Hotel Stripes, Kuala Lumpur

English

Is the hustle and bustle life taking a toll on you? Do you wish for a short escapade to somewhere quaint, where life slows down and you get to immerse yourself in the surroundings? Well, there’s a place just across the causeway.

Located in Kuala Lumpur in the Jalan Kamunting neighbourhood, Hotel Stripes is the place to go – set in a reclusive yet urbanised town known for its many unique personalities.

You’ll find yourself experiencing the rich culture, art and history in the neighbourhood of the former Asian Heritage Row; with twenty-two 1940s shophouses, dynamic nightlife, cafés, art galleries, and creative establishments. This part of the city is the perfect synergy of old and new, and a perfect getaway for you to rejuvenate your mind and soul.

Hotel Stripes, the second Autographic Collection hotel in Malaysia – first being The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur, a YTL Classic Hotel – brings on a different idea of travel. Feeding off from the history and heritage of Jalan Kamunting, Hotel Stripes offers you an unparalleled experience on the local scene, mixed with edge and adventure. Unlike conventional travelling, Hotel Stripes ultimately transforms you like one of the locals through the pulsating activities around.

But… don’t really feel like exploring? Fret not! Once entered in the stylish and chic 184-room hotel, you know you’re in for a treat.

Enjoy their all-day dining restaurant, The Snug, to settle your needs or just for a quickie (caffeine fix, of course!).

Or their French-style restaurant, Brasserie 25. Throw fine dining out and enter a vibe of relaxation with their laid back yet flavourful cuisine. Mimicking their historical surrounding, Brasserie 25 gives a rustic charm with its red bricks arcades, mid-century copper sputnik chandeliers and dark wood floors. Rather something light instead? Come in during the afternoon as Brasserie 25 offers Le Goûter – an afternoon tea with a French twist.

Not really a foodie? Then Man Tao Bar is for you.

Offering a stunning view of the KL Tower, Man Tao – a rooftop pool bar – is a trendy spot to relish in soothing tunes over drinks, coupled with a captivating sunset. So why not kick back, relax and enjoy your me-time, or with your loved one, while overlooking at Kuala Lumpur’s skyline with your favourite beverage?

Mercure Shaw Parade, Kuala Lumpur

English

An all-day dining restaurant, a lobby lounge and a rooftop pool bar are just some of the amenities that greet you as you step into the Mercure Kuala Lumpur Shaw Parade. Featuring 176 Deluxe Rooms, 33 Privilege Rooms and 4 Superior Suites, there is a room for every occasion, from providing a stay for your family vacation to pampering you on your business trip.

Being located right above the Shaw Parade mall affords you convenient access to a wide selection of dining, shopping and entertainment options, among others. Guests itching for a more adventurous retail experience can head to malls such as Berjaya Times Square, Sungei Wang Plaza and Lot 10, all of which are just a short walk away.

The interior design of the hotel is a beauty to behold in its own right, too. Modern art pieces can be found at every turn, from the halls and the corridors to the walls of each room. These pieces are more than just mere decoration, they symbolise the rich local culture that the hotel is inspired by.

The all-day dining restaurant, Chorak, has Chinese-Peranakan elements in its décor in the form of vintage floor tiles and colourful display pieces. Unlike some hotels that are dark and musty, the floor-to-ceiling windows along the corridors welcome natural light and give the hotel a bright and airy feel.

Of course, a trip to Malaysia is never really complete without a gastronomic trail of the best local eats. Start your day at Chorak, then venture out and explore the vicinity to be greeted by the clanging sound of wok and ladle and the lively chatter of locals. Here, you’ll find hawkers whipping up traditional delicacies like Nyonya Curry Laksa, Nasi Lemak, Nasi Goreng and even Tom Yam.

A modern establishment in a rustic neighbourhood ­­— that is what makes a stay at the hotel so enchanting and memorable. Savour it while you’re can, you’re going to miss it when it’s over.

Bahasa Malay

Restoran yang dibuka sepanjang hari, ruang lobi  dan bar diatas bumbung adalah di antara kemudahan yang menyambut kedatangan anda apabila anda menjejak kaki di Mercure Kuala Lumpur Shaw Parade. Dilengkapi dengan 176 Bilik Mewah, 33 Bilik Istimewa dan 4 bilik suit terunggul; terdapat bilik yang sesuai untuk pelbagai keperluan anda seperti penginapan bercuti bersama keluarga atau memanjakan diri anda ketika anda dalam urusan perniagaan luar negara.

Terletak di atas pusat membeli-belah Shaw Parade, ia antara lain memberi anda akses mudah untuk memilih pelbagai kedai makanan, membeli-belah dan hiburan.  Para tetamu yang ingin pengalaman membeli-belah yang lebih menarik boleh  berjalan kaki untuk singgah ke pusat membeli-belah seperti Berjaya Times Square, Sungei Wang Plaza dan Lot 10.

Reka bentuk dalaman hotel ini mempunyai keindahan yang tersendiri. Seni lukisan moden boleh didapati di setiap penjuru, dari dewan-dewan hotel hingga ke koridor dan dinding-dinding di dalam setiap bilik. Setiap lukisan bukan hanya sekadar penghiasan tetapi ia melambangkan sebuah  kebudayaan  yang mendalam yang hotel ini mahu menampilkan.

Restoran Chorak, yang dibuka sepanjang hari, mempunyai reka bentuk yang berunsurkan Cina-Peranakan yang terdiri daripada lantai jubin yang klasik dan pameran yang berwarna-warni. Berbanding dengan beberapa hotel yang agak suram dan hapak, tingkap yang sepanjang siling hingga lantai di koridor memberi cahaya semula jadi  membuatkan suasana di hotel bercahaya dan berangin.

Semestinya, lawatan ke Malaysia tidak akan lengkap tanpa mencuba pelbagai makanan tempatan di sini. Mulakan hari anda di Chorak, kemudian teroka tempat-tempat berdekatan yang akan menyambut anda dengan bunyi kuali, senduk dan celoteh orang tempatan yang rancak berbual. Di sini, anda akan bertemu dengan penjaja yang memasak makanan tradisi seperti Laksa Kari Nyonya, Nasi Lemak, Nasi Goreng, dan juga Tom Yam.

Pertubuhan moden di kawasan kedesaan – ini yang membuat penginapan anda di hotel ini amat mendalam dan kekal di memori. Nikmati penginapan anda kerana anda akan merinduinya apabila ia berlalu.

酒店的室内设计也是值得一再欣賞的美景。现代艺术品可以在每一个转角,从大厅和走廊到每个房间的墙壁上都可以找到。这些艺术品不仅是装饰品,它们象征着丰富的当地文化。

全天营业的餐馆Chorak使用了娘惹民俗元素以复古地砖和色彩鲜艳的陈列形式装饰。不像一些黑暗和霉味的酒店,沿走廊的落地玻璃窗欢迎自然光线,给酒店一个明亮通风的感觉。

当然,如果没有最好的本地美食路线,马来西亚之旅从未真正完成。在Chorak开始新的一天,然后冒险出走,探索附近,受到炒锅和钢包叮当响的声音以及热闹的当地人的喋喋不休。

在这里,您会发现小贩们将在煮传统美食如娘惹咖喱拉萨,椰浆饭,炒饭和泰式酸辣汤。

Capri by Fraser, Kuala Lumpur

English

Capri by Fraser offers an innovative and funky accommodation solution that is especially great for long stay.

The studio apartment is, in a word, cavernous. It is the most spacious room I have seen. You enter the room into a very spacious kitchen, complete with induction hob, microwave, frying pan, China plates and cutlery, spatula and can opener. There is also an espresso machine with a couple of capsules.

Then you proceed to a huge bathroom with an L-shaped counter top. There is plenty of room to move around in the bathroom. There is a huge shower stall and a seperate toilet cubicle with its own door, which I find very practical. One person can use the toilet while the other uses the shower or counter top. It is not like other hotels where is one person uses the toilet, then the entire bathroom is out of bounds to everyone else.

There is plenty of storage room all along the studio apartment. There is also a long work desk. The actual bedroom is quite small. There is only space for a bed and a television. There is a balcony.
As mentioned above, you have your own fully functioning kitchen. So it is possible to whip up your own meals. That is great for long-stay guests.

Another advantage Capri has for long stay guests is that on every floor, there is a laundry room, complete with washing machines and dryers. All you have to do is get a token from the Front Desk.

If you are bored, there is an infinity pool and a spacious gym, complete with a boxing sandbag and kettlebells. On the top floor of the hotel, there are several jacuzzis overlooking the city. This is a great place to watch the sun go down.

Breakfast is busy but there is always adequate food. Though busy, the servers are always attentive, prompt and polite.

Next to the hotel is a large mall, Nexus. The nearest subway station is around 400m away. You can easily grab a taxi to to get to the subway station for only RM$3.

A new hotel, it is only around 1 year old. I highly recommend this hotel especially for long-stay guests.

简体中文

Capri by Fraser 提供创新和时尚的住宿方案,更是长期住宿的最佳选择。

这里的小型公寓房间,一个词形容,宽敞舒适,这是我见过最宽敞的房间。当你一进入这个房间,迎接你的是一个宽阔的厨房,厨房用具一应俱全:电磁炉,微波炉,平底锅,中国风的碗碟,刀具,抹刀和开罐器都在那里。那里也摆放了一架浓缩咖啡机附上一对咖啡胶囊。

然后,你会进入一个拥有L型流理台的宽大浴室。浴室里有非常大的空间可以让你自由走动。那里有个别间隔的沐浴区,还有用一道门划分出来的如厕隔间,个人觉得这是非常实在的。当一个人在用厕所时,另一个人也可以使用花洒或者流理台。这不像其他的酒店,当一个人在使用浴室时,那么这整间浴室就无法让其他人使用。

那里边也有很多的储藏室还有长型的办公桌。真正的睡房空间不大,只能够容纳一张床和一架电视机,那里也有一个露台。

如以上所述,你拥有专属自己配备齐全的厨房,可以为自己准备膳食,这对长期住客来说是非常棒的。另一个优点Capri 提供给长期住客的是在每一层都设有洗衣房,那里备有洗衣机和烘干机,你只需要向前台索取代币就可以了。

如果你觉得无聊,那里还有广阔的游泳池,宽敞的健身室,配有拳击沙包和壶铃。酒店的顶层还备有几个按摩池可以让你俯瞰整个城市。这里也是观赏日落的理想地点。

早餐时段是忙碌的但是食物的供应永远充足。虽然忙碌,但那里的服务员服务周到,快速富有礼貌。

酒店隔邻有一个大型商场,Nexus。最靠近的地铁站只有400米之距。你可以很轻易地招到计程车到达地铁站,费用只需要区区RM3

 

我强烈推荐这家建立只有一年的新酒店,特别是给那些想要长期住宿的客人们。
