    Why Did We Pick This Hotel?

    This business-oriented hotel, The Boulevard-St Giles Premier Hotel, sits right in the middle of Mid Valley City. Well-known attractions such as Petronas Twin Towers and Menara KL Tower are within reach via the Mid Valley KTM station while family-friendly Mid Valley Megamall and upmarket Gardens Mall are directly connected to the hotel, offering a total of 600 retail, dining and entertainment options.

    The in-house Flutes Living Room offers a selection of imported wines, champagnes and cocktails while Wild Rice Restaurant serves local and western cuisine with an open terrace and pool view seating. Keeping in line with the overall theme of the hotel, rooms are spacious and comfortable, leaning heavily towards muted, executive colours.
