I stayed a single night as a solo traveller on 2 separate occasions. Room size varies with booking type. An old city hotel constantly renovated to keep up with times. Sound in house amenities pool has city high rise view & a changing room. Breakfast not included & upon request. Central location ensures whatever hotel lacks you'll find a short... More

Unfortunately we only stayed for 1 night at this wonderful hotel. The hotel is beautiful. We arrived at 7.30AM and the lady at the front desk told us that our Family Room would be ready in 1 hour. In the meantime we could have breakfast in the restaurant in the hotel. She gave us our room no. so we would... More

We stayed 5 nights on BB basis in a superior room. Our initial experience at check in was unsatisfactory. Despite requesting an early check in, as we were traveling with a toddler and our flight arrived early, the hotel could not give us a room. There wasn't 1 free room (out of 409) which fulfilled our requirements - a double... More

If you are in KL for a quick shopping trip I would recommend Federal Hotel due its strategic location. There's good range of shopping malls within 10 mins walk and a lots of food outlets, restaurants and pubs as well. Attended a 2 days conference at the hotel and stayed for 1 night in the newer Merdeka Wing. The hotel... More

I stayed this before many years ago and this time they have made some changes to the hotel such as the dining places, free WiFi in the room and etc which is good. The reception was polite and fast checking in for me. My superior room is quite room for a five star hotel with traditional design. The room air-conditioning... More

The room that was assigned to us was a small room without any window opening. So air circulation was via aircon. Location of the hotel is central, near the night market but there is some construction going on on the street nearby which further choked up the narrow street. Hotel staffs were generally courteous and attentive, wifi adequate and breakfast... More

Dirty everywhere, sheets go with stains/ holes. We booked triple room type and it ended up that they don't have any triple room and we have to stay a "bigger" twin room with an extra bunker without any towels nor even water. Cockroaches in fridge, broken socket, bad wifi...I have nothing to say with a 3/4 stars hotel. It's the... More

Federal Hotel is a gem, You should stay there. Located on Jalan Bukit Bntang, near banks, cafes, shopping centres and even a 7-11, Federal Hotel is worth the visit. The revolving restaurant on the 10th floor serves delicious food and Kon-Tiki restaurant has great buffets and a la carte menus too. The room is clean, neat and the cleaner was... More

The best thing about the Federal Hotel is its location right on Bukit Bintang and close to all major shopping centres and direct access to Jalan Alors, KL's main hawker shopping street. The hotel itself is good. Room was comfortable. Bed was restful and shower was excellent. There was no view from my room - just a brick wall, but... More
