Hotel Review by Dan’s On The Road
Ramada Suites By Wyndham KLCC recently welcomed Ming Teoh of Star2 to the hotel and Hugo’s KL. Click though to read all of his review.
An excerpt is below.
“What makes this Ramada Suites a great place for a family staycation or a launchpad for urban explorers?
- The location is central – it is right behind Changkat and only a solid 5 minute walk to Bukit Bintang.
- The suite is very spacious for kids to run (or jump) around and complete with all the amenities you want.
- The food is tasty and reasonably priced – each of our dish at Hugo’s KL was in the RM20 – 40 price range.
- The infinity pool and courtyard is a good place to unwind after a whole day out in the city.
One of the great things about this suite is it comes with a balcony. Sure, it might seem trivial but I love to hang out by the balcony with the sliding door closed just to absorb the sound of the city at different times of the day like in the morning when denizens wake up to the clanging of endless construction to the blares and honks of the cars during evening rush hour.
Our room was facing Bukit Nanas and behind the towering condominiums and office blocks is KL Tower, the second most famous tower in KL. On the other side, we were feasted with a view of The Exchange 106, the new kid on the block at the TRX financial district. I have to applaud the designer of this room for having the foresight to install a small window right in front of our comfy bed for the window opens up directly to the tower.
Everyone got dressed up and down we went to Hugo’s KL, Ramada Suites’ in-house restaurant and bar with a little bit of salsa (set your calendar, it’s on Friday nights!) in between.
Hugo’s KL has this Cuban vibe of rustic red and blue walls graced with portraits of Havana but their offerings are anything but. The kitchen has an international flair so we were served with a bit of everything – an Indian thali, a plate of noodles and a slab of salmon. Considering it was a cool and wet evening, the choices of heart-warming meals were spot on.
In the morning, Hugo’s KL is transformed into one long buffet line. The breakfast spread is not as lavish as other hotels in KL but it has everything we wanted. At one end you have the “lighties” of bread, croissant, cereal and yogurt while at the other is the “heavies” of baked beans and hash, nasi lemak, roti canai and congee. The egg station was expertly tended by a cook who knows how to make his eggs to order. Top everything with a cup of strong coffee and we are ready for our swim
After the hearty breakfast, everyone made their way up to for a morning dip. The ninth floor is where all the action is: the main deck holds a few cabanas of which one is converted into the Yoyoy Kamphora Spa while the open airy space has tables and chairs for those wanting to have a snack as you can order food from Hugo’s KL. Other facilities on this floors includes a plush lounge to read or watch TV, a launderette and an open-glass gym overlooking the apartments and swimming pool
The infinity pool stretches along the whole deck with a teeny tiny square pool for infants tucked at one corner.
The little one and me chose to dive in the big boy’s pool and the chilly waters (it rained last night) did not deter us from having a splash. The pool was only 4 feet deep so we spent most of our time wading and enjoying looking at KL Tower peeking from above. We were rather early birds as there was no one around and things only started to get busy when we were left.
So, if you are looking for an accommodation right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur that caters to all your needs without breaking the bank, have a go at Ramada Suites Kuala Lumpur City Centre!
