Spent 6 nights here in December 2016 as a base to see the wildlife in Borneo. Not ideally located for this purpose, it's in the middle of a big concrete jungle and the wildlife is a flight away or at least a 2 hour drive. Also there were no nearby beaches. We were warned before we travelled that there were...

Just stayed there for 1 night in early Dec. Two things struck me when I first stepped into this hotel. Location-wise, it is perfect. Within easy access to almost everything, being in the city centre. The second thing that struck me was related to the ultra-modern design of the room which was actually very tastefully done. I stayed in the...

Le Meriden is currently undergoing a refurbishment exercise and i was given one of the 'refurbished' rooms but it was disappointing to find a clogged shower drain and a faulty shower door. This quickly puts one off. I have been a reasonably frequent guest for some 5 years and to get a city view room was also disappointing. A quick...

** It wasn't "very good" but it wasn't just "average" either so we err on the side of generosity ;) We need a “good” button TripAdvisor!
