Renaissance KL

Renaissance KL

Hubby and I checked into Reneissance KL sometime in February this year. My mother had a membership that entitles some vouchers. We used one of the vouchers that offers an RM260 nett rate for a night stay, inclusive of breakfast buffet for two.

Reneissance KL is one of the better hotels in the golden triangle. They are considered as a 5 star luxury hotel. hmm....not so sure about the Luxury part...but it is definately 5 star. Just abit worn-out thats all.

The Room
As you can see, the room was spacious. I just loveeee the kingsize bed. It was extremely comfy.
The room and furnitures were tastefully done and clean. Albeit a bit worn-out and old.
There was a working desk, but i do not remember if there were any free broadband or wifi for internet. TV channels were quite good. You can watch some movies fromVision4 or Astro HBO.
You get the usual coffee maker and fridge.

The Bathroom
The bathroom was quite lovely. A good size of bathtub for a good soak and a shower panel. The toilettries were sufficient. Though be warned that the bathroom floor can be quite slippery. I almost slipped!! and the hubby too!

What i love about Renaissance must be the swimming pool! Though it was only a nights stay, we did manage to take a dip at the pool the following day, before we check-out at noon. I really like the pool because it is of a good size and i had a nice swim. Other than that, they have a gym....and also many restaurants to dine at within the hotel.
I've probably tried all the buffets available there and i must say all of them are pretty good. Especially Sagano, if you like japanese food. The buffet spread isn't extensive but the sashimi was very fresh!! It is not cheap. Approx 100++ per head, but if you have membership, you're entitled for 50% if 2 person dine. However, the japanese buffet is only available on weekends.

The Location

The Location of Renaissance KL is really very convenient because it is situated at the heart of the city. Though it can be quite far to walk to the shopping places, but the monorail is just right infront of the hotel. We took a short walk to the monorail and hop down right smack infront of the shopping paradize, sungei wang, lot 10, Low yat plaza,....etc. Food and shopping are a plenty. Also, the must try are the arabian food like Tarbush....There are alot of those eateries around as you walk along sg.wang.

Overall, we really enjoyed and like our stay over at Renaissance KL. For the price of RM260 nett inclusive of buffet breakfast for 2 is definately worth the penny.
