We recently visited the hotel for two nights. The location of the hotel and the basics of hotel is great, but the staff are not very friendly and helpful. Other than that the hotel is fine, they are just currently renovating some parts of the hotel so if you would like to sit at the pool, do not expect a... More

I stayed at this hotel for a few days, the service is great, the staff are friendly. It is in the hub of the town which means there are shops, restaurant, shopping centres all around the hotel. There is also a Monorail near the hotel which means it is easy to travel to different parts of the city using the... More

Federal Hotel is "the Hotel" for me when I am down in Kuala Lumper. For less than USD100.00 it is very convenience especially if you are looking for night life. It also one of the oldest hotel in the vicinity of Bukit Bintang. Mono rail stop nearby provide easy access to the hotel from KL Sentral.

We stayed at the Federal Hotel for 3 nights in March 2014. When I booked the hotel had paid for a triple bed room with a pool view, however ended up in a double room but on a higher floor. The location is fantastic within walking distance to the shopping centres in the centre of KL. Not sure that I... More

Nothing great about this hotel except its location. The room is very old and tired looking. The toilet bowl becomes clogged during our stay (i remember same thing happened the last time i stayed here). Famous Ah Lor street food just 5 mins walk away and shopping mall like Pavilion and Fahrenheit also 100-150 meters away. Overall, this hotel is... More

Well i have to admit when me and my friends first went in we found the receptionist not that friendly and bored out of their brains everything else was great. We were worried after reading the bad reviews beforehand but thank god we got upgraded to the newer Merdeka Deluxe Room. The room was perfect, couldn't ask for anything more.... More

This is my first time here. And despite stumbling on many bad feedbacks, we had a great stay. We got the twin-sharing room. The room was clean and there is a bath tub (despite the web indicated no tub). The beds are comfy and the tv have a variety of channels. The room service was fantastic. Must try the Federal... More
