We visited KK and found the city to be very cozy and relaxing. Though we didn't have much time to see the sights as we were attending a wedding. The hotel is centrally located and spacious.The gym can use a makeover with updated equipment and more light. When I entered, I felt like I was in a locker room. Our...

I've stayed at this hotel several times for work trips and have found it to be professionally run and overall a very decent hotel. The rooms are a good size, the beds comfortable, and the buffet breakfast is extensive. Downsides are the exhorbitant internet access rates (for both in-room wi-fi and at the business centre), and occasional maintenance issue (difficulty...

Our apologies for the inefficient check-in, a 15 minutes process is definitely above our usual standards and the objective is to keep the experience as short but as informative as possible. On a positive note we are happy you liked our location and accommodation standard. Thank you Alex

We knew before coming that this is not a beach resort but would be centrally located. But be prepared this is right in the middle of all the busy markets, shops, food areas etc. Not exactly a place for relaxation. Even in the swimming pool area, you can hear all the horns & traffic sounds. We did enjoy the room...

Here are the things I like about Le Meridien KK: - Two entrances/exits - There is one located at the back of main entrance which I used it when I transferred from City Park Lodge to Le Meridien. - The priceless sea view room which is priced at slight premium. I did not regret about the choice and I wonder...

We stayed here for a few days during our recent Visit to Sabah. This is a huge property right on the sea front. All the different bazars, sea food spots and attractions are located close enough. The conceirge is helpful in planning trips, but you can expect cheaper deals outside. This place has many good food joints all around it....

Stayed 2 nights, big room a little outdated but ok, service great, close to shopping and restaurants I suppose, buffet breakfast was probably one of the better ones on my recent trip, good selection of food. I would return to stay here if I go back to KK.
