Enjoyable stay

What can I say but just an amazing experience from Shangri-la as always. Spacious rooms and great buffet spread. Attentive staff always at hand to ensure you have a pleasant stay. Only suggestion if the rooms can be better lighted.
Hotel is walking distance to KLCC and Hard Rock Cafe.


Not a bad hotel in comparison to other central KL options. Very busy with families. Buffet restaurant is very busy, noisy, lots of kids and terrible service. La Fite restaurant nice but opening time is 7pm.

Beautiful hotel, Great Value, Best breakfast

We are just checking out the hotel and we inly staid here for one night. It’s our honeymoon and they upgraded our room without our request. The hotel is amazingly maintained and very beautiful. We had a request to change our bed sheet at our arrival and they didn’t hesitate to send housekeeping staff in under a minute to change it and offered us to change the room for us if we like to which was not necessary. The service is absolutely 5 star, all staff are friendly, nice and helpful. We loved the security at check-in and the fact that elevator needs card to go up.
Don’t, Don’t miss the breakfast. Absolutely one of the best we have ever had. Variety of Oriental, Hendi, Arabic and western choices. You won’t be disappointed at all, the value is super great. By the way I loved how elevator floor announcement bell sound, cute and victorian :).
Thanks for the great stay.
