Leo Palace Hotel (New Wing) – Strategic Location Beside PWTC

We had a three days and two nights stay at the Leo Palace Hotel at Kuala Lumpur before Ramadan.

The room we got was quite neat and had a comfortable space for a family of three with a toddler.

We had a study table where you can do work (which I don’t recommend if you are on vacation – but of course, travel bloggers don’t have much choice), charge mobile phones, and have coffee because an electric kettle and coffee mix is readily within your reach.

We got the Executive Suite which comes with a decent bathroom that has the basic toiletries and a hair dryer.

It was a bit small but the size was fairly comfortable.

From our room, we had a view of Kuala Lumpur city lights, Sunway Putra Mall, KL Tower and The Petronas Twin Towers. We love watching beautiful lights of the city at night, so this is a plus for us!

At the new wing of the Leo Palace Hotel we found a spot where you can chill while waiting for your partner to check in or check out of the hotel. But of course for us, this was the perfect spot for taking pictures!

The Leo Palace Hotel (New Wing) is located just beside the Putra Worldtrade Centre, so they are usually fully booked when there are events or conferences. I would advise you to plan ahead and book early if you want to stay here to avoid inconvenience.

Of course, we wouldn’t miss the chance to make the most of this staycation without trying out their swimming pool. It was perfectly situated on a height in the 9th floor where you get the wide view of the city with the nearby public transport (woo hoo for the kids to see trains!), buildings, and PWTC of course.

Our son loves the water, so this was really fun for him! We were able to capture a moment with the beautiful sky in the late evening at the rooftop of the hotel. We believe we got the perfect picture with all the beauty in it. The beautiful scenery with our beautiful family.

On our last day at the hotel, we had their mini breakfast buffet with a pretty good choices of food for guests of different ages. It was just right to have our bellies full to conclude our stay.

Definitely try this accommodation if you need to be near the area, and especially if you are attending event at PWTC! The price is pretty much reasonable for the convenience, comfort and service they provide.

VHM Experience – Vivatel Kuala Lumpur

Vouk Hotel Management offers a range of hotel brands that offers top quality services. One of the hotels under their management is the Vivatel Kuala Lumpur, and we got a chance to book a stay with them before Ramadan. Here is our experience!

We were greeted with a green lit lobby upon check in. The lobby interiors were beautiful. It really made the hotel memorable and unique.

Oh, we need to mention that there was also a vending machine placed in the hotel. This is perfect for the late night-snackers like me! You can grab a snack fast without leaving the hotel premises. But if you are looking for something heavier, there is a mamak restaurant just across the road.

When we got to our executive suite room number 1017, it was a sweet surprise.

Our room had a mini living room where you can entertain guests or just sit and read or watch the television while you relax. It is not that big but quite spacious for three people and a toddler to spend some time.

Our bedroom, on the other hand, was very spacious. A large bed with a very inviting interior will really provide a good rest if you are looking for one.

There was also a study table where you can do some work.

We like that the closet was all mirrors. It made the space look a lot bigger than it was.

Inside the closet were the usual complimentary hotel room items like bathrobe, ironing board and an iron. We especially love the laundry bag!

The washroom was also surrounded with glass doors. I like that it looked neat and clean with the whole bathroom layout. They have a tub that had glass doors leading to the shower and wash area as well.

Our room was basically surrounded with glass, too, so you can see a whole view of the city.

Our suite also had a mini kitchen which lets us dine inside or have coffee any time of the day if we want to stay in for a little bit.

Since we checked in during the night, it was a pleasant surprise the next morning! The full windows provided a good morning view that even my toddler couldn’t resist. We were even surprised that he was not afraid of heights!

We opted to add an extra bed, which was placed in the living room, yet we still got plenty of room to move. And of course, it was now time to check out their café for a good breakfast.

Hotels under Vouk Hotel Management are not only known for good service but also for good food.

Vivatel has Retro Café which has colorful seats waiting near the reception area and a great window view.

Inside the café there were white tables and a very good interior decorations which were somewhat geometrical in pattern but looked really modern.

The breakfast buffet offered variety of beverages, fruits, cereals and pastries which you can warm depending on your preferences. They had a wide range of offerings for a full breakfast meals as well.

They also had a gym where Shafa’s mom decided to have a brief workout.

The glass around the room allows you to see some greeneries outside and the pool beside it makes going to the gym awesome.

The swimming pool had a chilling place where you can sit if you don’t want to get in the water but you need to watch the kids.

The pool was located at the 5th floor and had a partition for kids and adults. And yes, the kid’s swimming pool was safe for even our toddler’s height!

If you are not a fan of working out, you can still have your exercise while taking a stroll at the Viva Mall just beside the hotel. It was connected at the ground floor of the hotel, so you can easily access the mall if you need to go buy something or have more choices for food.

Overall, our short stay in Vivatel was wonderful. The decorations made you feel closer to nature and it was very refreshing to see a lot of greens in the surroundings. They also had a very modern interior concept. Definitely checking out more hotel under Vouk Hotel Management!
