Went there on thursday,the eve of a public holiday and stayed at the camellia suite, which is actually 2 rooms at the end of the walkway but they put a door across the walkway, effectively making it into a suite.
Now the good points 1st. The room is absolutely gorgeous with lots of space for the little ones to run and play. Beds are comfortable and plush, towels are big and clean, sofa firm and comfortable. TV is big. Room 1 has a private jacuzzi but the bedroom has no partition, and Room 2 has an induction stove and kitchen sink and the bedroom is partitioned.
Location is fantastic, right below is KSL City shopping centre. Food and shopping aplenty.legoland and hello kitty theme park is about RM60 ride away (7 seater taxi).
Buffet breakfast was pretty decent,standard malaysian spread.
Now the bad.
Not enough lifts to serve the hotel. Always see queues at the lift lobbies. Please note that there are 2 towers.
Wifi is inadequate as well. Thoroughout the stay i always had the system reflect that too many users are logged on.and i dont understand why they only give validity of 1hour for each username and password they provide.
The so-called water theme park is pathetic and expensive! 3 pools with a few water splutting dinosaurs and they call it a theme park? And guess what? The entrance fee is RM50 for adults and RM30 for kids! Madness! If it was RM5 and RM3 respectively i would have paid because the free pool is simply too packed.
But in short, i still enjoyed my stay there partially because of the very nice room and good location.
