Visited Le Meridien with my husband and 2 boys (8 and 12). When we drove up to the hotel we weren't particularly 'wowed' as there's lots of work going on at the hotel. However, once we were in the lobby we realised that it was a stylish and beautiful hotel. Service was excellent and 'Kenneth' was extremely attentive and always... More

Huge rooms, oceanfront ones with a great view, good pool, good breakfast, generous happy hour, and lovely staff. The hotel is well located. One of our activities demanded a 5.30am start and a very adequate packed breakfast was ready at the concierge desk. As others have mentioned our room was a little tired, but they are renovating and I imagine... More

We only spent one night here, but it was really lovely. It is right across the street from the Central Market, where enjoyed a lovely dinner of grilled prawns. We were on the 10th floor and had a spectacular view of the harbour. The room was shockingly large and the bathroom also exceeded expectations. Breakfast was great and the staff... More

The location is ideal for local delight experimental, a drink overseeing the sea, and maybe some dried seafood shopping at the nearby market. Decent room with reasonable price. Breakfast seems a bit average to me.

The hotel is central to everything, and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast buffet is a bit average, (don't ask for poached eggs, they take forever). The food at the pool bar and restaurant is excellent.

Stayed for 23 days over the course of a month. The staff is wonderful and the club lounge has amazing sunsets. It is undergoing needed renovation so a bit noisy and the rooms that aren't renovated yet do need the upgrade. When the renovations are done it will be great. You can't beat the location in KK.
