A quiet hotel just a short distance from the city...with a lake and a jogging path for the health concious. A short walk away from Ampang Point; the only shopping mall nearby. Buses and taxis can be found in front of Ampang Point. Menu was a bore after the 2 days ( was there for 10)...hope there will be some... More

Reading the amount of bad reviews posted it's obvious the Management doesn't care what its guests think so why bother adding another review? I wanted to just forget about this place and my stay there but how do I just keep quiet and let it go when I've never ever experienced such unashamedly appalling standards. From the moment I arrived... More

On the 1st May 2014, we had an opportunity to stay 1 night at the Flamingo Hotel by the Lake in Ampang. We were given the Chalet room, which was on the 1st floor of the two floor building. The ground floor is an open car park. Chalet rooms are not joined to the main hotel building, & are located... More

I can't think of any good thing to say about this place. Stayed there for 3 nights. The list is as follows. 1. Bathroom smelled like bad cheese. 2. cockroaches in my bathroom! 3. the sink was clogged from the first night itself. had to scoop the water out for the other two nights. 4. the balcony looks like it...

Nice and clean hotel, food average and the breakfast restaurant was not managed by the hotel so the duty managers were not able to assist us on the poor quality of the food and forced us to pay for food that we couldn’t eat

Stayed one night as woman from UK travelling alone. Lovely welcome. Very helpful staff. Lots of room service choice. Room spotless. Wifi signal not great in room but good in public areas. Enjoyed watching the big monitor lizards swimming in the lake right in middle of city!

Before I came to Flamingo by the lake, I thought I had made some bad life choices. When I arrived to this cesspool, I realized choosing this hotel was by far the worst. Flamingo by the 'lake', excuse me, but that black puddle they call a lake has disease. It poses a threat to the people living nearby, and I... More

For a 3 and a half star hotel, I didn't expect to have a nice facility. In here, they have a lake with a nice romantic view that you can enjoy with your loved ones. Don't expect the room to be tip top though. Enough for a 3-1/2 star hotel. However, something can be done with the parking system. They... More
