“Comfortable room,affordable price”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

I'm quite a frequent customer of this hotel,stayed in their deluxe room and suite room before.For a clean-freak like me,the place is generally clean,and the stays were comfortable for me and my family. The price is not that expensive and affordable. The staffs' services varied,I have met one or two not-so-helpful staffs before,especially when I did a late check-in around midnight. They do allow late check-out if you inform them. The lake view is really nice. It is close to KLCC and Bukit Bintang. I enjoy the food (local chinese food by stalls/hawker) which can be found in the vicinity, in Tung Shin Road. Walking around the hawker stalls area could be dangerous,especially at night,so just keep an eye and be extra aware of snatch-thieves. I never had their breakfast or any meals before,so I could not leave any comments on that.

I had my wedding banquet in this hotel grand ballroom. The service was really disappointing. The food served was not fresh and my guests complained that the dishes had funny taste. The waiters were not well trained and my guests were furious because the waiters didn't serve them drinks after making some requests. It's either they totally forgot about my guests' requests, or they simply had just ignored it. I decided not to stay in their room because the room is quite old and the staircase as well as the walkway have a funny stench. Many beautiful promises being made were not kept and it is very disheartening to hear my guests complained so much about the banquet.

I will not come to this hotel again and neither will I recommend it to anyone else.

Stayed one night in this hotel and i won't go there anymore, What made me book in this hotel was their cheap prices also by the "lake" this hotel located far from KLCC and has small lake in the backyard.

Rooms on the street view are disaster they are right in-front of the bridge you will hear cars all night like if they are driving above your head so annoying plus i found a black spot in my pillow i called them to change it but no one came. The bathroom is weird it's like hostel bathroom but it was clean. I don't recommenced staying in this hotel at all.

Stayed in this hotel for one week gave me some experiences. First of all this hotel located in very risky location especially at nights. we had an accident at 8 pm when a motor cycle driver try to snatch my friends bag ,be careful when you are walking around this hotel. another problem is about distance to KLCC, it is around 3 Km, by taxi you have to pay around 9 RM( depends on traffic and taxi drivers honesty)-you can use bus to reach KLCC ,in this case you have to pay 1 RM for each person. but near 5 min walking is required to reach bus station. Unfortunately no metro station is near this hotel. nearest one is Ampang point in red line.
Receptions behavior was different,some of them were so kind and polite and some of them were not. Rooms service was okay and waiters was polite. Breakfast didn’t have any variety and it was not okay (it depends on different nationalities taste).another point which is good about this hotel is lake view.

Room Tip: Lake view Rooms are quiter and the view is so so better.dont use suites because in my point of view...

Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights 8-9 June 2013. Nice hotel. The view to the Petronas towers iis awesome. Rooms were ok. We stayed in the Superior or deluxe whatever the name is.

Breakfast was pretty ok. Similar set patterns daily. Location is a bit far off but has some good food joints in the Ampang area. Can travel on combo (MRT+Bus) from the city centre.

Nice pool for those who want to swim. No Bar though.

Wud recommend for families.

Room Tip: Value for money and good for family travel as it is safe and sound.

The hotel seems to cater for tour groups and has little to offer in therms of amenities. Room was musty and the buffet dinner the restaurant was disappointing. The receptionist who checked me in barely even looked up. Generally poor level of service.

Booked a 5 day stay at Flamingo By The Lake. The setting is great and very picturesque. Beautiful lake and wildlife, both fish, turtles and fish. But the hotel must be owned by someone who doesn't drink alcohol. There is no bar like in any other hotel we've been to in Asia, the Breakfast menu was pathetic, doesn't cater to Europeans at all. The Indian restaurant on the 5th floor doesn't serve beer or any other type of drink and reinforced my dislike of Indian food. It (the Hotel) was a nice place to stay if you want boring food, and nothing to drink.
To get to KLCC is a taxi ride, we paid about RM 15.00 to get there. The shopping was good for known brand products, very cheap for clothes, and especially at Ampang Point near the hotel, we bought a heap of stuff there, but forget it for electronics , I could buy better here in Australia even in the rip-off capital the Gold Coast. All in all not worth recommending. Pay a little bit more and stay closer to KLCC. Thumbs down on this one I'm afraid.

Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple
