Stayed for 1 night, the room is quite small but comfortable for 2 people stay. The best thing is, it in front of the gaya sunday market. The staff very helpful to borrow us an umbrella when raining on the morning to go sunday market.

It is just located in Gaya Street, which is full of food, can consider as food paradise. I think around that area with a walking distance of less then 10 minutes got more than 20 shops for food. Besides with walking of around 15mins, the waterfront is there, for you to sit and relax, chatting with friends. You also can... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Had a room with a double bed and a single. The main problem is the bathroom. Low water pressure for the toilet means repeated flushing. Change to another rooms which was slightly better but there was signs of things that was not repaired or in working order. Location was good, smack in the middle of the... More

A bit unfortunate that I have to lodge here when the electricity was cut resulting in the temporary malfunction of the elevator. Concomitantly the water pump faced the similar situation and we literally ran out of water for a while there. But they were resolved before the end of the first day of my stay with an expedient and thoughtful... More

The main value of this hotel is its location. There are plenty of restaurants just a few steps away. Waterfront is also more less behind the corner. My room was small without window but for one night stay really sufficient. Room itself was clean and modern. Breakfast was served in nearby restaurant.

Overall, we throroughly enjoyed our stay in KK Suite. Hospitality was very good, the tour to Mari-Mari Cultural Village was well arranged by the hotel, and the room is clean. We also liked the breakfast provided with our stay, particularly the kopitiam coffee. However, on our last night, we were unfortunately kept awake by our next door neighbour who was... More
