Royal Club Room Le’ Meridien @ Kuala Lumpur

Although my last stay here at Le’ Meridien ain’t that pleasant, and I had preferred it as the 3rd out of the 3 Starwood Brand Hotel in Kuala Lumur last time, I decided to stay here again.

The reason is simple. Since I am here for my friend wedding again, and since I have the Buy 1 night Free 1 night voucher here which is only valid for the Royal Club room, I decided to stay here since I am only staying here for 2 nights this time.

And now, this is a great room. Space wise, it ain’t much different from their normal room, just slightly bigger.

However, it does provide bigger LCD TV, and also a BOSE ipod dock. Besides, the Royal Club Room also provide free Broadband internet, which is good.

Aeroline @ Penang > Kuala Lumpur

As lazy as I can be, I really hate driving, especially long journey driving. However, public transport from my hometown to Kuala Lumpur is really limited. Let’s see what choices do I have ya…..

1) Air Asia – Around RM100++ per person, the most expansive way to travel. However, it not entirely that fast too from Penang to KL. Considering I need to arrive at Penang airport 1 hour earlier, then wait for the luggage at LCCT, hire a cab or take their bus to KL sentral, which will take another 1 hour again. So in total, it will takes around 3 hours and 30 minutes to reach Kuala Lumpur from Penang.

2) KTM – RM42++ per person, considered as 1 of the safest way to travel. However, it took the longest time to reach, and is actually the worst possible way to travel in terms of comfort. The train depart at around 8.00PM from Sungai Petani, reaching KL Sentral at 5am++ in the morning. Not only it took 9 hours ++ to reach (due to loads and loads of stops), the ride is bumpy too. Besides, no hotel will let me check in so early without any extra charge anyway.

3) Express Bus – RM30++ per person, considered by me as 1 of the most dangerous way to travel. The journey took around 5 hours for day time, but I try to avoid them as much as possible especially I had sat a few badly maintain express bus, and I had also saw many crazy bus drivers on the road.

4) Aeroline – Well, it’s also a bus, a double decker one, just that it’s a premium one. It cost RM60 per peson. I had a pleasant journey with Aeroline before from KL to Penang. Their bus is much better maintain than others, and I find that their bus is much more stable than others.

5) Drive down – Possible the best way to travel. It cost around RM120 for 1 way though (Petrol + Tol). Time is flexible and I will have my own transport at my destination.

After considering all my options, I chose Aeroline this time. Instead of boarding at bus stations, their departure hub is at Queensbay Mall, Penang.

A small waiting room before your departure. Too bad, I don’t know is it because they are trying to save some electricity bill, or their air-conditioner is broken. Oh, tea and coffee are FOC too.
