“Third visit. Great position. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

I always enjoy staying at the capital. The reception staff are very helpful. The rooms a reasonable size and the breakfast is good. Close to many shopping malls and night life. Thomas , Peter and roll cannot be more helpful and friendly. The rest of reception are very efficient and booking in takes only a few minutes. If any of the hotel staff read this, I had the kangaroo pins.

Having been to KL many times, this was our first stay at this hotel. An inexperienced traveller to KL might find the location a bit dirty but don't be put off by this. The hotel itself is well maintained and the staff very attentative to your needs. The hotel does not have a pool and the breakfast is extra (we chose to eat elsewhere). Would stay here again as it's very good value for the rate.

A group of us stayed for 2 nights during labour day weekend. The hotel is located in Bukit Bintang which is great for shopping. There is an entrance to Sungei Wang just beside the hotel. Lots of eateries beside the hotel for breakfast & a few steps away from Low Yat IT Mall & Jalan Alor food street. Walking distance to Pavilion, and other shopping malls along bukit bintang area. A taxi ride of about 15 mins to Mid Valley Shopping Mall.

The hotel did a good job in blocking noise from outside the hotel, but not the noise in between rooms. Throughout our 2 nights stay, we could hear doors banging and people's conversation early in 4am+. Seems like partying in the room or preparing to leave. We thought maybe we stayed at lower floors, below 5th. So if you are a light sleeper, just be prepared.

The cleanliness, amenities, toiletries are acceptable. Take note that, as this is a no frills hotel, there is only a pair of slippers for each room even though it is a TWIN room. And no toothbrush set, only a bottle of shampoo & 2 soaps. There are iron & ironing board, no problem with WIFI connection. We were granted 30mins extra for checking out @12.30pm.

Overall, we are still satisfied with the hotel.for its value for money.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor, not lower than 5th floor.

Stayed in superior room for 3N. According to check im staff, superior room is 2 single beds & deluxe rooms is queen bed. But they do offer help to combine e single beds if u wish.

I find both spring matresses in my room can feel e spring which affected my sleep in 1st nite. Next 2 nites i felt better maybe more used to it. But my husband complained he could not sleep well for all nights due to this problem.

Overall I find it is good value for location, buffet breakfast was not bad.

I stayed in Capitol Hotel from 19 April to 25April, 2014 on a business trip. This is an excellent hotel for both family and business trip, very centrally located with so many shopping opportunities around. It is a no frill, excellent value for money, clean and comfortable rooms with beautiful view of the twin Tower, excellent multi cuisine breakfast, courteous staff. Ms. Norlita of the front office goes that extra mile to see that your stay is comfortable and even your slightest requests are professionally attended to and resolved. I will surely come back and stay in this hotel again and recommend to those who look for best value for money along with comfort.

Hotel is central to bukit bintang. & the rooms are clean. Otherwise this hotel is pretty disappointing. Do not under any circumstances order any food from room service. It is hands down the worst food I have ever had from any hotel anywhere. It is inedible.
There are much better options in KL. Spend an extra $20-30 & stay somewhere really nice.

We spent 4 nights at the Capitol Hotel and enjoyed our stay. We had a room on the 13th floor with a beautiful view of the Petronas Towers and the city -- definitely the room's best asset. The room was not too noisy -- the hotel actually added another window structure over the original windows to help dampen the sound and it worked really well.

The room itself was clean, large and spacious, and the hotel is located in a good area close to loads of malls, restaurants, shops, etc.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on a higher floor and request a city view.
