Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur
Travel Blogs from Kuala Lumpur
Even with warming weather in Italy, the combination of heat and humidity of SE Asia is quite a jolt to the body. Walking slowed to a very controlled stroll and public transport was utilised several times.
Three solid weeks of European coffee was no comparison to the Lebanese coffee we tried late one night. Without thinking we capped off …
This should probably be our last trip to KL. Need to explore lot of other countries. I have been here so many times. Know this place inside out. Yet there was always something new to discover everytime. My wife simply looooves shopping here.
This time I chose to stay at the Grand Millenium Hotel. My Review of the hotel;
Disliked - …
I can't believe we've hit our third country! It's gone surprisingly quick. I've got a huge backlog of days to update.. feeling pretty lazy atm. So briefly, here are some quick updates: - I'm going to Grand Prix!!! They maybe the cheapest tickets and uncovered - come rain or come shine eh - but sod that!! I'm going tmw (Sunday 19th)! - Living the …
... Annoying things - losing glasses, looking over 65 and not being able to add pics to this blog from my tablet (internet visit in order).
Highlights - Petronas Towers, food, climate and not having to go to work next week.
Funny thing - being stuck under a pavement cafe umbrella, drinking Coffee I hasten to add, in a tropical downpour for 2 hrs watching 4 inches of water rise around me.
Lesson Learnt - Slow ...
... for the boat to take us to Bali, but in usual SE Asian style, it was nearly an hour late arriving, took ages to load everyone on, stopped at every island and finally departs for Bali at around half 12!! We don't actually get to Kuta (where we are staying) till 4pm and with no lunch stops we are starving!! We find the cheapest hotel (which is over budget.. this is Bali) and i doubt it has been cleaned for years, the electricity didn't work and none of the hotel staff knew how ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur
When the hotel website said that they were located in the vicinity of 3000 shops, BOY, they were not kidding !!
Christmas specials were on everywhere and it was absolute shopping mayhem. I was on a short trip from singapore with my husband and child, and there was lots to do for everybody. We wanted to give the traditional singaporean christmas hoohah a miss and try out the KL flavor, it was a good decision.
Close by to the hotel is times square, they have a very large entertainment facility for kids, expansive and resonable too.
The hotel itself was very comfortable, the staff were quite friendly and inviting. Their room service kids menu was thankfully large.
All in all, a very good stay - kudos to the hotel, will definitely go back.
I've stayed at the Regent Hotel in KL about 8 times over the last 6 years and this last trip was probably my last stay. There was nothing terribly wrong with the hotel -- but nothing was extremely right either. I was never greeted by name, the toilet in my room did not flush properly, the remote bedside lighting panel controlled lights -- but not as designed (had to press the "desk light" button to command the night light and vice versa). I was so disappointed in my stay that I almost cancelled an adjoining stay at the Regent Singapore. I'm glad I didn't as the Regent Singapore had fantastic service (and is still managed by Four Seasons).
Should NOT be mistaken for a Four Seasons Hotel!
Car service excellent from the airport and for sightseeing around town, Driver very pleasant and knowledgeable.
Air conditioning did not work in the Junior Suite, Maintenance personnel came and said the filter was so dirty that no air could get through it. Removed filter and 3 hours later room was cool enough. Don't they have a regular maintenance program?
Left a wake up call for the next moring. No call was ever made, so woke up late and had to rush around. Breakfast in the Club Lounge is pretty pathetic. And laundry arrived late.
Front desk and management not helpful - just excuses.
All in all a pretty good 3 star hotel.
The Regent KL was the top hotel in KL in the 90s, but unfortunately it is abit outdated now. The architecture is unique and dramatic but it feels tired inside.
Best service and club level
They won a prize for best service and the best club level. They´ve earned it! It was the last hotel after 3 months of travelling non stop in Europe and Asia and it was fantastic! The room is spacious, with an amazing view of the Petronas, the bed is extremelly comfortable, the shower has the massage thing (and the water pressure is GREAT) and the club level is the way to go: AMAZING breakfast, snacks and full bar all day long!!!The club lounge has 3 floors, with offices to check email looking at the petronas. Their view is hard to beat! Same as the view from the bedroom. The staff is very friendly and eager to help. First class hotel.
Great business hotel in great location
The Regent has been my preferred KL hotel for more than 10 years. Great location on Bukit Bintang. Very near to shopping malls, eating places, nice restaurants. Staying on the club floor (fl 18 or 19) is recommeneded. You can enjoy breakfast buffet in the club. Free flow drinks; beers, soft-drinks, hard liquers, also available in the club. Free daily laundry up to 5 pieces also included. Room is nice and always makes me feel at home. This will continue to be my preferred hotel in KL!!
Very nice but not wonderful
stayed for 2 nights in march. had lovely time. the hotel staff is fantastic and service was unbeatable. the hotel itself is rather nice but do not really expect to stay at the Four Seasons - it is a level down. the brkf was good but nothing special. spa facilities are good but not the best. the rooms are nice but they do not have separate shower and bath tube - it is a bit dated, yet the bed is very comfortable. location is great. overall it is a nice hotel but no wows
This is a great hotel! It is well sited for shopping, eating and sight seeing. The staff are so helpful, polite and friendly that it was a nasty shock to come back home to England. We stayed on the club floor and the room was very large with a lovely marble bathroom. The bed was enormous and exceedingly comfortable and you got a personal butler (how could you ever live without one??!).
The club is an excellent idea, as you can get breakfast there, drinks and nibbles in the evening, plus they have a small library and internet facility.
Great For The New Year!!
I stayed her for new years eve last year and had a wonderful time. I had to stay on their Club floor , as all other rooms were full. Glad that happened!! Free bar on the top of the hotel was a great idea on new years eve!! Right in the middle of everything and the balcony was a great place to be when watching new year fireworks!!
Club floor was great and worth the extra money!!
