A formerly glorious place, but need renovation
Pool, building exterior, lobby
Then lobby is pretty amazing, and the pool is good but the rooms and corridors need renovating. They really feel like their 20 years old. Old sockets and switches and an absolutely ancient hairdrying contraption in the dated bathroom. Furniture reminds me of stuff in my grandmothers house. It really feels more 3 star because of this and there's no way I'll be back, especially with so many amazing hotels in KL. I only booked this one because I was in a rush and it was Agoda recommended at the top of the list.

Great Location, Awesome service
High Quality Staff Performance, Luxurious Rooms, Excellent Location
It was a very relaxing and comfortable stay at the hotel Istana. The only things I found a little strange were: 1. Room minibar was empty and no effort was made to stock it. 2. Please keep small fresh milk capsules with the tea service in rooms instead of creamer (powder) and also keep more than 2 tea bags.

Good hotel, fabulous location.
Was centrally located with very friendly, courteous and most helpful staff. Really went out of there way for you. Bedrooms could be doing with a refurbishment and a softer matress.

It's an old building with 3 stars bathrooms
Location, elevators & lobby life band
I've been to Istana on my honeymoon.. The location is really nice but I don't believe it's 5 stars hotel, the bathrooms are old

I think very close to Pavillion, but there is slight distance. And there's no store around the hotel. All good, except it .
