for the beginning I asked for non smoke room but, when I entered the floor, I feel a bad smell of humidity. When I asked the cause, they told me they had maintenance and its nothing special.
Anyway after 2 or 3 nothing changed.
The breakfast is fantastic and you can see cookers from different country cooking in front of your eyes with best materials.
The pool and gym also good.
The room condition and every other things related to room was perfect.

This place pretty much ruined my trip to KL.

A few things to note, all the shops advertised in the hotel guide are not open, infact, more than half have never opened.

arrived at 2pm - sorry no rooms ready yet, please have a cookie and we'll have something by 3pm - ok fair enough - Sit's down infront of reception
3.30pm - walk the 3m to the reception desk - "Are there any rooms ready" - Oh yes, here you are.... nice 5star service
3.35pm - get to room
4.15pm - call reception - still waiting for luggage to come up - arrived 20mins later

1 x Horrible night sleep
Bed ridiculously hard, but that's my preference so can;t really do much
Air Con has 3 power settings but only one noise level - Loud

Breakfast -
Have you ever had to wait 5mins or more to be seated for breakfast at a 5* Hotel?
You have to erquest Orange Juice as they don't keep it out
Ran out of Brown Bread, ask the chef, he comes back 5 mins later with white bread, Ask him again do they have brown, he looks at what he has and says white only.
Go to the omlette counter - mushrooms, peppers and tomato pleast. he looks down and is out of tomatoes - "sorry no tomatoes" what anywhere in the hotel?? doesn't even pretend to make an effort
tea arrives - cold and weak

11am - request new hotel room as A/C is too loud. " please let me have a listen in a few rooms so I can get something I can sleep in, when you're ready, here's my mobile number"
2pm follow up request, recpetionist " I've reserved you an alternative room, right next door to the one your in"??? shock horror just as bad
10.30pm, still no follow up from them, head downstairs to reception - "sorry no one knows anything about it!"
11pm - Night Duty Manager finally comes to the rescue and finds us a better room which had a seperate lounge/bedroom - Many thanks Afzal. Only oddity was that the bathroom has no main door and only 3/4 doors to the cubicles, so if you switch on the light or use the toilet, anyone with you gets woken up and enjoys any sounds and smells aswell.



Pool - Ridiculously cold and barely gets any sun
Taxi Rank - only pre booked or Hotels executive fleet(read epensive) cars.

I could go on, but it really is Terrible.

Room Tip: Avoid it, unless you like punishing yourself

We don't normally stay at Double Tree Hilton in KL, unfortunately it was a last minute trip and our usual hotel of choice was fully booked. The experience at Double Tree was pretty average. The buffet dinner was really dull, food was dry and uninspired. The toilet bowl in our room was clean but badly stained.

Staff at reception were cold and not very helpful. We were needing to extend our trip by another day and thought since we had already checked in, we would continue staying at the Double Tree. When we requested an extension, we were told that the hotel was fully booked. A couple of minutes later, my husband went online and managed to book us a room. So I'm not sure what was going on.

All in all, quite a forgettable stay. I wouldn't be recommending Double Tree.

This is our second stay at this wonderful hotel, & everything about it has risen in stature. We found the staff in envy way a pleasure & accommodating. The room & the amenities were outstanding & location could not have been better. The Ampang railway station was suburb for getting us to wherever we wanted to go at minimum cost. Simple conveniences such as the Jaya supermarket below, swimming pool & gym & guest lounges were as good as we've ever experienced. We will return in the near future.

The staff are well meaning but do not appear to be that well trained. They are not very efficient and forget things like bringing your bags to your room, or that they were meant to pass on presentations to our colleagues..... 'Presentations sir, no we definitely do not have those', 'No, sir, definitely no presentations', Whats that, sir', 'What are those on the shelf?' 'Oh, yes, those presentations'.... ?.

As to the lifts,....well, allow at least 20 minutes to get from your room to the lobby if the hotel is busy. That said, once you get to your room, you'll find it to be of a good size and well appointed. Take ear protection though - you'll need it if you turn on the air conditioning. The rooms are a contrast to breakfast which was both woeful in its variety and quality, with those dishes that were on hand often left empty.

Lots of great hotels in KL. This is not one of them. Go elsewhere!

Staff very helpful and accommodation very good. Was an enjoyable stay. I was attending a course in the hotel and it was all very convenient to stay in the same location. Check in and check out were very smooth. Was only a short walk to KLCC.

Stayed for 3D/2N with Doubletree's warmth and hospitality.

The experience started with 2 big yummy chocolate chips during check in. Our room was ready when we got there as we arrived late in the evening. Fast and prompt check in with the complimentary biscuits, though we felt it a bit odd that there seemed to be no bell boy or anyone who offered us to bring our luggage and escorted us to our room after they handed us the key...
It didn't bother us too much though, cause as we entered our Executive Suite, we felt amazed by how spacious the room and the bathtub were. Walk - in shower next to the bathtub was a great experience.

Separate living room and kitchenette (though not really equipped), work desk and complimentary high speed internet access for 2 laptops and 2 mobile devices.
The IT person on night shift didn't seem to know how to connect us to the wifi service though, hence as a return, we got them on complimentary after more than 2 hours struggling to get us the access to the wifi til midnight.

Personally, we thought that being so spacious, the room could use more furniture than what were already placed in room. But heard from a taxi driver when we went out to see the city during the day, that the hotel is new, then we considered it understandable.
I liked the bath amenities too, though it also seemed like the Management was really controlling the usage / cost of the amenities supply as it reflected by what their house keeping staff placed in each rooms. But being in an executive suite, we would expect that they would give us complete amenities without us having to call for the service to deliver us the mouthwash, cotton buds, bathrobes and bath gel. We stayed there for 2 nights and we always had to ask for those same things when we got back in our room after a long day exploring the city (except for shampoo, conditioner, soap bar were always placed already).

But besides those little so called "personal preference hick-ups", our stay felt fabulous as the staff was always smiling and accommodating. We had one of our best night sleep in the "oh - so - comfortable" bed and we had to make an effort to get up because of that!! :)

Another good point about this new hotel is that their lobby looks really grand with sparkling cold marbled flooring that reflected the lights all around the hotel. You could see some shops too at the hotel's surrounding (it's more like Swissotel hotel in Singapore where the hotel is located inside a mall so it's very convenient).
And the bar area has got very pleasant jazz live entertainment so we sat there for hours to drink.
We had access too to the Executive Lounge... Very nice place and great view!
During the day we went out to do our activities and the hotel provided us with a free shuttle service which was pleasantly welcomed by us and some other guests who went together with us inside the bus.

So, yes, the hotel is great, and with a little improvement on the little things here and there, would make it even better :)

Room Tip: Executive Suite with breathtaking view of the City
