Hotel located in city, but I'll suggest to have your owned/rented transport to here or to other places in town. Overall of this hotel is acceptable, accept staff in front desk. I won't say is rude but as a staff in front desk need to improve their profession to serve guest no matter is from foreign country or from local.

Stayed for 3 nights. Very nice, clean hotel. Neatly decorated rooms with the motives of underwater world (inspiring for divers!). Staff was very helpful - they even bought me some beers at night, when I couldn't find a liquor shop! The location is perhaps not the most central, but with UBER it costs only around 5 ringgit (1-2 USD) to...

Buffet breakfast mostly catered for chinese but also with European options like toast and you can have your eggs cooked in what ever style you like. Fruit platter changes daily. Beds were comfy, the thing I appreciated the most was the fact that I had soundless sleep. As the hotel is a 30 min walk away from main kk you...

Wonderful hotel. Perfect after an entire day of airports. Had a flight get in at 1:30am. Took a 45 ringgit taxi to the hotel and there were no problems in letting me check in that early. The concierge staff is very friendly and professional. However, the location of the hotel might be a bit out of the way for some....

In a out of way location but closer to airport....free shuttle to downtown and back. Rooms are clean and spacious for the price.. breakfast included was good. Reception and staff friendly and helpful. We got a upgrade to King Room which was Nice!

Tucked away on what seems to be an industrial area part way between the city centre and the airport, this is otherwise a perfectly respectable modern mid-range anonymous hotel that feels like a European or US chain. Nice bulk-standard room, ok service, ok breakfast. Routinely average and a safe bet.

Quite ok hotel, however I would suggest to get something directly in the city center, as KK city center is very small and it's pointless to live 10 minutes by taxi - 20MY, 30MY from airport to hotel (shuttle bus helps, but won't solve the time when you need to go to the hotel and go back to the city)...

Reception area and staff very nice, but that's it. Rooms smelt and were dirty. Towels were frayed and had a hole. Carpet stained. Desk chair stained. Toilet roll not changed and no spare. Not close to anything. Would not recommend.

On the webpage the description read "Riverside tranquility, comfort and convenience". OK, it is a 7-10min taxi ride to KK center/water front. But KK is not such a big city so most hotels are central. but to call this place a riverside and tranquil, is an exaggeration. (see pic of view). There is a river/canal flowing by on the other...

The reviews seemed positive and the other hotels in central KK were booked up (tip to self, do not leave hotel bookings till the last minute), so we booked two nights here after coming down from Mt Kinabalu. The hotel itself is pretty standard. But the rooms do not have any central air-conditioning. So when you leave the a/c shuts...
