Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur will be officially opened on the 1st December 2012. This YTL luxury hotel is set to rekindle the glory of the former Hotel Majestic by re-creating the bygone era of the 50s but in a grand style at a price of RM250 million. The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur also includes the original Hotel Majestic which is documented as a national heritage site under the Malaysian Antiquities Act. This colonial heritage building was built in 1932 and became one of the great hotels of Kuala Lumpur in its time where many well-known and famous people have stayed back in the heyday. However, it long lived its time and closed in 1984 and 30 years later, a brand new owner and look.
