Another flawless experience at YTL hotel. Always perfect, impeccable service, pristine rooms, excellent views, great punchy cocktails at the Smokehouse. Go at 5p.m., the one for one cocktails are really worth the value. Keep some room for the great array at Contango; dinner buffet. The barista/staff who does creamy cappucinos at breakfast really spoil you with his delectable coffees and... More

I stayed a night at this hotel as I attended a dinner function at the hotel. I do think that the dinner function is done by the in house team and if indeed so it definitely fell short of its World's leading Hotel Status. Two incidences made me conclude thus: 1) after eating a fruit , I left its seed... More

For the Room, Very clean very tidy, So much you see on website, it will be what you see in the room. My arrival in KL was prior to the check-in time, and the clerk was so kind to provide me with an available room(same rate) so that me and my gf could freshen up. For commute, The Majestic provides...

I stayed in a deluxe double room at Majestic Hotel a couple of weeks ago and was very satisfied with the hotel. The room was huge, the bed wonderfully comfortable and the room had both a shower and a bathtube. The staff were also extremly helpful and the hotel is located a bit outside the centre if KL, but has... More

Opened in 1932, this hotel was once the hotel to be seen in by KL's elite social and political circles. Recently renovated by YTL, the hotel still retains its old world charm but provides all the necessary modern conveniences for both a good business or pleasure stay. There are two accommodation wings. Taking a tour through the old wing of... More

This is a beautiful art deco hotel with a nob to British colonial tomes that strikes a really good balance between keeping these characteristics and being a 5 star hotel. The staff are exceptional and the facilities as expected. Go here for afternoon tea that starts at 3pm - proper british afternoon tea with scones, sandwiches, cakes and a few... More

Comfortable beds, good amenities, very nice bathroom. Our room was too small and very poorly located, just on top of the Sultan Hishamuddin road with no view. The pool was broken for most of the days that we were there which was a terrible disappointment. The breakfast buffet was adequate but not up to par with 5 star Asian standards.... More

The Majestic is a beautiful piece of Art Deco design and wears its history on its sleeve. We loved the design and the attention to even the tiniest detail; and the humongous rooms (ours was a junior suite with one of the best city hotel bathrooms we've ever used). We also loved the attached amenities, especially the complimentary shuttles to... More

We stayed in KL in March for 7 nights, 6 of those spent in another hotel, but the extra 1st night was a late addition to our holiday so I booked a Deluxe room at the Majestic Hotel. We caught the train from the airport and arrived at KL Sentral where there is a complimentary bus transport to the hotel... More

Just had in mind that I did not write a review for this outstanding establishment, if your in the city of Kuala Lumpur I definitely recommend this establishment because of its location and value. Under the YTL group you definitely would not go wrong. Let me start with the rooms 1.Rooms We got a room at the new wing, rooms... More
