“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Drove up to KL from Singapore. Stayed 2 nights. Location of hotel is v good and within walking distance to most attractions. Room clean though a bit dated.
Some cons: car park is tight and big MPVs may have a problem navigating the corners. And breakfast can be quite a busy affair as the coffee house was crowded ; a couple who came later even had to share the table with us. Pool is small and not meant for serious swimmers.
Overall a satisfactory experience for the price.

As usual the rooms were up to the standard expected at a Novotel with terrific views of the city, excellent facilities, friendly staff and great restaurant. Easy walk to train, shopping and all the city sites. I will be staying here again.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights then moved onto Phuket. The original hotel our agent booked for us in KL had very poor reviews on tripadvisor, so we opted for a better hotel. We were not disappointed. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was good, varied and plentiful. We had a couple of evening meals in the hotel restaurant and found it reasonably priced and enjoyable. The location of the hotel was perhaps the best thing. Easy walking distance to the patronas towers, monorail and the free city buses. We had a great time in KL and would not hesitate going again and using the same hotel.

Room Tip: We were on 17th floor and the room was perfectly adequate. We could just see the tip of the patrona...

The hotel is in a fantastic location right next to the Pavillion shopping and entertainment area and a short walk from the Twin Towers and KLCC park area. We had a room facing the Towers so enjoyed a lovely view and our room was very comfortable and large. The bed was excellent and the bathroom, while older in style, was very user friendly.

The staff were very helpful and friendly although the breakfast restaurant staff were a little warm-cool depending on the day (no major criticism, just an interesting observation).

The breakfast was enjoyable and there were many options as expected at an international hotel. We are vegan, and there were a number of options we could enjoy (although always a suggestion is to make sure what can be easily vegan, like baked tomatoes, have cheese on the side, not sprinkled on top). The chefs were also happy to whip up a lovely plate for us each, each morning with something vegan, such as mixed vegetables or sauted potatoes, which we really appreciated.

All in all a great hotel which I would absolutely stay at again.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the Towers would be the best option for enjoying the sights, especially at nigh...

This was the 4th time my family and I stayed at Novotel KL and we were not disappointed, as usual. The staff were polite and very helpful. There were some teething problems like the phone that didn't work but we made do with the phone in the bathroom - after all, we just needed to dial '0' :). We travel alot and Novotel has never let us down and we will always choose these hotels before considering others as they are very family friendly. Cleanliness was tops! Bed and bedding were fantastic. Towels were not as 'fluffy' as those we had in Novotel Canberra but they were fresh and clean. Best of all, the smiles were genuine.

Kudos to staff and keep up the great work!

See you again soon!

Stayed at The Novotel in May 2013. Brilliant stay. The rooms are lovely, staff are so polite and can't do enough for you. Food choice is excellent. It's very near to the Pavilion mall which is really good,especially the food court downstairs. It's also walking distance to the twin towers.Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Firstly, i would like to say how pleased i was to have my room upgraded to a junior suite. Unfortunately from there is wasn't so good, the room was old and tired and in need of refurbishment. The door to the adjoining room was opened during the night which was very alarming for me as a single female traveller but they did fix it when i brought it to their attention, they screwed the door shut. The premier level cocktails and canapés were nowhere near as good as the Novotel in bangkok where i had stayed the night previously. The wifi didnt work several times, i had to get their technician out to my room twice to fix the issue, they told me they were upgrading their system that night but it wasnt fixed the following day. I think with a refurbishment this hotel will be back to Novotel standard. The service was perfect as always.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review and feedback with regards to your stay with us. With regards to our room conditions, rest assured upgrading works are within our plans in the coming months. We have since upgraded our access points to ensure good signal is received throughout the hotel, although there may be some fine-tuning required from time to time to ensure that this signal is stable. Our IT team is always on it! We look forward to having you back with us.
