The Staff / Francis at the poolbar / Location
We had a fantastic stay once again at the Istana. The staff make you feel really welcome, the hotel lounge / restaurant & pool area are all very comfortable. The club lounge excels with their service and attention. Bathrooms are tired and need upgraded {quickly}, this is really the only negative we can say about the hotel. Overall our stay was great, as the hotel location is close to everything, and we would return again.

Lovely hotel
Large room, friendly staff, good location
Stayed a night here when I was attending my friend's wedding in the town, and had a decent and enjoyable stay. The check in was speedy, the staff were generally and genuinely friendly, even the housekeeping staff who smiled and asked me how my day was. I can't really recall any other hotel whose staff does that, except perhaps Pangkor Laut Resort. The room is spacious, with a mix of old fixtures (bed side lamp still attached to wall and has a button to turn on and off) and new ones. The toilet looks newly refurbished, wonderfully spacious and spotless and white. The water pressure is really awesome! I could stand under it for hours if given the opportunity to. However, the bed side tables are lacking power points, a necessity for people like me who leaves their phone to charge at their bed side. My friend who stayed at the 4th floor seemed so close to the LRT, but my room at the 12th floor is heavenly away from the road and noise. I do however have an issue with the F&B though. We usually place an order for club sandwich through room service in various hotels to see how creative they can get with the good ol stuff, and this hotel doesn't rate high in my list despite charging RM 47 for it. Perhaps the F&B guys who stay a night at Majestic and take some pointers from their room service F&B. I also don't quite understand the selection of complimentary tea provided. 1 bag of Dilmah and a bunch of Jasmine and God knows what tea by some Chinese company. Forgive me if I can't appreciate good chinese tea bags, but I would appreciate it if hotels just invest a few ringgit more per room to perhaps offer a selection of Twinnings tea instead. That would definitely make my day. All in all, I had an enjoyable stay, and would definitely come back at the next opportunity.
