This is my first visit to this hotel. Warm welcoming by Front Office Manager, Mr. Richard and his team will make me come again to this hotel. As a business traveler, my concern is the internet service in the hotel. I had problem with the internet service but the way how they attended to the matter is appreciated. The IT... More

We had been booked into another small hotel in KK by a friend before and after the Mt Kinabalu climb, we survived one night there but spent most of the time looking up other hotels. Picked the Ming and transferred our bags there the next day. As soon as we walked in, we were delighted, what a gorgeous hotel and... More

It was 1:20 am in the morning and some guy managed to open my room door with a keycard while I was sleeping, alone, in my hotel room. I was woken up by the sound of the open door and saw a man leaving abruptly. Are you kidding me?! I was so shaken I couldn't sleep through the night and... More

We arrived late in the evening just to leave at 5 am the following morning, which didn't give us much opportunity to explore the hotel and its surroundings. The hotel itself seemed a bit worn, but the staff was friendly and tried their best to make us feel comfortable. The room itself was large and clean, but the bathroom with... More

The non-smoking room I requested had a strong cigarette smell. As I was very tired at the time of arrival, I did not bother to ask for a room change. Staff at the Reception was very friendly and could provide information I asked about.

Great hotel. Friendly staff. Free bus into town (stopping though at 7pm). Great food. Decor modern. Pool large. Only bad point is the location is not great. But you will know that before booking. It's next to a shanty town and main roads which is probably unknown from Google maps. Definatly though recommend this place. Taxis are cheap!
