Hilton Kuala Lumpur
Travel Blogs from Kuala Lumpur
Today we had a sleep in and then spent the afternoon relaxing by the pool after our early morning trip to Penang the day before.
We went out to dinner at Ben's at KLCC then went to the Petaling Market for a look around on our way home. Unfortunately T must have eaten something that was a bit off at dinner so the market visit was cut short …
Arrived on time into KL from Siem Reap and collected our bags then passed through customs. Walked out to the bus stop to catch the bus around to the KLIA main terminal to then catch the KLIA Ekspres to KL Sentral station.
We waited about 20 minutes or more for the bus to arrive, it advertised that it was free but actually cost RM2.50 each …
Malaysia was very humid, I spent most of my time by the pool sipping cocktails and in the spa of the Hilton, which is where we stayed.
As it was for my boyfriend, Peter's work trips, he was in meetings and conferences all day, Although got a little bored as I didn't venture away from the hotel much (except to shop) I did enjoy having some relaxing 'Erina' time.

We stayed 5 nights at the Hilton KL Sentral in March 2005 and to say it was a wonderful experience is a bit of an understatement. The hotel is new, and modern but not overly minimalist. It stands on its own little enclave shared with the Le Meridien Hotel and is 10 minutes from the city and has easy access to downtown. Opposite the hotel there is the clean and new, KL Sentral, which is the train station that provides quick and easy access to the airport on the KLIA Express Train taking 28 minutes and costing 35 MYR, the Putra LRT (light rail) to downtown and the monorail also to downtown. The fares averaged RM 1-2. Cheap taxis door to door are readily available costing RM 8 -16 depending upon where you are heading. We had no problems with any taxi driver not using their meter. However, we did use only the yellow taxis and found them to be spotlessly clean and with pleasant and helpful drivers.
Fancy modern hotel, best shower and comfy bed, excellent experience to stay. I was impressed with the TV screen under the makeup mirror!
But location is better to stay in golden tri-angle area. The housekeeping was a bit slack for 5 star hotels.
Hilton has raised the game with this excellent contemporary hotel in KL. This is a great fusion of a large business orientated hotel with resort standard leisure facilities and cutting edge styling. I loved the rooms which are spacious, cleverly designed and a bold, refreshing change from the standard comfortable-but-boring interior design and furnishings you expect in a large chain hotel. No detail's too small. The Plasma TV and the 2nd TV in the bathroom are just the beginning of the great design features you'll find.
If you were to put a team of hotel staff and regulars together for a few days, and give them carte blanche to brainstorm any creative ideas for a cool new city-centre hotel, you might just come up with the new KL Hilton. As a cynical, jaded hotel guest, I was blown away by this place. It manages to mix a resort-style ambience with absolute professionalism.
Simply the best
I'm impressed the moment i stepped into the lobby ! Whoever built this hotel must had have put a lot of thought into opening up spaces in creating a soothing, modern, and pleasant place to stay. The rooms were equipped with everything one ever needs staying away from home - from a piece of aromatheraphy soap to an instant camera. The 42" in room plasma tv is another feature one can't afford not to mention ! One will definately be spoiled for choice when it comes to dining in KL Hilton, i simply lost count on the number of F & B outlets found in this hotel. Adjacent to the hotel is the sentral station - where one can find rail connections to just about anywhere in KL. This hotel will top my list whenever i need to go down to KL.
We stayed here in December 2004. The hotel is only 2 months old. VERY impressive lobby and the room is VERY high tech with 42 " plasma screen TV. The view is awesome.
The breakfast was outstanding.
By far, the best hilton I've stayed at and I've stayed at Hiltons worldwide.
More thought on follow through!
I was not disappointed with the prompt and efficient manner my requests were responded to, as expected of any hotel that class. But what tells one apart from another is the follow through, an area perhaps the Hilton Kuala Lumpur needs to give more thought. Lunch and dinner were promptly served in the comfort of my room but it took them longer than expected to come collect the cart and clear the room. Furthermore, I had to wash up the coffee percolator after the previous guest. All in all, I take comfort in the fact that it's a newly launched hotel!
Loved this hotel!
Best Hilton I've ever stayed in. Brand new with every service imaginable. These are very modern, funky. luxurious rooms. Spend the extra money and get the Executive Level, we never left the hotel for food or drinks, and the quality is incredible. The incredible pool is heaven in a busy busy city. Great workout facilities and good spa. Very busy hotel, was completely sold out when we were there. Walk across the street to get to Sentral Station and 28 minute train ride to airport. Don't even think about staying elsewhere!
We got to book the hotel just a few days after the opening days. The hotel decor is excellent ! Cool view of KL . The food is good although I must say they need to train the foreign workers to provide high quality service associated with reputable hotel such as Hilton. Apart from the door bell that is not functioning, we are impress with the hotel new concept & design !!
