The Gaya Centre is a good find in KK but I found it a "little tired" in its presentation and some features. The exterior could benefit from a minor 'face lift' as paint is peeling, run down looking gardent areas and not really welcoming. Interior is fine except for the carpets - need major renovation throughout the whole hotel - many areas, expecially the corridors are soiled, stained and torn.
I had a king panoramic room on the 13th floor - all good except found the bed a little hard and uncomfortable. Good ensuite with lots of hot water and good water pressure. Room had all normal facilities with free toiletries and slippers. It also had good bed linen and bath towels.
Even being on the 13th Floor, a lot of traffic and pedestrian noise could be heard. Caution: The hotel in directly under the flight path during some parts of the day.
If you want to park (why have a car in KK as taxi's are plentiful and fares are negotiated) there is parking at a fee.
G Lounge is a good, if pricy spot, to enjoy a cold drink or light meal at the end of a day's exploring.
Breakfast is or can be included in your room's tariff - I personally do not regard/rate the standard and variety highly but worth a look.
Staff on the whole are friendly and helpful.
Location is central and "not far" from most points of interest within the city proper.
Would I stay again - probably not.
