Only one thing has to...

I stayed from 15/1-20/1. I booked vista room for the view and bath tub and was given room 0620. The room is modern and clean but... 1) The window panel is smaller due to the room located at the corner. Only half the wall. So the view is limited.

Good hotel in the centre of kk. The hotel itself is well presented and the rooms very cozy. Great comfortable beds. Buffet breakfast was good. It is conveniently located next to the night market which is an experience in itself and near the waterfront and boardwalk which is littered with pubs and restaurants. Good overall stay
