Great value city hotel

An oasis of peace in this bustling metropolis, Istana Hotel is the ideal hotel for families, couples and business guests looking for elegant accommodation and facilities. Located at the heart of Kuala Lumpur's popular Golden Triangle district, here you will be just a five minute walk from excellent shopping opportunities and a 10 minutes’ walk from the Petronas Towers. Relax in the tropical gardens surrounding the Greco-Roman style pool or enjoy a delicious meal in the fine dining Urban Restaurant before retiring to your classically colonial inspired, spacious guest room. For ultimate relaxation, visit the Sompoton Spa for a Javanese or Swedish spa treatment and leave feeling ready for another day of city exploration.

Excellent Service & Location!

Sydney, Australia

The staff at Hotel Istana were very friendly and helpful and it is located close to THE food street Jalan Alor (as well as other good things to see/do). Clean and comfortable rooms for a good price and we found the lounge area very friendly. We did not eat at the hotel - too many other great places to go!

Nice hotel

I arrived on 24th May, quite smooth when I checked in. That time I arrived at break fast time, so I only have a quick chat with front office. I didnt manage to ask about my sahur arrangement. After my break fast and meeting, i go to reception and ask regarding my sahur arrangement. But that time the guy a bit rude to me (i forgot his name). I ask him how is the sahur, and he said that i only entitled for 1 pax. (Im want to add another pax). He not even looking at me and say that if i want sahur just come down at restaurant at 3.45AM, but 1 pax only. I ask him i want to add another one. He keep mention that i only entitled for 1 (which i totally understood that, i just want to buy another 1). I end up, not go for sahur at Istana. Overall the hotel is good, except for him!
