Cockroach
On the outside,KL Journal looks like a great interesting hotel with a great price for a 3 year old hotel in a very expensive area.But you know,if you look hard enough, there are always things you can nitpick on if you want to,but that will not be fair.I just want to highlight a few points that cumulate into why I wrote this review.But the straw that broke the camel's back was the appearance of cockroaches.I first saw a dead big cockroach outside the room infront of the room opposite.i was telling myself,this better not appear in my room.Alas,that very same night,around 2am while going to the toilet,a big cockroach came crawling out of the toilet. I had to kill it and call the reception,an apologetic housekeeping staff came and clear up.I went down to the reception and again this is where it went wrong.I cannot even bother what he said cause he was only interested to tell me he has been working here since it opened and this is the first time this has happened.Kept asking so what I want,want to change room? I gave up talking to such people.Next morning I asked to speak to someone about this and an Indian lady supposedly the manager spoke to me.she acknowledged my complaint that in a hotel this new and of this standard cannot have a cockroach problem.and cockroaches come in colonies and to see two these big, shows there are more hiding somewhere and a non existent pest control.Unfortunately I made another non refundable booking in December and trying to see how I can cancel.

Centrally Located and Lovely Stay!
My husband and I really enjoyed staying at the KL Journal in September 2018. The hotel is in a great location and had great access links to the transportation and major KLCC sites. The hotel staff were very nice and accommodating. The rooms were very clean and bright with nice amenities. My only feedback is for the hotel to update their towels as some of the towels were a bit worn. Other than that, I would happily stay at the KL Journal again!

Beautiful Hotel, Staff not that great...
The hotel is absolutely stunning! The rooms are great, clean and quite big. I also had a great view of the city. Only downside - the hotel staff. When I checked in and when I checked out, neither pairs even tried to be cordial, spoke amongst themselves but not to me. They were not friendly in the slightest. Not the hugest deal because the hotel makes up for it, but would have been nice if they would have been a little bit more hospitable.
