About Hotel Stripes KL
As a member of Autograph Collection Hotels, Hotel Stripes KL is located in Kuala Lumpur’s urban downtown district – Jalan Kamunting. The hotel itself has a distinctive edgy yet modern chic style and its vibrant atmosphere is defined by the local scene of Jalan Kamunting’s old and new.
From Kuala Lumpur International Airport, guests can easily reach the hotel via taxi or Grab (aka Uber of Southeast Asia). The ride takes approximately 50 minutes to an hour and my Grab fare was RM 74.80 (~18 USD/$25 CAD).
As stated above, check-in starts at 3:00PM. Early check-in is available upon request, but it does depend on the status of your room. I.e. how early the previous guests check-out and how fast the room gets cleaned.
My flight landed around 10:15AM and I was able to check-in right away.
The Studio features one king size bed as well as a sofa bed and accommodates up to three guests. It occupies 38sqm, which for myself – one guest only – was more than enough room. There is a spacious desk too for writing/work making this room perfect for both business and leisure travels alike.
Breakfast is buffet-style and hosted here every morning. It is, of course, complimentary. The dishes are mainly Western breakfast items (bread, omelette, sausages, etc.) with a few local delicacies like nasi lemak. I personally thought the breakfast was pretty mediocre, but I did particularly enjoy their freshly made blueberry yogurt smoothies.
Apart from regular lunch and dinner services, afternoon tea is also available on weekends from 3:00PM to 6:00PM.
Man Tao Bar
Unfortunately, I was a little under the weather my entire time in Malaysia hence I spent most of the days in my room catching up on Netflix. From photos I’d seen online, the sweeping views of Kuala Lumur’s skyline here are absolutely astonishing. Not to mention, the drinks are too pretty to drink and on Thrusday nights, ladies drink for free! Well, selected cocktails only, but ya bet I’ll be back to experience Man Tao Bar!
Rooftop Infinity Pool
The hotel’s rooftop infinity pool is actually connected with Man Tao Bar. If the Malaysian heat is getting to you, cool down with a swim here and watch the sun set with a drink in hand.
