The food here is very Malaysian.
I have stayed at the Istana many times now, almost always on business and I am happy that my company puts me here! I know central KL quite well but even so, it is nice to be able to stay where the Pavilion is just round the corner, Low Yat is jut 25 minutes' walk away, KLCC is also a short walk away. The rooms and levels of service are high and I always leave the hotel with a smile and I look forward to returning as often as I do.
MACEE PRIVATE EVENT - 4 MARCH 2018
I wanted to inform that the event went really well. That being said your banquet staff was really helpful and I truly appreciate it.
I was really happy when I came in Saturday night to sort things out and your team lead by Mr Johnny got everything all set up before I came in again on Sunday.
Also the signage across the ballroom were really great. It was lovely to have the banquet staff present at all times to make sure that my team can get our things running smoothly.
I received a few feedback about the sounds system in Mahkota 3 Ballroom on how there was echo. And the layout might have been a little too tight in the Mahkota 2 Ballroom (there was traffic in the sides of the fair-and how the square inside was too wide). I understand that if we made the square inside smaller, we might not have been able to fit in the number of tables.
Overall, I had a very positive experience from the whole Istana team. You have been really helpful and VERY ACCOMMODATING which I really appreciate. I really appreciate all the hard work that you and your team have done to make our event a successful one.

private WEDDING event - 24 February 2018
I wish to record my sincere thanks and appreciation to Istana Hotel for the smooth running of our luncheon function last Saturday, 24th Feb 2018.
Ms Nadziati Dzulkifli, Assistant Event Services Manager helped us to put the whole event together smoothly. She was very patient with our requests, especially the late addition of tables, and for this I also wish to record my thanks to the Banquet team and to the Chefs.
It was very heart-warming to me personally, to have your team extending such great hospitality and assistance ….. from the Event Services team to Chef Fithri and his team, the Banquet Team under the supervision of En Tasmin, the Technical team, Ms Ruby and Ms Inderjit from the HR Department, and the Security department. It was like having a function with a family.
While all went well, I wish to just highlight one area of concern. A few guests mentioned that the room was a bit warm. The bride’s father also mentioned this to me towards the end of the event. Barring this, your team was at hand to provide all the necessary assistance and cooperation, and the afternoon proceeded very well.
Once again, many thanks and I look forward to future events at Istana Hotel.
