We have stayed at this hotel numerous times for the last three years because of its excellent location and reasonable price. But our recent stay of two nights in July 2011 didn't go too well. We arrived in three cars and pulled in to their tiny driveway/courtyard. Even before I had the chance to open the boot of the car to unload our luggage, I was told to move on, alledgedly for causing traffic jam. I retaliated but moved on immediately after unloading. (What a way to treat arriving guests!) I then complained to the management, and showed her what caused the jam (those 15-20 odd cars parked everywhere on the yard). Don't think she did much, but I never saw the guy again (who rushed me away).
The big plus of this hotel is its location. It's right in between KLCC and Pavillion (Bukit Bintang area). And it is also reasonably priced (unlike the Mandarin Oriental, Marriott and Westin). KLCC (and Petronas Twin Tower) is right across the road, and Pavillion is less than 5 minutes walk. They are building a skybridge that will link KLCC-Impiana-Pavillion, probably another year into completion.
Right now, Impiana is surrounded by constructions. Hyatt, skybridges and Impiana's own wing extension. Noisy and the fronting road (Jalan Pinang) can be a nightmare.
The rooms are spacious and nice, all with hardwood flooring. Breakfast buffett is really nice too. Lots of selection, and they vary the food.
While constructions are ongoing, parking is across the road in KLCC car park. Very inconvenient, and could take as much as 15 minutes, even with the provided shuttle.
For now, I'm giving this hotel a miss. (Constructions and car park being the main reasons). I'll be in Kuala Lumpur next week, and have booked the Royale Chulan instead.
