Hotel Review: Premiere Hotel, Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Klang, Malaysia

During my recent participation in My Selangor Story 2013 programme, I stayed at 4 different hotels, namely Premiere Hotel (Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Klang), Arenaa Stars (Kuala Lumpur), Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa (Bagan Lalang, Sepang) and Vivatel (Kuala Lumpur). The following is my review of Premiere Hotel.

1. The Hotel

Premiere Hotel is a 4-star business hotel that is located in a relatively new township called Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Klang. The location is ideal if you’re looking for a quiet area but would like to remain close to Klang town during your stay.

1a. The Reception

Together with 2 other My Selangor Story 2013 (MSS2013) participants, I arrived at the hotel early in the evening. We were the first 3 participants out of 20 to arrive. Upon our arrival, we were all immediately impressed with the spaciousness of the hotel lobby area. It didn't take long before we started taking photos of the lobby and its surrounding area, and it sort of set the expectation of the room that we’re going to get for the night.

1b. The Rooms

The hotel has well over 200 rooms, including Executive Club rooms which are located at the top 3 floors of the hotel building. All of us were given an Executive Club room and I was assigned a twin room on 17th floor. The room is spacious and roomy enough, complete with a bedside table, a work table and a wardrobe.

In addition to the fruit basket, the room has tea/ coffee making facility, a telephone, an LCD TV, a safe box, a minibar, an iron and ironing board. TV channels are rather limited but cover local channels, international news channel, sports channel as well as a movie channel if I recall this correctly.

The mattress and bed are comfortable. Linens and towels are okay. The bathroom (shower only, no bath tub) is of a good size. Hot water is available throughout the day. Toiletries are provided.

Overall the room is well furnished and comfortable and should be good for both business and leisure stay.

The hotel has a few 3-bed rooms as well as plenty of connecting rooms, which should be popular among family guests. It also has a wheelchair-friendly room where everything in the room, from the room structure to furniture, has been built to accommodate a wheelchair-bound guest.

1c. Breakfast 

(Click on each photo for a larger image)

Breakfast is served in a café on the ground floor. The café is quite small but dining area can be extended to a room next door to it. Breakfast selection is quite good. It includes local breakfast fares such as nasi lemak and fried noodles, fruit cuts, as well as a selection of cereals, breads and pastries for continental breakfast.

If you stay in one of the Executive Club rooms, you can have complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea at the Club Lounge on 18th floor, which has a nice view of the township.

1d. Internet Access

Internet access is available for free via Wi-Fi at the hotel. Wi-Fi signal however was a bit patchy in some areas in the room (Room 1711) but you can still get connected to internet in the room by getting your laptop “wired”.

1e. Other Facilities

(Click on each photo for a larger image)

Apart from restaurants, the hotel has a swimming pool as well as a fitness centre. There is also going to be a spa opened at the hotel but it was still closed at the time of our stay.

2. Where to Eat

We just stayed at the hotel overnight and didn't get the chance to explore the surrounding area. The hotel has 3 in-house restaurants. If you'd like to stock up on some snacks and drinks, there’s a Tesco just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre is also not that far from the hotel.

3. Getting Around

Being in Bandar Bukit Tinggi area means that Premiere Hotel is well located and connected with good roads and highways. This is good if you have your own transport to get around. If you however don’t, your only options would be either by bus or taxi. The closest train station to the hotel would be Klang Train Station from where you’d still have to take either a taxi or a bus to the hotel.

A Thank You & Disclosure Note

I would like to thank Tourism Selangor and the organiser for My Selangor Story as well as the management of Premiere Hotel for the arrangement to stay at the hotel. The stay was sponsored as part of My Selangor Story 2013 programme. The sponsorship however has in no way affected my review of the hotel.

  1. This hotel is so near to my house and still you couldn't have called and tell you were in town... Huhhhhhhh... *cekak pingang* HAHA

    And btw the way, naik bus nak ke Hotel ni memang ada, cityliner warna merah yang selalu pack dengan warga asing.
    Disarankan kepada pengunjung silalah naik taxi.

    1. Haha! Sorry but I think Shah Alam would be closer to you now that you live in Shah Alam. I suppose it would be the same bus that goes to Teluk?

    2. Shah Alam and Klang is kot so far away laa.. Next time dtg klang lagi sila singgah Telok. Surely ayah nak dengar cerita uncle merantau sana sini.

    3. It's true that Klang and Shah Alam is not that far away but Telok? That's another story ;-D Will try to go there one of these days, insha Allah :-)
