The Flamingo was the first thing I saw when I arrived in KL to live, because of its closeness to my work. I desperately hoped that it was not a metaphor for KL itself! I understand that it used to be hip and happening but now it is decayed and dying- my room smelt like it was already dead. I... More

First time I have visited the Flamingo even though I have lived in the area for 18 years. Back then, the Flamingo had a great reputation. Now, it is tired and old.

What was once a happening hotel with great view of the lake, busy coffeehouse & many outdoor activities have taken a downturn over the years. The lake looked like an oversized pond with no activities. The food served during buffet breakfast was truly mediocre. The usual fried rice noodles, porridge, cereals, fruits & egg station. Nothing great. Coffee tea juices... More

We booked this hotel because our son had a sports tournament at the international school close by. This hotel is horrible. Mold in the bathroom. Big fat cockroach to greet you in morning. Pay cash for room service (inedible). Dirty sheets. Tv remote don't work. Don't stay here.

Easy to park your car. Services were excellent. Food, especially mutton curry was delicious. However, wifi internet was damn slow and the traffic congestion made me think twice if i want to go sight seeing by car from the hotel.

Brought my family to stay at this hotel. This is my 3rd time staying here. A nice place to stay with good breakfast. Location is a lil inconvenient due to the heavy traffic outside the hotel but the easiest location to go down to town. To town is just a 10min drive away going by the Akleh highway paying Rm1.10...
