TRIBECA BUKIT BINTANG
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.
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.
