Convenient location

The hotel is surrounded by shop lots which is convenient for F&B. Everything bout the hotel is just fine. Cab is easily attainable. Walking distance to malls and the up coming waterfront at KK.

KK City Tale

My single bedroom was small just about enough to fit a single bed. Comfortable and strong shower a plus. No kettle - have to walk to a hot-cold water dispenser near the lift. Area plenty of restaurants and eating places. CentrePoint sort of shopping mall took about 15minutes to walk. Hotel quite a popular place for tourists with a Jap restaurant on the ground floor .

decent hotel in good location

A good base from which to explore KK: the hotel is easily accessed from the airport and it's a very short walk into the city to find food or book tours. The local restaurants and food courts are also good and great value. We actually ended up staying twice, once in a superior room and once in a standard. The former was recently renovated, with a double bed and with a window, the latter was a bit battered and stuffy/musty smelling due to the lack of ventilation and with quite small twin beds. It's definitely worth paying the extra for the superior in my view. Staff are helpful but are clearly chosen for their Mandarin fluency to deal with all the Chinese tourists they have and their English can be lacking.

Not too bad

Not too bad but: TERRIBLE PARKING ATTENDANT. RUDE, ABUSIVE AND UNWELCOMING. Small rooms, satisfactorily maintained. Big bathroom, parking space, central enough to the city. Don't expect too much and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
