Doubletree by Hilton, KL

I attended a seminar held in Doubletree by Hilton in Kuala Lumpur (located 2 mins walk from Ampang Park LRT station) and decided to stay a night there.

Let’s take a look at the room.

Open concept bathroom.

Apart from the typical offers, something that tickles my interest is a “pillow menu” that comes with recommendation for specific conditions. Too bad I didn’t take a photo of that menu. The bed and pillows were comfy enough for me though, I woke up feeling  refreshed the next day.

There’s a vast selection of breakfast options at Makan Kitchen. Several cooking stations feature iconic specialties for you to experience the flavour of Malaysian cuisine.

One of Malaysia’s popular breakfast option is the “Nasi Lemak”, aka coconut milk rice, served with egg, cucumbers, fried anchovies and nuts, and sambal.

There’s cereals and pastries too.

Clockwise from top: fruit salad, pancake with berries, omelette, black coffee and pastries.

Food is served from 6 am onward.

Doubletree by Hilton is located strategically within KL city, 2 mins walk from Ampang Park LRT station. The LRT is accessible to KLCC (5 mins) and KL Sentral (15 mins).

If you could spare some time to explore KL city, there’s a free shuttle bus that runs within the Central Business District (CBD) of KL. The nearest stop from Doubletree by Hilton is “Citibank”, just beside the Ampang Park LRT station.
