Our mate James Petty had to catch his flight back to OZ that evening, so we popped by the pool at KL Hilton, Le Meridien to have some drinks. Considering the hotel is just opposite KL Sentral. That is the central of KL to get the transportation to get anywhere around KL.
Today is our 5 year anniversary, and we celebrated in style arriving in KL on the first stop.
After checking in to the hotel, we had a drink in the bar and then relaxed by the pool, drank cocktails and had a lovely dinner at the upper-class steak restaurant within the Le Meridian Hotel called :Prime". Try the Truffle Ravioli, its to die …
From Singapore, we traveled via bus to Kuala Lumpur. These buses are the epitome of comfort - big loungers, only three across, tons of leg room, and on demand TV in the seats, all for ~$20 for the 5 hour trip. (Part of me wants to bring buses like this to the Toronto - Montreal route.)
The first thing we've noticed here in Malaysia is how …

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur
We stayed at the le meridien for 3 nights on a stop-over recently. The hotel is in a great central location. It was so easy to get to using the KLIA express and also on check out you can check in your luggage at the train station for your flight! Its so easy! On check in we were disappointed to discover that we were not in the lake gardens view room we had reserved. When we pointed this out the staff were very apologetic and not only moved us to a lake gardens view room but also upgraded us to an executive room! This room was fairly small for an exec room but it was clean and modern, the bathroom was a great size with the bath tub located next to the window with panoramic views of the city! We did not eat in the restaurant once! Because of the great location it is so cheap and easy to travel around KL and eat out. One day we were not ready to have our room cleaned at 10am so we asked the room boy to come back in an hour and our room was never cleaned. This was probably the only annoyance in our whole trip. On check out the porter was happy to carry all of our luggage to the station KLIA check in desk. Great city hotel!!
I really like this hotel. I thought I wrote a review before but don't see it here. I've stayed here about 30 days this year. I'll try to comment on a few things other than the decor and staff which I find just fine.
We stayed at this hotel in April for a couple of nights of our honeymoon. The hotel is very new and has a grand reception. The location is convenient if arriving from the airport as directly attached to the express rail station to/from the airport.
Excellent staff & service at Le Meridien
Stayed for 4 nights & couldn't fault staff or service. Found concierge staff extremely helpful with advice. Room splendid & had lovely view over gardens & lake, & pool excellent. Breakfast first class & other meals also. Will stay again especially as so handy for all 3 lines of train transport. All staff conversant in English.
Stayed at the Le Meridien for 2 nights as a stop over between Bali and the UK to get some city life after chill-out.
Ideal for longhaul stopovers
I arrived at Le Meridien after 6 days sailing, despertate for some home comforts before venturing further into Malaysia. Le Meridien was perfect and still only 4 months old, incredible value by UK standards. My room was superb, very comfortable, with stunning views of KL. Most of the staff were young and still finding their way around, but very friendly and helpful. I couldn't fault the place. Being next to the Central station and the Airport Express - but only a short taxi ride from the city centre - its ideal for longhaul stopovers. I wish I'd had more time to check out the rest of the facilities, particularly the pool shared with the Hilton next door. Excellent.
Spent three nights here at the start of March and was pleasantly suprised. Great Location next to KL Sentral station with easy access to transportation on the KL Espress to the Airport, the Putra Metro line and the KL Monorail. You can reach most parts of KL in a short period of time.
Brand new and only open 3 months - the hotel is located next door to the identical Hilton by the terminus of the KLIA shuttle train from the airport but a stroll from Central Market etc. The facilities are superb (pool etc shared with the Hilton) and the staff are wonderful. We stayed on one of the business floors (about UK pounds 75 a night for two including breakfast, laundry and cocktails) and were the only people there - rather like having your own butler service. Everyone seemed to know our names and it was a splendid experience. Food was great although we walked the 50 metres to eat in the Hilton next door a couple of times to people watch.
