Capitol Hotel is located on the back of Bukit Bintang and Sungei Wang shopping centre. Not far from it you can reach electronic mall, not to mention Pavillion and Berjaya Times Square are all within foot-reach.

It's a small hotel with no pool, but we weren't looking for one anyway. Breakfast was quite good, and even when they say it's served on 6am, we found that before 6am they're already open (need to eat before catch morning flight).

Porter was always ready to help you with stuffs, call a cab, or offer umbrellas when it rains. Unfortunately there were only two elevators that run slow. The lobby itself was pretty quiet.

There are lots of nearby food stalls to eat, and at night can get noisy but it's still tolerable. Small convenience stores are around the corner comes in handy because they open late at night. The fact that we can go through Sungei Wang's back door is very convenient, as from there we can take shortcut to the main Bukit Bintang road and reach the train or to Pavillion or Lot 10.

Room Tip: Ask for room with view to Petronas and not facing the alley to get less noise from the street.

Was very disappointed by this hotel. What I read about it and the pictures I saw of it did not live up to reality. The rooms were on the2nd floor opposite Low Yat Plaza ,and it was very noisy all night. The house-keeping left a lot to be desired. The only good thing I can say is that the breakfast was good and it was in walking distance to some good malls.

Room Tip: Ask for a room Away from Low Fat Plaza

Have stayed in KL few times now - but this was first at Capitol Hotel - lovely hotel.

Obv v central location - can't think of any negatives.

Staff super nice - breakfast at hotel was really good - my booking had wifi included as part of deal which is really handy.

Room Tip: I booked 'Capitol Deluxe' which gives you great window views - particularly of towers.

This hotel really has a very good locations! It's just right beside Sungai Wang Plaza, just a stone throw away and also located in front of Low Yat Plaza where you can get cheap computers gadget! The room is cozy & big. Have been staying with this hotel more than 10 times already.

I was staying at the hotel for 3 nights. I love it because of its location which is near to everywhere... but too many pubs down there and damn noisy at night, especially Saturday night. But the hotel quite good and clean. The service also good. Food not too bad. Security really good and i feel safe here. I dun mind to stay at the hotel again in the next future.

Room Tip: Ask for bigger room and facing the KL Tower & KLCC... nice view at night :)

I like this hotel so much that I have stayed here all 3 times I have been to KL. First two were business visits and third was pleasure with family. The hotel is located bang in the middle of Bukit Bintang...one of the most happening places in KL. The monorail station and KL Hop on Hop off bus stations are within walking distance from the hotel. Moreover, there are lots of restaurants all around the hotel...from roadside ones to fast food ones like KFC and fine dining ones too. ATMs, Currency Exchange, Coffee Shops, Foot Massage parlors...its all there.

Now about the rooms...everytime I stayed it was 6th floor or above and had great view of the city from there...best part is you can see both the KL Tower and Petronas Twin towers sitting in the room or even lying in bed. The scene is even better at night when both of them are lit up.

The in-house restaurant serves a decent breakfast and also offers good room service menu. Hotel staff is also very cordial and pleasant.

Now the negatives which are few and should not affect anyone other than business travelers. The internet service is a paid one and needs to be renewed every 24 hours. Secondly, hotel does not have a lobby where guests can meet their visitors. Also, parking space around the hotel is scarce as its a very busy area.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at higher floors which are facing KL tower so that you have a good view.
