TRAVEL | PULLMAN KL BANGSAR HOTEL IS NOT JUST A BUSINESS HOTEL

Last month, I visited Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to attend a meeting with a prospective client. Aside from blogging, I do marketing and business development consultancy work for a number of multinational companies.

After confirming the meeting dates with the client, I immediately contacted my fellow travel blogger Erica Poyauan to help me find a decent and affordable accommodation that should be near the meeting venue, i.e., the Pullman KL Bangsar Hotel. Fortunately, Erica was able to book a deluxe room for me at the same hotel at very friendly rates. I only paid USD 71 per night. That was a total bargain for a five-star hotel accommodation.

It was my second visit to the Pullman KL Bangsar Hotel. The last time was two years ago to attend a major conference conducted by the company I used to work for and I had a good experience then so I was pretty excited to go back. On both occasions, too, I saw groups and groups of tourists billeted in the hotel.

Pullman KL Bangsar Hotel is not just a business hotel. It offers amenities that are conducive to tourists alike. The hotel is strategically located in the center of the commercial and entertainment hub of Bangsar. It is only 5 minutes away from Mid Valley Mega Mall, a shopping destination. It is easily accessible to all major parts of the city via the Kerinchi Light Rapid Transit train and KL Sentral Station- KLIA Express Train.

Instead of a wall, the toilet and bath had a window. For privacy, just draw the blinds.

When I visited, the hotel lobby was adorned with Chinese lanterns in time for Chinese New Year.

Note that the route I took walking from the Universiti Train Station to Pullman KL Bangsar Hotel may not be the best route if you have a lot of pieces of luggage with you. Take the route below instead. Thanks to Pullman KL Bangsar Fan Page for this suggestion. It only shows how they truly care for their guests.
