“Good value but not everything works well”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

I stayed at the Blue Wave for a conference. On the positive side, the room was fine, clean and spacious, the bed very comfortable, good shower pressure and nice bathroom, good pool area, hotel located near banks and a shopping mall. On the negative side, the bar is not very popular and lacks atmosphere, the hotel cannot change money or accept charge backs to the room, the breakfast is extensive but it is hard to find a table free, the treadmills in the gym need maintenance as their speed varies unpredictably and they are probably dangerous.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that does not face the mosque, as the call to prayer at 5.30 am may disturb some p...

I was at the Grand Bluewave for a conference. For the price, honestly it's good value. The room was quite large, bed reasonable standard with good linens, bath towels decent quality and wifi (paid extra) performed well.

My room rate included breakfast and wifi. The breakfast was average in quality and the service has plenty of scope to improve. I found the room service dinner options quite limited. And the coffee shop in the lobby was terrible - service and quality.

Positives are the price, comfortable (refurbished) rooms, secure, friendly staff.
Negatives are the location (unless you are here for business or the mosque adjacent), limited room service options, lack of a decent restaurant.

All things said, I paid a reasonably good price for what was delivered. It's not the Ritz but it's also not priced as such. Good value if you need to be in this area. For those visiting - be aware, this is a LONG way from anything touristy except for the Blue Mosque. Stay in KLCC if you want to be in the tourist hub.

Located in the city centre of Shah Alam, this hotel is popular for social and business functions. Unfortunately, it is not convenient for guests who want to do shopping as the malls are quite a distance away. The hotel is great with excellent facilities: comfortable rooms, good views and clean. For drivers, the basement car parks provide ample spaces but the narrow entranc can be quite challenging. Visitors from other states may find this hotel suitable as a base from which they can visit the busier Kuala Lumpur city and nearby attractions in Klang and Putrajaya.

Great hotel located in the city centre of Shah Alam. The room was spacious and newly refurbished. Very clean, comfort and of course safe. The amenities are quite better compared with some hotels in the area. The view of green field near hotel and magnificent Blue Mosque make it more interesting to stay in. Exclusive and clean swimming pool. Jakuzzi and steam room also not bad. The buffet breakfast is amazing with a lot of choices international / local dishes. Pleasant friendly staff. There is a 3 different malls near by for shopping.

Room Tip: Suite room was nice with living hall and at corner side. There is a few differents floor - enjoy to...

Check in 24/09 late everning, receptionist not freindly (maybe due to tiered). Room quite old design. WiFi only available upon request. Suitable for short distance stay for business purposes. Breakfast just simple nothing special. Check out 25/09 early morning after breakfast. Not recommended for leisure vacation stay.
