We have stayed in KK twice before, once at the 5* Shangri La and another time at Eden 54, the backpacking hostel. Both great and at different ends of the spectrum. The Klagan is somewhere in between but offers fantastic value for money.
I'm not a fan of mid range hotels, I find them depressing. I would rather blow out or rough it. When we booked a room here therefore as part of a group of friends traveling, expectations were low.
I was very pleasantly suprised therefore by both the room and the fantastic location.
We supersized our booking and had a large room overlooking the harbourfront which for GBP50 or Sing$100 per night was excellent value. It was comnfortable and clean and just a stride from the pubs and restaurants.
Minor issues with this hotel include:
- no breakfast
- corridors haven't been brought up to the same standard as the rooms / lobby (doesn't really matter but you feel like you are in the set of the Shining once you leave your room!)
- no mini bar
but for the price we paid, there is very little to compain about.
