This is the 2nd time we've stayed at the Capitol, the last time was in November 2009, and we can tell that the hotel is 2 years older :) It's still all good, just not as pristine as it was 2 years ago. There was some evidence of carpets being refitted on the 11th floor in some rooms, so maybe the hotel is in the process of doing some refurbishment.
The first room we were offered was on the 6th floor, which transpires to be the smoking room. First we had to get clean cups for the inroom tea/coffee - the cups had been dishwashed but they definitely were not clean. And then the smell of smoke got to us, and we were moved to a room on the 11th Floor with a nice view of KLCC and the KL Tower :)
The thing that has really changed since 2 years ago is the breakfast. What was a poor excuse for a buffet breakfast in 2009 has been transformed to a full service western and asian buffet breakfast with a full selection of hot and cold dishes and with live chefs cooking eggs or Roti Chani. There's also some variation day to day. The only disappointment was the coffee - the stuff in the filter coffee jugs is pretty weak. They do have coffee machines that can make better coffee but you need to ask a staff member for that.
The hotel is still in the middle of the Bukit Bintang area, and its location really cannot be faulted.
