Excellent hotel!
An excellent 4 star hotel! Felt more like a 5star. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Buffet breakfast was very good they had a variety of international dishes. Shuttle service was very good and easy to book onto. Room was very big and bathroom was very clean.

Very Good8.0
good stay
hotel was great and had everything we wanted for our last night in KK. the only thing that would help, a shuttle to the airport. there is an airport bus but Ming Garden are just too far out of town to catch it and since it's an expensive hotel the taxi charges a lot more. other than that, can't fault it.

An over rated hotel
Room 570 is located in a dead corner even house keeping staff would missed. The door to the wardrobe fell off once open. The bathroom is so small that you can hardly turn around once in there. The door to the shower room is badly positioned that you will sure wet the whole bathroom floor. It is a double room but you only get a towel and no floor mat on some days.
