Good central location but old rooms
The foyer area.
The Istana was a suggested hotel for the international conference I attended. It was good value for money but certainly not a luxury hotel. Rooms are small and bathrooms need a refurbishment. I'm sure this would have been a quality hotel in the 80s. I have no complaints or issues with this place, particularly as location to KLCC was great.

Centrally located

The service was good, Nice staff. The reception and pool area was also good. The gym could have been upgraded with some more up to date equipement. The room was huge, also the bathroom. I would recommend to changte the ugly brown carpets which made the room look dirty, even then it was clean. Besides this the hotel had a great location. Ten min walk to KL Tower, 15 min walk to Twintowers (incl night club area), 20 min to Chinatown and a lot of good shopping Malls close by - and easy access to Hop on Hopp of sightseeing buses.

solid five star option
good location for nightlife, local food market and close to 21st century shopping without being too close
The club floors provide personalised service and intimacy. However main lobby is a bit pedestrian. The building itself is a bit aged but comfortable and spacious rooms. Staff are wonderful

great hotel, great everything
Service, location, rooms
I highly recommend this hotel for all types of travelers. The hotel is a good 15 min walk to the Petronas and just 5 mins away from the Train Stations and Bus stations. The rooms are superb. Service is stellar.

Great Location beautiful Visard
Hotel lobby and reception and facilitiies
The hotel visage including the reception and lobby area is first class. In contrast the our deluxe standard room on the 8th floor was in desperate need of a a comprehensive clean or maybe a renovation. It was disapointing for my first visit to KL.
