Very pleasant stay

The hotel is very nice and clean. The staff is helpful and friendly. Most important the room is unexpectedly spacious and with style for the rate I paid. An additional advantage is that the hotel is connected to a big mall with a lot of good restaurants and shops. Very convenient to spend time s at night.

Is a good hotel but furniture and fittings start to get aged.

suppose to be a great hotel so you will have a high expectation to it.. after you arrived, you will see a good hotel with aging furniture and fittings.. just like a nice body model with some wrinkles on her face. In general, is a good hotel if you do not put a high expectation.afterall, it is definitely above average.

Can be better

front office staff helpful. the hotel need to spruce up on maintenance. Airconditioning not functioning in first room. Replacement room did not have fused lights replaced and the security latch screws were loose. Had another room change the next day and the screws in the new room were also loose. Have made a report to the management .

Generally its a clean and good hotel, the only cons is the wifi only available in the restaurant and lobby, the room without any sofa or coffee table and is different from what has stated in the website!!

Room is very spacious. Nicely renovated too. Clean and bright. Reasonably priced for a 4star. However, heard the local tour guide mentioned it was only 3star.

The staff were very friendly and

The staff were very friendly and serviceminded. The hotell was very fresh and clean and roomservice quick and wellpriced. The breakfastbuffé was big and the service even there very good. Also the businesscenter is good, and no extra charge. The only thing to remark is the location. If You want to go into the citycenter of KK, You have to take a taxi.
