This time, I’ll be blogging about my stay at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
It’s a 5-star hotel, but you can stay there for only $80 a night!
In Japan, it costs more than $250 per person, so you can experience the Hilton at a very reasonable price.
I’ve experienced the rooms, pool, executive lounge, spa, and more! If you are going to Kuala Lumpur, this is the hotel you should stay at.
For $40 per person, you can stay at the Hilton!
★ Expedia was often the cheapest way to book the Hilton Kuala Lumpur. Sometimes even $20 less than the regular rate! Check them out if you’re planning on booking!

Hilton room review
Bright room with fluffy king bed
This time, I will be staying in an executive room with a city view. (This is the most standard room)
Check-in time was 3:00 p.m., and we were shown to our room.
The room is characterized by a large king bed.
There was a king bed in the middle of the room.
This bed was so soft and comfortable that I couldn’t get enough of it. The pillows and bed were so soft that I felt like I was sinking into it.
It was a bit cloudy that day, but the view from the room looked good. It’s a bright room with a large window, which makes me feel refreshed.
Glad there’s a sofa to relax on while looking at the view!
In front of the bed is a large desk and a 49-inch TV.
The larger desk had a comfortable chair, and I wished I could work in a place like this every day.
The bedside and bath are connected!
And the interesting thing about this room is that the bedside is connected to the bath!
It’s amazing to have a bed right next to the bathtub, isn’t it?
Of course, you can close the door when taking a bath.
At first I thought it was a hotel with a strange layout, but when I actually spent some time there, the layout was quite comfortable.
You can move right from the bed to the bathroom and toilet, so it’s very convenient.
By the way, there was a shower room separate from the bathtub, and the bath was very comfortable.
Thick bath towels are also always available above the bathtub.
Thick bath towels in hotels make me feel happy…
The washbasin is also spacious and comfortable. It’s easy to put on makeup and get ready for the day.
Amenities: Crabtree Evelyn
The hotel’s amenities were Crabtree & Evelyn, an American brand.
The scent was Verbena & Lavender, a gentle fragrance.
It came with soap, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, and a toothbrush.
The shampoo and conditioner were of very good quality and made my hair silky smooth.
The rooms are well equipped
In addition to the amenities, the room is fully equipped. Solid fabric bathrobes and lots of hangers.
With all these hangers, you can hang a lot of clothes!
Slippers and shoe polish. The slippers weren’t very soft…
There’s even a great iron! With all this equipment, I think I could come empty-handed.
The fact that each room is so well-equipped is quintessential!
Plenty of selection in the minibar
There is also a mini-bar at the bedside. Some water was free to drink.
The fridge is full of paid drinks. I would have liked a little more room for my own drinks…
Mugs and glasses are all over the place. Not only mugs, but also glasses will make you feel comfortable in your room.
There is also a lot of free coffee and tea available. It might be hard to find a hotel with such a wide variety.
It was also well stocked with paid snacks.
A large kettle is also always available.
The minibar in this hotel was well stocked, much to my satisfaction!
Summary of room facilities
The room we stayed in this time was 44m² in size and had the following facilities.
The room was quite well-equipped and easy to spend time in.
・Free bath amenities
・Coffee and tea making facilities
・Safety deposit box
・Wake-up call service / alarm clock
・Connecting rooms available
・Flat screen TV
・Japanese service available
The pool was more fun than expected
Pool with a slide
The Hilton in Kuala Lumpur had the most fun pool I could imagine.
It’s small, but it has slides! Even though we are a couple from Alaska, we had a blast on the slide…!
There was a bed to lie on by the pool, and towels. We were able to change our towels as often as we wanted.
As it was a weekday, the pool was quite spacious to use and I was very satisfied.
Children as young as elementary school age seemed to enjoy playing there, so this hotel is recommended for families.
The pool can be used from 6:00 to 23:00, so it’s nice to go there in the evening after sightseeing.
The Executive Lounge is all you can drink and eat!
This time I booked a room on the 33rd floor where I could use the Executive Lounge.
At the Executive Lounge, you can enjoy the following free services.
- Afternoon tea
- Cocktail Time
It was a dream come true with all the drinks and sweets I could eat.
Also, since the lounge is on the 33rd floor, the view is excellent The lounge is bright with plenty of light coming in through the large windows.
You can book a room with executive lounge access on agoda. The room called “King Hilton Executive Room” has access to the lounge.
Sweets galore! Afternoon Tea
Afternoon tea from 14:30 to 16:30 is served with an array of sandwiches, scones and cakes.
The sandwich bread is moist, savory and very tasty.
It’s so good that I want to eat it again and again.
There are also many moderately sweet sweets such as pistachio cake and blueberry mousse.
We enjoyed an elegant afternoon tea with scones and tea.
The lounge at the Hilton in Kuala Lumpur was not too crowded and I could relax.
After all, it’s bliss to relax in a place with a beautiful view, isn’t it?
By the way, you can drink as much as you want outside of afternoon tea. Snacks are always available.
I am happy to be able to eat as much delicious food as I want, whenever I want.
From 18:00 to 20:00, you can enjoy light refreshments during cocktail hour.
Mainly vegetables and hot food. I’m glad I didn’t get to eat much fresh veggies in Malaysia!
The crispy fried dumplings were also excellent. The food in this lounge is delicious.
I had imagined it to be a snack for drinks, but the volume was so large that it filled me up.
It was a very satisfying cocktail hour with spicy pasta and other dishes.
Of course, you can drink all the alcohol you want, so if you like to drink, this is probably a pretty good choice.
A wide variety of breakfast
You can also enjoy breakfast at the Executive Lounge from 6:00 to 10:00.
There are so many kinds of breakfast! Lots of fluffy breads.
Vegetables, ham, salmon, etc. were also on the menu. Breakfast in the morning in a place with a beautiful view is a luxurious time.
It’s nice to be able to eat lots of fresh vegetables.
Lots of hams and cheeses. That’s the kind of selection you’d expect from a five-star hotel.
By the way, in addition to the Executive Lounge, we could also have breakfast at the Basco restaurant on the lobby floor.
Basco is a very spacious restaurant where you can have breakfast from all over the world.
There was also a wide variety of Chinese and Indian curries.
As I was already full from the breakfast at the Executive Lounge, I mainly enjoyed the fruit at Basco.
Basco was bustling, so if you want to have a calmer time, I recommend the breakfast at the Executive Lounge.
Pool and gym/spa area that can be used after check-out
The pool and spa area on the 8th floor can be used even after check-out.
After checking out, I was able to relax in the pool and spa area until my flight left in the evening.
They even have a fitness gym that you can use 24 hours a day for free!
Lockers and towels are available for rent, and I was very happy to be able to use them after checking out.
There is a spacious area for make-up application. There was also a hairdryer and body cream to make our stay more comfortable.
There was also a space to relax while watching TV.
I didn’t take any pictures, but I was able to use the jacuzzi and shower room for free.
It was very nice to have a shower and Jacuzzi to refresh myself before going to the airport.
I would recommend staying at this Hilton on your last day in Kuala Lumpur.
How to book the Hilton Kuala Lumpur at a discount
To book the Hilton Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, I recommend Expedia or agoda.
I compared about five booking sites, and Expedia and agoda were the cheapest by far. Sometimes even $20 cheaper than the regular rate!
If you want to use the executive lounge, try booking on agoda. Rooms with the word “Executive” in the room name have access to the lounge.
Getting to the Hilton from the airport
The Hilton in Kuala Lumpur is also very accessible.
It is connected to KL Sentral Station, the heart of Kuala Lumpur, and you can enter the hotel without going outside the station.
From Kuala Lumpur International Airport, you can take the KLIA Express to KL Sentral Station in 28 minutes.
The train runs every 15 minutes during peak hours and every 20 minutes during off-peak hours. You can take the train without worrying about the time.
The fare is 55 ringgit ($14.30) for adults and 25 ringgit ($6.50) for children.
By the way, when you arrive at KL Sentral Station, you can easily find your way to the hotel as there are many “Hilton” signs inside the station.
There is a shuttle bus that runs between KL Sentral Station and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal).
It is quite affordable at 9 ringgit ($2.34) one way, so if you are going to Malaysia by LCC, you may want to use it.
For transportation to the airport, the car-delivery app “Grab” is also useful. When we traveled from the Hilton to the airport, it cost us 73 ringgit ($19.30).
The KLIA Express costs 110 ringgit for two adults, so Grab is cheaper.
Once you’re in the car, it’s as easy to get around as a cab, so I recommend it.
- You can see the fare before you board
- You can specify your destination in the app
- You can know the identity and rating of the driver
- A major service in Malaysia
Grab is cheaper than regular cabs, and since the price is fixed in advance, there is no need to argue with the driver.
SMS verification (phone number required) is required for registration, so be sure to download and register while you are in Japan.
For your first ride, try using the coupon code below.
Coupon Code: GRABSEKAKIMI
There is another Hilton in Kuala Lumpur called the DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur, but the Hilton Kuala Lumpur is the one with the best access.
Hilton check-in time, late check-out
Check-in time at the Hilton in Kuala Lumpur is 15:00 and check-out time is 12:00.
You can use the fitness center and swimming pool before check-in and after check-out.
If you use the late check-out service, you can use your room until 14:00.
The Hilton Kuala Lumpur has nine restaurants to choose from, so you can enjoy a meal according to your preference.
There are Chinese, Japanese, and buffet restaurants, so it looks like you won’t have any trouble eating during your stay.
・Oro Cafe: Bakery
・The Lounge: Band and snacks
・Chambers: Grilled food
・China: Chinese food
・Ike Kiki: Japanese cuisine
・Glaze: European cuisine
・Zeta Bar: Live band
・Boardwalk: Light meals
You can also walk to NU Sentral, a shopping mall directly connected to KL Sentral station, and enjoy a meal there.
My impressions and reviews of my stay at Hilton
As it turns out, the Hilton Kuala Lumpur was a very satisfying stay!
- Compact and functional rooms that are easy to spend time in
- The lounge is elegant and not crowded
- Many facilities can be used after check-out
- Direct access to KL Sentral Station
I had the impression that this was a beautiful hotel in the city, and it was easy for both couples and families to stay here.
It’s not crowded, so it’s easy to stay here even if you’re alone.
Especially the pool and showers can be used even after check-out, so I would recommend staying there on your last day in Kuala Lumpur.
