Hotel run down

We stayed for 3 nights and had 4 blackouts. A couple times it took a while before someone would come to fix it. Location is good, lots of food outlets. The room we got was rundown.

More han expected

The Federal was great. Great staff, clean rooms, comfortable bed. I was able to relax and rest after 5 days of intense sports activity in Kuala Terengganu. I stayed in a near by hotel a couple of years ago and expected Federal to be similarly average hotel. It was a very pleasant surprise as the hotel and room were great.

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!
