We stayed at Federal between 5th until 12th August. Booked 2 rooms. Rooms and hotel was very comfortable. The hotel is located very close to Jalan Alor giving you lots to do during the evening especially with the numerous eateries located around the area. So close to so many places it is really unbeleivable. Only concern about hotel is that... More

we ( 2 adult + 2 child ) enjoy the experience of staying in Federal as the location was nothing better u can expect, the room rate in their front desk was even less than any websites.. its not that perfect one, but if u r looking for a budget hotel in perfect location, then go for Federal.

I had travelled on an airline package deal, so my room was one of the cheapest. On arriving at my floor I realized to my dismay that the whole floor was a smoking one, and the room smelt very strong. The young porter went down to the desk, coming back with instructions to follow him to another floor. Well done,... More

So far so good for me & family. The pool's ok, the service's good, the room's clean, the place's very strategic, it's near from plaza & malls, many restaurants & mini markets around you, but very careful when you walk the streets, just make sure your belongings are safe.

On arrival, the hotel is very grand and the service is great, but once in your room, it feels very old and dated. Although they may not look the best, they are very clean and functional. The pool is beautiful and the restaurant downstairs is amazing. The main thing I liked about the hotel is the location (walking distance to... More

Avoid staying here if you want trustworthy housekeeping to look after your room. I left some items in the room, went on an overnight trip, came back to find the miscellaneous items gone. They were either stolen or thrown in the rubbish. The "security" team took a statement from me, and I never heard back from them ever again, apart... More

Old and small. The only two words sufficient to express my take on Federal Hotel. Does not do justice to the amount payable. Bathtub is small, creaking furnishing, tv channeld are fuzzy and cleanliness wasn't at satisfactory level.
