Hotel is nice in reception restaurant pool area but the rooms are dated. We booked a deluxe room and it was not what I expected. That said it was clean staff were great and the location is central. I would also add there is currently a huge building site almost outside that does sully the area. For the price it's... More

Having visited Kuala Lumpur several times in the past, we decided to stay at The Federal on this occasion. We found the hotel to be totally relaxing, the staff both helpful and friendly, and the facilities perfect for our needs. The hotel is surrounded by shops, restaurants, bars and it provides a perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle... More

The lobby and the welcoming looked high class, as if you're in a 5 star hotel. But don't expect too much as you walk further in. The rooms are okay. I consider it quite expensive cause I can get 4 star rooms with this price. Good part is that, it's very close to bars, pubs, low yat and a few... More

After checking in, I tried to place a local telephone call from my room and was told I had to return to reception and deposit 100 ringitts to make any phone call. There was no temperature control in the room and it was too cold all the... More
