Wah lau eh .... not so long ago (during my parents time lar) Federal Hotel is like THE Hotel of Kuala Lumpur, its the most happening hotel in the whole of Malaysia and my parents wanted so much to go to the top of Federal Hotel's revolving restaurant to dine but of coz back then they cant afford it.
A bit of background check on The Federal hotel reveals that it is built in 1957, details below :
Most of the time when I got guests coming from abroad into KL and they wanted to go on a shopping spreemost of the time i would put them up in Federal Hotel as it is conviniently located in the center of the golden triangle. Its surrounded by all the shopping centres and food stalls and not forgetting it is just next to Low Yat plaza too!
A landmark hotel built in 1957 for the independence celebration of Malaya. This symbol of modern KL has witnessed the growth and developement of the city from its proime location in the heart of Bukit Bintang which in turn is the commercial and entertaiment hub of KL.
On top of that their room rates are pretty attractive too, the rooms is clean and comfortable. On top of that I just learn recently from an email I received that Federal Hotel just did a soft refurbishment to most of the rooms and public area :
Now there is even more reason to stay in Federal Hotel if you decided to visits KL.
Federal Hotel has implemented soft refurbishment
- change of carpets for all corridors and Deluxe Rooms and an improvement of amenities.
We have added a new restaurant Yi Qi on the ground floor and Deleney's the Irish Pub has moved in from the Grand Plaza Park Royal Hotel.
With all this development, the hotel is looking very fresh and vibrant
And if you got no where to go during this New Year Eve, you could head on to The Federal Hotel KL, they got this canto pop band named HERO that will be doing the countdown with you!
