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

The staff at this hotel including their management are very lousy. When you request a tissue box replacement, you got to call the housekeeping many times. After the 3rd call when you told them that you will lodge a complain, then they will only deliver to your room after 6 hrs wait. The housekeeping staff does not made sure the... More

Located on the main strip of Bukit Bintang. Everything is in walking distance and if not you can catch the monorail which is close by. The staff are lovely and willing to help. Breakfast is a must! So much to choose from and all very tasty!

This hotel is not the cleanest and lacks quality and class. However if you are after shopping this is an ideal pick with Lowyat plaza, BB plaza, Sung Wei plaza and Berjaya times square all within walking distance from the hotel. There is also a lovely Pakistani restaurant next to the main entrance of the hotel and food is cheap... More

We stayed three nights at this hotel. The service was very good from check in to the resturants and the guys at conciege were especially helpful. On arrival you walk into a very swish lobby so expect good things to come as far as your room is concerned. Sadly that wasn't the case. Our room was the size of a... More

Spend a night at the Federal Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. This is the oldest star rated hotel in Malaysia, Check in was hassle free. Had requested for new wing rooms but was told that there were no more left. But unlike most reviews on TA, our room was very small...it reminds me of those in Tokyo or HK. We just have... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on route to New Zealand. The hotel is central to the main sights in the city and is within the 'golden triangle'. We were moved from our room after 2 hours because there was an issue with the toilets in that block. We were quite relieved as it smelt strongly of cigarette smoke. Our new... More

My 1st time in Malaysia. This hotel is great. I read some review about the hotel. There are some bad review about the hotel. I was surprised it was a different experience. A GOOD ONE! The wifi is not an issue. We have a fast internet connection. The room is clean and comfy! You can see the Petronas Twin Towers... More
