Reviewed 7 July 2015

We stayed 3 nights in the Executive room (5 people in 2 rooms). It's very spacious with a living room, dining area and kitchenette (stove with heating element). I think it's perfect if you're stuck together for a few days; families are great but personal space is better ;)

Good:
- RM1,100 for 3 nights in a large space incl breakfast is a good deal!
- Free parking
- Not walkable (scary busy highways) but it's near to Welcome Seafood
- Friendly and accommodating staff
- Rainshower, fantastic!

Decent:
- Breakfast spread is vegetarian. Average taste.

Bad:
- pillows too thick
- leaky pipe in the master bedroom, couldn't be fixed
- Room service food is quite bad, except for the pizza
- Room service plates left outside for more than a day, stank
- Housekeeping washed some plates in the sink, but left a couple unwashed. Err...
- No late check-outs

Management if you're reading this, suggestions:
- Provide a fan in the large living room
- Provide scrubs + soap for self plate washing

Despite all that, I'd definitely stay here again if I am travelling in a group. The price for the space we enjoyed was unbeatable.

I booked an Executive Room for two nights for a family of three persons. This hotel is quite new. Located in a small area within the financial and commercial area of the city, entering and exiting the area can be a hassle during peak hours. There is hardly any available space to drop off and pick up in front of the small lobby which is shared with the Borneo Vista Suites Hotel which occupies the same premise. However, free parking facility is available for guests at the four-storey car park. Rooms facilities are excellent and ideal for families even with small children. Cooking could be done here. Breakfast is vegetarian and began quite late. Staying here is preferable if coming with own transport. The nearest coffee shops are at Sadong Jaya which is about ten minutes' walk. The shopping complexes are also not far but walking along and crossing the busy roads are hazardous. Taxis are available on request.

Located at the edge of downtown KK, walking distance into downtown area and to the new Imago luxury goods mall (15-20mins ). Locations was great for us as we mainly drove into the suburbs to visit family and friends. Generally clean suite rooms, great space, though if I need to be picky, the counter top are not properly cleaned upon our check-in, and the walls have dirt and scratch marks. Rooms took quite a few hours to cool down after the air-conditioners were turned on. Pillows were hard (hotel can consider to provide some hard and some soft pillows in room). There is foul smell that comes from the kitchen sink which we plugged it with paper towel. Water pressure is bad during peak shower hours. Our room keys didn't work and wifi expired the day before check-out. (I hate to carry loads of shopping with tired legs to arrive at the room to find not out the room keys didn't work!) Rooftop pool had a great view but small to be able to have a good swim. Free easy parking. However, is it a security issue where the elevator from parking goes to the rooms directly without requiring room key? Included breakfast is vegetarian and mediocre.

New hotel. Only thing is they served vegetarian food only. Good for health. Room is very clean, mini suite and price is reasonable. Just opposite the police station and behind Maybank. It takes about 15 minutes from airport. Hotel also provides free bus to bring you around.

We booked into this hotel for 2 nights as we were in town for some work.
The hotel is newly built so condition of the hotel is still new.
The rooms are spacious and complete a kitchen.
Can do your own cooking.
The gym and pool was closed for renovation during my saty
Pillows were rather hard and they did not have any other types to replace with.
Breakfast buffet was a standard as you find in every hospital
The hotel will get a cab for you if you need one as there are none outside the hotel.
Decent place to stay
