Things have been crazily hectic for me and my family these days and it’s been awhile since my husband and I took some time off for some real R&R. And so, when we were invited to stay with Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya for the weekend, I knew it will be a good opportunity for me and my husband to catch up some rest and take a little break from life and just relax.
Situated along the Federal Highway, the Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya is conveniently located in the heart of Petaling Jaya, close to the LRT station, buses and taxi stands allowing more options to all parts of the city and easy access to Klang, Shah Alam and Kuala Lumpur.
My family and I at Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya. Unlike our usual weekend getaway, this time we’re just staying put and concentrate on resting.
To cater to the increasing demands of discerning corporate clients, the 24-storey property features 257 rooms that has been completely renovated in end of 2017 to modern and elegant standards.
Our room was unit 1504; located on the 15th floor of the hotel.
Security is top notch here in Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya. And access to rooms are by using card keys.
Our room was a Duluxe, with extra bedding upon request.
Needless to say, the bed was really comfy bed and we slept through the night like a baby.
Spacious study area and a flat screen TV for your entertainment and leisure.
Mini-fridge and complimentary beverages are provided in the room for your convenience.
One thing that I like about Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya is the all staying guests are given access to the complimentary high speed WiFi. Definitely a plus point especially for those who needs to stay connected all the time.
My favourite spot. The view is amazing from the 15th floor.
Bathroom is spacious, and good enough for couples to share.
If there’s one thing I like about the bathroom is the mirrors. They have mirrors that enable you to see your reflection in almost every angle.
Great for vain people like me.
I spend at least 15-30 mins to groom myself daily.
Shower booth is also huge. I’ve always shared the shower with my husband, so I find the spacious shower booth really pleasant.
Toiletries are provided here for staying guests, so no worries if you forgot your toothbrush or shampoo.
Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya offers complimentary gym access for staying guests. It’s located at level 2, so if you wanna burn off some jiggly bits, just head over and hit it like I did.
The Merchant LIVE, is a definite must-visit for those seeking to have some fun. It is located on the Level 1 of Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya.
The Merchant LIVE comes with
three private suites with karaoke entertainment in every suite. My husband and I love to sing together. It is what we used to do during our date nights. Needless to say, we sang our hearts that night during our stay with Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya.
In addition to karaoke, the biggest
suite, the Gold Suite also features a British pool table and an Electronic Darts machine. Perfect for
guests who prefer to entertain in private. Merchant LIVE is closed on Sundays and Public Holidays.
So, what to eat when you are staying over here at Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya? Well, there are six food and beverage outlets to pleasure your palates over here at Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya, but my all time favourite is the Utara Coffee House. Utara Coffee House can accommodate up to 180 diners at one time and is
open from 6.30am till 11.00pm daily.
I’ve been there countless of times and I have to say that Utara Coffee House is a food paradise. I’ll talk about that in another post, but to sum it up, Utara Coffee House offers delicious array of local and western cuisine that also includes its daily Gastronomic Buffet featured during breakfast and lunch and weekend buffet dinner and high-tea. Utara Coffee House also serves as a venue for private functions, but only with prior booking and arrangement.
Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya is located near LRT station, buses and taxi stands which will allow you to travel to the city easily, but if you don’t fancy the wait or the crowd on public transport, you can just book a ride with Grab at the Lobby. The service is free.

Our weekend staycation was nothing short of amazing. We went to Sunway Lagoon for some fun and had a blast karaoke-ing at night at The Merchant LIVE. It was really relaxing and fun, at least to us it is something we’d do again in a heartbeat. Food and hospitality is superb aa well which make our stay even more amazing and we feel rejuvenated by the time we need to check out.
Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya is a great place to stay if you are a no nonsense kind of person and I highly recommend this place for both business and leisure.
