Recently, I got to stay in this hotel Mandarin Court in Jalan Maharajalela Kuala Lumpur, and from the outside, it is nothing to shout about. However, once in the room, I was quite pleased with it and here are some reasons why.
I stayed in the cheapest room available that night during Bon Jovi’s concert so that I didn’t have to be stuck in the jam going home. This hotel is perfect for stayovers during concerts because it is just walking distance across the bridge to the Stadium Merdeka. Anyways, there is a bathtub in my room! Bathtubs will win over any other feature in hotels I stay in.
A separate sink and toilet area in the bathroom. I love old hotels as it is totally sound proof. It has thick walls that when I flush, people outside won’t hear it, unlike those new style hotel bathrooms with transparent glass pretending to be walls!
Standard but nicely arranged coffee making facilities, even using IKEA mugs. There is actually a notice saying we have to pay extra if we ask them for extra packets of coffee, but my sis went to ask and they gave her a few packets for free, aww maybe they were charmed by her beauty.
I saved the best for last. This hotel actually has a rooftop pool, a baby pool and an adult pool, although quite small. What was epic was….from this pool we could view the Stadium Merdeka! Free concerts for everyone! Of course, it was just from behind the stadium but better than nothing right?
