Location”

Spacious enough for two in a clean and comfotable room. We asked for a quieter room as we had a room hearing noises from neighbouring shops. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff, we get a room change the next day. Good wifi which is essential these days for surfing and communication. Strategic location which is convenient within walking distance to the bars/restaurants/markets at the waterfront and to Suria mall and Wisma Sabah for foods and shopping. Two minutes walk to many durian street stalls for durian lovers during its season. Grab is the cheap way of transport in town and to nearby tourist places of interest like Tanjong Aru. Highly recommended budget hotel for those looking to stay close to the waterfront.

Neat & Compact”

If you are a solo traveler or a backpacker couple, this is a hotel for you. I love that it has elevator, reasonable price, perfect location slightly near to the waterfront as well as safety. You can't enter as you like, you feel safe here despite the sketchy area. Parking is difficult during the day, but at night it was easier to get a parking but then, not in front of the hotel, somewhere around the block. The bathroom was tad small for at least two adults to fit in, so you can only take turns. The toilet did not have its own bidet. The placing of everything from the shower to the toilet bowl was uncomfortable. The rest of the room and the hotel in whole were good. You will be satisfied. Would recommend if you are not that fussy.

Perfect :)”

I was upset at handing over 150 MYR deposit but this was given back with no problems upon checkout. The hotel is well located in the middle of the city within walking distance to everything. The rooms are very tidy and clean and have all you need (coffee, tea, kettle.) you can request an iron also. the hotel is modern and very well presented and i loved everything about it. No laundry facilities or breakfast but these things are easier enough to locate in the surrounding streets, I loved my stay here and would definately stay again. Highly recommend :)

We had a wonderful time at Qlio Hotel. The rooms are not very big but they are very nicely decorated and give a very warm welcome. The rooms are spotless clean, modern with lovely shower with really hot shower. The staff are very friendly and helped in anything we needed. The hotel is located right next to the night Market where you can have excellent seafood and many other restaurants. The small shopping center right opposite was also very useful. I can highly recommend the Qlio hotel!!

Great location in the heart of KK”

PROS: New hotel with modern fixings, just next to Burger King in front of Hyatt hotel. A short walk to the waterfront with I *heart* KK logo, and just a few minutes walk from Gaya Street. Room was small but comfortable for 1 night stay. Bed, pillows, sheets and shower were excellent! CONS: Small room. TV had minimal channels available. But these are really minor inconveniences. OVERALL: Would stay again and recommend as a good place to stay in KK.

Clean and Comfy Hotel”

To be honest, i did not expect much from this hotel. But, it turned out quite good. Clean big room for single bed room for this price, big mirror (especially for girls which is plus for this price). I requested a quiet room. They gave me 3rd floor room. It was quiet indeed if the door closing would not be too loud every time if your neighbor closed the door. Bed is comfortable but the pillow is too soft. The bathroom was clean but the problem is that every time take shower, the water all splashed out and the bathroom can just get flooded. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in KK on a budget.
