Stayed here for 2 nights for business. The journey from the airport was relatively straight forward. Take the taxi from outside the hotel and the journey is about 15 mins. Just want to clarify that the hotel is facing the sea (NOT beach!!!). If you want beach it takes about 15-20 mins on taxi to get there. The hotel is...

My family and I chose this hotel for its central location while visiting the area. The hotel is easy walking distance to several restaurants and the local markets.

Went for a short weekend trip in KK, and as far as I know, there isn't much variety when it comes to accommodation in this place so Le Meridien is a fair compromise. Pros - Good location, fairly lively surroundings. If you're staying in KK town, everything will be walkable. If you're travelling out of town (say to a trip...
