The KL Journal Hotel could possibly be one of travellers’ vivid memories from their adventures in Kuala Lumpur. The one that travellers would jot down in their own personal journals so as not to forget its fascinating details that wowed them from the moment they stepped into the hotel. For Malaysians, it might take them down memory lane, and as for international travellers, The KL Journal could be a destination in its own right.
Developed by Beremi Holdings, The KL Journal appeals to vibrant personalities who seek friendlier and more personalised service setting. This inviting property features Malaysia’s mid-century modernist style of architecture, combined with the right amount of quirky elements like decorative wrought iron grilles typically seen in Southeast Asia, rigged lighting, metal and weathered wooden surfaces, as well as classic KL iconography to further create a welcoming feel.
In the rooms, guests are bound to find every modern amenity available to keep them living in luxury and comfort: ergonomic mattresses, high thread-count sheets, great plugged-in connectivity for all mobile devices, wireless Bluetooth connection to a high quality audio stereo system, 40-inch flat screen TVs with HDMI cables and USB charge ports, and of course, a power shower for guests to rinse away the stresses of the day. All 112 spacious rooms are also outfitted with inspiring black and white portraits of KL street life and architecture.
The hotel’s other highlight includes The Bounty, a bistro-inspired eatery with a classic menu and an open pastry studio. The food here is designed on the premise of offering unfussy yet flavourful menu at a price that is accessible to the average diners. The talented Logan Lepez helms the kitchen, and he believes that good food from fresh ingredients always trumps complicated masterpieces.
The KL Journal, moreover, aims to be a proponent of local and contemporary art. Works of talented local artists (currently being Che’ Ahmad Azhar, a renowned local street photographer) gracefully adorn the stylish space on ‘Workers Union’ floor, which is a well thought out work and social space equipped with high speed Wi-Fi, teleconferencing and audio visual facilities, suitable for creative meetings and intimate events. Speaking of well thought out, even the unique rooftop saltwater swimming pool receives high attention to detail, which guests should plunge into at least once.
The KL Journal offers the balance of individual style, clever design, comfort, convenience and value. Since the hotel is developed by a group of travellers themselves, it comes up with its own insider guide replete with handpicked suggestions in an effort to help guests discover KL in a more authentic way.
Modern day travellers who want to stay in a place that possesses strong character without compromising the accommodation standards they are accustomed to.
