Your Home Away from Home

By Jacqueline Benita Paul

With so many tempting options, deciding where to stay in Kuala Lumpur can turn into a dilemma. Should you spend a pretty penny for services you don’t really need but great for your social media buzz or find a minimalisticyet practical accommodation that gives you more value for your buck? If you are leaning for the latter, then Tribeca Service Suites Bukit Bintang is exactly what you need. 


The hotel offers versatile facilities suited for both short and long-term stays. Group travels are also eased with the option of larger suites like The Duo, The Executive or The Pinnacles. Each Apartment comes with a cooking area with all the necessary utensils, a multipurpose washing machine, vast wardrobe space and a dining area. The size depends on the room type and the largest room, in which case Pinnacle can have up to 4 guests. The Studio Suite we stayed in was uncomprimising in spaciousness and ingenious interior design. Comtemporary wooden furniture boosted the chic elegance of the space and minimalistic design gave us a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle. With deadlines on my mind, I placed myself by the work desk that was fully equipped to plug in all my devices with ease.

To reward myself for a job well done, my friend and I made full use of the hotel’s strategic location to all of KL’s hot spots. Shopping malls like Pavilion, KLCC, Lot 10 and other reknowned retail outlets are merely a few minutes’ walk away. When we checked in, a woman who I assumed was a hotel guest was asking for directions to Pavilion for a solid 10 minutes and it led to a point where I felt the need to intervene or order her a taxi. Fortunately, the gentle smile and attentiveness of the lobby staff who patiently repeated themselves convinced me that my intervention was unnecessary.


What we found most unique to Tribeca was the Lifestyle Pods that are specifically designed to suit the needs of its guests. For families, the Jungle Pod offers a spacious indoor playground for children to play in. The Social Pod lets you unwind with a game of foosball, pool or a bean bag-filled spot to socialise with your friends. Other Pods include the Gym Pod, Zen Pod and Business Pod.


Guests at Tribeca have the choice to enjoy breakfast at Wizards (known locally as Wizards of Tribeca). This stylish brunch café has received various accolades for its inventive approaches to food, coffee and the overall brunch experience. Tribeca’s dinner menu is equally as impressive as the brunch menu. We tried the Mediterranean Fish and Beef Cheek. Both were exceptional, especially when paired with the house pour.
