Hello all! Stayed at the PJ Hilton several times, have eaten there many many times, while as a resident as well as a visitor.

Rooms: 4 * Very comfortable and clean and modern. Spacious. Nice solid walls due to the fact it was built before pre-fab became the norm for hotel construction. My only beef: non-smoking rooms can reek of smoke due to really rude obnoxious visitors from countries where "No Smoking" is unheard of. The housekeeping needs to do a better job is airing out and deoderising the rooms.

Breakfast: No carotids as one writer groused about. No vena cavas or femorals either, but, a damned good international buffet. I mean this is MALAYSIA for goodness sakes - where you have Indian roti canai for breakfast, hor fun for lunch and nasi with a nice beef rendang for dinner. Oh, and a steak and potatoes if you wish. Seriously - nothing for Chinese?! There is always an entire table of Chinese food for breakfast AND lunch. Oh dear.

The location of this hotel, as has been pointed out, is not near the centre of KL, but a taxi ride to MegaMall is 8 ringgit; to Bukit Bintang is 15; to KLCC is 18. This location is perfect if your work is at the nearby universities or businesses in PJ or Subang Jaya. Perfect if visiting family in the residential areas around KL.

Nearby Amenities: Extended stay guests also have access to a supermarket and drugstore across the street and some actually first rate restaurants in the area. Try the Chinese vegetarian restaurant a few minutes' walk away. Also the biryani at the Indian Muslim shop next to the supermarket is superb. Banks, post offices, bakeries, pubs, liquor stores, clinics are all 2 minutes away by taxi at the PJ New Town Centre ( a bit of a misnomer - it WAS new in the '80's but it's a really neat place to people watch and have your breakfast in the mornings.)

You gotta understand Malaysia's history to understand why the food here is not typically Chinese (mainland), or typically Indian, or even typically North American "Western". It's unique! Enjoy the difference!

Room Tip: Choose rooms in the renovated wing. Non-smoking, away from the elevators.

Dear pluckycanuck,

It is always a pleasure to have you at Hilton Petaling Jaya! Thank you for your very supportive comments and we appreciate the positive feedback about our hotel and location. With regard to the carotid; apart from the cold salad bar, these food items are unavailable as we have a limited demand for them. However, they can be made available upon request. Please let us know, and we will ensure that you are served adequately.

We look forward to seeing you again in the near future and continue to be at your service.

Kind regards.

My first stay at PJ was in 2005. Since that time I have been to PJ Hilton at least 6 to 7 times each year and I always happy to be there. The improvement of the rooms after the renovation is amazing and the new wireless system is brilliant. Even my familiy enjoyed the stay in your nice hotel last July!
Special thanks to my favourite staff....Shaziera, Linda, Hasma and Walid!!!

I´ll come back
Thomas

good! and thanks! but the location is a little bit far away from klcc or twin tower. however adjacent restaurant are good and diversive. if the hotel can provide free wifi / internet connection would be great, other than the current way of connection "charging for extra fee". th breakfast is also good, but seems not suitable for chinese, i found it is hard to find something proper to eat.

Dear Brian L,

Thank you for sharing your recent stay experience with us. Hilton Petaling Jaya is just a stone’s throw away from the Asia Jaya LRT (Light Rail Transit) station; which gives you direct access to KLCC in just 20 minutes.

We are delighted to read that you found the breakfast buffet to your liking. We also have a Chinese corner at our buffet that you can enjoy.

You will be glad to know that WiFi is now complimentary at all public areas and restaurants. We also offer room rates that include WiFi usage.

We look forward to seeing you again.

Kind regards.

Overall very good. Rooms are newly renovated, clean and good. Bathroom is cleared well, and good breakfast. Location also convenient, close to LRT station, with supermarket and money exchange nearby. Good cake in the cafeteria :)

The hotel is below the 5 stars level. Not well maintained.
Rooms: they are less than basic. We found a problem in the toilet that turned it into a mess and when we reported to the housekeeping he had a look and said tomorrow we will make it. This was 6:00 pm and not late at night.
The breakfast: not including enough carotid for international visitors. They focus more on the local taste and items. The coffee was very cold and the staff weren't friendly as we came late to breakfast due to our jet lag.
The location: very far away from any attraction point and nothing to be done in the area around. It takes almost 30 minutes to be in down town by taxi.
Overall the hotel doesn't give you the glimpse of Malysia visit and unfortunately that this is my first visit.

Dear Laila H,

Please accept our sincerest apology for your recent experience. Your feedback is much appreciated. We will do our level best to ensure that our products and services meet the high standards expected of our brand.

We have just completed the refurbishment of all our bedrooms, executive lounge and meeting spaces. The soft refurbishment of the lobby and lobby lounge should be completed by the end of this year.

Petaling Jaya is popularly known as the thriving suburb of Kuala Lumpur and is ideal for those who do not want to stay downtown or wish to avoid heavy traffic. With LRT stations located within walking distance of the hotel, KL is easily accessible – just 20 minutes away.

Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to see you return to Hilton Petaling Jaya once the refurbishments have been completed, at which time we are certain you will have a better experience.

Kind regards.
