The hotel is very close to the city center (Jetty, waterfront, night market, good restaurants). The staffs were very nice and happy to switch rooms for us upon request. Room view was not very nice, though, but admittedly it is hard to find a good view with how buildings in KK are placed.

Soundproofing between rooms is very poor. Other than that, the room is clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel is awesome. The staff are very friendly and attentive.

Perfect KK base!
The Mandarin was the perfect location, the staff were all lovely - so friendly and helpful. I had the pleasure of meeting the manager who gave me some great advice, I booked for 2 nights and stayed for 3! If you need a comfortable base in KK because youโ€™re out exploring then this is perfect. Small, compact but perfect for me a solo traveler wanting to spend my days exploring. My bed was very comfortable and the shower was lovely!
