We stayed in a club room, so comfortable. Our time in the club lounge made our stay, we felt so welcomed and relaxed. The staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble - we would like to thank Yusiff and Wendy for making our stay, they are a credit to the hotel. Would defiantly stay on our next holiday. Such...

Travelled to KK to attend a family wedding. We spent four days at the Le Meridien following a friend's recommendation and after reading many reviews of KK's hotels. From check in to departure, nothing was too difficult for the staff. They were all helpful, friendly and welcoming. After 12 hours of planes and airports, it was so nice to be...

Room was great- large and comfortable. Views of the pool and the bay from the 9th floor are spectacular and hotel overlooks the night market- so easy access there; this is a must see/do while in KK. Hotel location is good for the older part of town and waterfront. Breakfast buffet is varied and plentiful, check-in smooth and quick, concierge...

We stayed overnight here on our way to Sandakan, we had requested a NON Smoking room/floor. We both asked that question again as we were being checked-in, to be told, that we did have a NON Smoking room. As we entered the lift we realised in fact we were on a smoking floor, we decided to check the room just...

Stayed here 15-26 May 2012. This is a first class hotel in every way and at £90 or so a night it is unbelievable value for money. Perfect location, fantastic facilities, exceptional service. The hotel can not be faulted at all. (However, it really is about time ALL 4 and 5 star hotels provided free wi-fi in rooms). This is...

We checked in for 1 night in Le Meridien after our climb. The folks at the front desk were super-helpful. Our passport/credit card was packed in the suitcase and we desperately needed a room. They checked us in and allowed us to settle down and then we gave in the docs. And they upgraded us to sea view room! The...

Le Meridien has everything you want in a hotel. It is in a great location...across the street from the night market and handcrafts markt and less than a couple of miles from the Jesselton Jetty with a view of the 5 TARP Islands as well as walking distance from Sea Sanctuary, the Sunday market and two malls.

I have mixed feelings for this hotel which I hope will assist anyone. The staff were excellent and the GM made herself known at breakfast of the first morning which was impressive and you certainly dont get that everywhere. The hotel is classed as one of the few 5* hotels in KK and although I wouldnt disagree with the quality...
