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

                  Quite old hotels, bathroom need more care and cleaning.

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                  extremely noisy, rooms outdated, plumbing and room finishes could do with a make over.

                  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.

                  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.
