“It's OK”
Reviewed February 3, 2010

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days, chosen on buffet breakfast and a pool in hotel+ proximity to centre and shops. Rooms were OK, rather small though with an extra bed that we requested and probably the darkest I've ever been. They did try with contemp decor, but would benefit with few stronger light globes. The hotel is convinently located - 5 mins to BB, Times Square and 10 to China Town. Taxi ramp is just outside the hotel and each driver is also a 'tour guide' and can take you places for say 30RM/hr. Very handy if you don't have time for hop on/hop off bus (can be very timely due to traffic in KL). The breakfast was great, there was live music each evening in one bar. Pool is tiny but we did go only for one hour max each day in between tours and shopping and that was quite relaxing and refreshing! Selection of TV channels was not all that great, but you'll probably spend very little time in front of it. Yes it is on a main street but higher floors don't seem to suffer that much.

We stayed at the hotel for three nights and although the hotel is close to both Bukit Bintang Walk and Jalan Alor (Hawker Stalls) that's probably where it ended. The hotel is on a very busy road, and in front seems to be a pick up and drop off point for huge coaches/buses.The staff were friendly enough, but dont expect them to pick up the phone any time soon when you call from the room. The room itself was pleasant, but then you go into the bathroom. It seems like the room has been fully renovated, but they forgot to do the bathrooms. We had to get the repair guy up to our room a couple of times, firstly the toilet wouldn't flush (YUK) and secondly we had no television reception. When we booked the room we got the breakfast included, but this turned out to be no bonus. The food was basic and the same fare all three mornings. We didn't go for a swim in the pool, but it looked like it could fit only about 5 people anyway. Overall, this is a pretty basic hotel that l would not class 4 star. It's close to plenty of the shopping malls and food outlets.

Swiss Garden hotel was very impressive. A classy, comfortable and clean room was provided for around $100AUD per night inclusive of breakfast. This is a little more than we would usually pay but it was worth the extra. Car parking was included so that made life a bit easier. Breakfast offered both Asia and Western selection and there was a huge range of pastries, cooked foods, fruit and cereal. We enjoyed the Phillipino singer in the downstairs bar on our first night, what a great voice she had. The room included everything you could possibly need including slippers, robe and even a ironing board. The hotel has a pool and gym but in the two nights we stayed, we did not have time to make use of them. If you are looking for a quiet retreat, icy airconditioning this hotel is the perfect location.

We had a 3 night stay at the Swiss Garden on our way to Vietnam in early January. The hotel was good for the price. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Our view from the room was a construction site directly behind the building but it was not a problem because we didn't spend much time in our room. The hotel has a booking desk for tours in the foyer but its worth trying the convenience store across the road which also has a tour desk if you are thinking of seeing the sites with a guide. We did a trip to Batu Cavs and an Elephant camp just out of KL. The caves were interesting but the Elephant camp was very crowded and a little depressing. Our driver took us to see some monkeys on the way home near a golf course. They were the friendliest monkeys in Asia, not aggressive at all and great for the kids. They were happy to accept any food and particularly enjoyed the Pascals Columbines I bought from Australia.
The restarrants at the Swiss Garden all seemed great. We had the smorgasbord on the first floor one night which was extenive and top notch at a good price. Breakfasts which are usually included in the room price were also fantastic.
The hotel is close to many of the main shopping areas. Time Square is only 5 minutes walk and has many great shops and an amusement park in the shopping centre. Make sure you ride the roller coaster. My 50yo body managed to cope with it better than the kids. The Chinstown town makets are 10 to 15mins walk but the is also a monorail station right outside Time Square that connects with the light and heavy rail lines which will take you just about anywhere in the city. The main bus station in 5 minutes walk as well

We stayed for just one night at the Swiss Garden after a flight was changed and we had to spend a night in Kuala Lumpur enroute to Chiang Mai. We arrived very early in the morning after the late night flight from Australia and were a little disappointed that we couldn't have our room until after 1pm. This was fair enough as they were busy but it's so nice to arrive tired and be pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, the bed hard and as we were at the back of the hotel the view was not very nice. The hotel is just across a busy road from the end of Bukit Bintang and Jalan Alor so it's in quite a handy spot. The concierge was helpful advising the best way to get to the airport very early the next morning. We have stayed at 3 other hotels in Bukit Bintang and I would prefer to stay at them another time.
