Spacious Room with great service
Loved the room size and the view facing the padang. Had a great view of the fireworks for the Malaysia Day celebration. Breakfast spread can be further improve but loving the staff warmth & friendliness especially the trainee by the name Ms. Afrijinia. Housekeeping was super efficient and had the room clean & tidied during our breakfast time. Overall, very happy with the stay and will definitely return again when I'm in KK.
