Good service and very clean. The lobby just had a makeover and it is nice. Good rooms. Good location in K.K.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2009

I stayed at this hotel as I've to conduct a 4 days course organised by a state agency. Since the course was held at this hotel, I chosed to stay here so that I didn't have to move around as the seminars starts from 8am till 10.30pm daily.

The room wasn't comfortable. the bed smelt unpleasant & bad condition. it looked like it has been there for 10 years! the aircond was not cool enough and the lights was not bright enough. The bathroom also looks like a vintage bathroom.

I think the hotel like this condition will only qualify for a RM40/ day but I paid RM100/day. I've no other option as my class held at this hotel.

If you're looking for a budget hotel, I do not recommend this hotel though!

Regards
