This Airbnb apartment in Kuala Lumpur was booked using my funds and is not a sponsored post. I am writing my own opinion of my stay at the Face Suites Airbnb in KL because I feel I have to bring you great travel bargains as I experience them. So, here I am giving you my latest accommodation review. Enjoy.
Finding the right accommodation when travelling with my family requires careful planning and thorough research. If I’m travelling alone, I don’t nearly go through such an extensive search, but when it comes to my flesh and blood, I tend to be more pedantic by reading guest reviews, scouting the potential location and of course, find that bargain.
Before my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur, it’s precisely what I did by looking through hotel search engines like Booking.com and TripAdvisor, and onwards to the Airbnb’s main website, which has become a big favourite of mine when finding suitable family accommodation.
On this occasion, Airbnb was again the clear standout in all facets, from pricing, the two-bedroom apartment and the central Airbnb location that made for the ideal apartment to rent in KL.
The Face Suites Airbnb apartment I found for this trip came with a full-scale kitchen, mini-laundry, a living area, two bathrooms, two bedrooms and it was all in the confines of a modern building close to the action in the city.
To make the situation even better it came at the price of $700 over the nine nights we stayed in KL, that’s about $77 per night. Now that’s a bargain price if I had ever seen one before, in fact, it was daylight robbery in the country of Malaysia.
Accommodation Review – The Face Suites Airbnb Apartment in Kuala Lumpur
Booking the Airbnb Kuala Lumpur Accommodation
Booking the room was a simple process. Firstly, I put in the dates that I would be in Kuala Lumpur on the Airbnb website, and a variety of apartments came up in the search results.
From there, I checked over the options in front of me by scouring through the pictures of various apartments, viewed the layout of the apartment, read the guest reviews and the most significant decisive factor of all, the pricing.
When I felt satisfied that I had found the right apartment, I sent a few messages to the host with a few searching questions, who duly replied in quick time, I clicked the pay now section and confirmed the payment. Simple as that.
The Apartment Building – The Face Suites
The high-rise building where our apartment was situated is called The Face Suites, a combination of living apartments and hotel.
Having the Airbnb apartment included inside the same building as a hotel meant we were able to have access to the facilities of the hotel such as access to the Infinity pool and Skydeck restaurant on the 51st floor. Which also came the stunning views of the city, which included the Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower.
The Airbnb Kuala Lumpur apartment didn’t’ come with room service or daily housekeeping, but for the bargain price we found for the accommodation, that was the least of my concerns.
The Airbnb Apartment we stayed in
The apartment we rented in KL was gorgeous and had everything required for a family stay.
Starting with the living area, the first thing you see upon entering the apartment is the kitchen that has everything required, with a large fridge, stove/oven, ample cupboard space and tucked away is also a laundry/dryer.
The lounge area is on the other side of the kitchen, that has a large family lounge suite, cable television and a large window where you can have a constant peak at the city in front of you.
The two bedrooms within the apartment are separated from one another, which meant an appropriate amount of privacy, which is fantastic for the parents. The kid’s room has a couple of beds with spare mattresses in case extra bedding is needed. They even have their bathroom situated next-door.
The main bedroom was enormous, with a king-size bed, a magnificent private bathroom, a walk-in wardrobe and a second television when you need to watch a movie away from the kids.
I don’t say this lightly, but it’s the kind of apartment you could live in permanently and not only use for a holiday purpose. It’s an apartment that has everything required for a home, and that includes free WIFI.
What’s Nearby to the Apartment Kuala Lumpur
The location was close walking distance to the Kuala Lumpur City-Centre with many restaurants, bars and shopping centres nearby, and not mention the famous Petronas Twin Towers which is the major attraction with in the city and specifically magnificent at night.
We were spoilt for choice with transportation with the closest Monorail station was only five-minute walk the building and could be seen from the apartment window, the subway station was a further five-minute walk down the road from the Monorail station. Google Maps does come in handy in these situations.
If public transport doesn’t work, you can always download the Grab App and hire a driver for a meagre price. Therefore, from your Airbnb Apartment, anything and everything was close by or well within reach.
Final Review of the Face Suites
I could have paid double for this accommodation, and I would have been a happy man.
From the perfect living apartment and the facilities inside The Face Suites high-rise building including the grand Airbnb location, it all tied into together to make it a great stay in this elegant Apartment in Kuala Lumpur of Malaysia.
