My 18 year old daughter and I stayed here 2 nights before our eastern Sabah excursion. We had a wonderful seaview room with so much happening. Close to markets. Clean rooms, in fact we stayed here again after our rainforest trip and we were looking forward to getting a good night sleep in clean sheets and quiet room.

Le Meridien is a very nice hotel, very centralized located in KK. Though there are also nice hotels like Shangra-la , they are located much further away. So depending on individual preferences, Le Meridien suited our family very well. From front desk, to the restaurant, chambermaids, poolside staff, are wonderful and provides very warm and sincere service. Of course, the...

We stayed there to get our Open Water scuba diving certification. It's highly recommended to get an ocean-facing room, which takes in a good view of KK's water front and the pasar. The location is good, as it is a walking distance from well-known eateries and a short ride to the jetty. The service was also satisfactory.
