We stayed at this hotel in January 2010 for two days while we were in KK. Must say it is a fantastic hotel at a great location. It's about a 15- 20 minute ride from the airport. The best thing about the hotel is its location. There are lots of eateries from McDonalds to local food which is a must try. The bay is at a walking distance and the Esplanade by the bay is a wonderful place to spend your evenings. Coming to the hotel the rooms are small but pretty modern with LCD TV,hair dryer AC and other modern amenities. There is a common ironing board for use of guests. The city really comes to life at night and this is actually a great place to stay to enjoy the night life.
Housekeeping was excellent and we had no complaints about it. Although breakfast was not complimentary we however suggest patrons to try out local food available right outside the hotel to get a taste of the city. Taxis are freely available however the city is such that it is more fun exploring it on foot. The bus stop is close by from where one can get small vans to KK National park at a nominal price.
All in all a great place to stay and bring home great memories of a fantastic city
