Good front desk service
Checkin, location
Was just ok even though we were upgraded to club room, bed and pillows were worn and did not provide a comfortable sleep.

Not a five star hotel , it feel like more 4-3 star
swimming pool, lobby, location
It was nice but it need an up grade to put it back to 5 star , room clean but need all of maintanence, it old and a lot ware and tire needed to be fix. small thing needed to be consider if you offer yourself (hotel) to be 5 star

Bang for your buck
Staff hospitality , location and the rates per night
My husband and I love to go for weekend staycations, and last weekend , we decided to opt for Istana Hotel . Once the crowning glory of Kuala Lumpur in the early days, we arrived at the check-in counter with zero expectation. We were warmly greeted at the reception desk by a charming lass, Pasang. Having been to other hotels in the city like the Mandarin Oriental and the Westin, I felt that the staff at Istana Hotel were either equally as good , or even better! I felt like their reception towards the guest were genuine , and I didn't feel like I was treated differently because I was a local ( couldn't say the same during my check in at the afore-mentioned hotels). I requested for a room on the higher floor, and Pasang , having had a word with her manager , granter our wish , and we were placed on the 17th floor with a view of the KLCC( Didn't expect that we'd be able to catch a view of KLCC considering the amount of buildings clustering around it). We werre very pleased with our room. Yes, the hotel is old, no doubt about that . There were some visible cracks in the bathroom and you have to hold down the flush a lil longer than usual . However, the warm hospitality of the hotel staff more than made up for it . I'd much rather stay at a hotel with minimal signs of aging with well-trained staff that exudes charm and warmth , then at a brand spanking new hotel with robots for hotel staff. I would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Hotel To Stay In
Great Staff Service, Good Location, Good Food
We had an excellent stay in this hotel. The room may be a bit dated but everything was still in good working condition. The location is good and a very short walk to Bukit Bintang area. The staff were very professional and polite. For the price you pay per night, this is the level of service one should expect.
