Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur
Ranked #5 of 350 Hotels in Kuala Lumpur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2012

This hotel has been around for a long time and it shows no sign of aging.

The lobby is spacious and gives the guests a very welcoming feel upon arrival. Service is good.

Room is nicely decorated.

However, this hotel is not in the Bukit Bintang area, so you need to take taxi if you need to go shopping. Opposite the hotel there is TGIF.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms have a view of KL city.

By far, Shangri-la KL is one of the best hotels I've ever been to in my entire life.
The staff are really friendly and helpful. The room are really spacious, luxurious and comfortable.

The breakfast is a must have, good variety of choices from all over the world. The fruits are extraordinary.

The location is great, within walking distance to subway station and the Petronas.

Do I want to visit it again? certainly yes.

Room was great, service was great, Breakfast was outstanding, Pool could have been a little bigger but it was nice. The Gym was above average for a hotel. The gym had all types of machines, including a smith machine, a rowing machine, a heavy bag, and a good range of dumbbells. Authors bar had a wonderful view of the area and was reasonably priced(by Singapore and U.S. standards). Valet parking was reasonable. The staff were exceptionally helpful...

Stayed here before and after a beach excursion to Tioman. Everything was what you'd expect of a Shangri La hotel. Nice clean rooms, deluxe and very comfortable. Good room size and comfortable bed. Quiet. Nice bathrooms with all the amenities. Bathrobes, lots of towels. Prompt responses from housekeeping. Definitely a 4-5 star experience.

Only thing that I didn't like was the hair dryer with a very short cord fixed to the desk drawer. Hard to use for women.

Things I really liked: free internet, very friendly lobby staff, lots of complimentary bottled water, extremely helpful concierge desk.

The gym was very well equipped with a great selection of equipments. Nice outdoor pool. Love the cafe--great pastries, chocolates and desserts. Across the street was Starbucks and various restaurants. Short walking distance to subway trains and the Petronas.

Highly recommended.
