Business travel can be very hectic. You’re in town for business, and that’s your top priority. Taking in the sights is just a second thought — and this can be particularly hard when you’re in such a dynamic city as Kuala Lumpur.
But here’s a tip — make your Kuala Lumpur hotel booking in one of the following top hotels. All of these are equipped for your business needs, while also providing all the leisure amenities you need at the end of a hard work day.
- Sunway Putra Hotel. Right next to the Putra World Trade Center rail station, the hotel offers maximum mobility housed in an imposing tower block. The rooms are clean and updated, with professional staff. Nothing of the frills that characterize “luxury” hotels, but certainly with all the basics that would make your hotel stay a breeze.
Check in for: Its vicinity to important places. Go sightseeing at the end of your business meeting, or hop by any of the nearby restaurants. Mobility is unhindered, as the hotel can be easily reached by car, train, or other public transit.
- Hilton Kuala Lumpur. A few minutes away from the city center, this is where you should be if you want to be at the hub. The clean pastel shades of the hotel make for a comfortable yet sober atmosphere, letting you focus on getting your stuff done. With 510 rooms, you can always hop by when you’re in town. Ergonomic fixtures also help you maintain a good posture even in the midst of work.
Check in for: The Petronas Twin Towers, which is just 15 minutes off. The floor-to-ceiling windows allow you to observe the hustle and bustle of KL, imbibing the energy along the way. The hotel is also right beside the KL Sentral Station.
- Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral. Trendy and upbeat, the hotel stands “aloft” right across KL Sentral Station. It’s another good place, with an industrial and minimalist design for the no-nonsense businessman. There’s also an extremely proactive level of service, which makes every stay a pleasure.
Check in for: The surprise at the rooftop — a Polynesian themed bar. Of course, Central Market is just a couple of kilometers away. A shopping trip could be the best antidote to a stressful day of meetings and shuffling paper.
Kuala Lumpur is a lively city like no other. It is a bustling fusion of East and West, and has been rated as an Alpha World City. It is the perfect backdrop to a successful business deal, or to a fruitful brainstorming session.
The city is well-connected via light rail, mono-rail, and taxis, so you can get from Point A to Point B without much hassle. If you are coming in from outside KL, most of the hotels are close to (or easily accessed from) the KL International Airport.
At the same time, it is the perfect place to stay and relax. All these three hotels — and many others — embody the spice of the Malaysian culture. From a heartfelt service to distinct Asian accents in the design, there’s no mistaking where you are.
