Good value but not luxury.
Comfortable guest room, pool and garden area and the buildings design.

It's way below "FIVE STAR"
I checked in Hotel Istana on 26/04 and stayed for 2 nights. It was an unhappy experience for me. Upon check in, I was told that I was given two single beds as I requested for 1 big bed while I booked. Therefore, after half hour of argument at the check-in counter, I was then given a room with big size bed (even though I was told there is only room with 2 single beds left initially). After check in to the delux room, I realsie the room didn't come with safety box plus the air-con was not even functioning. After complaint, I was told by the staff that security box will only be provide upon request ( I thought it was mention in, that it is included). Finally, they give me a room at club floor, which is smaller in size but with the similar facilities . However, I do not think that for the money that I paid worth the service I had with Hotel Istana. (Even is so called ‘ Five Star’ hotel) I think that there is a lot of improvement require for the hotel to reach the ‘ 5 star’ status. Besides, I had a bad experience while having my breakfast at the restaurant. I was given a seat at the pool side. After taken my food from the bar, I realised that my seat was taken by another in-house guest while I return to the seat allocated. I request the staff to assist, but nothing was done, therefore, I had to look for another seat inside the restaurant. It doesn’t end here, while I having my meals, the water dripped from the ceiling on top where I was sitting. It was quite a bad day for me to start with.

Classy but dated, value for money, good enough
Location, stone throw away from pavillion mall, petronas tower view
Stayed in a deluxe room. because the our rooms were not available at 2pm, the staff gave us a room with a view of the twin towers. the room was spacious enough, as well as the bathroom. there were only things that bother me with the hotel: (1) we always have to have our wallet with us since they do not accept bills being charged to the room - the good thing here is that the check-out was so fast that we just need to leave the key at the reception and go; (2) the non-smoking room obviously had guests who were not following the rules; (3) pre-paid mini-bar. over-all, the hotel is good and functional. value for money so i won't mind staying again when in KL.

Perfect stay for first time in KL!
Great location, close to city and spacious room,
We LOVED our stay with Istana and without a doubt would book to stay here again! The decor is a bit outdated but didn't bother us to much.
