Property Description

The Kuala Lumpur Journal (The KL Journal), is a new concept boutique hotel nestled in one of the few remaining historic neighbourhood just off Bukit Bintang, the city's main shopping and entertainment district. Designed with a modern retro vibe with inspired local references, The KL Journal is purpose-built to cater for a new generation of independent travellers looking for an alternative to the standard fare of chain brands that crowd the city centre – one delivers on all the essential modern day amenities but with a stamp of personal style and identity that sets it apart. In keeping with the hotel's DNA, The KL Journal's interiors highlight Malaysian Mid-century modernist style of architecture with art deco influences, decorative wrought iron grilles typically seen in Southeast Asia, rigged lighting, metal and weathered wooden surfaces. Local culture is celebrated with classic KL iconography and memorabilia that are presented in an appealing eclectic mix. The 117 rooms in the hotel are relatively spacious for a city hotel and are kept simple in a soft neutral palette. They all feature floor-to-ceiling windows, ergonomic mattresses, high thread-count sheets, a power shower and great plugged-in connectivity for all mobile devices, wireless Bluetooth connection to a high quality audio stereo system and 40 inch flat screen TVs with HDMI cables and USB charge ports. On offer are King and Twin Deluxe rooms plus eight designer corner Superior Deluxe and one Suite. All rooms feature inspiring black and white portraits of KL street life and architecture; specially commissioned by The KL Journal. In an effort to help hotel guests discover KL in an authentic way, The KL Journal has also curated its own insider guide to the city with handpicked suggestions on how to experience the surrounding neighbourhood and KL city like a local. The intention is to encourage guests to create their own personal travelogue of special experiences in KL that they'll want to bookmark. Other hotel highlights include Workers' Union on Level 1, a creative communal area designed for work and play with a flexible open plan layout. Here guests can set up their mobile work stations or opt for one of the breakout meeting rooms that feature quirky graphic wall art and installation pieces. Everything opens out onto a large green terrace with weather-beaten tables and comfy lounge seating for relaxed after-hours conversation and to unwind as the twilight hits the city. In line with keeping things simple, the hotel has one main dining restaurant, Bounty, a casual bistro with daily breakfast offering which includes freshly baked breads and pastries churned out daily from its pastry studio and a classic menu of European and Asian staples for lunch and dinner. Other amenities include a rooftop saltwater infinity pool with great vista of the city particularly at twilight and a gym for hotel guests.
