Coffee in your hotel room.

So I was at Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur last night until this morning, and one thing that really stood out to me about the place (apart from the anemic waterslide shared with the Hilton) was the in-room coffee setup.

Unlike other hotels, which either give you a Nespresso machine (cool) or packets of instant (not so cool), Le Meridien KL gives you two packets of ground coffee, two cups, a plunger and a kettle. Besides the usual sugar, there's even chilled milk shots in the fridge.

The entire setup is complimentary, with instructions included. The coffee I made in a stupor at 5:45am was great.

Why isn't this a thing elsewhere? Has anyone found this setup anywhere else? Do you think this is a good idea?

watson374,

This set up is available in many other hotels. It depends on the establishment you're in.

Really? I'm insulted the InterContinental in KL only stocks Nescafe in-room.

(First world problems indeed, especially given the local coffee shops.)

The Pullman hotel in Auckland does this, as do quite a few hotels in Sydney and Melbourne - NOT I might add the InterContinental Sydney where i've been for two nights this week - Moccona sachets and 4 little tubs of UHT milk - very poor for what's supposed to be one of Sydney's premier hotels.

The IC in KL takes it one step further and offers non-dairy creamer sachets.

Brady Hotels and Adelphi hotel both have that too, and they're no big/chain hotels.

That's brilliant, Watson - as mucb as I enjoy a Nespresso machine in a hotel room for a quick shot, this is a trend I'd love to see spread far and wide!

I haven't seen it anywhere else, but I've got some more exploration ahead. I agree, I would love to see this around more as the rule rather than the exception. I think more hotels should take the plunge.
