What benefits to expect when you stay at Hyatt House Kuala Lumpur, Mont Kiara as a World of Hyatt Globalist member?

Hyatt House Kuala Lumpur, Mont Kiara opened in 2018 with a total of 298 rooms.

Best time to stay

This is currently a Category 1 World of Hyatt property requiring 3,500 to 6,500 points per night. Staying in this property is one of the best ways to redeem your Hyatt points.

If you do not have Hyatt points, you’ll be happy to know that purchasing the points is cheaper than paying the usual cash rate, regardless of membership status!

Aim for “off-peak” nights to stay in this property for just 3,500 points. The easiest way to find those off-peak nights is by looking at the points calendar of Hyatt House Kuala Lumpur, Mont Kiara.

Location

The hotel is located in the upscale neighbourhood of Mont Kiara, just West of the city centre. There are 3 medium-sized malls located within walking distance from the property.

  • 2 mins walk to 163 Retail Park
  • 20 mins drive to Petronas Twin Towers
  • 50 mins drive to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL)

Arrival

Upon arrival, we had our temperatures taken and were assisted with our luggages before being directed to the reception.

I had booked the base room and was pre-upgraded to the One Bedroom Suite, as a Globalist member benefit, a day before arrival! This is fantastic Elite Member Recognition as the properties with the Hyatt House brand do not have to upgrade Globalist members!

One Bedroom Suite

Room 3018 is 50sqm / 538sqft in size.

The suite is very well-equipped to make any guest feel at home. This was my first time staying in a Hyatt House. I found the furnishing (especially the bathroom) very Airbnb-like and a little boring.

I also wished that the building was designed to allow larger windows. The bedroom would have looked a lot better without the large wall/pillar blocking natural light.

I generally prefer open, studio-like suites/rooms over ones with separate bedrooms. I hope to return for a stay in one of the Studio suites in future.

On the plus side, I loved having a huge water dispenser in the room.

Breakfast

Breakfast is complimentary for ALL staying guests and was served through an à la carte menu at Gallery Kitchen on the ground floor.

Breakfast was really basic and quality was below average. Considering what you’d get in other amazing hotels in Malaysia at a similar price point, I’d call it borderline poor.

Service was very cold, unfriendly and canteen-like. I placed the order at the entrance and proceeded to have a seat. I was then told to wait at the collection point.

I did not enjoy eating the soggy croissant that was served together with my scrambled eggs.

Bottom line

For what I paid in points, it was a good stay.

However, considering the fact that there are plenty of amazing hotels in Kuala Lumpur and that Alila Bangsar costs exactly the same amount of Hyatt points, I can’t see why anyone would prefer this property, unless if you really would like to cook your own food, do your laundry or just need to stay in Mont Kiara.
