Located just a few blocks from the train station, Kings is cheap and convenient.
Although rooms look a bit worn out, this simple accommodation option has enough perks to overlook some minor plumbing issues or an occasional boisterous guest roaming the hallways late at night. The rooms come with a small table with chairs, mini-fridge and free WiFi. Add in the air-con and TV and you have all the comforts of home. There is a slightly 'used' feel due to the grey wall-to-wall carpeting, but the friendly housekeeping staff take to their jobs with gusto in keeping things neat and tidy. It appears they are slowly upgrading but unfortunately the ensuite bathrooms are not high on the priority list and remain in the cold shower only category. Staff are quite friendly and helpful, making the lobby a comfortable area to hang out in. A few regular tuk tuk guys stationed outside the door are happy to negotiate any transportation options with you.
