“Fine, not wow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

Good price, perfectly comfortable room, OK surroundings. Free wifi and lots of decent (but not particularly interesting) places to eat within a few metres. It's not in the centre of town - although only a short taxi ride away - but absolutely fine if you've got business on that side of town, as I did. And it is a good price. But if you're coming on holiday, or your business is in town, then I wouldn't really recommend it as anything special. You're better off picking a place to stay that is more convenient to the sites and the business district.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2011

It's an added value for money for a night or two only. Not within the best location of the city unless you're into clubs or semi fine dining. Service was to meet expectation but not to exceed. You would expect smile, greet, talk & listen but neither answer nor anticipate. Room was spacious but not clean. The room maid might have forgotten to vacuum the room despite used toothpicks found under the bed! Maybe she had a back-to-back assignment. Requested a twin sharing and got a "Hollywood King", Air-conditioning was rather hot. Mini Bar was not chilled enough to compliment your beverages. Bathroom amenities was basic minus the toothbrush & paste, Extra towel was at RM3.00 per / request. Make sure you get a higher floor & city view. It delivers you some justice. And by the way, having a car would be an added advantage, or you'll end spending a fortune for taxis or the internal transfer services.

We stayed here for just 1 night stay since, we have flight the next stay. The hotel is 20 mins. ride from the airport. The reception is small. The room have a big queen size bed with LCD TV.
The room that we stayed have a nice view, of the city. The hotel is located in the secluded area
of KK where all the club hopping begins. but the place have only a few choices of food restaurants we could eat. You wanted to stay here for 1 day, but for 2 days, you will get bored. But, it was a good stay, since, the bed is nice and they have a big cable LCD TV.

Got the Pleasure of staying here on Xmas. The location was great for clubbers as both top nightclubs were located on the ground floor of the complex.

The rate was excellent compared to the accommodation location 2 KMs away which is in front of the esplanade. Which reminds me, it really helps if you have your own transport while staying in this location.

We booked this hotel by phone,the service was not bad.The room was tastefully furnished and i must praised the cleanliness of the room.We stayed at the non smooking floor though so there's no any smells that i noted.
What i like about this hotel is its cleanliness,free wifi,and the room has a LCD Tv with it.The room was spacious,nice bed,great for relaxing.For those who enjoyed night scene,there's a club nearby which was within walking distance,i understood one of the famous club in KK.
