Centrally located but a congested traffic locality
Centrally located
the pros and cons of this hotel: pros: 1. centrally located cons:- 1. a bit run down for a rated 5 star hotel and a tired look. 2. space for bathroom is half the size of the room! 3. receptionist was slow and lethargy in checking in guests. 4. located in highly congested area. 5. for a 5 star hotel still offering a non lcd tv is a let down.

Hotel with perfect location and services!
Great location, very near the landmark
the hotel welcomes you with warmest smile, the services are quick and you are immediately shown to the room without any delay. you do not have to worry about your baggage as they are immediately being delivered to your room as soon as you enter the room. the room is quite big and very comfortable for two people staying, even for 3 people is still manageable.

loveky hotel and service with a smile
same place with my conference event
it was nice to stay at istana hotel. there are many restaurants around the hotel. if you want to dine outside, just go to bukit bintang street, you'll get an interesting experience. the hotel's location is close to petronas (twin tower), so it is a good area to shoping as well. for the businessman will be confortable to stay at istana hotel, they provide an internet access in the room, make us easy to do our work during our stay. i have recommended istana hotel to my colleague, i believe they will be pleased staying there.

My favourite hotel in KL but...
Excellent location, large bathrooms, friendly staff
I have stayed in a few hotels in KL but since I discovered, I have stayed no where else but here. It's not the best among its peers but it offers value for money. Excellent location, decent rooms, comfortable beds, fabulous bathrooms and a bunch of very helpful and friendly staff. However, ever single time I stayed there, I had a hiccup with the check-in. It is a nightmare. The first time, they lost our reservation although the booking was done directly through their website. Another time, the room was not ready although we arrived at 5pm, well after their official 2pm check-in. On the rest of the occasions, our rooms were either not ready or not available, which led to horrible waiting periods of between 30mins to 1.5hours at their cafe (with complimentary fruit juice). That said, I will still continue staying here - in fact, I just booked it for my trip in April.

Well Maintain
Great Location, Friendly staff
old hotel but well maintain, 5 minute walk to lot 10 and pavilon shopping mall. friendly staff and good choice of breakfast. however, bed is too small to share with young children. overall, worth the money and highly recommended.
