Good points - Big comfortable bed and the aircon is strong enough to cool the room rather quickly. - Hotel comes with free airport transfers so really hassle free for passenger like me who is only using the hotel for the stayover before next morning flight at 6am. - There are enough hooks in the bathroom for hanging your clothes...

The bed was okay. The room has 2 bottles of drinking water (500ml), slippers, etc (these are all okay and good). WiFi? I am not sure. Tv? Okay. What I don't like was the bathroom. Water heater not working. And the water in the shower draining extremely slow (I guess maybe only this particular room).

Booked through internet. Arrived in hotel at 5pm and was shocked to be told that the room I booked was not available. Given a smaller room with a ridiculously small window which was 2 meter above ground. The staffs were not friendly. Late check out was rejected and they wanted extra payment for that. No breakfast.

They offer a shuttle from/to airport but there was no driver when we arrived, so we got a taxi (MYR 25) Not near from KK center, but there are small vans that have a very near... More
