The Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre is located in one of the most strategic spots in the city. It’s right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s shopping, dining and business hub … the popular spots are within easy and convenient connection as there’s a sky-bridge linking the hotel to the surrounding go-to areas. Pullman KLCC comprises two distinctive towers housing 450 rooms and suites as well as 157 residences.
We had a chance to check-out the hotel in a recent staycation. To beat the busy traffic, it’s easy to take the MRT and get off at the Pavilion-Bukit Bintang station and from, it’s just a short walk through Pavilion Shopping Mall to the sky-bridge connected to the Pullman KLCC! Stepping into the welcoming reception, we were whisked up to Level 4 for a personalized check-in at the Executive Club Lounge. Checking-in was a breeze by the super-efficient friendly reception personnel and we were given the keycards to our Premium Grand Deluxe Room.
Swiping our access card, we were immediately taken with the lavish corner Premium Grand Deluxe Room that was our abode for the following two nights. The spacious upper-floor 581 sq ft room came with panorama windows giving us bright natural light and a gorgeous sweeping view of the glittering city skyline. With a deco theme of calming shades of grey and violet, we loved the futuristic fittings and ambience of the room.

Besides the usual amenities in the room, we were delighted with these…
2 TVs! 49-inch and 55-inch LED TVs with a wide variety of channels
High speed wifi
Minibar with Nespresso coffee machine
Sexy curved wide work desk
Such a pretty & delicious Welcome Treat!
Guests staying on the Executive Club Floors have access to the hotel’s exclusive Executive Club Lounge where daily breakfast, afternoon tea, all-day refreshments as well as premium wine and cocktails are served. Besides these, 3 pieces of complimentary laundry is provided daily, 1 hour free use of meeting room facilities and late check-out at 4pm (subject to availability) are offered. There’s also 24/7 room service available to ensure no guest ever goes hungry, at any time.
Executive Club Lounge
Once we have unpacked and settled in to our very comfortable room, we went to check out the Executive Club Lounge. We loved the upscale spacious lounge with its stylish contemporary edge, softened with lovely local traditional art pieces. Service and hospitality was faultless. We found ourselves spending quite a lot of time enjoying this exclusive space during our stay – for breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails.
We enjoyed the exclusive breakfast here which was a combination of buffet and a la carte orders. We had hot cooked-to-order items like noodles, roti jala and piping hot English breakfast platter! In the evenings, we chilled out with handmade signature canapes, speciality coffee & tea, premium wines, craft beers and cocktails.
On the wellness floor of the hotel is one of our favourite spas. Vibes Spa is a welcome sanctuary to experience an array of therapeutic remedies carefully selected to suit a high-paced lifestyle. We had the 90-minute Vibes Signature Massage and it’s one of the best sessions we’ve ever had. The therapists were so spot-on with their firm rhythmic strokes that peeled away our muscle fatigue in the most relaxing manner.
On the same level, the Fit Lounge’s cardio and weight machines face the tropical garden – just the perfect landscape for an invigorating workout.
The outdoor pool is open from sunrise until after sunset… use it as you please, whether to wake up or to wind down after a busy day. In fact, the Terrace Poolside Bar & Grill will have you lounging by the pool endless hours with cold beers, house cocktails, fresh juices and if you are hungry, there’s a tasty selection of Western and Asian snacks, sandwiches, salads, main courses and desserts.
The 3 main F&B outlets in Pullman KLCC are Sedap Restaurant, Red Chinese Cuisine, Blu Bar & Cigars and Enju Japanese Restaurant. Enju will be covered in a separate review – look out for it soon!

This is the hotel’s all-day dining and home to buffets at breakfast and dinner. The breakfast spread is fabulous and always a busy time for the restaurant. Besides the usual western and local dishes, there are also some live cooking stations set up.
Sedap Restaurant is very popular with guests!
Egg Station and Noodles Station are pretty regular, as in most hotels but what stands out at Pullman KLCC are their Kaya Toast and Roti Canai stalls. The kaya toasts are made from thick fluffy “roti Bengali” toasted-on-the-spot on a charcoal stove! Besides having these smothered with butter and kata, we also ordered some thick toasts which we dunked into the delicious curries from the Indian counter! The chef at the Roti Canai may seem a bit dour but he made some really good roti!
He makes good rotis!
RED Chinese Cuisine
RED Chinese Cuisine is one of the most stunning restaurants in town. As its name suggests, the red theme runs through the restaurant and it’s presented in a modern, stylish and innovative concept. Do read my earlier posts on RED Chinese Cuisine here and here.
The restaurant specialises in modern Chinese cuisine featuring live seafood, dim sum, traditional favourites curated by a team of talented and dynamic team. During this staycation, we indulged on some of the RED’s signature dim sum and special dishes. Dim Sum Brunch is available every weekend as well as on à la carte orders for daily lunch and dinner.
Pullman KLCC is a great choice if you are looking to stay in Kuala Lumpur city centre, close to every shopping, dining and commercial convenience. Whether it’s for business or leisure, the hotel’s service and hospitality are warm and welcoming. And if you choose to spend more time in their elegantly-appointed rooms and enjoy the facilities, there are good dining options in the in-house restaurants.
