|BANGKOK, 27 September, 2005 — Accor is launching its 4-star Novotel
brand in Kuala Lumpur in June 2006, right in the middle of the city centre

Novotel Hydro Majestic Kuala Lumpur is strategically located across the street from the recently opened Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, and all the city’s main tourist and commercial districts within easy walking distance to the hotel.
Hydro Hotels Sdn Bhd Managing Director, Ms Angeline Mah, said the company was delighted to expand its relationship with Accor and extend the partnership into Malaysia.
“We are very pleased to join Accor on Novotel Hydro Majestic Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysia answer to Japan’s Ginza with its outdoor cafes and trendy shops.
