The hotel is set in a lovely location surrounded by it's own garden parkland and the interior of the rooms and public areas are spaciuos and well maintained. The staff are super friendly and very obliging but sometimes things get mixed up in the translation of languages as my wife found out when ordering a jamiesons irish whisky and diet coke. She originally received a can of normal coke which we sorted out but the waiter advised that the jamiesons was still being "made" ,which seemed strange at the time but everything became apparent when an "Irish Coffee" arrived at the table. The menus are quite varied and give a good range of selections even if some choices do not make it up to pre-conceived expectations. The "authentic french onion soup" didn't do it for us but that was about the only disappointment. The local selections were excellent especially the "beef rendang" and "prawn sambal", both on the list at the buffet breakfast and really set the day off to a firey start. Putrajaya is, we've been told, Malay for "new city" and has been built to house government departments so is a little like Canberra in Australia but with absolutely fabulous architecture. One of the mosques looks as if it has been made of stainless steel, it glitters in the sun, amazing. Most of the other buildings are very unusual and a credit to the planners. It's well worth a couple of nights stop over between flights as its only 30 minutes or so from KL airport so you don't have to travel all the way into KL City and get caught up in the frenzy if you don't want to.
