Good hotel. Clean and nice. Loads of parking area available. Some eateries as well. But a distance from Central KK. Not near shopping malls. But you can drive there easily. The hotel has good number of woman to ensure your stay is pleasant. Good professional staff.

Conveniently located with spacious rooms! Situated in the city centre, this hotel is the ideal location as a base to explore the city. Price of the room was reasonable and staff were really friendly! Free wifi in the room was definitely a big plus too!

I like the FREE wifi service, it connected to internet all the time. Room us quite clean & comfortable. But the only thing is... there are ants! And it is true that the room is big & loud. I can almost hear what is the people doing next door.

On the plus side the rooms are big, almost as big a shangri la, but very plain, nice tv and they still have an english movie channel. On the down side the really down side it the noise from the street. Light sleepers stay away, the glass is so thin that it sounds like a freeway in the next room....

“I think a room away from the main road would be quieter and not too far up the hotel to ensure a better internet connection.”
