Avenue J Hotel Kuala Lumpur: Smart & Stylish
During my little FAM trip with AboutKL, I discovered a pretty interesting little hotel which surprising I seemed to overlooked until now..…
Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, it stood grandly there very much like something I would find in England or Europe, right at the corner just by the bank of the Gombak River, neighbouring the Malaysian Bar Council. And right behind Central Market, and yes, it is so easily accessible via Central Market as well as all you have to do is walk to the back of Central Market and you will see the Annex building. Turn left and then turn right and the Avenue J Hotel just right there!
The hotel has a rusticated façade with exaggerated keystones, which screams simple elegance of the entire building. Within it is a stunning 72-rooms boutique hotel, that combines modern comfort and quiet luxury with a hint of wanderlust. The hotel just opened in September 2016.
Avenue J Hotel is downright convenient and close to so many famous landmarks in Kuala Lumpur. It is about five minutes walk to the Masjid Jamek LRT station, with access to both RapidKL’s Kelana Jaya Line and Ampang/Sri Petaling Lines, if you cross the road and walk towards the Old Market Square, or you can walk to Central Market in less then 5 minutes and the Pasar Seni LRT on RapidKL’s Kelana Jaya Line in less 10 minutes. All main buses to everywhere else in the entire Klang Valley is also within walking distance. Petaling Street/ Chinatown is just 10 minutes walk, and so is the KL City Gallery, KL Library, Dataran Merdeka, Sultan Abdul Samad building and the Panggung Bandaraya where they showcases the MUD The Musical. You certainly cannot find a better hotel then this around here especially if you are keen to know more about the heritage places in Kuala Lumpur.
I was fortunate to have been given a corner room on the second floor. It was clean and the ambiance was one of modern minimalistic.
It came with the most comfortable Queen bed with generous plump pillows and a lovely view from my window… it is certainly perfect for any solo travellers or couples who are looking for comfort in recharging quietly after a long day of adventure. I definitely found it hard to get out from my bed when I was suppose to because it was so comfy.
The bathroom may be a little small but the warm showers work like a mini-massage, washing all your tensions away and leaving you fresher than ever.
The air conditioned non smoking rooms comes with television LCD/plasma screen, complimentary WiFi, coffee/tea making facilities, hairdryer, complimentary toiletries and a safe .
Avenue J Hotel serves a simple continental breakfast in the living room, which is also available to non guests, consisting of bread and condiments, pastries, cornflakes with milk and juice, pretty filling unless you are looking for more, but if you are, have no fear, there is the 7 Eleven just across the road, about 3 minutes walk at the Loke Yew building or turn right from the entrance of the hotel a well stocked NewsPlus convenience store.
Right across the road you can find the Kafe Old Market Square, a rich in heritage kopitiam/coffee shop serving great local dishes for breakfast as well.
