Stayed 4 nights in September 2012
Bathrooms would need refreshment on some floors
Very elegant lobby
I had a nice room but was not satisfied with the bathroom. Floor was dirty in the toilet on arrival and I ad to ask cleaning staff to come. Some mold in the bathroom that is not something you would expect in this type of elegant hotel. Bathrooms would need to be refreshed. Next time I will book only if I can get the club floor.

Not exactly 5 star as advertised but good price
Competitive rate.
The room is not as promised. There's no ironing facilities as advertised. Bathroom not well equipped with toiletries. In my first night, the tissue box had the last piece of tissue paper, definitely a poor housekeeping practice. However they are quick to deliver the adapter when needed. Good and feel spread breakfast buffet. Good service at restaurant. Room rate is very reasonable however please mind that this is not a 5 star quality hotel although it's classified as 5 star.

PHILIP from United Kingdom

Good location and excellent service
Excellent location in the centre of KL, 3 minutes walk from the Pavillion and Old China Town.
My husband booked this hotel for me and to my surprise I had stayed in the this hotel back in 1993 when I came to KL for business. At that time it was very new and a room could be booked for around £35 a night. Prices haven't gone up that much depending on the bargain you can get. The bed was fabulous and I had a really good nights sleep here. Very popular with the international community. One negative thing I could say is that the rooms are looking in need of a refurb, but it was still very spacious and well worth the money.

Surprisingly Close to everything
Big rooms
I really think that Istana hotel is the best hotel balancing between comfort and proximity to KLCC. The staffs in the hotel are very friendly and helpful. I strongly recommend this hotel for the value and also for the convenience. I'll also recommend for business travellers and also family who wish to travel for holiday.

11 years later the service is still brilliant
Spacious rooms, great furniture, well mainrained
this was my second stay at this hotel. set in the heart of kuala lumpur and within a stones throw of some of the major shopping centres this hotel is one that is highly recommended. the experience starts in the lobby where there are a number of friendly staff with massive smiles and equally large personalities to greet you and assist you with your bags and registration. once complete and you open the door to your room, you know you've made the right choice. the beds are comfortable, the furniture is of a high quality and the bathroom wasn't an afterthought. it is very spacious, very clean and well maintained. i plan on returning to kl and the thought of staying at another property does not enter my mind. i tried another hotel last year on a short 1.5 day stay and was disappointed. you will not regret your stay this property.

Great location
Located right in the heart of KL just a walking distance from Bukit Bintang, Jln Alor for Chinese food , lots of pubs around too.
The room is spacious but the bathroom needs a little maintainence especially the sink and tub. Housekeeping is very good and friendly and the hotel is clean and beautiful too. Reception isn't as friendly but overall it's a good hotel and worth the money especially for its location and comfort. I would definitely use this hotel again.
