My wife and I stayed in the Palace of the Golden Horses for a week in January via RCI, and we really had a good time. The staff was very friendly and professional the whole week, from the reception to the repair man (one of the toilets was running, it was repaired within half an hour f.i.). We where upgraded to a suite, which was very spacious; it had a large bathroom and a smaller one (with another toilet); I read some remarks regarding the furniture; the furniture is not a modern style. I assume it is Malaysian style, but it was good and functional, no complaints. We went to the Japanese restaurant twice; very good food, a main course for USD 12, on Saturday a wonderful buffet for USD 20; by the way, a lunch or dinner in one of the many restaurants in The Mines costs USD 1,5 to 5. The swimming pool was fine, during the week it was quiet, in the weekend it was crowded, but if you get there before ten, you have a bed (although there is space for more beds...). The horse races are across the road; we went there on a Sunday; it was quite an experience to see the crowd cheering and yelling, even to the televisions, when a race in Macau was going on (won USD 150, I bet on the horse with the nicest name, Great Tiger).
There are shuttles to The Mines and to Kuala Lumpur City Center a couple of time a day; KLLC really is the center of KL. We were disappointed in the prices in the shopping malls, though: European prices. I had to go last week to Washington and visited Leesburg Premium Outlet, much better deals there.
Overall we can recommend this hotel; we have already booked another week next year.
