I will start my travel journey in a few days, as I lived in Kuching, Kuala Lumpur is always my transit to start my journey. For 3 days and 2 nights, I had stayed at Hilton Garden Inn with my mother which is located at the Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, or to be exactly at Chow Kit area. I can't remember when my last time I stayed around Chow Kit.

Hilton Garden Inn Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman is one of the new hotel in town and it is Hilton’s award-winning global brand, made its first entry into Malaysia. The new hotel adds 265 rooms to the Hilton Garden Inn brand’s worldwide offering.

   

I had stayed at the 6th floor, room 615 to be exactly. As I been told, from this room, I can view the famous Petronas Twin Tower. So, it is a bonus.

   

In the afternoon, the hotel lobby was busy for checking-in and check-out process. The lobby is not that spacious and the sitting area is quiet limited. So basically while waiting for my turn to check-in, my mom need to stand up around the lobby as the chair was fully occupied.

   

I can consider my mom is old, age around 63 years old, but she will be my travel buddy for a month to Indonesia & China. Unfortunately, cliche with older people, she had a knee pain. At Hilton Garden Inn, from the lobby area to the lift lobby, there will be 8 steps of ladder  to go through. So it is not really convenient for my mother. But if you are using chair, there will be an wheel chair elevator to assist you. 

   


   


For the room, I still can smell the brand new hotel. It is not that spacious but it is really worth the price. The main highlight here is their comfortable bed and pillow. It is the Hilton Standard. The room is very cozy and simple.


   


As it mentioned earlier, I can view the KLCC from my window. I love the position of the table which facing the window. I can do my work with overlooking the KL view. Wifi provided is really good.

   


   

As you can see from the photo, everything is there, and the space is quiet limited. I love the working table, it is really spacious for me. It is one of my important criteria to choose a hotel room. In the room, they using the open style wardrobe. Six cloths hangers are available. Iron, iron board, and safety deposit box also been provided.

   


   


Another highlight of the room is the bathroom. It is one of the best bathroom for this type of hotel. It feel so comfortable, spacious, and Hilton! For the toiletries, of course it's Crabtree and Evelyn, like other Hilton. It never disappoint me. To be honest, every time I was in bathroom, I felt so calm and peace.


   

At the hotel lobby, there is a computer corner where you can use the computer to surf the internet. But no chair been provided and you need to stand up to use it. 

There is also a 24-hour Pavilion Pantry® , in front of the reception, which stocks a variety of snacks, drinks, and travel essentials. So you do need to go out to 7-11 in the middle of the night if you need something. This concept is becoming popular nowadays.

 

My mother and I never missed having a breakfast at the Garden Grille. The sitting area are spacious. The varieties of the food are good and balanced. The main dishes for the two days I stay here are different. Like I said, with the price you paid, it is really worth it. You will not believed you will pay under RM200 to get all of this.

   


   


   


   


For the gym enthusiasm,  you will never missed your schedule as here also provide the Fitness Center. Everything here are all in order, function properly and looking new. The room smell fresh and nice.


   


   


We also having a lunch at the Garden Grille. I was really in love and impress with their EXPRESS 2-course western set lunch. Only RM20 for Mushroom soup+Bread+Mobley Beef Burger+Unlimited Drinks. For this set you also can choose between Fish & Chip or Alguini Al Pesto. I think this is the best deal you can have. Their mushroom soup is really must try and addictive, so good!

My mom not in mood for the western meal. So, she ordered ala carte of Seafood Tom Yang and Special Fried Rice. Both are good.
