The room was RM83 per night and, as others have written, not very big but not really too small if you're not planning on staying in all day. Clean, maybe not the cleanest ever but certainly nothing that would bother me. Staff is friendly and helped me organize a day trip. Private shower. TV, although none of channels were in...

Yes, the rooms are teeny. So much so, that you can shower and use the toilet at the same time. However, I've had smaller rooms in London, where the experience was quite miserable. What made this different? The fact that they had very fast and consistent wifi, the cleaning service was spotless, and the restaurant directly connected to the hotel...

This hotel was great. Yes, the rooms are small, but why would anybody be spending time in them?! The staff were absolutely superb and so so friendly. Location good, just a few streets from the waterfront and the amazing night market. Clean rooms, tv set, air con, hot water, decent bathroom. When I go back to KK, I'll stay there...

Upon arrival, I presented my agoda booking with the receptionist. I was given a key to a room and directed where to go. I was confused because the room number...

We enjoyed our stay here .The staff are really friendly and helpful and the rooms ,although on the small size , are clean and functional. We asked for a room away from the street so weren`t bothered by noise ( and KK is a city after all) It`s good value and a 10 to 15 minute walk to catch the...

My friend found this hotel online, and I thought "why not try it instead of a hostel" - RM75 for a double, attached bathroom sounded nice. Pro: location is good, rooms are clean, you have your own bathroom, staff was pretty friendly, WiFi Con: they chagred RM85 in the end (some tax apparently), rooms are very small (I had bigger...

We spent 3 sleepless nights in a noisy backpackers with a share bathroom for 65 MYR in KK. We ran into another couple who had stayed here for a few nights and they recommended it. Over all it is small but has TV, air con, bathroom, and was only 75 MYR for a double. Good value. If someone thinks this...
