I think Le Meridien is the second best hotel in KK, after Shangri La, but it is centrally located and a great deal if you are an SPG (Starwood Perferred Guest) and using points. That said, it's still a good deal for travelers who want a nice place to stay in the heart of KK. The hotel has one pool...

Reviewed 22 July 2013

This is not a good hotel if you actually plan to sleep: the plumbing is faulty, so when someone else takes a shower it sounds like a steam train in your bathroom (2am) and the doors are quite heavy, so when you let them go, they really slam shut (2.30 to 3.30 am). Finally, the windows are not noise insulating...

Luxury in the midst of a vibrant location indeed. When we were not in our plush room, basking in the view of the harbour and islands, we would be having fun exploring the lively markets with countless stalls opposite the hotel. Initially we booked a city view room, but decided to pay an extra RM170.00 for two persons per night...

Hello Seetochuepeng, Thank you so much, I am delighted you decided to take advantage of the offer to stay again, though you are right, KK is very busy at the moment and we don't have many rooms available. Please keep an eye out though for promotions after the busy holiday period in August. I am so pleased that you enjoyed...

I was expecting the 'Le Meridien' standard just like how Le Meridien KL has. Unfortunately there are some minus point I have to highlight during our short stay 3D2N here in LMKK. 1.

Dear DoryShariff, I am sorry that we were not able to deliver up to the expectations set by the Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur Hotel.

The location is excellent. Only a 10 minute ride from the airport by taxi and is near to the docks (again 5 - 10 minutes by taxi) so you can catch a boat to the surrounding islands which are gorgeous easily. It also has an amazing food market right on its door step which comes to life at night. You...

The pluses are a great location and fantastic views from the club lounge. The downsides are that the food throughout the hotel never rose above the merely 'acceptable' range. Our suite was large and would have been lovely when it was fresh and new, but today it is tired. Our bed was short-sheeted a couple of times. I'm not sure...
