Come for the swimming pool and Bluetooth speaker ”
Decided to check out the hotel based on rave reviews on TimeOut and various travel websites. Had a satisfactory experience, but was let down in several aspects. Firstly the WiFi in my room was poor. It could be due to my smartphone configuration, but I came from Shanghai and experienced no issue with the WiFi service in my hotel room there. Plus I don't expect WiFi to be an issue, given how active the hotel is on social media and websites. Secondly, some of the facilities in the room were faulty. My table lamp was non-functional and the holder for the water hose in my toilet and the window blind needed fixing. Having said these, the entire experience is good. I particularly enjoy having a Bluebooth speaker in my room. Also really like the rooftop swimming pool. The entire hotel has the chic vibe and I sincerely hope it will be kept this way moving forward.

Definitely my first and last time staying at the hotel”
I have traveled to many countries and stayed in many hotels and yet I encountered many 'first' for my stay at KL Journal. 1. I was only given 1 key and when I asked for 1 more, the staff said they ran out. 2. The room had a shitty smell and whenever I return to the room, I had to keep the room door open for 1/2 to 1 hour plus placing orange peel all over to get rid of the smell. 3. The towels was more appropriate to be used as rags than for guest. There are yellowish and worn. 4. On the second day of my stay, housekeeping took away the face towel from my room and did not replace it with fresh ones. When I asked for it, the staff told me that they ran out of face towels. 5. The WC was big and comfortable but the cistern is too small and does not hold enough water to flush the big WC. Therefore, have to be ready when doing your business as you may not be able to flush it away. Maybe the reason for the shitty smell in my room. 6. The razor in my room was opened and seemed to be used.

A pleasant stay”
There was a glitch during check-in whereby my name was keyed in wrongly and the request i made prior to the booking was unfulfilled. The room i paid for was supposed to be decorated for my sister’s birthday. Despite it all, we had a pleasant stay. We loved the pool and the friendly service from the staffs! Thank you.

Location is good, 5min walk to Pavillion and Alor street night market. Staff were polite but not hospitable, they don't seem to greet you or smile much ( not sure if it's a cultural thing.) The style is modern and chic - imagine Holiday Inn standard with more modern interior. Bed was large and comfy. However the cleanliness could be improved, there was hair left in the shower when I walked in.

Quick getaway possible!”
The staff were so friendly and accommodating, and the location is great! We were there for a quick weekend getaway, just to rejuvenate and refresh and The KL Journal did just that. We just spent time chilling in the room and by the pool, and when we needed to get out, it was literally a stone throw away from everywhere within the golden triangle! Awesome place to go. Would give it 2 thumbs and 2 big toes up!

Swimming Pool out of service”
The swimming pool was out of service when I got there but wasn't specified on Agoda. Without a swimming pool this hotel is a bit expansive but instead of that it would have been really a fair deal.

Needs some improvement”
Pros: Good location.... everywhere is easy to travel from here... Cons: Staff wasnt friendly and wasnt helpful when it comes to service... Every sunday theres a party at the swimmig club... So u cant swim at night... Even if u swim in the morning there will be cups and plastic in the pool... So this hotel is not good for kids and also for those who crave for tranquility during their sleep time... cos from level 1 u can hear the music from the pool party which is level 11.. thats how loud it is! Even from our rooms... its hard to sleep!

Value for money in the perfect location ”
We stay in KL with our daughter every few months and feel lucky to have finally found this hotel. It is in the perfect location for shopping, dinners, easy access to KLCC. The twin room has 1 queen and 1 single which is great for our small family. The bathroom is well sized and the water pressure is excellent. Our room also came with views on the Petronas Twin Towers. The pool is small but is cool and gives a great view across the city. Another stand out feature is the breakfast. You can order a fresh coffee of your choice plus they also have an alacarte menu to order from which is all included in the buffet. Plus the best banana cake I’ve ever had! The only downside was the jack hammer from renovating above us. We had to ask them to stop on the Saturday, which they did. Highly recommend this hotel.

Good location and comfy room”
Love the location as it's away from the hustle and bustle, yet not located in a quiet back alley, and that it's not too far away from The Pavilion shopping mall, about 5-10mins walk. Comfy room size, and very comfortable bedding. Love the hipster decor overall, infinity saltwater pool and the 1-for-1 cocktails during happy hour! One downside is the relatively thin walls, I can literally hear single movement when the housekeeping was in the room next door. At times it even felt like the housekeeping was opening my room door while i was taking a nap.

Value for money hotel”
The hotel is new with sleek design! Love the hotel lobby as well. Check-in was a breeze (10min at most!) even though we came in pretty late due to the city traffic jam. Staff there are pretty friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was every 2 days (u can request for daily housekeeping if I’m not wrong) - and it’s totally fine by us cos we are not the messy kind anyway. Location was splendid! A walk to Pavilion took us about 10min. We took Grab from our hotel to other locations and it seems most of the drivers are able to find the hotel. Overall, a great hotel to stay in!
