Our family of 5 adults stayed here for 5 nights at the end of June and found it a very good place to stay. Previous reviews about the age of the place seem a little unjustified. Yes, there is a little wear and tear but the styling throughout I suspect is based on a "tip of the hat" to the old British Raj with the dark brown leather suites, old photos of KK and and dark wood used throughout. My gym boys found the work-out area with spa,sauna and hot tubs to their approval and the pool area was a lovely
escape from the hustle in the street below. Food was typical of a large chain with somewhat overpriced and perhaps dumbed down local variants for the international tourist, but hell, show me one that's not in any of these regions of the world. Rooms were clean and spacious and the location opposite the markets is spot on. Wi Fi worked but was time and location limited unless you took the upgrade package. Will happily recommend this hotel to friends with families who want to visit KK without reservation.
