Our Sanctuary in KL, Malaysia: Holiday Villa | D Villa Residence

D-Villa Residence or more commonly known around the city as Holiday Villa was our choice of hotel to stay in Kuala Lumpur. The hubby handed me over this task even as he cannot go around the internet looking over feedbacks and all. I gave him a list of a number of good hotels within our budget and that have good feedback from customers. We booked via Agoda.com. Thanks to Dani Salasalan for the reco! I definitely would not have been able to get the same rate I did if I booked straight with the hotel or via another third party booking company. And for that, I love Agoda! 🙂

This is the view from our room. It may just be a itty bitty slice of the Petronas Twin Towers‘s majesty all right. But it looked no less gallant from where we were.

It was only a month ago or so when we booked with Holiday Villa (D-Villa Residence) a one bedroom apartment and for cheap, at that. For $120, we were able to book a 3 day, 2 night hotel stay.  Now, that I think is really value for money. With a little tot in tow, I really wanted a full functioning place. A fully furnished kitchen, receiving area, dining area, a decent bath, safety deposit box and a double door lock. Yes, I can be OC like that. 😉 D Villa Residence has it all.

Of course all those amenities and features would not have meant a thing if they have ill-charactered staff, which they don’t. In fact, I only have good words for their front liner, especially. Ronald, from Day 1 has the most pleasing personality and was very accommodating. From our transport arrangements down to the most trivial of queries. Our stay was fuss free through and through.

There were minor issues like their electrical outlets, which we definitely were not ready for. The housekeeping that was not available to take our calls and request to borrow an outlet adaptor, which we later understood. It was Ramadan and we called in during their fasting time. We respect that. The husband went to leave for the nearest mall (which was just a bus ride away) and buy us some food for breakfast and the adaptor too. We have got gadgets to recharge. So that couldn’t wait till the next day. Then WiFi turned out to be busted during our stay. We did not stay as much in the hotel anyway.
