PETALING JAYA, Oct 26 — With occupancy rates plummeting due to Covid-19, hotels in Malaysia are resorting to new ways to make use of their properties during the pandemic.
Several hotel chains across the country have introduced their Work from Hotel package, allowing those who are tired of working from home a refreshing change.
And let’s face it, working from home may not suit everyone.
The deals cost a fraction of a night’s stay with discounts on food and beverages with some even offering guests free flow coffee.
At only RM30 a day, Work from Hotel package at The Chow Kit lets you check-in from 9am to 7pm and includes unlimited barista coffee.
Need a change of scene from your usual Work From Home? Work, eat and even sleep at The Chow Kit with our #WFHotel Package at only RM30 per day, from 9am - 7pm on weekdays. Includes free-flow barista coffee, 30% off F&B and 30% off a room stay. https://t.co/ETNg2SzdMC pic.twitter.com/YKiaafUW9V
