Impiana KLCC is a great home base for exploring Kuala Lumpur
I chose the Impiana due to its location as we were planning on visiting the Aquaria and Petrosains.
Check in and check out was fast even though they have only few counters available. The room we got, had wooden flooring, which was fine by me. Reason being as a parent, I feel that hotel carpets are not hygienic. You can see the wooden floor if its dirty or dusty. The view wasn’t fantastic (view of a office building) but it was alright as we spend the whole day visiting the Aquaria, Petrosains and the Petronas Twin Towers. The room even had a bathtub which both my son and wife enjoyed soaking themselves. The room was clean and toiletries was adequate, housekeeping even came in the evening on both days to check if everything was ok and gave me without any additional charge a blanket. Thats what you call “Seeing to the Guest Needs”.
The TV Channels had the Malaysian Channels, Movies, Disney and so on. They even provided a DVD Player which had a USB slot but it didn’t work when I tried to plug in my Thumbdrive. Both days we had breakfast at the Tonka Bean Cafe. The variety there was good, there were lots to eat ranging from Western to Local Dishes.
I was surprised and happy that there was a covered, air conditioned walkway connecting the hotel to KLCC and the Twin Towers. We didn’t need to face the cars or even the Kuala Lumpur heat. The walkway was also a blessing as it rained when we about to return to the hotel. The bell staff said that the walkway even leads to the Pavillion Shopping Centre but we didn’t venture there as we were too tired.
For me the Impiana KLCC is a great home base for exploring Kuala Lumpur. Don’t worry so much about the view of your room (unless you are going to spend the whole day in the room). There’s lots to do outside and the covered, air-conditioned pathway is a great help but avoid the rush hour when people return from work. Rooms are clean and services is alright.
