Historical Traveller Reviews of Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur Hotel
The location of the hotel is for easy access into KL monorails and mass transport system as well as getting into the airport. As our next morning flight back to London was scheduled at 0900, staying at this hotel enable us to leave at a reasonable time as well as checking our luggage in at Sentral Station which is located underneath the hotel. There are also great bargain for shoppers at Sentral Station. We also ate at the pools side in the hotel and the food is fantastic. The pool is large and beautiful with great tropical plants in it. We also strolled next door to the Hilton afterward to explore the SPA and it looks fantastic and the treatment are very well price.
For entertainment afterwards we went back to Hilton to listern to live music and mingled with the trendy crowd in the coffee/patisserie bar. Both the service and ambiance were fantastic at the Hilton. Unfortunately we did not have time to spend at the Le Meridien Bar.
superb hotel and stafffrom A TripAdvisor Member
Good location, most staff friendly...from trailblazer_uk2000
Great find and so convenientfrom queen_mary
The hotel was fantastic. Lots of facilities are shared with the Hilton and you are able to cross-sign at their restaurants etc. The swimming pool they share is very impressive with great landscaping including waterfalls - it's hard to believe you're in a city hotel.
We ate at the Lebanese restaurant one night and were seated in a luxurious round enclosed booth which resembled an Arabian tent. I wish I'd had my camera with me as I can't do this justice in words. As you would expect the food here is more expensive than eating outside the hotel but it's worth it. The Japanese restaurant was also very good.
Public transport is cheap, reliable and fast so it's easy to get into KLCC (Petronas Towers)and also to the airport. The Malaysian Airlines check-in at KL Sentral is also very convenient.
On our last day we checked out of the hotel two and a quarter hours before our international flight was due to leave. The porter then took our cases over the road to KL Sentral, lifted them onto the luggage belt and then went to get our train tickets for us. We took the KLIA Express train luggage-free for 28 minutes then just had time for coffee at the airport before we boarded the plane. This was a big difference to the three hour wait at Heathrow on our journey out!
We will definitely stay at Le Meridien next time we visit KL.
Good value for moneyfrom fuzzyb
We arrived late at night and was upgraded to a better room since they didn't have any non smoking rooms like we requested when we booked. The rooms were nice and big with everything using little touch pad buttons instead of switches eveything was connected to a little monitor at you bedside so you could swith off all the lights and control you aircon from your bedside. Bathroom was really nice with big bath and huge windows overlooking the city
We received excellent service and a porter carried our bags down to the station when we left. The hotel is very conveniently situated aross the street from the central station where you can hop on a train to almost anywhere
Although we preffered the Hilton this hotel was lovely to stay and definitely very good value for money.

Mixed experiencefrom HBDutytravel
On arrival my Expedia reservation had not been received by the hotel and a very long and overcomplicated procedure was needed to get me a room (involving several calls to Expedia in Europe). The whole procedure took 70 minutes and while waiting and hoping to get a room I was not even offered a drink. Staff was ok but not too friendly nor too experienced to handle the situation. Disappointing when you arrive tired from travel.
They got me a room on the Executive floor (which I had booked anyway) and the room was nice. No wireless internet though, just ethernet cable connection. Breakfast starts at 6am which was too late for me due to an early morning flight (checkin for some airlines such as Malaysian and Cathay Pacific at the central station is a great and very convenient option).
Despite the negative experience upon checkin I enjoyed very much the health club, gym and spa - they are of very high standard. The gym is a real gym and part of a sports club chain present in several Asian cities. The outside pool is huge and very well kept. The spa (sauna and steam bath) were just great to forget all the hassle before.
The whole atmosphere of the hotel is not very personal - not that I expected or need that. The facilities, however, make up for that and the overall rates for staying in such a luxury environment are relativey low compared to rates elesewhere.
Top Local Tips for Kuala Lumpur
Taxi voucher KL Sentral If you are staying at Le Meredien or KL Hilton walk to KL Sentral and get a taxi voucher from the kiosk there (just inside the door). Tell them where you are going, they will give you a price and you get a voucher which you give to the driver. I can guarantee it will be cheaper than just getting a cab (where every fare appears to 20 ringgit!).
Taxis/Monorail Always insist the meter is used when engaging a taxi. They are very cheap but will often offer you a vastly inflated price when they hear at which hotel you are staying. Some may even offer you the services of prostitutes so beware. By contrast, the monorail is frequent, extremely cheap and will quite often get you downtown even quicker than a cab.
1 uthama shopping centre What a great shopping centre. 15 min from Sentral station and there a lovely restaurants too. I can't wait to go back there
