            Give Kingston a miss if stay at KK Times Square area.”

            One of the many hotels around Imago, KK Times Square. Look elsewhere is you want to stay in this area. The hotel reception looks impressive but have poor front desk service to start with. Room condition is not to expectations on the price we paid. The room is really bare. Not even a hook or hanger for you to hand clothes. Just a bed and small dressing table with poor tv reception. Toilet is in poor condition, ie shower either too hot or too cold. Taps tend to drop off from the attachment and not working at times. Calling room service require is to pay for additional amenities such as pillow or a bath towel. This only happen on cheap Gaya Street motels. We have stayed in a few other hotels next to Imago at similar rates and they are much better than this one. Wrong choice for us.

            Good location for air traveller to stay in, close to the airport and the city. For traveller by land they have to pay for the parking car fee and charges by hour not per entry. Hopefully the hotel management will give special car pass for the hotel guest in the near future. (Charges per entry).

            The room felt lacking, there’s not even glasses provided for the guest. No soap bars were given, not even teabags (the normal standard stuff even cheap hotels gave to their customers). The water pressure is also a bit problematic.

            we stayed 2 nights. enjoyed the double deluxe room. small but fit 1 extra single bed for our children to jump on. Everything seems ok to me except the toilet door. It was tricky at first closing and opening it. Although I got used to it but the management should really replace it because it's not user friendly plus the narrow opening of the door could cause injury to anyone. The walking disrance to Imago is a huge advantage. I got myself n my children walking around the nearby compound . The noise from the planes to me didn't bother my sleep but my wife said it made her wake once or twice. the shower gel at the shower area is slightly above standard which is good. The staff was helpful. the price of one extra towel for two nights was rm6 which is ok.

            it was our first time staying at this hotel. it took quite some time for the hotel to check in eventhough we came around the check in time. this was because the rooms are still waiting to be cleaned by housekeeping. but once we got our rooms, it was very nice and comfortable. there is a 24 hour mamak shop nearby. the only thing was about parking as we had to pay accordingly parking ticket. as for location it was just walking distance to imago shopping mall and we did not have to use our car to go there.
