We stayed here for 2 nights and we were very glad to have picked Hotel Kai. On arrival, checkin was very efficient and friendly (one of the best checkin experiences I have had). We received a welcome drink which was a nice unexpected bonus. We stayed in a room with a double bed (room 5A), it had a window and... More

We arrived at the boutique hotel and went to our room. The reception is good. the room was surprisingly small. if you have a lot of baggage to carry then this pace is not advisable. there were no cabinets to hang things. The bathroom door slides open even while showering! Bed's comfortable, food is good. Still a comfortable place to... More

They have small one person rooms, good enough for a few days but really small. There is not many staff and sometimes you can feel a bit lonely. The breakfast i quite basic but good enough foif you are stayying just a few days. The best is the location, as you have many good restaurants and mrt stations around.

I am afraid this is the smallest hotel I've ever been, even smaller than my stay in Tokyo/ Osaka. I can find a bathroom, a sink, a single bed and a small round couch in my single room. The wall accommodates many utensils and a flat screen TV. The bed is comfortable, and the shower is enjoyable. The room has... More

I spent 7 nights at the Hotel Kai , I was in probably one of the smallest rooms ; previous reviewers have mentioned that everything fits in well - Kettle , iron , ironing board ect , I would agree with that.

Dear Peter L Thank you for your positive reviewed on almost all areas, the Urban Cabin room that you had booked for is indeed from our smallest room category, you might have an illusion that the bed is shorter due to the bed set up from the wall, however, all our beds are in standard dimension at 190cm, you might...

Was a little surprised at how small the Urban Premier room was after checking-in but it was very cozy and comfortable. The amenities are in good condition. It would be better if the room had a refrigerator.

I stayed here for 3 nights with a colleague of mine. The hotel room was soooo small, I can't believe they can fit everything in such a space, however I think it's very comfortable. For a 3-star hotel, it has everything in the room, except for the fridge (maybe they should put it one in each floor). Overall, great place... More
