Dirty room, with a strong smell of cigarette smoke (although it was clearly a "non smoking" room), dysfunctional internet. Disgusting smell also in the corridors. Very unprofessional staff, who does not explain anything to you when you check in, and spend its time polishing nails or being on the internet on their mobile phone.

I requested a non-smoking room but they give me a smoking room, when I enter the room, it is very smelly. The aircon is not functioning, whole room is hot. The water is too hot, if turn to cold water, suddenly no water in the middle of showering.

Stayed here for two nights in kk. The hotel really needs upgrading. We stayed in a large room on the 8th floor. Apparently non smoking but smelt heavily of stake cigarette smoke. The whole hotel did. The carpets in the hallways are old and dirty. Concierge staff were friendly. The bell man especially. Breakfast was poor. Small selection. Luke warm....

We booked this room incredibly cheaply and the staff were efficient. The hotel itself seems clean, the room was also clean inside but it was very small and not very comfortable. There were lots of cigarette butts outside our window which smelt terrible so we kept the curtains closed. The bathrooms was appropriately equipped, but again, not very comfortable for...

Location is really good about 5-10 mins on foot you can reach all of the trip advisor's top recommended restaurants from this hotel. However thats all. House keeping service was average -no more than that- just clean the room, empty the rubbish bin, and make up rooms. But considering the room rates it is enough. Cheap clean good location! 24...

Walked past this Hotel in search of alternative accommodation in KK, and I must say It was not a disappointing Stay. Stayed 2 days, the helpful staff were always ready to lend a hand or their time in any circumstances. The Room was Clean and Tidy , and housekeeping did a good job of maintaining that way. Great View from...

There are much better options in KK for this price or lower. A bonus is the included breakfast but all in all it's not worth it. The hotel is a bit shabby and run-down, the wifi barely works and often there will be something wrong with your room 9toilet not flushing, shower not working etc.). KK is growing all the...
