“good location, bad breakfast”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The initial room given was without private shower or toilet, in fact the room only got a mattress (not a bed) and nothing else, I was told the standard room I booked has no en suite , though my check in information did not mentioned I need to shared bathroom. They did agreed to upgrade me for the second night, but unfortunately the first room given the air con did not work and the air con core was leaking, but the second room is fine. The breakfast they serve Nsai Gorong, but the rice and sauce was COLD. The food were cooked at 7 am and by 9am , the food on the breakfast is uneatable.
Location is good, for a budget hotel, everything elso ( lift, wifi, toilet, door) work fine.

Room Tip: room with private bathroom and shower, and check the air condition before accept the room.

We stayed in the family room and the bed was quite comfortable. It is situated in a good location for the Wet Market and a bunch of bars. There's a good laundry just around the corner called Mega Laundries. Poor hygiene evident by very mouldy shower and mould on the walls above the bed. When asked to fix TV it took a while for maintenance to fix what should have been a quick fix. Overall it's a great location and a comfortable bed. Not too bad value for money.

The lobby of the hotel is on 3rd floor. The reception was nice. The process of getting me to the room is below 5 minutes. The room was cozy and nice. The hotel located next to Center Point KK and night market and on Warisan Square building. although this hotel did not provide car parking, i still managed to get the parking easily. Wifi is very good. Overall, i give 4 star to this hotel and i shall come again here.

This hotel is a dump in almost every sense. The only thing in its favor is the fast wifi, once the very unfriendly reception people figured out which password I was supposed to use. My room was tiny, the washbasin was in the room, not in the bathroom, nowhere to work except sitting on the bed, noisy, dusty building work going on next door, very weak aircon, terrible traffic noise and no window at the standard rate, which wasn't mentioned on the AsiaRoom website. Even the downtown location is a problem as the hotel is right under the flightpath as planes take off from the airport not far to the south.

Room Tip: Stay away from the airport flightpath, closer to the mountain

The good - convenient location, adequate facilities, staff are quite friendly. Only problem was the broken wifi for almost a day during our stay, and the staff didn't seem to know how to handle that. The price is slightly higher than similar level hotel in the vicinity.

Reviewed 4 September 2013

I arrived late at KK at almost 11pm, however, I constantly call the hotel to make sure they know about my ETA and reserve my room. It is quite easy to find the hotel as its located at Warisan Square and in middle of town, besides Le Meridien, near Philippine market and night market. Checked in was swift, but the reception guy is not very friendly. I got a deluxe room, facing Centrepoint shopping mall. The room is quite big and very clean, bed is well made, but it does not have clothes cupboard but only a hanger, but its enough anyway. Room service was okay, the change the towels everyday. Overall, the hotel was comfortable and has great location!
