There are much better options in KK for this price or lower. A bonus is the included breakfast but all in all it's not worth it. The hotel is a bit shabby and run-down, the wifi barely works and often there will be something wrong with your room 9toilet not flushing, shower not working etc.). KK is growing all the time and is becoming much more of a tourist destination, subsequently a lot of more modern hotels have cropped up that offer much more than the Daya for a similar or lower price. Look elsewhere.

1. Check in
-smooth check in but reception staffs not welcoming. After standing for few mins then only been called by 1of the receptionist which i thot wass off duty and just checking the reception area.
-The woman who attended to me during check in did not give information like those other receptionist usually done such as explaining which lift to take to my room, bfast time opened, etc.

2. In Room
- no issue with the room and toilet cleanliness.
- limited space.for 2pax with big body living in this type of room,space will be an issue.

3. Facilities
- If your drving,car park will be an issue for this hotel.
- blanket and pillow for this room was thin.
- No mineral water provided. Water provided only in a jug which was ready filled by the housekeeping.
- heater for shower was not working.
- wifi really sucks. Slow and not working for two devices. It is better to have own internet connection rather than using this hotel wifi.
- laundry beg was not provided.
- Breakfast was ok.

Room was dark, dingy and not a place you would want to spend any length of time in! To add to the poor standard of room the staff weren't much better, the reception staff were unhelpful and it was as if we were bothering them when asking the simplest of things, such as directions and the wifi password. Would not stay here again. Only positive is location and possibly the price but do not expect much for what you pay.

This is my first time visited KK and stayed in this hotel.

Location : Strategic and easy access to anywhere that you want to go if you like to walk around. Nearest to tourist area and surround with public needed.. pharmacy, bank, restaurant etc.. Good location.

Reception : Warm welcome and with smile and friendly greeted by receptionist.

Room : Just nice and comfort.

Room Service : Food was just nice. Service is good.

Hunter's Cafe : Local food.. Borneo Truffle.. Amazing! me and my mum keep on talking about it when we back to KL.

Overall stayed we really enjoy. Will definately recommend to my friend. Keep Up!
