The Kuala Lumpur Journal (KL Journal), a concept boutique hotel just off Bukit Bintang, the city's main shopping and entertainment district, caters to a new generation of travellers looking for an alternative to hotel chains — one that delivers essential modern day amenities but with a stamp of personal style and identity.

In keeping with the hotel's DNA, the KL Journal's interiors feature exposed beams, weathered wooden surfaces and vintage furnishings. Its 112 rooms are accented by specially commissioned black and white portraits of KL street life and architecture. The king and twin deluxe rooms plus eight designer corner suites all feature floor-to-ceiling windows, ergonomic mattresses, high thread count sheets, a power shower, connectivity for mobile devices, USB charge ports, wireless stereo and 40" flat screen TVs.

Other highlights include Workers' Union, a flexible open-plan communal area which opens out onto a green terrace. The hotel's main restaurant, Bounty, offers freshly baked breads and pastries and a classic menu of European lunch and dinner staples.

The hotel also curates its own insider guide with handpicked suggestions on how to experience KL like a local.
