Kuala Lumper

A travel blog entry by makkah


... a long boring flight to Amsterdam I bought a couple of different authors. As I have been to Kuala Lumper before there is nothing of any great interest to me but I did think a visit to the Butterfly house would be interesting, after all everyone loves butterfly’s including me, and yes I did spend a good part of the afternoon roaming about the park, when some of the larger butterfly’s landed on your arm they would tickle, especially if you have hairy arms and I ...

Chilling in KL

... other name brands that I cannot afford, and probably never will. Outside the mall it is 36 degrees C and about 90% humidity, inside by comparison it is cold as due to the over zealous air conditioning.

On my way back to the airport I got totally lost, by again getting off a stop too early in excitement. J. Holland would be proud as I used zen navigation to find my way to the station. I basically followed 2 builders and a road worker who looked ...

... for Barbara for more than 2 hours but she didnīt show up. Even though we were a bit worried we decided to go to our hostel because there was nothing more we could do at that particular moment. While I was waiting on the platform, Gonzalo went to the nearby Internet café to check if Barbara hadnīt left us a message. Her flight landed on time and we didnīt find any messages from her side so we could only assume that everything had gone according to the plan.

... own views that it is BS. She is learning that it's 'rude to stare' but people will do it to us anyway. She knows that kissing is classed as indecent behaviour in a Muslim country but that mummy and daddy still love each other. And she has learnt about several types of place of worship and the calls to prayer. Oh, and she also feels bad when she eats veg, just in case someone was reincarnated as broccoli. She likes to thank the trees for making our air on a ...

Lots of sightseeing!

... big and was surrounded by water features, there are waterfeatures everywhere in KL! . Whilst we were there, a camera crew was also there filming for what looked like a scene for a film.

On our way back we went and looked around the city gallery museum, this showed us a bit of the history of the city and places to visit in the surrounding area which was quite helpful. There was also a model of the whole city made out of little wooden ...

Great location

We only stayed here for 1 night passing through KL into Colombo. This was a good hotel - very central and within walking distance to Bukit Bintang, the monorail, Petronas Twin Towers, etc. Staff were very professional and friendly. Also incredibly helpful at sorting out a cab to the airport at 3am and presenting us with all our options (rather than just recommending we take a hotel cab/car).

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Equatorial Kuala Lumpur

It is a nice hotel


I stayed in Hotel Equatorial Kuala Lumpur in early March 2006 for 4 nights. On the whole, it is a nice hotel. The price was reasonable, and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. It is conveniently located (close to monorail station and KLCC). The efficient and helpful staff impressed me very much. When I left the hotel heading for the airport, I needed a large plastic bag for my three boxes of cakes. I asked a hotel staff for help and she tried her very best to look for one for me right away. I find this very impressive and I will definitely recommend this hotel to those who are planning to visit Kuala Lumpur.

Great hotel, would definitely go again


Just come back from two seperate stopovers staying at Equatorial on way out and back from New Zealand.

A place to Stay


I had stayed at the EQ in Vietnam and thought I would try this one in KL. I found the staff were very very helpful and the service first rate, the only problem I found was that the B/fast (Buffet) was a little cold each morning. The location of the Hotel is really great, just far enough away from the main shopping area but well within walking distance (10mins). It is a Hotel I will say to people "go there and try it", I will be staying there again shortly, a good place to stay in KL.




We really liked this hotel. When we pulled up, we weren't really sure what we'd be getting - it looks a bit dated from the outside - but it's nice on the inside (only, no seats in the entire lobby - why?? Means you have to stand up when you're waiting for your transport)

Excellent value


In an "OK" location it looks nothing special from the outside. However, on arrival, one is treated with courtesy and efficiency. Room was quite huge. King size bed and above 80msq in size - don't know if they are all like this. Dial up facility in room at low cost to hotel ISP - excellent idea and cheap. Very good leisure facilities and a choice of five restaurants serving quality food at very cheap prices. Breakfast was quite lavish too.Extending checkout was no problem. Everyone was happy and pleasant.

Really great hotel


I was very impressed with this place. The outside isn't very attractive-old front. But the inside is very nice. The rooms are beautiful. A lot of wood accents. Attractive bar and restaurants. Only downside is that the bathrooms are quite small.

The location is very good. 10-15 minute walk to the Petronas Towers. Right in the middle of the golden triangle (lots of restaurants, bars, and shops).

Good value for money


Excellent location. Close to monorail station. Within easy walking distance of the Petronus Towers. Some rooms have good views of the towers. Rooms smaler than some Asia hotels but excellently fitted out. A very comfortable hotel offering good value for money.
