“Bad toilet!”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

I went to De Palma just to use the public toilet but even the public toilet was terrible! Tissue on the floor, black dust on toilet seat and the water bidet was running non-stop. There are 4 toilets and 3 of them are dirty! Not good for the first impression. At the end, I just wash my hands because of holding the toilet door as I felt curious about the place. I found that supermarket nearby is better than the De Palma's. I'm not sure whether I want to try staying in the hotel. I feel doubtful with the cleanliness about the other area as well.

Dad has to stay at this hotel for work related purposes and we decided to tag along since it was only for a night. Usually we put up somewhere else if there's an extended stay in KL. So I didn't have much expectations coz it was just a place to rest shower n catch some sleep.

Staff were friendly and polite. Rooms were no longer carpeted but with Pergo flooring so that made it feel like home a lil. Beds were not too firm but pillows were too soft. They also did not provide a floormat so after a shower you had nowhere to rub dry your feet on. Room service and housekeeping were good. They checked to see if our requests were satisfactorily met.

However when I entered the room, I kept saying that the window must be open coz the traffic was SO LOUD :/
Dad checked and he said windows are perfectly shut. Couldn't sleep well that night coz of the traffic noise. I was at Room 420.

In the morning, I realized that the windows were ajar ever so slightly and I pushed to close it with some difficulty. Sure that helped muffle the traffic noise a bit but it was still too loud for me. Maybe it's just me but I like my rooms quiet shhhhhhhhhh

Breakfast was decent enough too.

One odd thing I thought though was that the surau (lil mosque) was directly opposite the pool on the 3rd floor :)

So to sum it up, if I'd have to return, I'll check the windows and perhaps ask for a room not facing the street side!

Book a room there since have to attend a wedding, check in were very slow. The room really needs a upgrade. Cleanliness out of the questions, there are hairs on the bed, the pillows have stains on them. Call the housekeeping for towels, after an hour not receiving them, call again then went down to receptionist to asked for towels, they said it will be send up. NEVER GET IT.
We decided to check out. Its pointless to go to a hotel like that even it boast its tagline as a muslim friendly hotel.

Room Tip: Have no tips whatsoever...

Not a good place to do ur meeting.banquet service is very low. Food for dinner is bad . No selection. Lots of trainees around. Lacking of supervising. Do not take the syariah package. Just a waste of money

De palma is a good hotel specially for muslims. Clean and tidy . I think its islamic concept has made some people to give untrue and unfair reviews about this hotel.
