We booked this hotel for a one night stay. The only reason for visiting Sungai Petani was as a pick up point for a bird watching trip. There do not seem to be many other reasons for a foreign tourist to visit the town!
The hotel is a fair distance north of the town centre. Our initial taxi transfer from the railway station cost 20 ringgits. A Grab ride to the clock tower cost 7 ringgits and the taxi back to the hotel was 15. Both times we asked a taxi driver to take us to the hotel resulted in an animated discussion amongst the assembled cab drivers as to where it was. It is not yet, therefore , well known in the town. If you get similar problems tell them that it is near the hospital and next door to the community college.
I found it difficult to review this hotel. Undoubtedly we had good value for money as we only paid 90 ringgits (<£20). At first glance, with the water feature in reception and the lounge areas we passed on the way to our room, it had the feel of a more expensive hotel. Our room was quite small. It had a kettle, a/c and tv but no fridge or safe. The bathroom was ok but the “hot” water tap in the sink never delivered anything that approached tepid. The shower water was scalding however. Tip - the shower head in our room reached the sink so you could get hot water for a wash or shave that way. Cleanliness was not at a premium, our bed clothes had been written on and we had ants in the bathroom.
We were asked for a 50 ringgit cash deposit at check in as well as full payment by card. The deposit was returned when we checked out.
We were given vouchers for a “simple” breakfast so, given what we had paid, we were expecting toast and coffee. While the breakfast we got was far from the best we have eaten the was a surprising range. Water melon, cereals, porridge / soup, rice, noodles fried eggs and sausage were also available.
There are a few shops and restaurants near the hotel. A big bonus is that there is an excellent Chinese seafood restaurant (Jade Garden) a couple of minutes walk away.
Based on the price we paid I have give a four star rating. My wife, who is more fastidious than me, would have given a three.
Stayed at this hotel during the 2nd day of raya on 16 June 2018. We just walk in and book. We stay at the Queen size room for rm 130 per night. The room is really spacious,with huge queen bed,kitchen drawers and huge toilet. It was a pleasant 1 night stay and we really had a good night sleep. I especially love the wall decorations.
Highly recommended for those travelling with big family since that the room is really spacious,clean and comfortable.

Wifi so good and so fast. But the only problem for me is the toilet. Quite slippery. Carefull okay.
Hotel location is just nice. Near with Amanjaya mall.
Breakfast is good. Dont expect too much la coz we pay cheap maaa.. atleast they serve nasi lemak, nasi goreng, kuew tiaw goreng, mushroom soup, bread, hotdog, nugget, cereal, fruits and drinks.. so, everything good for me and worth it.
This was my first time staying in K Garden Hotel and for me it was a very good experience. It really exceeds my expectation. Never thought that i would have a great stay with the amount that i paid (below RM100). The room was well equipped, clean and adequately-sized. Free breakfast coupon made my day. The food was good enough, acceptable to my taste but limited choices. Wifi was excellent. Totally recommended. i would love to stay here again anytime soon.
