Affordable Five-Star Hotel in the Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur

Convenient Location in the Golden Triangle 

Conveniently located in Bukit Bintang, the Hotal Istana Kuala Lumpur City Center is in the southern half of the legendary "Golden Triangle." A nearby monorail conveniently transports tourists to several popular areas. This 5-star property features 505 guestrooms offering ideal accommodations both for business travelers and visitors looking for a more leisurely stay.

Come for the Fish, Stay for the View

The nearby Aquaria KLCC is an all-encompassing aquarium featuring over 5,000 different species of fish.  Its design displays “the journey of water from the land to the sea.” A two-level building, it uses elevation to provide a unique view of the process.

Once you have completed your aquatic adventure, check out the view from some of the tallest buildings in the world. Menara KL, aka the KL Tower, offers a 276-meter-high viewing deck that provides a breathtaking view of the city.

Fantastic Restaurant Options at the Hotel

There are several restaurants on-site. Urban is the most intriguing of the bunch, as it features a combination of Asian and international dishes. Trishna Authentic North Indian Restaurant features a nice blend of style and substance. Simply getting to dinner is a bit of an adventure through a “psychedelic tunnel.” Once you reach your destination, the cuisine includes tandoori, kebabs, mutton, and several other authentic North Indian flavors.

If you are in the mood for something lighter, the Hotel Istana Kuala Lumpur City Center provides a deli, a lounge, and a sports bar. The Songket Lounge is your best bet if you want to enjoy the beauty of the hotel without eating a big meal.

Wonderful Amenities with Cheap Rates

All rooms at the Hotel Istana Kuala Lumpur City Center include television with movie channels, coffee and tea maker, in-room safe, business table and chair, ironing board and iron, and long bath. Free 100 Mbps WiFi is available throughout the property, which differentiates it from the much more expensive Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel. Club suites include exclusive access to the Club Lounge on the 20th floor. The hotel features a 24-hour business center, medical services, a drug store, a shopping arcade, and florist.

The Bottom Line

A five-star hotel with consistently low rates is almost impossible to find in a giant metropolitan area like Kuala Lumpur. At these prices, the Hotel Istana Kuala Lumpur City Center represents one of the best bargains in the region.

The Istana’s soothing rooms... stand in contrast to the high glitz of its lobby, which boasts giant columns and Malay motifs. There’s also a good-sized swimming pool in a garden setting.
