Situated in the perfect central location, close to both the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre and the Petronas Towers, de King KLCC offers modern accommodation and decent value for money.
The rooms have that clean and efficient look typical of contemporary business hotels. They feature lovely wood flooring and all the amenities you’ll need for a great business or leisure stay, including lifesaving air conditioning and flat screen TV’s. Many rooms also sport amazing views across the city skyline.
Reception staff are on duty around the clock and can assist with tours, transfers and of course local advice and recommendations.
Rokko Japanese Grill is the in-house restaurant. It is open all day and serves everything from Tepanyaki to Sushi and Sashimi.
The Petronas Towers, with its observation deck, is just 600 yards from de King KLCC, while the KL Convention Centre is a 15-minute walk away. KL Sentral Station is approximately three miles to the south.
It seems that both business and leisure guests were very happy with the location of the hotel. Leisure travellers mentioned that the Petronas Towers were very close by, so they didn't have to travel far to get a bird's eye view of the city. Business travellers mentioned that the convention centre was fairly nearby, as were offices and other commercial sites.
Some rooms with great views
Those guests' allocated rooms higher up in the building were clearly the happiest of all. They mentioned that there were some great views of the skyline to be had, with some even being able to look out onto the Petronas Towers.
Decent value for money
The overwhelming majority of guests were very happy with the value for money they received at the hotel, saying that the room rates were very low for a hotel so close to the business district of the city.
Some issues with breakfast
There seemed to be quite a few issues with the breakfast, with guests reporting that they found it poor value. It was also mentioned that the menu really doesn't change from day to day, so those staying for a while would get bored with the food very quickly.
Problems with daily cleaning
A worrying number of guests reported that housekeeping sometimes forgot to clean their room on a particular day. It wasn't that they had a”Do Not Disturb” sign up, but rather that they simply would fail to clean it on some days.
Décor a little dark
A number of guests did not really care much for the colour scheme chosen by the designers, especially for the public areas of the hotel. They felt that it was a bit dark, and so created a gloomy atmosphere.
