Just an average stay for 2 nights, breakfast was okay, nothing special. The rooms are bit outdated, no pool or gym facilities in the hotel, it's like the "old style" hotel in 90s. Wifi only available at the lobby, it doesn't worked at the rooms. location is nice, shopping mall just right opposite to the hotel. If you are on... More

There is really no city view a car park and... More

This hotel was a bit outdated... the washroom and carpet in the room was awful. Some of reception stuff was cold, you have to ask them details or they won't say much to you. I don't see myself will visit this hotel again in the future. Oh, the only thing about this hotel is close to mall and downtown sightseeing.

The staff are very helpful and good for advice and info , especially... More

The location of this hotel is very good. It is located in the walk distance to KK port, where the boat to different island departing (Sapi, Mamutik, Manukan). If you go in a different direction along sea side you will reach a town market with full of various sea food which could be cooked at spot.

The only issue is it is hosting a travel group on the same floor. The sound proofing is not good enough when kids... More
