KSL Hotel & Resort is a 4-star hotel that is connected directly to KSL shopping mall. We decided to give it a try during one of our visits to KSL shopping mall.
As usual, we like to compare prices before deciding on a platform to book our room. Here’s something you want to know:
- There is no direct online booking on KSL Hotel & Resort website unless you call the hotel. Hence, we can’t find any price for comparison.
- If you book from Agoda.com, the Deluxe King room costs only S$85 with free cancellation.
- The same Deluxe King room costs S$93 on Expedia.com.
- On booking.com, you can book the same room for S$96.
In this sense, it makes it clear that Agoda.com has the most affordable price for the room category that we are intending to book.
If you need breakfast, you can add approximately S$20 per pax per day for the breakfast buffet. We booked our room with breakfast for S$117.
KSL Hotel & Resort is located around 10 minutes drive away from JB Sentral. You can take a Grabcar from City Square for around RM 16.
Otherwise, you can take a bus (BET2) from the bus interchange at JB Sentral. The ride takes around 20 minutes.
The hotel is directly connected to the shopping mall. Once you arrive at the mall, you can follow the signs to the hotel.
KSL Hotel & Resort is usually very crowded on the weekend. If you arrive at the check-in time, please expect to queue for a short period of time. We must compliment that the hotel staffs are generally fast in handling the check-in process.
We were told that there are two towers in the hotel. Hence, there are two different lifts to take to the rooms.
If you are booking more than 1 room, you may want to call in advance to ensure that you get the rooms in the same tower.
The Deluxe King Room
The Deluxe King Room offers 26 sqm space to its patrons. Our room is located on the 23rd floor of Tower 1. The room comes with complimentary WIFI access. If you want to stay longer, you can also pay RM 70 at the front desk for late check-out until 6.00 PM.
The room looked really dull due to the choice of furniture colors. While we prefer to have a brighter configuration, the room was great for sleep.
And yes, we had a boaster on our bed!
We had two complimentary mineral water, some tea bags
It was quite easy to setup my Android box to the TV. We suggest to bring your own entertainment to keep yourself busy. The channels were very limited in selection.
The bathroom was looked rather rundown as compared to the bedroom. We thought that it was decent for a short stay. There was no bathtub in the Deluxe King. You may need to book a room of higher category for the bathtub.
However, the bathroom was rather dull. I hope they could have bright lights to compensate the dark tiles.
KSL Hotel & Resort is a very convenient hotel to stay if you are going to KSL shopping mall to top up your groceries. The property has very affordable rooms for a quick night stay.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a place to celebrate some special nights, you might want to take a look at places like Doubletree Hilton Hotel or Amari Johor Bahru for newer and better rooms!
