The Seri Pacific Hotel Kuala Lumpur was our home away from home during our 4-night stay in the Malaysian capital. Spoiler—it was an excellent stay!
We checked in after midnight after a late flight from Bali, but everything went perfectly smooth upon our arrival. The staff was attentive despite the late hour and we were quickly and efficiently given our room keys, relevant information, and then personally shown to our rooms (yes, plural).
Our Club Room was located on the 27th floor and consisted of a large bedroom with a bathtub and rain shower. We also had the adjoining room to ourselves, which was a living/dining room and another full bath. Needless to say, we had plenty of space!
We also had plenty of food during our stay. Thanks to a welcoming staff, we were greeted by a fruit basket upon arrival. Also, halfway during our stay we were sent another fruit basket! It was amazing, but since we were already eating multiple meals a day at the hotel, we just couldn’t keep up with how much food we had. What a problem, right?
Since we were in a Club Room we had full access to the Club Lounge located on the 30th floor. Here, guests with club access can enjoy breakfast each day, as well as cocktails and finger foods each evening. We found it a remarkable way to start and end each of our days during our stay. Also, the food was great! It was all buffet-style and ranged from potato wedges to congee. Some of my favorite items were the mango lassi, BBQ lamb, and fried crab cakes. So good.
In addition to the food at the Club Lounge we were also able to try out breakfast and lunch at the Zende Restaurant and the Saturday Night Buffet at Kofuku Japanese Restaurant (both located within the hotel). Breakfast at Zende Restaurant was very similar to the Club Lounge except there were more options (and a lot more people!). Lunch at the same restaurant has a buffet option, but we opted to go a la carte. My Old Timer Burger was fantastic.
Everything at the Kofuku Japanese Restaurant was great, but we really enjoyed the teppanyaki option to get selected meats and veggies grilled up and brought to your table. I will forever be craving the buttery sauce they use! If we had more time and unlimited stomach space I’m sure I would have tried a lot more that they had to offer, like their expansive Shabu Shabu display. Alas, I only ended up eating lots of sashimi, sushi, main courses, and teppanyaki. That’s all. :D
Overall, we had a wonderful stay at the Seri Pacific Hotel and wouldn’t hesitate in staying there again. It’s a great hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. Also, it’s in a good location for exploring the city (plenty of public transportation around).
