Historical Traveller Reviews of Dorsett Regency Hotel Kuala Lumpur
very good service,great stayfrom thedoctor46
You can do better, Dorsett Regency KLfrom yapnelann
It is a 4 star hotel with all the essentials for a 4 stars hotel such as a nice marble bath room, reasonably clean bedroom, as well as a good and convenient location with free parking for guests.
We requested for an early check in and an adjoining room. Not only were we unable to check in at 1.30pm, by the time we finished our lunch at 2.30, we were told abruptly by the not very friendly receptionist to take a seat. As for our adjoining room, we were not alloted one either.
Upon checking in, I realised that both the rooms have lights not working. The maintenance personnel got it fixed quickly. Then I discovered that our safe was not working, neither were we able to call from room to room following the instruction on the phone. We later were told by the operator that we had to dial '0' instead of '8' as printed on the phone.
The next morning, we were awaken by strange sound which we initailly thought was a broken aircon. Later the sound became louder and ongoing. We called the house keeping and waited, the sound did not cease. When I called again, they told me they were fixing the problem which seemed to be cross the board, I felt that they should have informed us instead of letting us wait in vain for the maintenance personnel to come by.
This is a hotel with potential to do better, they just have to put more effort in trainning the staffs and increasing the maintenance of the premises.
Would definitely stay there again!from may06
I had read conflicting reports on this hotel before we left - however we found it really good. It is ageing - however the location, lovely pool, meals and service were absolutely fabulous. Our room was quite large with a view looking towards the Petronis Towers.
It is located in the golden triangle i.e. Bintang Walk area. We crossed the street, took a short cut through the Ritz Carlton hotel - which connects through to Bintang Walk. This is good especially when the heat can be so intense, you can walk through the hotels in air conditioning to Bintang Walk.
Found the area very safe to walk, either day or night. The monorail is a good way to get around the city. We boarded it near Times Square Hotel and rode it from one end to the other. Gives a good oversight.
Food, travel and accommodation are very very cheap, but if you want to buy other things i.e. cameras, ipods etc - we can get better buys back in Australia. We also went to Penang after Kuala Lumpur and found the same there - buy back home!
If we went back to Kuala Lumpur - we would definitely stay at the Dorsett again - especially for its location.
Good Value for Moneyfrom BCooper123
On the whole we had a very pleasant stay at Dorsett Regency and would love to stay there again.
Would definitely suggest this hotel to other travelers with medium budgets.

VALUE FOR MONEY HOTELfrom JetsettingOzpatriot
Right from check-in the staff treated us as long lost friends and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable.
On arrival we accepted the offer of an upgrade to a Junior Suite for a mere $36.00 (Australian)per night which was well worth it for the quality and size of the suite. It was located on the 26th Floor with views of the Petronas Twin Towers and other highlights of KL.
The suite comprised a large bedroom with King-size bed, computer access and study desk, comfortable lounge area and very large bathroom.
The main restaurant "Checkers" catered for every nationality at breakfast and served a large range of gourmet meals for lunch and dinner. On the last night we took delight in sampling the "International Buffet" which was supurb and again the staff ensured that we were well fed and watered. The cost of the buffet was only RM49, about $20.00 and worth every cent of it.
The hotel is located near the main tourist areas of Jalan Bukit Bintang and within easy walking distance of the numerous shopping centres that abound in KL (Times Square, Starhill, Lot 10 and so on).
The pool area was on the 4th level and was a quiet place to relax and enjoy the afternoon (when not shopping or eating).
All in all I would thoroughly recommend the hotel to those seeking quality at a relatively inexpensive price. Great for families as they have inter-connecting rooms.
Would Stay Againfrom Ledj
Terrible placefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Not very good at allfrom canbguy
The Hotel breakfasts whilst reasonably extensive in choice was of low quality and permitted smokers to light up near and around food. All in all, Yuck !!! spend a few extra dollars and get something better, like next door. Carlton Ritz ???
Top Local Tips for Kuala Lumpur
great place to shop i think the most fun place to shop was chinatown,its a hassel bargaining but fun at the same time,be careful when you buy dvds they say 10 rm but you can get them for 7 rm,be care ful to check everycover,sometimes they cheat you there will be a diffrent movie inside,you get fantastic fake watches like rolex,omega for a great price,eeven the leather stuff is pretty good,overall great place for bargains,could get very croweded in the evenings,please keep your money tucked in safely.
Dinner at KL Tower - unbelievable Dont miss dinner in the revolving restaurant in KL tower ( much higher than Petronas skybridge ) - the view is awesome, food is great and service excellent. Cost with drinks is around Aus$60 pp.
Shopping and leisure Times square shopping centre is amazing and huge, it has an indoor rollercoaster and amusement park inside and an Imax Cinema and regular cinema
