Okay, I stayed in the hotel during Sepang 2013 F1 race, which left me not so much choice - all the hotels were full. So I booked Furama Hotel as it was one of the last hotels available at sane price.
Well, 1st of all, it's a non-smoking hotel. I mean totally. Ok, it's my own fault, I should have read it first.
Secondly, it has a pretty good location. There is some construction going around, but it has a variety of VERY COOL Chinese restaurant just on the opposite side of the street. And that really was nice and delicious. I used to live in Shanghai, trust me:)
I don't really think it's hotel's fault, but during the race weekend, as I thought, race programmes (schedule of the events on track) must be available in each corner or at least in each hotel. No way. I asked the front-desk manager for it - but no luck. But again, it's more about quite poor race organization in KL this year.
Finally, despite being located not in the "golden triangle", it's quite close to everything you need, Several shopping malls in and around Times Square, transportation, etc. There are issues with elevators, when the hotel is full you can wait for one forever. That needs to be fixed somehow. Apart from that, a good choice for the money.
