This is my second stay and both times I have found the service and facilities to be really good. As a short stopover hotel it has plenty of facilities; comfortable rooms, pool, in house restaurants and is situated in a great area for shopping and the wonderful China Town eateries.

Also there is a HopOnHopOff bus station just behind the hotel near the monorail station just about 10 minutes walk from hotel. This is the only place I...

When I was a little boy, the Federal Hotel was THE hotel in Kuala Lumpur! Considering the fact that it was the first hotel of international standard in this country, it is not hard to believe.
