We are booked to stay here for our 7th trip to KL. we once tried a different hotel and very much regretted it. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. We always found staff to be very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect if you want cheap shopping, walking distance to China town, one block over is the best street food with fantastic...

I've been staying at the Federal Hotel for years and will probably continue to do so - it's not the flashest place, the most luxurious etc... but it's clean, great staff, centrally located and secure and so would recommend it for a few nights stay.

The only downside was that the hotel was an hour car ride from the airport. The hotel was in the main shopping district with Gucci in every corner. location was great. There was a street food market just in the street behind the hotel which was about a 5 minute walk, but even then there were restaurants and other places...

Our Merdeka Wing room stay at Federal hotel was very pleasant. Very reasonable hotel at the heart of Bukit bintang, minutes away from Low yat Plaza, Jalan Alor, Time square, Sangei wang mall. We liked the services and facilities of the hotel. I wish to stay here again during my KL visit.

I am a frequent flyer to KL and Federal Hotel was unexpected, in a good way. Despite the old yet quaint lobby area, I was warmly welcomed by the hotel receptionist and was given a room at the Merdeka Wing (Highly recommended, please do request) I was surprised that the room was sleek and modern. It was comfortable, spacious and...

My experience of my stopover in KL was tainted by our stay at the Federal Hotel. I appreciate that the hotel is old but that does excuse the hairs in bath (from previous people), and mould on plastic mat, tiles and basin in the bathroom. I wore my thongs in the combined shower/bath as it was so dirty. The cleaners...
