An interesting feature about Toojou is the co-working space that can be accessed by hotel guests for free (non-hotel guests can pay a daily rate of RM30)! Creative nomads can use this space to discuss new ideas and catch up on work emails. Sprawled with hanging light fixtures, soft pillows and vibrant bean bags, this co-working space has plenty of perks including complimentary coffee and snacks, usage of business printer, complimentary Wi-Fi and more.

If you need a break from answering a bunch of work emails, there are foosball and snooker tables where you can take a break or get competitive with a new friend.

While there are many bright-coloured armchairs and couches to make yourself comfortable, Toojou has an amazingly cool slide that spirals from the upper to the lower floor. Who says a co-working space has to be dull and boring? ?
