Intercontinental hotel is located in the heart of the city. It is within walking distance to KL's landmark - the twin towers. The staffs were very nice and helpful. The hotel lobby was exquisite. But what I love the most from this hotel is the bed. The bed was medium firm with large pillows. I didn't feel like going anywhere... More

I have just returned home after a 2 night stay. I have stayed at many 5 star hotels in KL, and I believe this hotel is wonderful on many fronts. First is the smile and the welcome greeting at the front door. This is then duplicated by all the staff throughout the hotel. It really makes you feel welcome. The... More

We had a nice, but short, two night stay at this hotel. Wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is well-located, and easy to get to from the airport via KL Sentral station. Many people probably stay here for business, but we were here for leisure, and the hotel is actually in a relatively good location to see the... More

I travel for business regularly to KL, and I always try to stay at the Intercontinental on Jalan Ampang.The hotel is a smart business level hotel in a good, relatively central location.

Functional for business travellers; and in the right location for families/tourists wanting to be near KL’s landmarks. Overall quality of service ranges from 3* to 4*, with the exception of the Club Lounge, where the service is 5* The rooms give you a near 5* experience; restaurants offer a mid to upper-market experience. No “MasterChefs” at this Intercon, sadly! The... More

A jewel in the heart of Malaysia, InterContinental Kuala Lumpur offers one of the most sought after locations in the city, making it an ideal urban retreat for both business and leisure travelers.

Note: In our efforts to continually provide the highest standards of quality services and facilities to our guests, we are thrilled to announce our highly anticipated new project for the Club InterContinental Lounge on Level 26.
