"The Hotel Istana is strategically located within Kuala Lumpur's main Golden Triangle business and commercial centre."

The modern and elegant hotel offers an oasis of calm within the busy city. Comfortable and stylish guestrooms provide the perfect place to relax after a long day spent exploring KL.

A beautifully landscaped garden is captured through the tall glass frames at Songket Lounge and Taman Sari coffee house. The hotel preserves two green and lush gardens - the Kelantan Garden and Melaka Garden. The Kelantan Garden features the Garden Bar, styled to reflect the architecture of a traditional Kelantan house. The backdrop of fresh foliage is maintained with ardent dedication which includes exotic garden species such as Jasmimum Sambac, Canagum Adorata, Michelia Campaca and Brunfelsia. The Kelantan Garden, located at the Hotel’s Greco-Roman styled swimming pool, provides a great setting for sunbathers.


Featuring 505 well appointed guestrooms fitted with modern amenities, the Hotel Istana provides comfortable and luxurious accommodation in Kuala Lumpur. All rooms come with air-conditioning, television, radio, coffee and tea making facilities and a long bath with separate shower area. 


An inviting free-form outdoor Greco-Roman styled swimming pool overlooking a picturesque and artistically landscaped tropical garden accords an alternative recreational option, offering a conducive setting for ultimate relaxation and sun-bathing.

Kuala Lumpur has an equatorial climate defined by hot year round temperatures and abundant rainfall. The Titiwangsa Mountains in the west and the mountainous Indonesian island of Sumatra to the east offer protection to the city and influence its climate. The southwest monsoon rain hits KL between September and April but rainfall is not too high throughout the season. The best time to visit KL is between June and August, when the weather is driest.
