Service is good with no hassles in... More

This is my 3rd trip to KK, and my 2nd time to stay in Le Meridien. I stayed in 1Borneo Hotel the other time. The best thing I can say about the hotel is its location.

Big room and good location. Next to night market and Philippines market. About 10 minutes walking to supermarket. 10 minutes walking near jetty to the island. It is very convenient and I like to stay there again if I ever go to kk next time
