in the city, got to see Coulthard and Vettel do a test drive.
Did a bit of shopping and had a nice meal out, not much more to report.
Next stop Taman Negara Rain forrest...
Vi reiste fra det rosa hotellet på øya Langkawi med fly til storbyen Kuala Lumpur.
Vi var litt uheldige med plasseringen på flyet.. Fikk en unge som sparket i setet mitt i ryggen, og en bortskjemt unge forran oss som hylte og skrek for ingenting.. (han skrek på flyplassen også)
Flyturen var på ca en time og var så kort at jeg ikke rakk å …

Historical Traveler Reviews Dorsett Regency Kuala Lumpur
Could do better
I stayed here with my wife for 3 nights as part of a package deal. Not as good as I was hoping with slightly grimy rooms, and non-openable windows. Views were not bad for a centrally place hotel, but things generally felt average throughout.
The perfect place to stay
My husband and I stayed at this hotel when we were in Kuala Lumpur and were very impressed with the hotel and service. In a nutshell this hotel is one of the best value hotels you can find in KL (US$50/night). The location is terrific as it's very near to the Bukit Bintang shopping belt, the rooms are clean and virtually of 5-star standard and the service was also very good. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to KL.
Good value, great location
This hotel is well located for shopping. It represents good value for the Australian traveller as internet costs are approx $80 per room inc brekkie for two. The buffet breakfast was excellent, catering for both Western and Asian tastes.Some UK tourists complained that the sausages were "not like at home".Mmmm... Restaurant prices are similar to Australia, though expensive by KL prices. The rooms are well proportioned, but slightly shabby. The bathroom was excellent, lots of marble, and lots of hot water. All staff were friendly and helpful. The niggles - The pool is not heated, the spa is for men only, and check in is definately not before 2pm. I would recommend the Dorsett as long as you do not expect 5 star luxury at 4 star prices.
4 stars.. Not worth it
Location ~ very good. in the circle of happening places in Bukit Bintang.
Room condition ~ bad. stained and dirty carpet, stained sofa, mark on the walls, water drip in the bathroom, shower curtain has not been washed for centuries!
Other facilities ~ Swimming pool OK, Gim got the equipment from last century..
Overall ~ Bad condition for 4 stars rated hotel.. Luckily i just a short stay...
I have recently stayed for 9 nights at the 4 star Dorsett Regency Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The buffet breakfast is expansive and varied, with the choice of Continental pastries, cereals, hot foods, omlettes/eggs cooked to your preference, Japanese and other various cultural foods. This hotel is situated opposited the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and closeby the J.W. Marriott Hotel, in the area named "The Golden Triangle" - referring to the abundance of shopping plazas in this immediate area. Pricewise, it is no-where near the expensiveness of the prior mentioned 5 star hotels, but the hotel service is very favourable. I booked the accommodation on the Web (twin room with 2 x large sized beds + fridge + average sized bathroom/toilet + breakfast for 2 = AUD $80/room. Great value, I feel!) The staff are very friendly and helpful, always smiling and pleasant. 'Doris' on the front tour desk has a wealth of knowledge.
The Dorsett Regency is a relatively nice hotel. I really liked the staff, friendly and altogether accommodating. However, at 10am, when you have had a long night, the last thing you want is housekeeping knocking on your door and waking you up. Housekeeping can't very well make the bed when I am still in it! Come back later!
The food was good. I really enjoyed the breakfast buffet! I also liked the room service very much (although a tad expensive).
The room was really nice. Spacious with huge comfortable bed. However, the carpet had some really bad stains on it. Not the end of the world.
Overall, not a bad hotel at all, but I would like to try one closer to the center of things.
Can be improved
Waited 10 minutes for the concerige to appear.
Missed our breakfast and the staff kindly allowed us to have toast bread and orange juices in our room. However, the service staff brought along a bill of > RM40 for just the toast bread and 2 glass of juices.
Despite explaining the situation, service staff requested me to sign on the bill and only went off after confirmation over the phone with his staff.
However, the item was in the bill again when I checked-out.
I felt that there should be communication within their operation and the service staff could have been more polite.
Overall, the room is clean.
A great stay
We had a great stay at the Dorsett Regency in K.L. from March 7to 14th.
The staff were excellent and most helpful. The concierge was most helpful as were the counter staff. We were upgraded to the 19th floor at no extra cost and the breakfast menu was more than adequate. The transport to and from the airport (which was arranged by the hotel) was on time and got us to the airport with time to spare. I could not speak more highly of our stay at the hotel and our trip to K.L. We will certainly be returning to K.L. and the Dorsett in the near future.
