Stay for only one night due to hotel location was walking distance to my business meeting. I would stay in another hotel if I had to stay more days in KK. Overall this is a budget hotel with very small room. Enter the room you can jump onto the bed. Bfast is pretty limited, choice of bread and nasi lemak... More

The hotel is nicely located at the centre where waterfront is. There are good food around that area, eg: seafood,curry mee and coffee ! The room has basic facilities and I would say I'm quite happy with it. However, my friend and I experienced our room keys deactivated and I actually called and requested someone to fix the thing for... More

The hotel is well located but rooms are small and restaurant very basic. Most of the cheap rooms are windowless but in that kind of hotel you don't want to spend time in your room. The staff is very friendly and can accomodate your wishes.

There was really limited parking space, and room size was really small with double bed for price paid is quite pricey. When people walk passed, we could hear footstep as my room was near the lift. The bedsheet had blood stains on it, quite disgusted! However, location is good and easy to find food eateries nearby.

- Parking included - Great location, in the heart of KK. - Reasonable price. (don't bother the bfast, plenty of food around) - There are windowless rooms. Make sure you got the one you want. - Rooms are clean. Simple. a bit small, it's ok to me. For people without car, this is a good choice too.

Had a tv with quite limited channels,but was clear.They dont have water bottles provided but they have 2 cups and a small walk down the corridor you will find a water dispenser with both hot and cold water. Room is very clean. No fridge.... More

We needed extra towel and the housekeeper manager herself brought to us in no time. Her name was Ms Julia. It was a nice touch. The first time in... More

The rooms were very standard: a comfy bed, a safe, a small refrigerator and a clean bathroom. However, they were a bit small, but not a big deal. I think my favorite thing about this hotel is that the staff always smiling. I found it to be funny and sweet. I guess the bottom line is that you can't go... More

I agree with everyone who had compliant about the noise issue. Yep, but I still choose to stay in this hotel. Why? It's cheap and got free wifi. That's good enough for me. I do found noise from the corridor can easily travel through. But that's when you have inconsiderate neighbor shouting and laughing in the middle of the night... More
