GTower Hotel @ Kuala Lumpur

Sam and I love hotel staycation and last month I’ve plan one for hubby’s  birthday cum father’s day celebration. This time we staying right in the heart of the city at GTower Hotel Kuala Lumpur located at Jalan Tun Razak.

GTower Hotel Kuala Lumpur boasts 180 rooms is especially designed for corporate and business executives. The hotel has strong environment-friendly credentials due to its placement within Malaysia’s first internationally green-rated building GTower.

Our Executive Room is good sized, tastefully decorated in chic and contemporary theme. Nothing much on the view outside, just some boring offices. Please bear in mind that GTower Hotel is nestled amidst the office building, so expect to see many white collars in this building if you choose to stay here on weekdays. Hotel lobby is on the 11th floor, the rooms are 11-13th floor, the restaurant/bar/club floor is 28th / 29th, you have to use different lifts to get from 1-13 and 13-28.

The king sized bed is plush and comfortable. The room is fully carpeted too which is a plus point for me as I hate walking on the freezing tiled or wooden flooring.

Equipped with both rainforest and hand shower. The marble bench in the cubicle is weird though.

Checking out the swimming pool is a must! The infinity pool is situated at Level 11 which supposed to be a panoramic view which KLCC can be seen too I believe however the view now is totally obstructed by the new high rise building which is still under construction. Only adult pool available just like their tagline of ‘Designed for Business Travel’. #wrongdecisonmaking

Sam still enjoyed herself to the max nonetheless and we had a great bonding time leisured at the pool side.

Other hotel facilities are gym, SPA, foodhive that houses a few eateries such as Rakuzen, Subway and etc. There are also a few restaurants and bar which worth checking out, Tanzini Upperdeck, Tanzini and View Rooftop Bar.

Verdict: Great location indeed, walking distance to LRT station, KLCC and Avenue K. A nice stay but not memorable though. Apparently the hotel and the facilities were designed to cater for business people and I only found out that they do not have facilities for children under 12 years. I think I should do more research when seeking for staycation especially family with kid(s) like me.
