So we were heading to Kuala Lumpur to get a visa for China
as we had read online that the Chinese embassy there are pretty straightforward
about giving out visas. We arrived by Train into KL after a 3 hour journey from
Ipoh. We took a taxi straight to the hotel and were relieved to see it had a
meter. The hotel was very fancy and …

Another Sale Of The Century!

This morning the plan was to get up and head straight to Chinatown to look for the elusive crockery shop. We headed in for breakfast around 10:30am and headed to the same place we had breakfast last time. This time we had three roti canai and two curry dips - a rendang style curry dip and the dahl curry. The rendang one was delicious.

    Horrible Hotel and worst customer service


    I spent a week at corus hotel during the very busy month of August and it was a very bad experience. We were a group of 8 ppl and we had 4 standard rooms reserved for us. when we checked in we found that only 2 rooms had mini bars!! when i spoke to the reception staff who are not plesant at all they told me that not all rooms have mini bars and that thy assign rooms according to first come first serve!! Rooms are old and need to be maintained.Food isnt great at the breakfast buffet.



    I have no complaints. They treated me well.

    The rooms are adeqaute. The view from 816 was stunning. A Petronas Tower reflected in the swimming pool.

    Very dated- The only thing good about it is location


    We stayed at the Corus for a couple of nights stopover. The only thing that is really good about this hotel is its convenient location. The views from our balcony over the Petronas tower were fantastic. Now the rest is that everything about this hotel feels dated and worn out.

    The rate is the cheapest we could find for the golden triangle area but actually the hotel is really not a 4 star standard.

    I would only recommend staying there for 1 night and not any longer.

    Good Location...Not so good hotel


    I agree with lots of parts of the other reviews. The Corus hotel website is certainly misleading and the rooms are not like those shown in the pics. I had a room on the executive floor and I have to say I've stayed in B + Bs that were better.

    Everything was reasonably clean although the place does look quite worn in general with the carpets and curtains looking particularly faded / stained.

    The location of the hotel is excellent with good access to the Petronas Towers and main shopping areas as well as Zouk, one of the biggest nightclubs in KL.

    Overall it wasn't the worst hotel stay I've had and I didn't find reason to complain, but you could certainly do better, especially in KL.

    After booking this hotel online, I was mortified to read the damming reports on this site. If it hadn't been over the Chinese New Year I would have sacrificed my deposit and booked elsewhere.

    Corus -Not worth singing about


    Had that well used feel about it. The carpets, curtains, furniture etc all need replacing. The nice shiny white outside photos shown on the net and in brochures is years old. The outside of this Hotel needs cleaning or a paint. The thumping from a nearby disco keeps you awake till past midnight. The food is excellent and Hotel has a good lobby. Not much outside of lifts -very drab greeting on each floor. Prices should be halved to reflect this Hotel's true worth. Location is fantastic for KLCC. Unfortunately, a Corus not worth singing about.

    Dont Stay Here!


    I stayed at The Corus for two nights with my fiance after spending 10 fabulous nights in Langkawi at the Berjaya.

    Pretty worn


    The hotel offers very good location, withing easy walking distance from the twin tower and KLCC park. But the rooms desperately needs some touch ups. Not that it was unclean, but everything in the guest rooms from furniture to drapes to carpets and towels, everything is old and worn out. Used to be white towels are now thin and gray... Hotel staff were friendly and nice, but more attention should be given to housekeeping. I always found some hair in the bath room, and the mini-bar didn't get refilled. It's cheap, and if you are looking for a budget hotel. this maybe an answer. If you have higher standard for comfort, I won't recommend this place.

    Excellent location


    It was quite adequate-very central:beside a metro station (KKKL)/ quick stroll to Twin Towers-coolest way is underground via Avenue K right next door

    Looks like a nice pool;room was large,clean,well serviced

    Staff slow at Reception but all staff in hotel reasonably pleasant

    Food varied & interesting but could not describe it as a "must "

    We were at a conference & that seemed very well organised by the conference people & the hotel

    I'd stay there again just for the location

    Extremely tired.....


    I went to Corus as a last resort. It was New Year's Eve, all hotels in Central KL were fully booked. The check-in was very slow.....there were only 2 staff at the reception counter, doing the checking-in, cashier, concierge....all in one. Not systematic at all. Got into my room....almost 40 minutes later....and was extremely disappointed at the state of the room! The door knob came off, the bathroom looked like I was in a 70s hotel, and so was the bed, the furniture and all. Obviously, in need of refurbishment. The location was the only good thing....very near to KLCC. The Lobby was okay. Checked-out within 15 mins....:(
