We read mostly negitive reviews of this hotel on Trip Advisor. However, we were to meet some people there and needed to stay for at least two nights. We upgraded one level above the least expensive double.
it is an older hotel, but in a very good area for shopping and observing ciity life. Our room was spacious with a wonderful king size bed with clean white bedding. it was well cleaned each day. We always found helpful people at the desk. Watch out for the people at the lower level desk, though. They work for a different company and are more expensive and manipulative.
We thought the breakfast was fine, in fact good, after we figured out where we could find everything we wanted. We also had a fun time watching a thunderstorm at the revolving restaurant on the top floor while having happy hour wine and appetizers.
We had three more nights to spend in KL after out Borneo trip, and chose to stay at the Federal, mostly because of the location and comfort.
We are in our 70s and try to stay in more or less local hotels.
