Hotel Istana Kuala Lumpur to shut down effective Sept 1

PETALING JAYA: Hotel Istana Kuala Lumpur will be ceasing operations from Sept 1, says general manager Noorazuddin Omar.

"We have arrived at this decision after considering the present circumstances and all available options. We are left with little choice other than to proceed with this closure," he said.

In a statement on Thursday (July 1), Noorazuddin said that the Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the hotel’s business, rates, returns and occupancy.

"Even as a quarantine hotel, we are incurring monthly operational losses. As such, after a proper evaluation of the hotel and its viability, we have decided to cease operations," said Noorazuddin.
