Anyone has a map or can describe clearly the route how to go from Sg. Besi toll to Le Meridien Hotel? I am expecting a guest from S'pore next week. I know how to go but I can only meet him in the hotel later part of the day.. So, I need him to check into the hotel first....
Please .. anyone can render some help here????

From what I was able to google, Le Meridien Hotel is at KL Sentral area.
If it is, then direction should be pretty much simple.
After SG Besi Toll, Follow signboard towards Kuala Lumpur.
All the way straight, until you reach a fork. On the right, it goes to Jalan Loke Yew, on the left to Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka.
Take the one to Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka.
Then go on until you see another fork, Go into Jalan Istana and look for the signboard which says Jalan Tun Sambathan which will lead you to Breakfields.
Follow the signboard to lead you to KL Sentral. Then from that point onwards, you should be able to see Le Meridian.
Instructions not too clear though... :o
Here's the best map I could find online.

Thanks TinkerFY.... I know exactly where is Le Meridien .... and I know how to go there too but it is not easy to describe the route to the S'porean especially if this is his first time.
Though you direction not that clear... I think it does a great help... thanks for the direction.. I hope he can understand...
But if anyone has a more comprehensive directions, by all means, it will be most welcome.

Let me try it with the simplest direction I can muster ...
After Sg Besi toll, go straight on till the old airport where the option is to go straight on to Pudu and a left to the Palace/Sentral.
Pass the Istana and proceed straight on. Follow the signs to Sentral. After the Istana, the first turn off to the left goes to PJ (avoid that), 2nd turn off to the left goes to Jln Tun Sambantan (previously Brickfields) (avoid that), the 3rd turn off to the left should be the one that goes to Sentral (go there). After about 200M, you reach a t-junction where you need to go right. Immediately after that (about 50M) you need to take the left exit to Sentral/Hilton/LeMeridian. As you apporach the Sentral buildings, keep right and enter the Hilton/Meridian.

What about after the Sg Besi toll, head for the NPE which is along the way and exit at Bangsar and head for Sentral. No jam and straight forward. In any case, here is the map for your friend to practise a dry run. If he needs to close the roads to all other traffic like what the police did for the NAM, ASEAN and ASSHOLE conference, please let me know.
This map is also very useful. This is a 1:5,000 where you can see the hotel at KL Sentral. Navigate using 1:10,000. Point to the area and click and it will go to the the centre.
And this is the Sg Besi Toll
If he is flying in with a helicopter, then click here for the Google map where he finds his bearing using rooftops map.

PCYeoh, that is the difficult way - if you get onto Jalan Bangsar, it will be very difficult to get into Sentral. Although you actually drive past the 2 hotels on Jalan Travers, you cannot figure out how to get into Sentral ... it will be worse for someone not familiar to KL, not to mention KLites ! Oh, by the way, you need to pay RM1.60 toll on the NPE plus the need to decide which turn to make at the fork on the NPE.

coming frm npe, if you are on jln bangsar, yes you can see the hotels as you go along jln travers. go past all that til you come to the roundabout at the old KTM station and take a u-turn back to the direction you came frm. when you approach KL Sentral, take the offramp on the left to head to the Sentral/hotels.
