This was my first time in Istana and I most certainly will be going back. What a fab hotel, good value for money, excellent location, right next to Bukit Bin Tang shopping centre and 15 mins from the Petronas Towers Istana is a ideal hotel to stay at. The staff are extremely helpful, caring and welcoming. The lobby smells lovely and the lounge is a great area to sit at night. I stayed in a standard room and the room was clean and big. The room was slightly dated and the bathroom can do with some renovation but size was great. We also had a room with a view of the Patronas Towers which was fab.The double sinks, bath and seperate shower was great especially when to girls are travelling together. There are monorail station is also a few mins walk from the hotel. There are many eating places around the hotel and the hotel restaurant serves beautiful good. Cocktails in the lounge are fab and the entertainment is also very pleasing. I also did some excursions from the hotel which were also great (could cost cheaper if booked from outside the hotel but due to lack of time went through hotel). Nirman one of the workers on the front desk was extremely helpful.
Having travelled with my sis who stayed at the Mandarin on a previous visit to Kuala Lumpur she also agreed the location of Istana is better. I would highly reccommend this hotel for its great location, friendly staff and value for money. Maybe the bathroom needs some renovation.
