Nice location, a bit moldy

Very large room with a great view. Price included breakfast so I think it was a good price. Comfortable bed but the pillows were terrible. Room was a little damp and moldy in the bathroom.

Great place to stay

My family stayed over for Hari Merdeka to visit extended family near by. The hotel was great. The smoking lounge was a nice quiet place to relax and breakfast in the restaurant had a good variety of local and western dishes.\n\nService was quick and efficient. I will be booking here whenever I visit KK.
