I had again returned from a 2D21 stay at federal hotel it is an interesting stay. The check in was smooth though it was crowded . Belly Boy was so freindly dition and the auntie who make our beds and rooms were very friendly and wishes us morning and evening every time we returned and exited from our hotel. . As the room was for two we had to add another bed in for one of our companions the process was swift and the person who had came with the bed had automatically brought another set of toiletries without being informed. There were not a lot of choices for room service menu as most of the food could be found in Singapore or the food court at lot ten at a lower price. The hotel itself had two 'entrance' one was from the rear end lobby the other is the front door, it is a little hard to find the reception table as the 'entrance' is based on different floors. The ground and level one.There is also a few restaurants like Japanese, Chinese, Muslim and their revolving restaurant at the top of the hotel where diners could catch a 360 view of kl. The pricing (with reference to Singapore dollars) is relevantly reasonable. Location wise it is not too bad, as it is located at the heart of bukit bintang and there is lots of shopping mall like bejaya time square, pavillion and klcc twin tower all within walk-able distance. Travellers could also catch a monorail to Hang Tuah where a whole sale shopping mall Kenanga Wholesale City is located. This building consist a fair bit of Muslim products and is a must shop for our Muslim friends! One stop after Hang Tuah would be maharaja where our Chinese friends could go. It is also known as China town which sells handbags and tees from RM 25. Prices could be haggle. Or catching a meter taxi from bejaya time square could get you to this location easily, the drivers were friendly and were more than willing to introduce you to new places.There were two kinds of taxis one that goes by meter and the other which does not, for those who goes by meter there is a few taxi drivers who had the license of ' tourist ambassador driver'. They are drivers who are knowledgeable and is able to recommend places where the travellers wanted to go. Near by federal hotel is also a chocolate factory but due to the lack of time we had not had a chance to venture. When we had arrived, BB plaza is undergoing a renovation however the shops inside the mall were not affected. Travellers who stayed at federal need not worry about the lack of food as the streets are more or less about food. There is also another 'night market' like our china town and liang seah street. Just pass KFC towards the end of the road there is a huge an open air hawker. It has lots of food like seafood, bak ku teh etc comes at a reasonable price, many foreigners goes there at night. I would definitely book this hotel again
