Stayed at Capitol in mid January.
Was offered a room on higher floors facing Times Square. Excellent view and no disturbance.
The hotel is well located surrounded by Shopping malls ( specifically the IT shopping mall which is across the road). It is located within the street next to MELIA hotel.
Behind the hotel, is a atream of Chinese massage parlours where you can avail a massage at reasonable price after a tiring day . The prices are fixed, so no bargaining and the masseurs do not cheat either.
Good eatries, specifically the Food street ( Jlan Alor) which is just across the hotel.Indian food available at the next building.
The front desk seems to be less trained and under manned. I encountered a few guests requesting for rooms for the day. the lady at the reception could not comprehend what they were trying to say. Ultimately the guests walked away( a loss of business for the hotel that could be avoided).
The F&B staff is superb. Well knowledgeable and excellent service.
I was particularly impressed by the Breakfast Chefs. Their service attitude was so good, it could put any other hotelier to shame.
The rooms are medium sized, neat, clean with appropriate amenities.
Very few TV channels. However after a tiring day, who cares.
The hotel does not have a pool. In case you looking for a pool, use the Federal Hotel next door which belongs to the same parent chain as Capitol Hotel
The hotel is not far from Petaling street ( china town ) and Central Market. You could walk down 25 mins or take a cab for 15 RM or 7RM by meter
Be cautious of cabbies hailed thru the bell desk. They charge almost 4 times that of other local cabbies available across the road. Seems to be a racket involving the bell desk and cabbies.
Many local cabbies refuse to intrude this queue opposite the hotel fearing outlash. So dont bother. Just walk a few meters across the road and hail a metered cab.
Overall loved the hotel, its location , ambience, Service ( other than front desk).
