Lizzie asks…

any decent cheap hotel in KL bukit bintang to recommend?

i’ll be going up to KL for shopping this december and have not yet found a suitable hotel to stay. preferably one near to the monorail / LRT. and also any nice food, place for shopping bags, clothes and wallets to recommend? shopping areas with brands like roxy, billabong. i heard sungei wang has alot of shopping for teens.

KL Boy’s answers:

Check out Royale Bintang Hotel, Sungei Wang is good for heaps of things, klcc is close by as well. Plaza Low Yatt is excellent for mobile, computers and gadgets shopping. Asiarooms.com for room rates.

Robert asks…

Transportation Information in KL required?

Hello

I need some advice concerning transportation in Kuala Lumpur. I would need to travel from Shangri-la Hotel to the following places:

1.Bukit Buntang – Sungei Wang & other shopping malls around
2.Petronas Twin Towers
3.ChinaTown/ Petaling Street
4.Sunway Pyramid
5.Mid Valley
6.National Zoo & Aquarium
7.Spring Shopping Mall
8.Mines Wonderland
9.Eye on Malaysia

I don’t want to travel by taxi all the times as it can be very costly.

Can anyone suggest how to go to each of the above places by train/monorail/bus or any cheaper transport means? Please give train or bus number.
I also need the location of places 7-9 above.

Thank you in advance for your replies.
The Spring Shooping mall is also called warisan square kota kinabalu sabah, i think.

KL Boy’s answers:

1 – Use Monorail, from Bukit Nanas St. To Bukit Bintang St. There are a number of shopping complexes there i.e. The interconnected Sg Wang Plaza & Bukit Bintang, Lot 10, StarHill Gallery, Pavilion and Berjaya Times Square.

2 – It’s a walking distance. Let say that you are facing your hotel, walk by the road on your let hand side until you arrive at a junction. Turn left. By right, there will be a number of pubs on your left. You’ll get to KLCC if you walk straight along the road.

3 – Use RapidKL, from Dang Wangi St to Masjid Jamek St, then u have to walk (pls refer to others for alternatives, but i think there’s no easier way)

4. Use either monorail or RapidKL, from Bukit Nanas / Dang Wangi St. To KL Sentral, then take a bus to USJ or KTM commuter will take u straight to Subang. Most buses there will take you to Sunway.

5. Go to KL Sentral first (refer no.4), there, take KTM Komuter to Mid Valley St.

6. They’re both in different places, National Zoo is in Hulu Kelang (From KLSentral, take Ampang-Kelana Jaya Line to Tmn Melati St, then take a bus to Zoo Negara). The Aquaria is in KLCC area. You can go there by taxi, or if u insist, you can walk there)

7. ??? I dunno what/where it is

8. KL Sentral first, then use KTM Komuter to go to Serdang St. From there, u can choose whether u want to walk or take a taxi. Its a walking distance, but the road is busyyyyyy..

9. This one I’m not so sure…Titiwangsa Station, maybe? Then you have to take a cab from there I guess.

For bus no, here:

Edit:
Ohhh… In that case, u need to go KLIA first, and book ur flight ticket to KK (its way way more expensive than to go by cab..lol!)

Michael asks…

are there any hotels in Bandar Utama?

the bus my friends and i are taking stops at Bandar Utama. the problem we just realised is, it’s quite far to other parts of KL like Bukit Bintang etc (if we were to book a hotel in that area). so my question is, are there any hotels in Bandar Utama? what about shopping places or LRT/trains/monorail accessible from Bandar Utama?

KL Boy’s answers:

One World Hotel is at One Utama itself. Nearby, you have the Royale Bintang Damansara at The Curve which is less than 5 minutes drive away.

Mandy asks…

Looking for 3-4 star hotels in Kuala lumpur very close to Fitness First gyms???

need to find VERY CLEAN, CHILD FRIENDLY, NON-SMOKING ROOMS, very close to shopping areas (or near monorail so we can get to FF easily) & great good stalls/restaurants etc

are there any other gyms in KL with swimming pools? I don’t think any of the FF in KL have pools.

Thanks

KL Boy’s answers:

Armada Hotel is one (it is a 4 star hotel). There is a Fitness First outlet in Menara Axis, just a shout away. You can get there via Putra LRT/Rapid KL (Asia Jaya station).

Its the best location that fits your requirement/description.

Hope this helps and good luck!

KL Boy’s answers:

A singaporean huh?
Primary (middle school)
International:
Sri Garden
Sri Cempaka
Sri KDU
Alice Smith School
Sri KL note:-all the Sris are either internationals, private or semi private
High school:
public schools are the best, their discipline is strict and most students score their best. Private school kids are pampered and most turn out to be drug junkies. Trust me, you don’t want your daughters to give hand-jobs for crack.
Try Bukit Nenas, or any St. Convent all girls, get the school list from Education Ministry. Or Google search but limit your search to Malaysian pages only. Www.google.com.my
International schools are expensive, cost bout RM 3000++ per month, public school cost bout RM 100 A YEAR.
Your 20 yr old kid:
Put her in good non-government college/university.
IT-Multimedia University, Cyberjaya
IT/Management-HELP Institute, Taylor’s College (spoil brats) Sunway College (brace yourself for new male faces in your house every week), the list goes on. UM, UPM, etc.
