My husband and I work in KL. But, every Christmas and Chinese New Year we return to KK to be with our family. Last Christmas we dined in a new hotel and it was a disastrous. Then came CNY and we decided to go for Hilton. Thank you for the great service, buffet and lion dance

I stayed at Hilton for 4 days with friends and family. As this is a 5 Stars hotel, my first experience with Hilton wasn't as great as what i expected. The environment is nice and clean. But there is always something very essential missing in the room, for example cotton buds,

Hi there, Just wondering what the charge is for laundry service?
Go to a local laundry. There are plenty nearby and they are very cheap.

If you are looking for the famous Tg Aru beach, so sorry to inform that the beach is not operational in terms of there are no facilities anymore. Still waiting for the local government to set up new plans for the beach. If you plan to go there just to have a stroll, the distance is about 6km from the hotel.

I don't believe that guests are able to purchase access into the lounge. It's a benefit of an executive room.

Yes they so offer connecting room, they got swimming pool at the top and they offer city view.. You can try Shangrila Resort at Tanjung aru if you prefer you beach and sunset view. Le Meridien and Hyatt also can try they do offer city view and you can see sunset view from your room. They do also located within city area, near to some city spot.

Hi Yee Ling, Thank you for inquiring. Our king size beds are 200cm (L) x 180cm (W). For your comfort, we would recommend adding an extra bed at an additional cost of RM140nett per bed/ night. However, this is only applicable to the Twin Executive Premium Room type and depending on availability. Thank you.

"Waterfront views"
"Splurge for an executive lounge room, 9 or 10 floor are the best"
"Closer to the elevators as the corridors are very long"
"Suite room is spacious"
"Try asking view to a city room, as other angle (lobby side) actually facing the hill & also construction site."
