I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning to come to KK. It's a walking distance to the famous sunday market at Gaya Street and waterfront esplanade. It is just opposite a shopping mall Suria Sabah, and on the other side is another shopping mall Wisma Merdeka. The famous Filipino market that sells pearls and local handicrafts...

This was our second visit to this hotel and we were pleased to see little had changed since the first visit earlier this year, with comfortable, clean rooms and friendly helpful staff. A few cons though, with the carpets in our room being quite grubby and overdue for cleaning and if you bring or hire a car, there is no...

We stayed here for 3 nights. We booked it with our airasia flight from Kuala Lumpur which cost us only USD50 per person for flight + accomodation + b'fast. The room was spacious and clean. Although the room had no view- we later found out there were rooms facing the sea- it did not matter as we were touring KK...

Location is great, located in KK old town, walking distance to the mall opposite and easy access to food and the Filipino market is just walking distance. Parking is all around, but you have to pay the parking fee else face a fine! Breakfast was not bad as well. Good enough number of selection. It's walking distance, less than 5...

Had a very wonderful experience during my stay at this hotel. The price was afforable, room was comfortable and clean and the location is smack in the middle of town (5-minute walking distance to the fame Gaya Street Sunday Market). The best thing about the hotel however has to be the seaview from the restaurant during sunset!

The hotel was situated in an area where bikers liked to hang out and on both nights there, we were woken up by the loud noise of gunning and revving engines and speeding motorbikes. Moreover, the room needs to be refurbished. The cream coloured carpet and cushions were discoloured, grey or black in places; it certainly didn't inspire confidence in...
