I stayed at EQ KL from 30 Sep to 2 Oct 2022 as part of a corporate event. During my stay, my company held several meetings and most of our meals were in the hotel. Everything went well and I'm pleased the way things turned out. I'd like to credit a few EQ staff for this: Jana, who is the epitome of "under promise over achieve", coordinated our corporate stay and events beautifully. I'd like to say a big thanks to him. I'd also like to say well done to Anas, the restaurant manager of Sabayon, who also worked with me to provide my team a wonderful fine dining experience. Lastly, a thumbs up to the tall Indian bellman (sorry forgot his name) for always putting in his best efforts to ensure all our storage and baggage needs were met.

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 !

My friend and I had an absolutely enjoyable stay here. If there's one thing about this hotel that stands above the rest, it's their impeccable service. I loved how we both were practically escorted from the moment we stepped out of the car until we checked in. The members of staff are warm, welcoming and ever attentive to all our needs. Huge shoutout to Affan for being kind enough to let us extend our check out time! This is actually my 2nd time staying here and I definitely would love to return for another stay.

EQ KL is a fantastic hotel for business travellers and holiday makers! This hotel is new, modern and located at the heart of KLCC with beautiful rooms and facilities including the stunning sky bar and restaurant, SKY51 and the beautiful infinite pool on level 29. Furthermore, all the staff who I encountered during my stay were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Although I have visited KL many times this year, this is the very first time I stayed at EQ KL. However, I will be definitely coming back to EQ KL.

Tehran, Iran2 contributions
I stayed in this hotel with my fiancé and parents for a week. I can boldly say that EQ Hotel was the best hotel that I have stayed in during the last ten years of my many trips to the countries. Apart from the fact that the location of the hotel was excellent, it was considered a first-class hotel in terms of reception, hospitality, polite staff and coordination. I had requested a handddicaped room due to my disability. The room was really big and completely wheelchair accessible. The hotel had arranged for me a disabled lift and it was in the room before we arrived. I would like to thank Ms. Sharifah Nor and Mr. Dino Zainal for helping me so much before and during my stay at the hotel. As I said, the hotel is first-class in every way and it is absolutely worth the money you spend, although in my opinion, the only thing that this hotel lacked for the disabled was a disabled lift for the pool, which was very easy to install next to the pool. Considering that this hotel is perfect for disabled people in every way, it's a pity that your disabled guests can't use your beautiful pool. It should be noted that these lifts are small and inexpensive, of course, this is not a complain, this is just a suggestion to complete the facilities of this great hotel for disabled guests. Regards

This was my 3 stay in 2022 and EQ still exceeded my expectations. Room is super nice, clean and modern; as with the whole hotel ambience. What set them apart from their competitors; is their EXCELLENT customer service. This 5 stars service was consistent across the hotel from reservation, to concierge, to reception and housekeeping; and this is what pull me back here again and again. Keep up the great hospitality EQ.

The EQ exceeded our expectations. We were kindly upgraded to a Petronas Tower View deluxe room as we arrived early and our standard deluxe room wasn't ready. The rooms are clean and modern with a wide array of amenities including coffee machine, a good range of toiletries, powerful hair dryer and free hair brush. The bath is freestanding and quite some size! The windows have electric blinds which are a great addition as they can be controlled from the bed. The free mini bar contains water and soft drinks as well as some small snacks. Breakfast was the highlight, with Malaysian, Indian, Chinese and western choices as well as some gorgeous pastries. The gym has brand new equipment and the pool offers amazing vjews if KL Tower. Sky51 is also well worth a visit. If we were to return to KL we would definitely stay at the EQ again.
