Have you heard? There’s a new hotel in town. Enter INNSiDE by Meliá Kuala Lumpur Cheras, a laidback yet slick urban gem that is well on its way to make waves in the Kuala Lumpur hotel scene.

A quick step into the lobby opens up to a living-room inspired space embellished with plush couches and quirky trinkets. No overt lavishness. No stark vibe. Instead, an informal flair fills the air as young staff in casual uniforms move fluidly within the spaces, ever-so-ready to assist guests where needed.

Comfortable rooms for resting

The hotel’s 238 rooms and suites follow the brand’s design ethos: practical chic accentuated by pops of colour and local artworks that vary in every room category. All of them come with a king-sized plushy bed along with ample conveniences that make for a comfortable stay such as sensibly-positioned power sockets, a flat screen television, a desk lamp with wireless charging, and a wide desk that is big enough to accommodate up to two laptops simultaneously.

On top of these, the rooms are complete with fairly sizeable walk-in showers featuring fragrant white tea body wash and shampoo-conditioner in eco-conscious, wall-mounted dispensers. The rain shower proves to be strong too, offering much-needed revival after a long tiring day. But if we were to name our most favourite thing in the room, hands down they have to be the towels — they are large, super soft, and ultra-absorbent.

There are six room categories at the INNSiDE by Meliá Kuala Lumpur Cheras. We recommend upgrading to one of the hotel’s Townhouse or Townhouse Xtra suites for a more indulging experience, which afford guests separate living/dining and sleeping areas, a bathroom with freestanding deep soaking tub overlooking the city, a Nespresso coffee maker, video-game consoles and a free premium mini bar.

A buffet is available for breakfast, and a la carte options for lunch and dinner. The menu highlights specialties like Italian Lobster Aglio Olio and succulent lamb shanks, along with healthy food choices such as Smoked Salmon Benedict and Chicken Pesto.

The hotel boasts a 24-hour gym and an infinity pool with an expansive sun-lounging, ensuring that guests can keep up with their fitness routines, or relax after pounding the city streets. For business travellers and digital nomads, the tastefully-designed The Big Ideas Space and The Recording Studio on the 5th floor boast cosy spaces to work or chat. 

Exploring Cheras and beyond

Being directly connected to the EkoCheras Mall means hotel guests may enjoy shopping and more dining options at their convenience. And if that were not enough, there is a popular Taman Connaught Night Market nearby happening every Wednesday from 5:00 p.m. till late.

Taxis and e-hailing services are widely available in the neighbourhood, but traffic congestion during the peak hours is a common problem. So forget driving and instead, make use of the MRT Kajang line to explore the surrounding areas and the rest of Klang Valley. The Taman Mutiara MRT Station is a mere two-minute walk from the hotel.

Room rates start from RM238+ per room per night inclusive of breakfast for two from now until May 2023, while the meeting room package is RM190+ per person per day. The package includes audio visual equipment, hi-speed WiFi, parking, coffee break and a private cocktail reception.
