Admiring the most iconic building in Kuala Lumpur – the Petronas Towers, while at the same time floating on your back in an infinity pool, just doesn’t make any sense – it simply would be too good to be true. Or, so we thought… While searching for an apartment in Kuala Lumpur on Roomorama.com, we managed to find an unbelievable place to stay, right opposite the famous Twin Towers in the middle of the city.
We stayed for 3 nights at Marc Residence, a luxury apartment complex which offered everything you could want: two large pools (one literally with a view of the Petronas Towers), a tennis court, fully equipped gym, sauna, reading room with free wifi, minimart, laundry and a cafe. Booking online with Roomorama went really smoothly: you find a place you want, send an enquiry to the host, and if it’s available, the host will get back to you and offer you the place. If it is unavailable, or if you simply want to make it easier for yourself, you can use the “Shout Out” feature – where you add the city you’ll be visiting, the dates, number of guests, and write a short message. This message will be sent off to all the hosts in the city you’ll be visiting, who can then get back to you with their offers.
Sometimes you meet the host before moving in, but often the host arranges everything so that this isn’t necessary – we picked up the keys from the concierge at the reception, and once we had moved into the studio apartment, we sent the host a “payment code” so that she could collect the money. It is a very safe system, preventing hosts from taking the money before the guests have checked in and made sure that everything is fine. Our experience with Roomorama was great as always, and anyone looking for apartments with that extra flair and a great location should look into using Roomorama for their next trip.
