  • 1.8

    The hotel is excellent in many ways. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and comfortable. It's near to the shopping mall and MRT.

    My only complaint is that the shower area is not clean enough and the toilet bowl wax stain which I feel the Housekeeping staff did not brush it when the Guess check out.

    The bed was enormous. The breakfast was lavish and various, a true gastronomic experience

    i could not enter in my room before 14, even though i had written that i would have arrived at 11 a.m. (intercontinental night fly). I had to complain heavily and to wait almost 20 minutes before they managed to find the room that i had booked and accepted to give it to me - had it been for them, i had to doze off in the hall for 3 hours, with my room booked but not available...

    Big bed, good internet, big desk to work, very luxuriuos bathroom.

    I was unimpressed with the choice of tv channels. there was no hbo, hbo signature, no starworld etc. Traveling around the world and thus spending many jet lack hours in bed, a good choice of tv channels I find belongs to a international high standing hotel as Nikko.

    Room was upgraded because the standard room was full.

    The driver from the shuttle bus is trying to reap you off by selling you a van trip from hotel to airport. He was smart to ask when you go back and time. Then, he will propose the van to you and persuade you to use his service cause he will get a commission out of it. When we check out from the hotel, he was waiting outside and quickly snatch us away while we tried to use the normal taxi. We decided to use his friend van service from hotel to the Sentral train/bus station which is also metered fare. Upon paying the fare, he ask for RM10 more for the luggage and extra people on the van which was not discussed or agreed. I thought we just pay the meter fare and not any additional as he like. He apologize for not letting us know earlier. :-(

    Hotel staff are very pleasant and helpful.

    The pillows smells bad - like someone's sweat. The towels are hard and not so clean. Otherwise everything's fine.

    We were welcomed warmly by the hotel staff. All questions were answered willingly and politely. Choice of good restaurants, with food available at all hours. Very comfortable room with all amenities. A subway station (very clean and safe) was within a short walking distance from the hotel which enabled us to reach many different areas of the city.

    Nothing whatsoever to complain about.

    Everything. Staff and services are great, location cannot be better and it's a very good value for your money.

  • Family with children

    I booked the club room due to my kids. The picture for the club rooms showed a big bed in the room. What you see is what you get. The bed was big enough for my kids age 13 & 7, me and my wife. Value for money and its only 5-8mins walk to KLCC.

    Although is very near to KLCC but no view for it as had been block by high rise building.

  • Older travelers

    The concierge service was outstanding. No request was too difficult they spent half an hour helping us find a bus trip back to Singapore and booking it for us.

    I really enjoyed my stay there.

    The spa was very nice.

    The front desk lady was not friendly at all. I asked for twin bed and she tells me only king is available. After making a face, she looks into availabilty of twin and makes me wait for half an hour without any drink... ( I arrived at the hotel at 11pm). The bell boy came and finally escorted me to the room - the front desk lady never turned up herself for assistance. Other staff were friendly but not proactively willing to serve.

    The Hotel upgrade our room automatically.

    None that I can recall.

    Nicely clean room. friendly staff, reasonable price.

    An opinion letter about this hotel, a guest who stayed at my room was left and not collected. One guy's cooking egg (breakfast) was terrible.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The facilities/services are of a top class hotel should be, Catering for all types of people from different backgrounds can be daunting but you have created a good balance ocnsidering you are at the centre of KL.

    The information clerk (line 1 ) coud be a bit more polite at all times,
