Kualalumpur Malaysia Intercontinental Hotel
For a total of two nights I booked an entrance room - one or two levels in the InterContinental Kuala Lumpur for only RM 1,100. I didn't want to board a seven-hour flight to the Middle East, so I signed up for two nights, took the IHG Accelerate Challenge, and began scouting the region for the best hotels and restaurants in the city, as well as the best prices.
I asked for a flat white to accompany my high tea and was disappointed I thought more of it. I landed on one of the high benches, as most of my tables were occupied, and stared at the rice leftovers left on the banana leaf floor, wondering if I should scrape the bottom of this tray.
The menu at Serena Brasserie was not extensive, but there was a good selection of dishes, including chicken, pork, beef, lamb, chicken and pork ribs. The rest of the items were incredibly delicious food, which made me feel like I could get this incredibly delicious food anywhere.
All in all, I was looking forward to an evening at Serena Brasserie that I never could refresh myself from. Designed on a budget in the 1980s, the hotel offers a great atmosphere, great food and service, as well as fantastic views of Kuala Lumpur.
The staff were friendly and incredibly polite and attentive, but when it came to the placement of food and drinks, I could tell they needed a lot more training. The presentation of food and drink was quite awkward, and given the volume of guests, trays were often emptied quickly and the coffee I requested was brimming with cups, which also meant that the waitress staff struggled not to spill anything before bringing it to me. They were slow to fill up the food, the staff were friendly, but when they came to serve me food or drink, it was easy to see that they needed a much more advanced level of training than I had expected.
The decor was also a little strange, with ugly chairs matching and lots of mismatched, ugly furniture in the dining room and living area.
The InterContinental Kuala Lumpur is located in the heart of the city, just a few blocks from KL International Airport. Level 26 is beautifully designed, like the Club Intercontinental Singapore, but with a much more modern and contemporary feel.
The heart of the lounge is a full marble countertop, serving food and drinks throughout the day. In addition to the meeting and conference rooms, the hotel has only two other rooms, one for business meetings and one for private events. There is an on-site spa, but apart from the treatments, it does not act like a relaxation facility, such as a hot tub or sauna.
The food is essentially French, which is great, but the quality is pretty dismal, and the first night we were there, the food was essentially French. We had a few portions in the evening, along with a canape for dessert, but since there were no staff to make the roti and canai, they were cooked on the stove top.
If you are staying alone, you can pay RM 230 for an upgrade to a Club InterContinental room. The property also offers an e-upgrade option, where you can choose to receive certain paid upgrades confirmed at check-in. In addition to paying upgrade options, the hotel offers a range of other benefits such as free Wi-Fi, free parking and free food and drinks.
Forget Club InterContinental guests, the hotel also offers free Wi-Fi, free parking and free food and drinks in all of its hotels.
The quality of food in the lounge and breakfast restaurant has increased several steps to attract people who want to spend time in the hotel. Similar to the InterContinental Singapore, it also offers a three-tier afternoon tea set, which includes a variety of teas, coffees, teas and coffees, as well as a selection of drinks. If you feel a little uncomfortable but not quite like a wolverine, you can select your items and choose from the menu. You can argue that you shouldn't spend your time in a hotel in KL But if you have a ticket to the Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur, if it works and you want to be, then it becomes difficult - and it becomes difficult to compete with any other object in this city. The gourmet city has its share of gourmets, and so I can remember the roti - in - one - cup - made of - hot - water - with - coconut - milk - and - lemon - juice - on - the - side - for - breakfast - only menu.
The hotel is easily accessible by the KL Sentral light rail and the journey from the airport to the hotel by public transport is relatively inconvenient - free of charge. Kuala Lumpur is not a city with a great cityscape, but the view is definitely not worth the price.
