As yesterday afternoon was rained off we had a lot to do today and so had good intentions to get up at 7am for an early start...but Dans phone battery died in the night so it was 8.30 when we woke up a little bit confused about how we had managed to sleep so late! We were up and dressed quickly and off to the monorail station to go to KL Sentral. …

Amazing Kuala Lumpur!

We were up early again for our flight to Kuala Lumpur, referred to as KL (much easier to type too!). We had a quick breakfast at the Cafe Cinno at the Hilton which consisted of random but tasty item which was a cross between brioche and a croissant but with bits of hot dog style sausage inside it (most likely chicken too as pork doesn't really …

Kicking it in KL!

... from Kuala Lumpur. He is very personable and takes responsibility for our safety, (which is nice to know). There are two of us working at Murphy Oil, myself and Geoff (a Belgium exchange student). We are making a business development plan for the potential of the Oil & Gas industry in Burma. Anyone know where Burma is? (without looking it up!)

Anyways that’s all for now, hope everyone is doing great!

... cabin!

Okay we were waiting at lounge maybe about 30 minutes, we looked around the Duty Free Shop, but not interested to shop, because yeah The DFS were not interesting. And at 03.10pm suddenly there was an announcement sounded, ”To all passengers Air Asia QZ7594 heading to Bandung, please boarding.” From T9 Gate to the location where the aircraft parked, was not too far. In the middle towards our plane parking location, ...

    Right in the midst of the city ... a perfect location for travelling around on foot.

    Stone throw away from the local MRT station.

    Neat and clean rooms with a great spread of breakfast to provide the necessary energy to cope with tropical climate of Malaysia.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur

    See the Ferraris and Maseratis parked outside!


    I am almost certainly in the minority but I just am not keen on Shangri-La Hotels. I find them brash, blousy and generally tasteless. And our room at the KL Shangri-La was pretty awful, small, very tired decoratively and with a poor limited view of the city. The bathroom was dreadful with a tiny shower and bath. This was called an Executive Triple Room! The Reception indicated it wasone of the better bigger versions. 17th Floor.

    Not your average tourist hotel


    I was really impressed with this hotel. This is the second time i have stayed in Kuala Lumpur-the first time i stayed at another hotel. This hotel has a very modern style-its interior and accessories were designed by Philip Stark. You will see a lot of modern glass accents throughout.



    My Hubby and I felt like celebrities when we arrived here! We only stayed for one night unfortunately, as we were en route to Borneo, but had the most wonderful stay here.



    I stayed here several months ago and I loved it.

    I would not hesitate to go back here, it's beautifully laid out, the rooms are generous and so comfortable.

    The view from my room on the 19th floor of the petronas towers was spectacular..

    So close to nearest train and the shopping centre (pure heaven for those with cash to spare).

    The food was wonderful, room service breakfast everyday was delightful, so delicately presented.

    Staff were helpful and so friendly.

    Would highly recomend it. I'll be back for sure.

    Good base to explore KL


    Stayed here in February for a four days, during the Chinese New Year celebrations which meant the Hotel was packed, and had a party atmosphere.

    A First Class Hotel


    We stayed here for a second time in January 2005 and enjoyed it even more than the first time. We upgraded to the executive floor (28th) for a very reasonable price and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - much plusher and larger room with a fabulous view of the Petronas Towers (fab at night). Breakfast was included in the exec breakfast room plus early evening apperatifs with lots of choice of drinks and nibbles. The service is very professional and the rooms immaculate. The location of the hotel is good - easy walking distance to a very good shopping mall adjoining the Petronas Towers. The Hard Rock cafe is just opposite along with a choice of other restaurants.

    We will certainly be going back next January.

    What a fab place to stay!


    We have stayed at the Shangri-La KL on four separate occasions and are due to stay again in May. What a fantastic city centre hotel. Friendly professional staff, efficient check-in/out and large comfortable rooms. We joined the Golden Circle Club which gives you good benefits such as half price breakfasts, preferencial room upgrade rates etc.

    Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Not quite "Shangri-La" - but close


    I admit I booked into this top end hotel on the recommendation of the Lonely Planet's Malaysia guide, and while it wasn't the idyllic paradise I expected, it was close enough to keep me satisfied, but not enough to lure me back. Places like the Shangri-La Hotel are more like Disneyland than hotels. Everything you could want is somewhere on premise, including all variety of food and beverage establishment. The opulence is a bit over the top to the point that it's almost campy. The rooms are plush and more than adequate, but the view I had was nothing to write home about. And while the price (about US100-120/single room) is pretty competative by 4/5-star standards, don't forget to factor in the tax and service fees, and don't overlook that if you do drink from the minibar or patronize the onsite facilities, you're bill will rise higher than the nearby twin towers. Negatives: no bellman offered to help carry my luggage to my room, which is unlike a place like the Shangri-La. Also, while I was there, I had armed military personnel camped out on my floor, and when I asked why, I never got a clear answer. I don't know about you, but being greeted by stone-faced, machine-gun-weilding arm people on floor 22 of the Shangri-La sort of spoils the mood of supposedly being in a luxury retreat. But otherwise, not bad.

    Culture shock


    Having used Shangri-La hotels in China and Thailand, which were fabulous in every way, the KL offer was a serious disappointment. Its brash, noisy and limiting. Eating breakfast with a couple of hundred other people holds no appeal for me. After six days I felt I had been on a hotel management seminar. Every meal event was followed by a quality questionnaire which got very labourious.

    Woderful experience


    What a wonderful experience. If you want great rooms, wonderful service, opulent surroundings look no further. This hotel has it all. We were on the 22nd floor and had great views they think of everything even provide you with a toothbrush!

    We had breakfast included and it is one of the best choices I have ever come across. Our 11 year old loved the chocolate fountain but we couldnt quite face it for breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to stay whilst in KL. As soon as you walk inside from the heat its cool exterior works its magic. Its only a short taxi ride away from all the major sites and just over the road from the Hard Rock Cafe. A winner all round, we will be back
