Komune Living - Bangsar South
With my recent staycation, I have the opportunity to stay at Komune Living in Bangsar South. This co-living concept studio/apartment style is just shy of a 10-minute walk to Kerinchi LRT Station.
Just like its theme, you will share space with others. "Komune" in the dictionary refers to "shared".
You will have your own room however the rest of the space, you will share with others as this is what Komune Living is all about. Like any other hotel, the space includes a playroom, a working space, fitness, laundry, etc.
One key co-living space that attracts me is the Community Kitchen. The Community Kitchen is equipped with basic kitchen tools such as cookware, 2 dedicated electric stoves, and cooking utensils which you can use for free. There is a lot of seating area where you can eat your meal. I saw a few guests use the kitchen. I would use it, probably but bit awkward at first (or maybe for weeks).
This is also one of the best features of this hotel. I like the concept of self-check-in / check-out to skip the long queue. Two self-check-in/out at the lobby and it is very easy to do. While it is convenient for guests but nothing compared to hospitality from human beings!
After I look at the room choice and meet with some of the residents, some of them have been staying months at KOMUNE. They pay roughly RM2000 plus a month depending
on what type of room you choose. Typical long stay room ( Dreamer One PLus room that is equipped with separate living room, microwave, seating areas will cost RM2000 plus. Considering its location and furnished rooms plus all facilities, RM2000 makes sense.
Good For Who?
Based on the concept and the facilities, KOMUNE is suitable for temporary long-stay businesses traveler or long-stay holiday makers. It has laundry and a kitchen to cook. If you are willing to spend the day like me inside the hotel, KOMUNE is also a good choice. Spend your morning swimming at the pool at level 29, get your lunch at the Cafe or cook at Community Kitchen and spend the rest of the day in a Game-based room - play games, read or even just watch movies.
