                                Good location, where all shops are 5-10 mins walk. Good restaurants.

                                Quite old hotels, bathroom need more care and cleaning.

                                Interior decor need to refurbish. Tap water is brownish in colour No hand towels/ They could afford only 2 bath towels ..... To few TV channel Rooms are noisy especially if it is located near to the exit of the lift.

                                wonderful location - close proximity to rail transport, taxis outside entrance if required, free shuttle to china town morning and evening

                                extremely noisy, rooms outdated, plumbing and room finishes could do with a make over.

                                Excellent hotel in a great location. Friendly, helpful staff, nice pool and much better than other hotels in the area that are similarly priced.

                                My father, John Balfour Ross, architect, working with Low Yat, designed the Federal in the 1950's so it has sentimental memories for me. The first real hotel for kl!

                                Good airco in the room, never too cold! Free of charge bottles of drinking water in the room. Bbc channel on tv. Free newspaper on Saturday and Sunday on the door step.

                                Though the free internet connection was included in my room rate when I booked through Booked.net, the hotel receptionist said it was not available for my room.

                                Friendly staff, clean, great location next to Yow Lat Plaza in Bukit Bintang. Many restaurants and bars close.

                                Business center is lacking.

                                It location in the center of KL , nice bulding , in front of Low Yat Plaza , and all shopping malls so near. Good view , just 5 RM from KLCC by taxi.

                                Small rooms, wifi for only 1 device per room which is very limited, slow connection.

                                The revolving restaurant needs upgrading. The carpet was freyed and the sofas were old and dirty.
