Hotel Review – Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur
The nice folks over at Prince Hotel invited Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers to experience a weekend at their establishment so over went Sarah, Erica and myself. Upon checking in, we were informed that our key cards allows us to access the private carpark for hotel guests! Good start!
We were given two (2) Grand Deluxe rooms with added Premier Executive Room privileges! Cool! Click the links to find out more about the respective rooms and their features.
Let’s see what happened…
Strategic location - Prince Hotel is a stone's throw away from Pavilion, Bukit Bintang and very near KLCC.
The lobby - check out the cool looking chandelier!
So much luggage? Eh hello! We're only staying for a night ok?
We stayed in the Grand Deluxe room which was very spacious at 48 square meters and loaded with everything you could want. Ironing board and iron, bathrobe, to a LCD TV and a fully stocked desk!
Check out the view!
Girls doing what they love doing in the bathroom. Sigh... Didn't help that the hotel provided some really plush bathrobes. It just made them spend more time in the bathroom! Come on girls! Let's go for the evening pre-dinner cocktail already!
The bathroom is fully stocked! Trust me when I say you do not have to bring any toiletries along.
I finally managed to drag them over to the Premier Executive Lounge which offers complimentary evening cocktail drinks and appetizers from 6.00pm to 8.00pm to guests who stay in the Premier Executive (and above) rooms.
Yes any drink you want! Beer, liquor, fruit juices. Great way to start the night!
Then it was down to Tai Zi Heen which is the hotel's Chinese restaurant.
It's not one of those huge Chinese restaurants. It's nice and cosy but I'd suggest you book a table or one of their private rooms in advance.
I snuck into one of the private rooms to shoot the table setting. Perfect for a small family dinner!
Red and white wines to go with our dinner!
This was interesting! The waiter brought over the teapot with a dried flower inside. You expect us to drink a dried flower? He then proceeded to pour hot water inside and the flower began to 'bloom' thus making our tea to go with the meal!
A whole duck? You must be kidding!
Good thing the captain cut it for us and turned it into...
Peking duck!!! Good stuff!!! Traditional Peking Duck with Condiments - RM 108++
Double-boiled Chinese Herbal Soup - RM 22++ a very very healthy soup before the main dishes arrived!
Crispy Soft Shell Crab tossed with Buttered Oats, Garlic, Curry Leaves and Chilli - RM 32++ What can I say? I loved this one! Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. What an awesome dish!
Oven-Baked Black Cod Fillet with Butter and Parmesan Cheese Crust - RM 58++ cheese in a Chinese restaurant? Are you kidding? Yes seriously cheese. And it went beautifully with the cod fish. This is my choice for the best dish of the night! Needless to say, there wasn't a morsel left on this plate after we were done with it.
Ying Yang Prawns - Crispy Prawns tossed with Asian Dressing and Garlic Pepper Sauce - RM 26++ this was pretty good too! Big juicy prawns coated in tasty sauces! I especially like the garlic pepper sauce!
Stir-Fried Hong Kong Kailan with Garlic RM 28++ (S), RM 42++ (M), RM 56++ (L) yes there must always be at least one vege dish. The kailan leafs were fresh while the stalks crispy!
Fried Rice with Seafood, Abalone Sauce and XO sauce RM 32++ (S), RM 48++ (M), RM 64++ (L) this was brimming with seafood! Definitely not your average fried rice!
Guiling Gao. Erica says it's very good for the skin and since she has almost flawless complexion I'll take her word for it.
Jelly with Lemon Sorbet - sour and nice!
Chilled Mango Puree with Ice Cream, Sago and Pomelo - RM 15++ I liked this one! Creamy, sour and sweet all in a single bite!
After dinner it was over to Zouk Club KL which was only a 5 minute drive away. There’s what happened there – CLICK HERE.
The morning after we dragged ourselves out of the comfy beds down for the buffet breakfast at Eccucino which was already bustling at 9.00am
Check out those dark circles kakaka!
Loading up on juices to detox!
Wearing sunnies to hide the eye bags! Lol
The chef will cook the eggs whichever style you want using the ingredients you choose! The array of food available was amazing! From Western to local and even Japanese food! So hard to choose so I had one of everything!
There was a good selection of breads and pastries which I happily combined with the proteins - eggs, beef bacon, sausages, chicken curry, cold cuts, etc. etc.
The Mandara Spa where your worries will be massaged away. Sadly we didn't have time to try it out.
The fully equipped gym which has an amazing view of the surroundings
But we did have time for a quick dip in the pool. And in case you were wondering - no Erica didn't go in with her sunnies on.
In conclusion, our stay was a bit too short to experience everything Prince Hotel had to offer nevertheless we had an enjoyable time there. If you’re from out of KL and are looking for a nice place to stay then Prince Hotel’s location is extremely convenient if you have business (or intend to shop) in KL city. If you live in the Klang Valley, a weekend stay at Prince Hotel with a visit to the Mandara Spa would be a romantic treat for your and your loved one. With good food and lots of amenities, what more could you ask for?
