Seeing the City

I travelled to Malaysia for New Year 2015 to visit my partner who is working at an International School. We met at the airport and then made our way into Kuala Lumpur. I had booked the Federal Hotel for 2 nights and we saw many sights. The Petronas Towers at night are spectacular and the hotel hospitality was top rate. Friendly staff and a good central location. While we were there, we had dinner at Dining in the Dark - a memorable experience, and visited the National Park. We had amazing weather and the streets at night come a-bustle with food stands selling all sorts of fragrant, and tasty food. Definitely worth the trip!

A great hotel in a fantastic location

The Federal Hotel is an excellent example of old world charm in a fantastic location in Bukit Bintang, adjacent to the food and market area in Jalan Alor. Service, courtesy and responsiveness of staff was supurb. The deluxe suites offer significantly more room, with two queen size beds per room. The rooms located on the poolside, as distinct from the street side, are a preferable option. We were travelling with family and 3 grandchildren, so walking distances and room size were very important.

Short Stay-cation

Had a short weekend stay over at Federal and got us rooms at level 12 which is quite a nice floor. Rooms are renovated and looks fresh considering the hotel's age. Breakfast was not particularly nice and lacking variety considering its around MY50 per pax.

Well located simple hotel

We have stayed in the Federal Hotel for our last 3 visits to KL because of its location (within walking distance from the SIN-KL coach office/station, shopping centres, local foodstalls, MRT lines & Chinatown night bazaar, etc). The hotel offers simple clean rooms with free wifi. From our past experience, we have learnt to ask for a room with an external view (rather than a room facing the internal wall) & at a higher floor (because of the noise from the karaokes, busy streets at night). The one-way main road facing the hotel is still experiencing heavy slow traffic because of the road works since our last 3 stays. So it is advisable not to take a cab from directly outside the hotel to avoid paying fares while staying in the stationary taxi. We had always book a room at Federal Hotel without daily breakfast in order to try the many variety of local food around the hotel (eg along Jalan Alor directly across the hotel, or at Chinatown, a short distance from the hotel).

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Try the delicious Chinese food at Restoran Overseas along Jalan Imbi (about 10 mins walk from hotel). Their signature dishes include roast pork (char siew) & peipa duck (roast duck) which requires at least 1 day advance order. Prices are fairly high though as compared with other local restaurant prices but they are worth a try.
