  • Bukit Bintang is one of the liveliest places you will go to in Malaysia. Make sure you try the Syrian street food run by Syrian refugees! Do a round trip at night and you would see the great atmospher...  more »
  • Many people always was jammed by cars, but are interspersed with various racial, cultural and religious, are rich in the diversity of both shops and restaurants. Walking along Malaysia's vibrant, felt was exciting.

  • Was growing up in the city a far more modern than they were five years ago. How is not lost even now compared to the major cities of Japan. No, "momentum" in terms of "hot air", "power" is many times KL on not? I was surprised and had become a cosmopolitan, but of course the comfort and cleanliness become a match so far.

  • Rooms were big and view was awesome. Though dated and maintenance could be improved. The entire hotel smells of wood paint and only room A/C could take that away. Breakfast was good though limited options. Do book dinners especially room service before 8 pm as almost everything gets exhausted pretty soon. Hotel staff were very courteous and helpful. We could not get any free shuttles as well. I did not like the locality nearby. Looks pretty creepy at night and there have been instances of purse snatching and thieving even during daytime. Better to stay alert while taking a walk.
  • Rooms were slightly tired and there was a cigarette odor in our room. Interestingly it seemed to get stronger as the air con was turned up so not necessarily from people smoking in the room. The windows are very dirty which detracts from the view somewhat. This is likely related to the huge construction project that is underway across the road. Now on to the positives, the rooms are well equipped with fridges, a kettle and a separate lounge. The pool area is nice and relaxing and the gym is well equipped (only notable omission being a rowing machine). The staff here are excellent and very accommodating. The buffet breakfasts are generous however the food itself can be be hit and miss. As previously mentioned thtlere is currently a no construction project underway nearby but otherwise the location is excellent, being a 10m minute walk from a nearby night market and a 5min walk from the nearest train station. All in all very good value for money.
  • I read some of the reviews after I booked this hotel and I was a bit uncertain how it would go. I have been very pleasantly surprised.The check in was quick and very smooth. We arrived at 2pm and were in our room within about 10 minutes. We booked an executive club room and found it to be very comfortable. It is really nice to be able to shut the door to the bedroom so my wife can sleep in! The room is not new and flash with lots of marble and mirrors but it was clean (the housekeeping lady does a great job and has the most wonderful smile, she is always happy and welcoming) and in good condition. He gym is small but functional and was never crowded. The best part is the Executive lounge. The staff there are absolutely top shelf, you always feel like they are glad to see you. A relaxed breakfast with nice coffee was always a good start to the day. The evening cocktails was very nice and the food far more extensive than I expected. The beer was cold and the wine was of an acceptable quality. Thank you to all the staff in the lounge for making our stay so nice. The only down side was the lifts get a bit busy at checkout time. The location is an easy walk to everything we go to KL for, food, shopping and more food. If you decide to stay at this hotel do yourself a favour and book an executive club room, it is exceptional value for money. Thanks to all the wonderful staff, we look forward to our next stay.
  • Nice hotel. The breakfast spread was decent. Rooms were spacious. The only reason I gave 4 stars was that the room adjoining to us (people who stayed there made a lot of noise) and no proper sound proofing done, as one can clearly hear the noise. Rest was good overall. Hope Furama would look into this. Great experience overall.
  • Decent hotel nothing fancy. Food wasn’t great Buffet spread low on quality and service. Staff were courteous. Rooms were nice and simple. Only issue I had was with security. Taxi driver drove off with our suitcase though caught on camera, they were off no use to capture the license plate due to poor resolution.
