I went there with a couple of friends and we booked the standard rooms meant for two. My review would be as follows:-
the place is rightly situated at the heart of KL. it is just a stone throw's away from KLCC and the KL High Court. Mont' Kiara, Hartamas and Publika, the expat hangout place famed for its arts and well-heeled revelers are less than a few minutes drive. Despite being located in the hubbub of the urban landscape, Damas Suites is a really quiet short of being eery given that not much business has yet to open up shop.
if you plan to take a few days break with some ftiness activities involved, the gym moderately equipped. its not meant for seasoned bodybuilders or athletes rather for those who needed to exercise somewhere away from home but not in a commercial gym. there's also an open air swimming pool and also a barbeque place (which have seen better days i guess). the front desk was helpful all of the times i have been here (twice). the guards were also nice enough to help us find our room and the parking was ample and you will always get to park at P1. the elevators however have some room for development. some of the elevators have yet to have its proper interior installed and the management instead relied on blue construction covers which were hideous to the sight.
here is what i have to complain. the designer tried to make the room look modern and chic but i guess it must have failed terribly. firstly, damas incorporated a business desk but the rooms lack proper power points. other serviced residents on the same par seem to have sockets in abundance. the electric stove has a switch which was very difficult to reach and we didnt expect for it to be switched off upon our arrival. there was also lack of good amount of utensils, oven and microwave which are essential for travelers who prefer to stay in and cook. floor and kitchen towels were also sparse. the design of the bathroom was nice but i found it weird that the shower cubicle had to be very open hence allowing water to splash onto the dry side of the toilet. the built in cupboard was also awkward especially if one is watching the TV while the other searches the cupboard because the sliding doors obstruct the view of the TV.
one thing i like about the room was the washing machine although it was not an essential part of any serviced residence. the aircond and TV and the channel selection on the tv were great too. the internet connection via wifi was also swift and the front desk were kind enough to provide more than one username and password for our room.
damas suites and residences is a really good place to go to for a short break from home and work. its nice for couples or small families. the price is reasonable and i hope the management will do its best to continue improving the place. i will definitely return.
