    Overall excellent with minor (not so much of an) issues”

    Its a proper hotel that's for sure. 1. Value for money, yes, no doubt about this. 2. Location is great, that is if you have your own transport. Its just opposite the new KK Times Square mall BUT you can't really get there on foot as the nearest crossing is some distance away. You can always catch a cab which is an abundant of them waiting at the front entrance all day long. Its near the airport, the beach and its only 5-10 mins drive to the town centre. 3. Cleanliness is good too. 4. Its a bit noisy when there are other guests at the corridor chatting away how their day went. 5. Breakfast is great too. Its really really complete with tonnes of choices. Its probably due to because the hotel has a high occupancy rate.

    Nice hotel with small investment”

    First of all, the rate is extremely low, compare to others. Eventhough there is some problem at first with online booking, the staff kept updating me. The breakfast is so-so with combination of Malay Chinese Western and some korean food. Highly recommended.!!👍

    overall is fine but a bit far from city centri. hotel provide free shuttle service to city centri but only operate from 10am to 7pm, we have to spend RM15 for taxi to city centre for 1 trip, thro and flow is RM30, if you added all taxi fares best pay higher to the hotel located at city centre.

    room, location and staff

    good and very relaxing.They served with a very varienty brrakfast with choices of salad bread pastry etc.but it will be better if they can add on ala carte menu on breakfast choices. Maybe some french toast or omellete will be much better. Anyway it is still a plesent stay I had at Ming Garden Hotel. Thank you so much for the lovely stay.

    receptionist unable to handle client. Luckily theres a manager in duty which is able to handle my situation that day. The only thing i appreciate is the manager’s urgency. Breakfast was okay. My room was not being cleant during my stay. Not sure the cleaner on duty simply missed out cleaning my room 2 days in a row. Not recommended for business traveller. Dont even have a simple printing service.

    Booked the normal room with 1 Double Bed, no Breakfast option (can't remember the room type though) but unfortunately when we arrived in the evening, only the rooms with 2 single bed option were available. Reception staff immediately gave us a complimentary upgrade to Junior Suite (still no Breakfast option but we never wanted that anyway) on the spot. This hotel has always been a favourite and this exceptional service just adds to the reason of why we love staying here.

    No room (Deluxe Residence) available as per booking. Hotel offerring me with Junior Suite as replacement without extra charges. Unfortunately when we try to enter the room,there have other pupil inside it..it was suprised my access card can open the door..luckly the pupil lock the door with the chain..suggestion if management can upgrade the system to avoid the incident happen again.
