A 4-star hotel which resembles more like a 5-star hotel, Impiana KLCC Hotel and Spa met and exceeded our expectations. When I entered the hotel lobby, I was first greeted by the smell of the aromatherapy essential oils which reminded us that this was indeed Impiana KLCC Hotel AND Spa. Then I was warmly welcomed by the hotel staff who answered each question politely and with a sincere smile
The hotel is approximately a 5 to 10-minute walk to the Petronas Towers, roughly a 10-minute walk to the Pavilion Shopping Centre. Merely a stone’s throw away from the Trader’s Hotel and which reportedly has a fantastic bar with a great view of the towers. The hotel is also pretty near to the public gardens where there is a fabulous running track. From the airport, however, you can either pick a cab OR take a train to KL Central and then a taxi from there. The journey will take at least 40 minutes either way, but the train is relatively faster, despite what the taxi drivers might tell you.
ROOM – Club Deluxe King!
The rooms of Impiana are elegant, modern and decorated in fresh colours. The superior rooms equipped with individually controlled air-conditioning, a telephone, satellite TV, a minibar, tea and coffee making facilities. A comfortable bathroom with shower or bathtub and WC, as well as bathrobes and slippers, included. There is an extensive 24-hour pillow menu that guests can choose from but try to get in early. The ‘eye pillow’ is the most desirable and also the most elusive.
The TV is large with a great selection of channels, and the bathroom is comfortable with all the necessary amenities and bathroom products i.e. shampoo, conditioner, etc. Broadband internet is available in the room free of charge if you bring your laptop – just ask for a cable at the reception. The room was suitable for business traveller because it was having a work desk and a table lamp.
The in-room dining was both efficient and delicious. The breakfast buffet is also quite extensive with a range of choices from Japanese cuisine, Malaysian cuisine and some continental options such as different varieties of bread, cereals, cold meats, etc.
There’s a gorgeous infinity pool with a great view of the Petronas Towers. There is a small gym resided next to the pool and health spa with new but standard weights equipment (no generic machines), a free weights section, bike and treadmill. The premium is that it all seems very new and it has a fresh perspective, and there is always a gym assistant. There’s also a chill-out section with lounges!
#MacroTravellerTips – I went to Central Market to find some goodies, to buy probably. I was disappointed with it and found it to be a tourist trap full of overpriced stuff. I recommended you to go to a shop called Peter Hoe which is across the road from the market on the corner.
Wish I was staying longer there and great value for money. The staff was very helpful and efficient with everything. Overall though an excellent experience! Would recommend!Im
