This new swanky space co-exists harmoniously with its surrounding old KL vibe for a stay that’s filled with character of the locals and their stories.
Frequenters of downtown KL know the charm of the intersection between Jalan Sultan Ismail and just off it, Jalan Kamunting.
It was dying a slow death for a good few years before The Row came about and injected new life into the row of shoplots. Quaint bars, eclectic watering holes and artistic holes-in-the-wall for innovative bites quickly turned heads and attention in its direction again.
Now, a new hotel is about to restore the neighbourhood back to its former glory.
Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur brings with it a slice of luxury, a coat of edginess and a whole lot of cultured living thanks to its dynamic mix of old and new.
At first glance, it’s got all the sleek shiny façade a swanky new hotel needs, housing 184 contemporary guest rooms and serving up a medley of international and local cuisines through 2 restaurants, The Snug and Brasserie 25. But what truly stands it out is its harmonious melding of all the above with the history of its address – it co-exists with the 1940’s shoplots flanking it and its surrounding old KL vibe for a stay that’s filled with character of the locals and their stories.
Slated for launch this very month, the hotel looks incredibly promising, especially when contrasted against the many stifled uppity luxury hotels that are aplenty in KL. This one is young, fresh, vibrant and just the right amount of youthful cool without sacrificing quality – an effort only made possible by YTL Hotels.
In fact, it is one of only two of YTL Hotels’ Autograph Collection of historic hotels – the first being the iconic The Majestic Hotel KL.
