Tucked away on what seems to be an industrial area part way between the city centre and the airport, this is otherwise a perfectly respectable modern mid-range anonymous hotel that feels like a European or US chain. Nice bulk-standard room, ok service, ok breakfast. Routinely average and a safe bet.

Quite ok hotel, however I would suggest to get something directly in the city center, as KK city center is very small and it's pointless to live 10 minutes by taxi - 20MY, 30MY from airport to hotel (shuttle bus helps, but won't solve the time when you need to go to the hotel and go back to the city)...

Reception area and staff very nice, but that's it. Rooms smelt and were dirty. Towels were frayed and had a hole. Carpet stained. Desk chair stained. Toilet roll not changed and no spare. Not close to anything. Would not recommend.

On the webpage the description read "Riverside tranquility, comfort and convenience". OK, it is a 7-10min taxi ride to KK center/water front. But KK is not such a big city so most hotels are central. but to call this place a riverside and tranquil, is an exaggeration. (see pic of view). There is a river/canal flowing by on the other...

The reviews seemed positive and the other hotels in central KK were booked up (tip to self, do not leave hotel bookings till the last minute), so we booked two nights here after coming down from Mt Kinabalu. The hotel itself is pretty standard. But the rooms do not have any central air-conditioning. So when you leave the a/c shuts... More

We stayed in this hotel during Hari Raya season in 2016. Arrived at the hotel quite late and unfortunately hotel's cafe has already closed, so we decided to go out. After a quick check-in, the staff offered us to call a cab. Within minutes, we already sat at one of the nearby seafood restaurants. Our hotel room on 1st floor... More

Stayed for 3 nights in this place. The room is just standard, neat and clean. You need bring your own toothbrush. Wifi is not strong enough. Location is a bit far from the downtown (tourist area). Need a taxi to go downtown about 7 mins.

Located on the outskirts of town- only a few km's however too far and humid to walk across large highways to get to anything of interest.
