Monday 3 FebruaryWe arrive back in KL at 3.30am. We both managed to get some sleep as the seats are wide and comfy. There are only 3 seats across rather than the standard 4 in the UK.
Col checks out a couple of hotels but they are full so we use the internet in a local hostel and book 2 nights in the Radius international hotel. We then have a …
The final countdown :(. We got up mega early to make the most of it. We had to head straight to the Petronas Twin Towers in order to secure a ticket as they are limited every day and booked to go up as the sun goes down! Afterwards we navigated the LRT to the central train station to get to the Batu Caves. 272 very steep steps up into the cliffs …
We decided to have a sort out day today. We weren't sure how much we'd ache in the morning so didn't make any major plans. We eventually woke up at 11:30am after the long day and late night yesterday. My hips had pretty much seized up which wasn't good!
Our first action was to decide on dinner and head out to Mercato to pick up lunch a...

Located at the heart of Bukit Bintang, surrounded by establishments
This review is the subjective opinion of a TravelPod member and not of TravelPod.com.
The first time I reached Malaysia, our bus took us to this hotel which we already booked from Indonesia. Around Bukit Bintang street. Much fun around the hotel. Clean enough.

Historical Traveler Reviews Radius International Hotel Kuala Lumpur
The Radius is a grubby hotel
The Radius is a grubby hotel with poor cleanliness and hygene standards and an unhelpful reception.
Our room had a great view but had cockroaches and a bath waste which leaked over the floor. A member of staff breaking up ice in the dismal "deli" was seen to drop a lump on the floor and then feed it through the ice crusher for using in drinks. Another member of kitchen staff took a handfull (bare handed) of sausages out of the breakfast buffet. Reception took 20 minutes to change a travellers cheque after refusing to change another cheque which had a tiny piece missing from the corner. We were glad to leave.
The Rooms Arn't That Bad
When we got to the hotel,me and my family of six, were all amazed when we saw the hotel's lobby. Everything was so clean. The staff there are very friendly and show you nothing but respect. The kids were never short of stuff to do. The 2 pool tables came in very handy. I too found that the walls were paper thin in the rooms but that was the only fault I could find with our room. The hotel does have a pool but it is a lot smaller than what it looks like on their website.The food and drink at the bar was a bit pricey.The breakfast was fine,apart from the fruit salad. There was a rumour circling around the hotel about it being off and sure enough every family member who ate it felt ill for the rest of the day. Overall my stay at the Radius was a mostly pleasent one and I would happpily go back.
Does the Job.
Well, why do you go on a Holiday? To sit in a Hotel Room?
The place has helpful staff, comfortable enough beds, showers that work (though could be warmer), a nice buffet breakfast, and isn't too far from the shopping malls. It's clean, and has a swimming pool to wash the sweat off after a hard days shopping.
But yes, the rooms are simple and can do with some maintenance. You can hear what the kids next door are watching on TV.
But... they are CHEAP and clean and practical and convenient. They are a place to drop your stuff and fall asleep.
Radius International, KL
Great location, walking distance to shopping & eating places.
Booked a premier room but was not given all the benefits. Website said a fruit platter everyday, but reception said only on the 1st day. Was quite mean about a child having a snack at the Premier's Lounge. Girl at desk said that it was limited to 2 adults and any additional person would cost $18.00 Considering it was just juice and a snack, it was quite mean and damaging to its reputation. How much can 2-3 pieces of small snacks and a glass of juice cost? Recommend you eat outside the hotel. Food was very cheap and great to try local foods instead of burger and fries.
Staff at front desk was not very friendly. Could not seem to cope with crowds. Security guards and other staff were really nice and said hello each time you walked by.
Hotel with great location
I like the location of the hotel best - it is very central to the shopping centres, the trains and plenty of international food restaurants and hawker stalls, all within walking distance.
Breakfast was a spread, if you stay for less than three days, more than that you could get sick of the same thing, the cafe is cramp and the tables and chairs need replacing coz some of the legs are not very stable.
The room is quite clean but the shower needs attention, in the mornings the water is very slow. The TV doesn't have a remote control or its missing.
I agree that the walls are paper thin, some neighbours can be very noisy either in the middle of the night or very early in the mornings.
Another up is the front people who are very, very attentive and helpful.
The hotel is in the midst of renovation, it would be great if the rooms have wireless internet but definitely will go back again!
What else do I expect from a 3star hotel?
What else do I expect from a 3star hotel? It has superb locations- convenient to elsewhere, high-rise with good views and importantly good 'value for money'.
We've requested for connecting and twin-tower view but rooms are fully booked. Eventually, we had cozy corner premier rooms on the top 18th floor facing city views and was well-maintained with basic amenities (I believed we was upgraded despite having paid for deluxe rooms). Dissappointingly however, it was true the walls was paper thin. We do heard unpleasant noise from our nearby-next-door neighbours.
The hotel policy of allowing early check-in after 7am at no extra charge (subject to room availability) was good for those arriving early and got no where else to go.
The space for the Kopitiam cafe was a bit cramp. It's quite small for such a huge hotel occupancy. We had to line up and wait for our tables. However, the buffet spread for breakfast was above average, generous and having good choices of selection.
Last but not least, thumbs up to their concierge. They are helpful and informative.
Great Staff, Nice pool, great area, rooms average
I've stayed at this same Hotel for the last 5 years (previously called The Park Inn). The rooms are average, the staff are friendly and helpful and the guys on the door are fantastic. The area outside the hotel is great as there is the locals food court on one side and to the left is all small resturants (german, french, italian etc etc). It is only 2 minutes walk from the main shopping area (Lot10, Sungei Wang Plaza etc). Breakfast is great. The guys at the front will do anything or get anything you want or if they can't they will know someone who can. The hotel is currently undergoing renovations, but not once were we disturbed or put out. In all our holiday was great (even with 5 adults and 3 children) and anybody who wants a good midranged priced accomodation, this is one to look at.
Paper thin walls
The room was very shabby. The walls are paper thin and we had the pleasure of exceptionally loud neighbours who went to bed late on one side and got up at the crack of dawn on the other. Breakfast was below average although the staff were courteous. Would not return to this hotel.
Room for improvement
The best thing about this hotel is the lobby. The worst thing, unfortunately, are the rooms. Let's start with the lobby: glamerous, well-kept, welcoming doormen, and a double escalator to push you up the one floor to the reception desk. The room includes a free breakfast in the restaurant, which I found to be quite good, especially the omlette bar. The coffee is, well, instant. The wait staff very coureous.
The rooms are another story. I concur with another review on this site regarding a glut of baby cockroaches. The carpet was stained in many places, and the walls desperately needed painting. Several fixtures in the room were in disrepair, and the towels reminded me of my high school locker room towels: scracthy, and someone had written the initials of the hotel on them in magic marker. It's too bad that such a great building seems to be lacking in the basic maintenance that good make this a great hotel.
