Level 33 Royal Club Lounge @ Le’ Meridien Kuala Lumpur

As per my previous post, hotel guest staying in the Royal Club Room in Le’ Meridien Kuala Lumpur will have exclusive access to their Royal Club Lounge at level 33.

The lounge is nicely design with floor to ceiling glass window offering some great view of Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.

Royal Club Room guest can enjoy this lounge whole day, either having some small chat here while enjoying the view, or using the free wireless broadband, or even use the 2 iMacs here. Besides, you can also enjoy free flow of coffee and tea, bottled mineral water, soft drinks and bottled fruit juice too.

Hors d’oeuvre, or better known as appetizers or starters are served daily from 6.00Pm to 8.00Pm too. I personally feel that starting at 6.00PM is a bit too late for me as I usually have my dinner quite early. Starting at 5.00PM or 5.30PM will be much better, but that’s for me.

Food choices are limited with some salads, fruits and some fusion dishes.

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.

Favola @ Le’ Meridien Kuala Lumpur

Favola is an Italian restaurant located at level 8 (just by the pool), Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur. The ambiance here is great, spacious seating pair with some really comfortable chair and light music, making it a romantic place to dine in.

Before I am here, I had heard that both Prime and Favola served amazing complimentary bread, and yes, it’s true! The bread here is just AMAZING! I don’t really know the names of the dip bar the olive oil with balsamic vinegar. But it’s just just just great!

I and LY almost finish up all the bread before we force ourself to stop, just so that our stomach won’t be full even before our apetizer is served!  10.0/10

Le’ Meridien @ Kuala Lumpur

It’s my friend’s wedding, hence here am I again at Kuala Lumpur, my lovely town, besides the jam.

This time, again using my vouchers, my choice of stay is Le’ Meridien Kuala Lumpur. It’s located at KL sentral, and used to be 1 of the best place to stay in Kuala Lumpur since it’s the hub of public transport, and amazing view around the metropolis. In such a short distance, you can get access to LRT and KTM which brings you to most part of Kuala Lumpur. By walking a little bit more, you can get access to Monorail which brings you to the centre of Kuala Lumpur including the golden triangle.

HOWEVER, due to the ABSOLUTELY STUPID USELESS town planning, they decided to build a HUGE STUPID CIMB building right in the middle of KL sentral and the monorail station.

Now, because of this STUPID building being built, it easily triples the walking distance from the hotel to the Monorail station, which mean now it cost more (either time or money if you decide to take a cab instead) to reach shopping heaven Bukit Bintang! Besides, it totally block the perfect view from the hotel rooms!

You build a transportation hub and now you destroy it????? How can you be so STUPID?!

End of rant……

Checking in is fast, although the air conditioner at the lobby seems faulty at that point as I actually sweat a bit when I was there. And unlike at Sheraton Imperial, the parking only cost RM5 per day with unlimited entries and exits.

The room is smaller than expected, and on a serious note, seriously (again) do you think this is a 5 star hotel if I din’t told you?

Oh ya, my room face directly to that STUPID building, luckily I couldn’t hear a damned sound from the construction of it.

The bed is just okay, but I am missing my heavenly bed already…….

Prime @ Le’ Meridien Kuala Lumpur

Okay, I am actually very reluctant to post this, especially after the sorta good service from Prime, making me really wanted to give them a 2nd chance before I post this, but seeing that it seems there are more and more negative review I read (from Lowyat forum and here and even 1 of the commentors from kampungboycitygal’s blog regarding his friend), well…..

I know I might get a lot of hatred mail or even shrugs or disbelieve, well….

Okay, to start it off, it’s LY birthday, I decided to bring her to Prime, the highly sung best place to have steak in Malaysia. I am especially excited when I saw that their Blackmore Wagyu promotion is back, hence I can finally taste the melt in mouth kind of steak for the first time!

Red meat must go with red wine, and since I am not a Wine expert at all, I asked the waiter to recommend me a wine which is not dry and sweet, hence I was recommended the Terrazas Mabec @ RM190, which is exactly what I want. Kudos to them!

After we made our order, the bread is here. Yes, it’s definitely the best ever bread I had tasted in restaurant. I especially love the Emmental Cheese & Black Pepper Bread which is just amazing to go on with the 3 types of butter which is 1 infused with spinach,  1 is salted and the other is with poppyseed (from left to right). The bread itself is already amazing and great on it’s own, and with the super creamy and soft and generous butter, it’s just AMAZING! Seriously a perfect score for a bread! 10.0/10
