Well this is my first time having a holiday in KL as I'm from KL and mostly have had holidays all around Malaysia. To tell you'll the truth, EQ really blew my mind. The experience I had was equaling to a 7 star rating. First of all, Kudos for the service, very friendly, helpful and willing to listen staff. Always with a smile and always making you feel comfortable. I had birthday plans for my fiancé in the room and they did everything to make it a memorable one. I was upgraded to bigger and better room. The deco was amazing and even had chocolate complimentary from the Chef. Do I have to say more? Unfortunately I was not able to experience the hotel utilities and restaurants due to the pandemic. But for sure I will be back to your hotel once all this have been cleared to enjoy the rest of it. Shout out too, Abel, Farisha, JP and a few others who sorry I did not capture your names. Your service was excellent and thank you for making me feel at home. I promise to see you'll soon. Take care and be safe.

Hotel's Favourite
My 1st stay after MCO 2020 in March. This time taking the 1 day off , celebrating our 24th Anniversary with my loved one. Stayed for 1 night at EQ Hotel KL, and it was arranged by the team tremendously. They had the room decorated, with swan love and petals of roses on bed, fruit basket with a slice of cake. The room was spacious and the Reservation staff assisted us to the room and explained further on the features of the room. The mini bar was Complimentary ! Due to MCO, our package inclusive of breakfast at Nipah Restaurant and dinner in the room. The food served during our dinner, was delicious, The breakfast spread was nice, even though due to MCO, all are based on SOP. We also manage to have our tea at L2 Restaurant , which we had 1 club sandwich and chicken burger. Delicious! Our room faces the KLCC and the view was wonderful! We expect more lights from KLCC but not that what we expected , but still its lovely view. We manage to went up to Sky51 - and the view was spectacular. Great stay !
