Built in 1957 to celebrate their Independence, it is in easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Rooms were of average size, a bit dated, but clean with all the items one would expect from a hotel of that standard. A good size pool. Breakfast gave a good choice but the food reflected on the guests, the majority were Asian....

We are history buffs and stayed in this first international class hotel in KL built in 1957 and were not disappointed. There were a lot of photos and artifacts in the lobby like a museum. Bed was too soft for me but rooms were very clean and of fair size. Staff and service were efficient. No real complaints.

My wife and I had 5 nights at the Federal Hotel and absolutely loved our stay there. This hotel is right in the middle of Bukit Bintang (the tourist area), and only one street away from the best street food and buskers you would find anywhere (the food street is called Jalan Alor). Within walking districts are the huge shopping...

Pool was great and friendly staff and awesome views of Petronas. Rooms were clean and comfortable, but I'm sure in this amazing city, you...

Federal Hotel is a older hotel, situated ring in the middle of Bukit Bintang. The KL Monorail is just down the road, and the area is busy most times of the day. Jalan Alor eating street is one block away. The room (I was upgraded however) was spacious, albeit a bit dated/old. No matter. Everything else was fine. The hotel...

It was a last second second decision trip to Kuala Lumpur, luckily this hotel was a good part of our 1 week stay at Federal Hotel. Breakfast was very complete, good variety and the breakfast area was very beautiful and interesting. Location was perfect at the heart of bukit bintang which most of the attractions, coffees and restaurants are around....

My husband and I stayed in this hotel in February we felt the Hotel in parts needed a little TLC. The first room they gave us was a little noisey but they kindly ungraded us to another room which was lovely but had no view. The breakfasts were excellent so much choice and of good quality. There were not enough...
