What we say: 3.5 stars

Kim Hotel, hidden among several other spots, is a budget-friendly hotel that has become popular for its clean rooms and quiet atmosphere. It's run by friendly Mrs Kim who is more than happy to help with queries. Rooms facing the front of the hotel are slightly larger, and more expensive, than the back-facing rooms and have a small, two-person balcony overlooking the quiet street. All rooms have WiFi, air-con, windows, cable TV, and a small fridge with a minibar. Discounts are offered if you refuse amenities, such as not using the air-con, and a small discount is offered to the large sixth floor room for not using the elevator. They have a notorious reputation for overbooking and readers have complained of reservations not being honoured, so make sure you confirm before arrival — maybe twice for good measure.
