Hotel Review : Pacific Regency Hotel Suites, Kuala Lumpur

This is a sponsored entry.

Perhaps this would be the first photo overloaded entry after blogging for years. 20 ++ photos n fact.

Photos speaks a million words. I believe that browsing through the photos, you would be in love with this hotel, one of the oldest hotel in KL. :)


- KL Tower and Pacific Regency Hotel Suites -

From the UberX ride we had, we went back to our hotel which located opposite KL Tower. We didn't noticed about it and our kind driver told us that there's a restaurant located at KL Tower as well, and their fine dining was good. Lovely aerial view of part KL from above.


- Pacific Regency Hotel Suites #PHRS (5 Star) -

Bets some of you would love to know how long it takes to walk to KLCC. It took us approximately 15 minutes to walk from PRHS to KLCC, and yes, we WALK from the hotel to KLCC, with the help of my iphone 5s maps.

- Our Suites -

We do surprise with the spacious corridor, the spacious room and etc. Perfectly fine to us. :) Even though the hotel is a bit old, however, the hotel management had upgraded/ refurnish from one level to another to make guests feel comfortable while staying with them. :)

Complimentary drinks provided and how lovely is the room setting.

Jalan-Jalan Cultural! @ Central Market & Petaling Street 茨厂街, Kuala Lumpur (#KL)

Had our simple breakfast at Pacific Express Hotel and that's the way to start a brand new day! 

So, both of us, Beverly and I had a good morning walk from the hotel to China Town Walk, which located behind our hotel (The blue building is Central Market).


- China Town Walk @ Laluan Pekan Cina -

It was officially my first stroll at that area, never knew that the design of those buildings was influenced by the Chinese culture back then. :) I do love heritage, without them, there's no today.

- Laluan Kasturi/ Kasturi Walk -

Where Central Market hawker stall located! Central Market can be classified as one of the place where crowd would be.


- Laluan Kasturi -

WAU symbol. One of the sign which symbolized the culture of Malaysia. :)


- Cultural Walk -

Just like what I have mentioned, culture is important and representing the nation today.


- China Town Walk @ Laluan Pekan Cina -

Random us, doing random stuffs!


- Sun Ray -

Love this shot, the morning sun ray.

I love being a tourist, and most of the time they treated me as one and wait until they knew I could speak Malay, they were surprised! haha :D

Just bare in mind, not everyone are nice, just be extra careful when we passes by the alleys and pick who to speak to!


- At the crossroad -


- At the Crossroad -

It took us less than 10 minutes for those who knew the way to Petaling Street. We were on a mission to find my mom requested cookies from one of the coffee shop, unfortunately it was under construction that day. :(

They named it as 鸡蛋糕 Egg Cake!


- Petaling Street 茨厂街 -

It was so long since the last visit, my parents normally comes here for the famous ROASTED DUCK!


- Mua Chi -

I am not a fan of peanuts, but I like the soft gummy texture of mua chi. Beverly bought one box for a try!


- Kam Lin Kei 金莲记 -

This restaurant has been well known with their Hokkein Mee! I love Hokkien mee! Never had the original one from here, but I had them at their Lot 10 HuTong food court. Delicious!


- Local Food Stalls -

Morning, there are varieties for us to choose from the first stall to the last. I bought fried radish for a try. The local Malaysian way. :)


- Girlie Snap -

The last snap before we walk back to our hotel for check-out!

That's all!

Exploring Central Market with Pacific Express Hotel! @Kuala Lumpur

This is a sponsored entry. :)

It tooks 8 to 10 minutes walking distance from Pasar Seni LRT or Masjid Jamek LRT to reach the first hotel of our short trip down to KL.

It was my first staying at Central Market area and we had a great experience there.


- The Room - Standard -

First, check-in and handed them RM50.00 as refundable deposit upon check-out.

The room was clean and comfortable and moreover the building was newly refurnished and completed last year! The modernise and compact design do suits activist travellers as well. Who doesn't want a comfy bed for a good night sleep before starting a new day?


- Access Card -

We stayed at the 7th Floor. I love the mug of Pacific Express Hotel. :) Coffee was ringing my mind that time. Assistance by Pacific Express crew was good and security was good too, although checking in might not the best experience ever.


- Complimentary Drinks -

With this technology era, internet is a priority to all ages and there goes for Pacific Express too! We have 24 hours free internet access, in case we can't, just contact the reception, they will be happy to assist!


- The Washroom -

Amenities such as hair dryer and deluge rain showers (I LOVE THIS!) are included, whereby we do not have to worry that we need to soak with our wet hair!


- The Room -

Lovely couch and comfortable bed and pillows, I miss that bed.


- Full Body Mirror -

This is fabulous to let us decide what to wear and dressed nicely. :)  Just to let you know, robs and in house safe box were left behind the mirror, which happens to be a dressing cupboard as well.


- The Minibar and Desk -


- The Room * credit to #Saturdate * -

So I was standing there and we can determine how spacious the hotel room is. :)


- Rooftop Swimming Pool -

Pacific Express Hotel, which ideally located in the heart of downtown KL, how does it fee while enjoying the view from the top of the building?


- Gym Room -


- Gym Room -

Equip with basic gym facilities, we might need a run after a full day meal in KL. *Sweat*


- The faces of Kuala Lumpur -

Should I say it is the original KL's face?

The said Pacific Express Hotel was once HSBC Bank, which they had renovated in to this 4 Star Hotel currently.

The convenient and affordable Pacific Express Hotel allow us to have a short walking distance to the iconic place of interest such as Central Market (it's behind the hotel), Masjid India Bazaar, Chinatown, Merdeka Square, asjid Jamek and even, the National Mosque.
 

- Breakfast @ Uncle Lim's -


- Breakfast @ Uncle Lim's -

There were limited choice from Uncle Lim's, however the limits are delicious with local and western delis. Something I love about Uncle Lim's, there coffee was good!


- Limousine and Taxi Charges -

- Pacific Express Hotel (Central Market) -

We are quite satisfied with our stay in Pacific Express Hotel. In fact, walking out alone may not be a wise choice during the night, do bring along a few more friends if we decide to explore KL.

Travellers who love exotic and culture (cultural seeker), may love to stay with Pacific Express Hotel. For me, understanding and getting the original local culture are important and should I say, I love the vintage China Town Walk around that area. :)
