                No water in the morning to shower, no free parking..”
                If you drove or rent a car and stay here, be warned there's no free parking provided. You'll have to find a pay per hour parking which can easily cost rm20/day. The most unbelievable thing is there's no water to use the bathroom in the morning when we stayed there. I asked of the staff and he/she said it's pretty common so sometimes you may experience a very low water pressure or none at all and will have to wait for 30 - 45 minutes. Probably won't be staying here ever again that's for sure.

                Overall is good!”
                The location is good, near the waterfront, there's starbucks just infront of the hotel. Bed and room is big and spacious. Cons: the room (405) i stayed in, the aircon wasn't cold enough despite setting it to 18 degree. Was only given 1 Keycard, to activate the electric you need a card.. so you might need to ask receptionist to give you another card (might need a deposit)

                My husband and i made a wise decision in choosing this hotel . It located at prime area . It only took us 5 - 10 minutes to go to Filipino Market and malls . The amenities is beyond what we expected . It is also 5 minutes walk to night bar so no worries if you are drunk or tipsy . No airport transfer provided . They will only help you to call taxi but you can always go for Grab or any e-hailing apps to come here from airport . The towel and blanket is thick like 5 stars hotel . The breakfast is again , beyond what we expect . Free flow of expensive coffee instead of self service coffee and tea is what we love . The taste of the breakfast is superb and the waiter was very helpful . We will stay here again , in future .

                Access Card and Air Cond not function well”
                I was check in late. So they placed me at the room which the access card is under maintanence. I had difficulties few times to use the key to unlock the door whenever I went out. It was so annoying because it would be much easier if I just can use the access card. In addition, the air cond temperature in my room was hardly to adjust using the remote control. My one night stay here was bad experience ever because of these two things.

                This was the noisiest hotel room we have ever stayed in. It was as though there were no windows. The room was right beside the housekeeping storeroom and the housekeepers would gather there in the morning and carried on like they were at a teenage party. I had to open our door each morning where they had the cleaning carts right in front of our doorway and ask them to be quiet. Breakfast was terrible with all the selections that should be hot were ice cold as they would not turn on the burners.

                I have been to KK many times and been staying in various hotels. This is the 1st time 1 stay in this hotel. It is the worst hotel that I had stay. Below are the pros and cons for this hotel from my stay. Pros - near to Water front (there are a lot more hotels which are much better near the water front). Cons - 1) the room door is faulty and they just simply replace another lock. This apply not to my room which I stay but other rooms from my observation. The door can easily open and I do not feel secure. 2) The noise insulation is bad. I can hear loud noise from the bar across the road, the car below and the plane above. The noise will continue until 2am and started again around 6am. Basically, the only good sleep is 4 hours a day. 3) The room is very dark. There is not enough lighting indie the room. Others: 1) Need to pay deposit of RM100 even though other hotel do not need any deposit if booking from Agoda. I feel OK but make sure you prepare when check-in. 2) The breakfast is ok.

                Check in was delayed for a few hour as the room was not ready. a lot of angry customers that day. standard answer was, "housekeeping is doing the cleaning". when i got my room, first thing i did was to clean the toilet as patches of hairs were all around the bathroom.
