“Lodge you can trust”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2010


- I like the idea of the co-owner doing the fetching at the airport. I can call him any time I want and be picked at the airport. It makes me trust the place.

- I negotiated everything via email. They reply quickly. Website is updated.

- near the airport just like any place in KK. about 15 minutes. If light traffic, less.

- near cheap restaurants.

- near banks

- near the city center, very close to any thing you need.

- transport can be arranged by the hotel at a reasonable price (30MYR-daytime, 35MYR-dawn)


- Internet (free wifi) is very slow and sometimes does not work. Maybe this applies to all of KK. They have lousy broadband services.

- not so quiet, needs some sound-proofing

- no toiletries (soap, shampoo), only towel

- TV is not working.

- you can smell cigarette smoke in the corridor sometimes, needs proper exhaust.

- the exterior has exposed wires and dusty, needs some beautification :)
