19 October 2017:KL’s hottest new destination was created for budget-conscious travellers An amazing location in the centre of KL, hard-to-beat room rates and a community-focused environment are just some of the things to love about the city’s newest hotel. Located at Vortex KLCC, just a short walk from the Petronas Towers and Bukit Bintang’s Golden Tringle shopping district, The Bed KLCC offers a luxurious co-living experience.
“As millennials, we are always looking for something different and exciting when we travel,” said The Bed KLCC Executive Director Leslie Cheong. “This is where the idea of an innovative capsule hotel came to mind. We take the dorm-sharing experience and elevate it to the next level.” Traditionally, capsule hotels are meant for backpackers and young tourists looking for cheaper accommodation. However, these hotels are deteriorating in demand thanks to a lack of facilities, privacy and services. The Bed KLCC seeks to remedy this, understanding that guests are willing to pay more for a better lifestyle lodging.

Shared bathrooms are conveniently fitted with large mirrors and rows of sinks
Although guests share rooms with other travellers, they are able to enjoy privacy in their own pod, where privacy blinds can be pulled down for some much needed me-time. The pods also come fully equipped with fast-speed wireless internet connection, USB ports for charging, LED lights, multipurpose foldable table, mirror and private locker. There are private suites available for business travellers with more personal space for work.

The Bed KLCC also provides 24-hour security and all-day check-in reception. The lounge area is open from 6am to midnight, and is where guests can mingle, watch TV or enjoy complimentary tea and coffee in the mini cafeteria. Rates start at RM69 per pod, while the suite is priced at RM139. Both are inclusive of complimentary breakfast, daily housekeeping and high-speed internet access. The gallery was not found!
