The Bed KLCC (Capsule Hotel KL) Unveils Interactive Co-Living Experience in the Heart of KL City
Invests up to RM20 million to date for the luxury capsule accommodation
KUALA LUMPUR, 12th October, 2017 – The Bed KLCC, a newly available interactive co-living accommodation is officially launched today, offering a luxury capsule-styled experience for all. Located in the heart of KL Golden Triangle and in the centre of tourist' attractions such as KLCC, KL Tower, and Bukit Bintang, it is built with an investment of up to RM20 million. The hotel targets to achieve 50 percent occupancy rate by end of this year, and an increment to 80 percent occupancy in the beginning of next year. The Bed KLCC also aims to launch two more interactive accommodations within the city centre in the next two years.
With its tagline “Your Bed in the Heart of KL”, The Bed KLCC sets to attract local and international tourists, whom are looking forward for a new travel accommodation designed to provide convenience, quality and genuine sense of community at an affordable price.
With its strategic location, The Bed KLCC affords its guests a truly connected lifestyle. The luxury capsule hotel is well connected to an excellent transportation network such as free shuttle bus (GoKL), Light Rail Transit (LRT) and monorail, all available at a walking distance from the hotel.
At the media preview, Co-founder and Executive Director, Mr. Leslie Cheong said, “We are millennials, thus when we travel we always look for something exciting, something new, something different. This is where the idea of innovative hotel came in mind, and we are also looking forward into introducing Malaysia's first co-living concept in our hotel.
“With us, staying in dorms doesn’t feel the same anymore and it's beyond your expectations, that's what most of our friends and guests reviewed after staying with us. We are also targeting business travellers by providing private suites with more personal space for work and stay. We have strong confidence we are able to keep up with the global trends and to fill in the demands of millennial travellers," added Leslie.
Capsule hotels, traditionally known as the dorm and mostly meant for backpackers and young travellers who are looking for budget accommodation, are deteriorating in demand due to lack of facilities, privacy and services. Nowadays travellers are willing to pay more for a better lifestyle accommodation, with contemporary interior design, fast speed internet, and a space for making new friends to immerse themselves into the culture and environment of the city they're travelling to.
"With The Bed KLCC, we offer more than that. Although you are sharing the room with other travellers, you will still have your privacy in the pod, where privacy blinds can be pulled down for your own personal space. Our pods are fully equipped with all the facilities a tech-based travellers are looking for, such as fast speed wireless connection, USB ports for charging, international charging points, LED lights, multipurpose foldable table, mirror, privacy blind, and private locker,” quipped Leslie.
The Bed KLCC can cater to a capacity of up to 170 guests and offers six types of pod to choose from -- Single Pod Side Entry (Female), Single Pod Side Entry (Mixed), Single Pod Front Entry (Mixed), King Pod/Family Pod, Single Pod Suite and Queen Pod Suite.
The size of each single pod is 40sqft whilst the size of the suite is 150sqft, larger than any standard pod offered by traditional capsule hotels. Travellers can opt to choose their preference of pods, ranging from private pods in sharing room to private suite pods, and immerse themselves in a luxurious home away from home experience.
The Bed KLCC ensures the comfort and security of their guests by providing 24-hours security, 24-hours check in reception, and 24-hours in house cleaners. The lounge area opens from 6am till 12am, where guests can work in the business work stations, spend their leisure time watching TV, or interact with new friends from all around the world. The hotel also provides mini cafeteria with complimentary coffee/tea throughout the day.
The Bed KLCC rate begins from RM89 per pod per night and the single pod suite is priced from RM169 per pod inclusive of complimentary breakfast, daily housekeeping, and high speed internet access. The Bed KLCC is now available for bookings and had generated responsive future bookings till February 2018.
In conjunction with its soft opening, The Bed KLCC is now offering an introductory room rate from RM59++ onwards inclusive of complimentary breakfast.
The Bed KLCC is located at VORTEX KLCC at Jalan Sultan Ismail, and easily accessible to Kuala Lumpur’s Central Business District.
