We stayed in a budget hotel for the first 2 nights, horrible! We had to move to a more comfortable, luxurious hotel for the remaining 2 nights and we got that with the Istana. Check in was smooth, staff were all very friendly, from receptionist, porters to restaurant staff. Our deluxe twin room was very spacious, beds comfortable. Bathroom huge and clean. Love that the shower was stand alone from the bath and the toilet was separated with a sliding door. There were also two basins. Will be great for families. Location close to city center, there is a monorail station just in front, very convenient however you can walk to the center where the big shopping centre Pavilion is, just 10mins away, large food court at Level 1. Can also walk to the Twin Towers 15-20mins. Just take the monorail to get to different areas Time Square, Chinatown, most cost 1.20 ringetts one way. The hotel uses an executive taxi service so cost is much higher but there's no need to use taxis. Airport is an hour drive away, you can take the monorail to KL Sentral, from there take the bus or train to the airport; allow at least 1.5hours for this route. If you are travelling Air Asia, they have a bus which cost just 9 ringetts, leaves every half hour, last one at 10pm.
