Great and smooth check-in.”

I check on the 30th Sept 2020 through agoda, request for late check-in and late check out instantly received response through email from Gaia95 on the request. As soon as i check-in i was suprised on the room was cosy and you get everything u need cable tv, hot shower, aircond, aminities such as coffee/ Tea.. for a bargain price is worth it! And the most important thing is cleanliness of the room is top notch and very near to some of the famous hawkers food at gaya street and shopping malls. This Hotel need to be in top 10 of affordable stays for budget travellers in KK area!! Will be back again.

I stayed in a queen room with a window and I loved my room! I had no issues with noises from outside and it was so fun waking up to see the Sunday Market right outside my window! 10 minute walk to Jesselton point for boat trips to other islands and a 15 min walk to the center where the main bars and markets are. Staff members were very kind and easy to talk to. Restaurant next door was delicious. Highly recommend! Looking forward to my next stay!

Overall great stay and location. Matches up with the photos with solid WiFi, hot water and cleanliness. The rooms may be smaller to average but are designed well to maximize space. The showers were big to make it easy to rinse off after a day at the islands. Overall highly recommend and is now my go-to hotel for KK. Grab drivers and taxis easily knew it was too.

Good hotel, bad guest(s)”

The hotel itself is excellent - the location and accessibility is good, and the staff are wonderfully helpful to guests. It is clean, and fairly-well maintained. The showers had good pressure and hot water. Beds were comfortable, and pillows were quite new. Despite this being a non-smoking hotel, I was unfortunate enough to have a floor mate who smoked. The room I booked did not have a window, which made it worse. Fortunately, he/she was instructed to stop smoking after the reception staff was informed of the smell permeating the whole floor. I wonder if hotel management actually enforced the RM 100 fine for smoking on the premises. I would definitely stay here again, and hope that I get a more civic-conscious floor mate next time.
