As this was our first trip to KL we were somewhat dubious after reading a few of the Istana reviews. What a lovely surprise when we actually checked in to a good sized room, very clean and comfy with a great view of the Petronus Towers. The bathroom was great, really spacious with a good sized deep tub and a seperate shower cubicle. Being short sighted it was really a big bonus for me to have the magnifying mirror on a swivel arm beside the wash basins. I was over the moon to be able to do my make up and actually see what I was doing for a change. The staff were great and arriving early was no problem. As the room was only supposed to be available from 2pm and we were there before lunch we were expecting to just lock away the luggage and go off and have lunch in the meantime but, we were checked in immediately no problem.
The hotel is very central, just a few minutes walk from BB and across the street from the monorail station which was really great. After 4 nights we were actually reluctant to leave and will definitely stay there again on our next KL trip.
