            I like the way they serve customer, their communications to us especially at the counter were very friendly and good.

            Only one thing at room got a little bit of dust at the back of television, inside the drawer. So make sure the room, toilet and bathroom make it clean.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            Very strategic location.

            Need to improve the cafe. They take some times to clear the table and to add on the food and drink.

          • Older travelers

            The hotel was in the perfect location for being able to walk around the city. Close to the jetty and close to excellant food in the malls and on the streets. The staff of Gaya were very welcoming. The staff we had most contact with was the housecleaning staff and they were so nice and helpful all the time. The breakfast was wonderful with a very good section of Asian and Western food. With the bonus of a fabulous view. I would definately stay at the Gaya Center again and not bother to look for other accomodation.

            It was advertised that there was wifi in the rooms but there definitely was not and for a lot of our stay there was not even wifi available in the lobby. When we were able to get it in the lobby the signal was very weak.

            strategic location, between 2 famous shopping malls in KK. Friendly staffs who ready answer questions. Fast Wireless connection in lobby. Clean room with high speed LAN connection. Powerful hot shower as well

            No a specific room for luggage storage, only place a corner on the lobby. smelly bathroom.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The location is good and staff are very helpful.

            The room is small and there is a smell from the drainage system in the toilet.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            It was value for money. A clean and comfortable hotel which provides sufficient facilities for a stress-free stay. The staff were polite and efficient. A number of restaurants and shopping malls are available within the vicinity of the hotel. It is within walking distance of the local souvenir shops and the jetty that takes passengers to nearby islands.

            The hotel does not provide parking facilities. I had a difficult time parking the car during office hours. The breakfast meal is far from satisfactory. Although there was some variety, after two days I felt as if there was nothing to choose from. Could do with better coffee and quality bread.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Good location next to 1) a building with many travel agencies, 2) a new shopping mall, and 3) the ferry terminals

            Value for money, cleanliness, and location

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Excellent location just minutes from the markets and from the harbour. Very good breakfast. Lovely view on the Gaya Island.

          • Single
            7.4

            The location is very convenient and the staff obliging and courteous. The rooms were clean.

            The breakfast selection could do with some improvement. Not sufficient local cuisine available as optons. The rooms are quite small. The TV channel selection was also very poor.

          • Group of friends
            8.0

            The view from hotel room is not very good at all. We cannot have the seaview from the room. But overall the hotel is good and clean.

            Well located, good rate, friendly

            The view on the sea is very limited due to a new building on the front

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Comfortable beds/room. Helpful and friendly staff

            Foods, dinner was not good at all.

          • Family with children
            5.8

            New but with awful smell in shower room. Mosquetos

            7.8

            Happy to stay there because hotel is near to a shopping complex, restaurants and jetty point to go to islands in kk. Will definitely recommend to friends. Staff are also friendly.

            Limited parking space.
