Hotel Eden 54 really is a quite good choice while staying in KK compared to other hotels for the same money, as many have pointed out before, but for us there were a few small issues which I have no one to blame but myself.
There is no fridge in the room, which for us is a major issue.
This is mentioned on the website, I missed it but management did offer to place a small fridge in our room, so no complaints there.
For us, it ended up being the wrong end of town as we spent time at Sutera harbour marina where we had friend on a yacht and we mostly seemed to be eating at the restaurants that management recommended to us, which, were mostly down the other end of town, again, this would be no huge issue for many as there are several good places close by ( Fatt Kee under Angs hotel and Moon bell being 2), but, it is very close to Jesselton wharf area and restaurants if that's your thing.
*King size bed in room was very comfortable
*A/c was very good, almost too good
*Bathroom was adequate though the hot water in our room was lacking (not really an issue)
*Room size was smaller than expected (Magic Camera) or used to compared to other hotels in our asian adventure, but again, not really an issue.
*There are one floor of steps, but staff helped with baggage, so no complaints, but there are steps.
*Internet connection was not stable enough for my requirements (sadly, I still had to do work online most nights)
*Management were very helpful with recommendations and have good communication skills.
*If renting a car parking "appeared" that it could be an issue as it seemed you would be fighting for a street park
You do get more bang for your buck in Peninsular Malaysia, but for KK, this hotel is a safe clean enjoyable choice if you can live with the few small issues and it will stay on my incredibly short list of viable accommodations in KK.
