Have just spent 30 nights at this hotel. What I can say is this is one very, very tired Flamingo who has come to roost by the Lake. During my stay I had to move rooms 3 times due to noise, and poorly maintained air-cons. This hotel purports to be 3 star, in reality its struggling to reach 2 star.... More

Writing a review on any hotel we stayed, is no easy task. If the hotel is too bad we normally do not write a review. Only when a hotel reaches a minimum level of quality and standard, then only we will be compelled to write a review. This is due to the fact that opinion is very subjective and any... More

This was probably a beautiful hotel at one time and it still has great bones. But it is in serious need of an upgrade. The standard room needed a good cleaning. The bathroom was very smelly and with a broken douching hose (not sure what the correct name for this item is). Bed was old and pillows were those big,... More

The staff claimed me underage, I have problem when check in the hotel. It was boring, far to certain areas. Swimming pool look horrible, I wouldn't go. Free parking was really helpful..Overall not worth my money

Nothing much to say about the hotel. What I can say is, it is a very quiet hotel with basic furniture and amenities. The traffic can be really bad during peak hours. Although inside the hotel is very quiet, but outside really noisy caused by the traffic and sometimes it could be chaotic.

I decided to stay there because my usual place was fully booked. For less than rm200, it seems like a steal in KL and it claims to be a 3 star hotel. It must have been a good 10 years since I was there. It was badly maintained and staffed by rude tarty Philippinos then. Perhaps the lower Malaysian salaries... More

Six years ago I remember staying at Flamingo by the Lake in Ampang. It was new then, with room balconies overlooking the little lake it was picturesque, clean. The service was friendly. One of the receptionists even told me they wanted to earn another star. They were a three-star hotel back then. When I was booked into this hotel again... More

Arrived from Australia and stayed there for a week. Location is not good. Had to walk 5 minutes to get to my room from reception. Rooms were a big disappointment, towels were ran down and dirty. I got dirty towels every day. But that's not ye worst part ! I left this hotel with bed bug bites and scabies !... More
