When we went to KL for the first time TD (The Diplomat) booked us in Hotel Nikko KL. There were many other recommendations, mostly boutique hotels that probably had better food and more value for the same money, however TD chose Nikko because of the location – walking distance to Suria KLCC Mall and right beside a train station which was important because our main mission for this weekend trip was IKEA.
We got a deluxe room but were upgraded because the hotel was full. Yay! I wonder what the deluxe room would have looked like?
View from our window. We noticed a lot of buildings going up in KL.
There was a nice desk, which was great as a dresser. =P
I liked the media wall which drawers for storage and lotsa surface area for all my stuff – I obviously do not travel light.
Big bathroom with both a shower and a bathtub. Too bad we didn’t have time to luxuriate in the tub. We had a packed weekend planned. They provided good quality toiletries and it was a bonus that they had a weighing scale in the bathroom. It helps me not overeat while I’m on vacay! =P
The mini bar
One thing that TD and I noticed was that the room seemed to have “modern” trappings (below) but the look was not as our current technology. Check out the panel on the bedside table that controlled everything from the lights, dimmers, AC and alarm clock! Neat right? Instead of the sign to hang on the door when you don’t want to be disturbed or you need your room made up, there was a switch by the door. Just press it and presto!
We figure these were done a while back but since the Japanese are very advanced when it comes to technology, these were very hi-tech for that time and just haven’t needed to be updated yet. Just our theory. What do you think?
I really liked the room we had – clean lines and a modern look with asian elements. The beddings were lovely (nice and fluffy) and everything was spotless and clean. To me that’s the most important part. Best part was the convenience of walking to the mall (no need to haggle with cabs which we were warned about) and taking the train to the area of IKEA.
