For the price paid (special promo) it's definitely the best value hotel I ever stayed in KK! Spacious room and clean. Counter service staff was very helpful and cheerful too. Location wise, it's unbeatable in the city centre, where you will find Suria Sabah shopping mall just close by and it's within walking distance to the popular Gaya street and many others.

Checked-in with my husband just two weeks post-pandemic, the price for a queen-bed room is below RM100 with city view and partly sea view, and also spacious. We went for the same price at nearby hotel before but the difference is significant. Not sure about the price now, but in terms of comfort and cleanliness, it is the best.
