  • Family with children
    10.0

    I have stayed in 3 different Shangri-La Hotels in Malaysia and I'm always impressed with the the quality of the food and the friendly and service minded staff. There are probably better hotels out there but overall you get good value for your money when staying at Shangri-La. The hotel in KL is very nice and has a modern feeling to it since it has undergone a complete renovation in 2009. Shangri-La KL gets both thumbs up. I especially enjoyed the breakfast buffet.

    Nothing negative to mention but I would rate the Mandarin Oriental in KL a bit higher than Shangri-La KL.

  • Family with children

    The hotel and staff created a wonderfully relaxing environment. The staff were professional, helpful and friendly. The facilities were excellent and although we didn't use the restaurants we did have the breakfast - which was superb and provided a wonderful variety to choose from.

  • Single

    I enjoy the high quality service and the comfortable beds

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Excellent hotel, perfect service, very nice staff. Well situated near to Petromas Towers (only 5 minutes walk) and to shopping mall. City tours starts in front of the hotel, Don't miss the breakfast at Lemon garden. If possible take an up-grade to Horizon club rooms.

  • Family with children
    3.8

    nothing

    the staff are very rude . the service was very poor . It was summer and kind of abusy time of the year and it was obvious that the staff can not handle to serve big number of poeple.It was not worth the money we have paid . in short we didnt enjoy our stay at Shangri-La at all . This would be our last time to stay there .

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Very friendly staff and Cleanliness of rooms. Breakfast is excellent. Hotel staff were helpful to the whole family.

    Not really a complaint but wish from the Hotel to include more TV channels particularly for Arabic speaking guests such as AL-Jazeera channels, AL-Majd, and other children channels.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Location is excellent

    The way dnd is triggered (too close to the room main light switch) is misleading. This means you can easily find yourself in dnd situation for a long period without knowing it. As a logical consequence your room cannot be made until you understand the dnd logica.

  • Couple
    9.6

    Hotel is beautifully presented and staff are excellent, always attentive and knowledgeable. Room was spacious and comfortable. Food was fantastic.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Very large rooms, excellent breakfast (award winning), great services from E.G. the congierge who helped us finding great tours around and about. No wonder this hotel has been ranked the best in Kuala Lumpur in 2011!

    Though excellent cuisine, their in-door restaurants (Zipangu, Chang's Palace, Arthur's) are western priced, and thus relatively expensive compared to great restaurants you'd find in the neighboorhood. Also, their Spa rates are quite high as well.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Shagri La hotel is best located. Next to Petronas towers, shopping malls and within walking distance to all the above. The Hotel design is great newly decorated in 2009 lovely bedrooms and the best lobby area I have seen in a city hotel by now. Great breakfast a variety of food.

    It was packed and in the chinese restaurant we had dinner one night the service wsa not excellent but good.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Very large hotel, with many facilities (tennis court, spa, shops and relaxing lounge). I liked the breakfast selection, the general friendliness of the staff, and the cleanliness of the room.

    I hoped the room would be larger.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The staff was excellent, very friendly & helpful, special thanks to Charlie @ Front Desk! Good location, within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and Petronas Twin Towers. Wifi available in rooms but transmission gets slow during evening hours.

    Pool a bit on the weak side.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Simply , everything . Special thanks to ms zie in the front desk who was extremely welcoming

    Simply , nothing

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Very luxurious,a lovely final night to a lengthy holiday in Europe

    Preferred the original british Pub to the new Arthurs bar

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Excellent ambiance with personalised service. The response of the staff to any needs was prompt and courteous. Location wise it is most convenient for leisure as well as shopping.

    The taxi service being patronised by the hotel is far too expensive, the rates being quoted were almost 60% higher than the prevalent limo rates.
