beautiful hotel, purple paint, nice lobby. quirky layout, bit of a rabbit warren. room was very cramped, but nicely furnished. basically like living in a closet. but the bathroom was strangely spacious. easy to walk from there to everything in central KL.

I woke up a little late the next day and headed first to the post office to send home a parcel of Bangkok shopping (there had been yet another public holiday in Thailand on the day I left meaning I couldn't use the post and had to cart it all to Malaysia with me and pay more for it!) and then to the Petronas Twin Towers which looked just as spectacular in real life as they do in the photos...BUT you need to ...
I feel like the best way to get to know a city is to look up the big famous buildings and walk to them seeing what you come across on the way. This is how we got a feel for KL. First we walked to the Petronis Towers, the tallest twin towers in the world. It was about a fifteen minute walk in which we made two conclusions about KL. One it is so fast food orientated and two it has the worse road rules. Mopeds just drive in the middle of ...
