Federal Hotel Kuala Lumpur

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I visited the Federal Hotel , Kuala Lumpur recently to discuss details for my daughter's engagement . I chose this hotel which is an iconic and historical landmark and which has since undergone renovation & upgrading over the years because I have had pleasant memories when I was a guest there with my family on many occasions especially during Christmas & New Year. Upon arrival ,we were greeted by Mr Joseph Selvan the Director of Sales & Business Development and his assistant Mr Ramesh. We adjourned to the Kontiki Restaurant for a buffet lunch where there was a wide array of Asian & Continental favorites. The ambiance was great and the service was superb. Federal Hotel is one of the rare hotels which value senior citizens by providing a 50% discount for their buffets & hi-tea. After our meal we got down to business and had a detailed discussion. We chose the Skyroom on level 15 as the venue to cater for our family & close friends of around 80 to 100 guests. The hotel also has a fine dining Revolving Restaurant where you can have a 360 degrees view of the surroundings.If you are into Chinese Cuisines , the Dragon Palace is a must visit as the food is excellent and the decor is a thing of beauty with the legendary dragon motifs on the walls and pillars befitting of the grandeur of the Chinese Imperial Court symbolizing power, strength & good luck . For tourists looking for a reasonably priced hotel at an excellent location, Federal Hotel is strategically located within walking distance of shopping,dining and the entertainment hub of popular Bukit Bintang .

Second time staying there. Paid a bit more for bigger room. Room is nice enough though it does not have a bathroom scale. We like the big bathroom. TV program has variety but not enough channels. One of the day, we noticed bedsheets has stains and we asked them to change it. They did it quickly without fuss. Front desk was helpful. Hotel location is nice and near food and shopping.

Hotel staff were great, from when you walked into the hotel until you left. I had an older room but was very pleasant, had all the things you need in a room. Walking distance to the street vendors and Low Yat Plaza.

Great services, great food, excellent room. All worth it. I love this hotel so much. It's pleasure, very convenient, Breakfast is amazing. Recommended hotel to all of you guys who's traveling to Kuala Lumpur.

i had stayed 3 times in this hotel,i can say it is a nice hotel ....but some of the staff is really rude and unfriendly but that is minority......there is this 2 staff that is wonderful their name is ella and arash.....both of them are wonderful.....i hope i will see them again in this december......service staff from breakfast site is very unfriendly no smile on their face only the chef are are wonderful and friendly.....other than that this is anice place to stay....i was in this hotel last december,february and may....

This hotel is located at a very strategic place in middle of attractions. The behind street is of food and malls and other attractions. The massage parlours are walking and TV tower are very close. The shopping market is just walk in place.

Location wise you couldn’t pick a better hotel than this, right in the heart of KL. The hotel in its self may be old compared to the new builds but I’ll tell you one thing it’ll compete with any other hotels hands down. The rooms are of very high standards in line with rest of the hotel, breakfast was actually really nice and enjoyable something for everyone. If I ever come back to Kuala Lumpur it’ll definitely be at the federal 👍

We arrived at midnight and were still checked in very quickly. The room had a noisy AC so we called reception and were moved to a bigger room with no issues. Great service and the perfect location! Bukit Bintang has everything you are looking for in KL, highly recommend this hotel.

Been here twice now and always great to stay.we were in the Merdeka wing of hotel which was really new and spacious. Breakfast buffet was sensational with a mixture of foods. Easily accessible to places within Bukit Bintang. Friendly staff, great pool and overall highly recommended.

Location couldn't be better as it is centralized and surrounded by malls. Hotel is a bit aged but clean and a tad bit overpriced. Service staffs can be a bit jaded and food is average. I won't return considering what you can get online for the same price.
