Concorde Hotel - Kuala Lumpur - near The Beech Club

Recommended Posts

Hi, anyone visiting Kuala Lumpur should check out this hotel. Stayed here in Dec 2012 and really

had a great stay. Very modern luxury rooms with good showers and bath. Tea and coffee making

facilities,free wifi/internet.Room safe,mini bar fridge,slippers,bathrobe,hair dryer,etc.

 

www.concordehotelresorts.com  - I booked through www.booking.com as was cheaper.

 

The hotel has four restaurants and bars and has a hard rock cafe attached which is great.

 

Breakfast was very good although never ate there in the evening. I would think it would be good

as really could not fault this hotel. There is a gym and outside swimming pool.

 

If you book  for a minimum of two nights in a Premier room it also includes complimentary

one way limo transfer from KL International Airport. It also includes private check in.

 

Girl friendly.

 

The other very good point is that its literally a 5 minute walk to the Beach Club with all of those

different nationalities of free lancers. (Happy days) www.beachclubcafe.com

 

The Petronas Twin Towers are about a 15 minute walk away and the KL Tower from memory was

about 25 minutes up a steep hill.Both well worth a visit.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone as its ideal for the freelancers and tourism.

 

Hope it helps some of you decide where you want to stay in Kuala Lumpur.

That's a pic of the old Beach Club - it relocated a while back (only around 50-60m down the same road)  ... looks a bit different now though ...

You forgot to mention that the Hard Rock Cafe is downstairs in same building where you can meet both good girls and working girls.

 

Many hotels in the area of all price ranges as well as full service spa and massage places.

I stayed there about 5 years ago and was a great place. You can catch a cab up the street a little ways to get on the hi-speed rail to airport. KL is not a cheap stay and was a little pricy drinking in BC as well. Very clean city; probably the cleanest city in Asia that I have been to.

muffhunter: IMHO Singapore is cleanest city in Asia. Johor Baru Malaysia right across the causeway is filthy, L much nicer than JB biut not as pristine as Singapore. 

 

I stayed at Concorde almost 20 years ago. I prefer Frasier Place nowadays as you get an apartment and location is even better than Concorde.

I stayed in the Concord a few years ago. Very nice. I felt a little strange walking through the lobby in shorts and a T shirt as everyone else was in a suit and tie. Maybe it was a large business meeting or something.

There are always a lot of business travelers at the Concorde but I always thought they were envious of me in my casual clothes going out to play while they worked :-)

 

I definitely recommend the hotel and if you can tolerate the persistent badgering from incredibly gorgeous girls and the outrageous drink prices, the Beach Club.

Quite a dated place….but the big story here is that 5 star hotel rates in KL are probably the most reasonable in Asia….the Mandarin Oriental is mind-blowing as is the Ritz Carlton (more discreet and boutiquey). Even The Tenaissance is a fantastic property…very close to Concorde.

Price discussions are killing my mood and my illusions.

Sorry Sir but I beg to differ about The Beach Club. I was in there 3 weeks ago and it should havebeen called The Boiler Room. It was late though but I couldn,t find a girl under 25 and most of the others were dogs. vERY DISSAPOINTING. Maybe timing had a bit to to do with it. Most overated bar ever. The Concorde looks ok though. Cheers

I was in the Beach Club twice, just before it moved to the new location and I found that the girls there were some of the most attractive I have seen in a bar of this type.  They were mostly Vietnamese and Filipino.

 

I was there on a Friday and Saturday night and the ratio was about 3 girls to every guy.  As a result, the girls were VERY pushy asking for drinks and trying to close the deal.  The girl prices were pretty high though I did not bargain as I was scheduled to meet someone later at the Hard Rock.

 

Drink prices were outrageous but I think that is just a result of the taxes in this Islamic country.  If I remember correctly, prices were similar at the Hard Rock.

 

Bottom line, if you are in downtown KL, it is worth your time to visit the Beach Club.  If it is not to your liking, the Hard Rock at the Concorde hotel is a short walk and there are freelancers there.

If Beach Club was in a real mongering country nobody would rave about it. It is ONLY because it is right there in the Bule area of KL that it exists at all.  Some hotties but ST attitudes and high prices are big bummers.  If you must work in KL then it is an option but the traveler is better advised to save his cash and seed for the real hunting grounds in nearby countries.

I wouldn't rave about the Beach Club either.  As I stated, drink and girl prices are very high for SE Asia and the girls are incredibly pushy for drinks and ST.  But, I did find a lot of the girls attractive (especially the Vietnamese) so if you are in downtown KL, it is a worthwhile place to go.

 

Would I recommend KL as a mongering destination, probably not.  But it is an impressive city worthy of a tourist visit and you can have a little P4P fun while you are there if you choose to.  I was there as the Air Asia flights in and out of KL are incredibly inexpensive and I was traveling between Bangkok and Bali.  Since I had never seen the city before, I decided to stop for a couple of days.

HD: agreed it is a nice city, and as AA hub overnighters are not uncommon. Could be much worse.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
