azizan on club floor

Always a great pleasure to see Azizan at the Club Floor lounge at The Istana Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. He always treats new guests with a warm welcome and long standing guests like me with the same warmth that makes me look forward to seeing him at every visit. He is helpful, efficient and a significant asset to the Istana. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he goes the extra mile for every guest without even having to be asked.
Please let him know how much his guests value him-for me he is a key component of the Istana experience and why I continue to book my KL business trips here.

At Istana, you just feel welcomed and it's always like coming home. Even if you have not been there for a couple of months, they recognize you and make your stay as pleasant as possible. Everyone is very, very friendly and you just can't leave without a sad face because you won't see them for a while anymore. Thanks to the whole team (and especially the ones from the Club Lounge) for doing an amazing job! :)
