ULTIMATE LUXURY AT E&O RESIDENCES KUALA LUMPUR

With E&O Residences being strategically located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s Central Business District (CBD), it’s the ideal place to reside in, whether it’s for business or pleasure. With its 200 exclusive and stylishly appointed suites available and fully equipped with the required amenities, you can practically call the service residence your “second home away from home”. Perched on a rare elevated plot of land that overlooks the commercial district, this haven of luxury, along with its sister-property, St. Mary Residences, is purposely positioned on the secluded Jalan Tengah, which is hidden away from the hustle and bustle of busy lifestyle out there but without being obstructed from the captivating views of the city skyline. Everywhere seems to be just a stone’s away from E&O Residences. From nightspots, world-class restaurants, cool bistros, shopping malls, luxury boutiques, 5-star hotels as well as the corporate offices of global giants, are just a short distance away, either by walking or via the convenience of the KL Monorail. At E&O Residences, it’s all about working and playing within the vicinity.

THE KEY BANGKOK HOTEL AT SUKHUMVIT SOI 19 BANGKOK THAILAND

You may think Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand is not as big as it sounds but it’s 1.5 times the size of Penang Island and Mainland combined. However, Bangkok is more densely populated with endless attractions compared to Penang. Thus, it’s great if you know which would be the best location to stay based on your itinerary during your vacation. There may be over thousands of city & riverside hotels, boutique hotels, guesthouses or even hostels to stay in and it can be a little daunting for first-timers in Bangkok. To me, it’s not about the things you planned to do in Bangkok but the knowledge to fully utilize the mass transits to get to your destinations. With over 50 districts in Bangkok, I’ve chosen the district of Watthana with the convenience of having both the Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS) and the Metropolitan Rapid Transit (MRT Metro) easily available. That’s the reason I’ve checked into The Key Bangkok Hotel.

THEKEY01 photo THEKEY01_zps3dbwyuyw.jpg

The Key, a 3-star hotel, is not much of a lavish hotel with complete facilities, but it’s just the right one for my basic necessities. Most importantly, a hotel has to be clean. Moreover, I realized that the housekeeping team has been a bit too hard working during my 5D4N stay in the hotel by replenishing all the used shampoo bottles, drinking water, beverage sachets and towels on a daily basis (when they stressed that we should try to go green and avoid changing towels daily). Though small in size, the hotel still has a comfortable sitting area with an indoor coffee house and an al fresco area to chill out.

THEKEY02 photo THEKEY02_zpsnfqufzen.jpg

As for the room, I would say it’s quite spacious for a THB2000++ room with facilities such as a small kitchen (with plates, bowls, cups, glasses and necessary utensils), microwave oven, refrigerator, electric water kettle (complimentary coffee & tea sachets and two bottles of drinking water daily), TV, DVD player, safe deposit box, dressing table, working table, dining table, build-in wardrobe, hairdryer and bath tub with hot showers. Moreover, the washroom came equipped with hair shampoo, body shampoo, spa shampoo, hand wash and hand lotion bottles.

THEKEY03 photo THEKEY03_zpsx7ri8mby.jpg

However, there were two major setbacks in the room. One will be the toilet bowl which is too near to the wall. Thus, it will be quite inconvenient for huge sized house guests to do their “business”. Moreover, the blinds were not overlapping properly, resulting in the feeling of insecurity to prevent peeping toms from the opposite building. On top of that, there was no dish washer in the room. Though the housekeeper will clean up those dirty dishes, it would be great if they can provide that for long term house guests. As for WIFI, it’s not as stable as my personal 3G connection (though my Happy Tourist SIM card was not as smooth as it should be outside the vicinity of the hotel).

THEKEY04 photo THEKEY04_zpsp60xxma4.jpg

Overall, it’s still a nice place to stay in with minimal sound pollution and the central air-conditioning can be rather cold. Moreover, Terminal 21 is just few minutes of walk away. You can access to a convenience shop right outside the entrance with two more 7-11 shops along the Sukhumvit Soi 19. Restaurants (Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Western), street food, cafes, hair salon, gymnasium and massage & spa parlors are scattered everywhere nearby. Without taking the risk of missing my flight (12.00 noon) to get home, the staff was helpful enough to get me a taxi to Don Mueang International Airport for a mere THB400 at 8.30am.

Here are some peeps of what to expect surrounding the vicinity of The Key Bangkok Hotel.
