        I was looking for place with reserved parking, and WOW hotel has their own parking space (very convenient!). The lobby is pretty, nice, comfy & clean! The staff is nice too. Very easy check in & check out process. The room is nice & comfy (exactly as advertised). The price is cheap compared to what they provided. I RECOMMEND THIS PLACE! Love it ❤️

        Ok la~ good location and spacious room”

        The bath tub is plastic type. Enough place to hang clothes in toilet. Spacious room. One bad thing is parking area looks laoya. Need to get the staff to verify every parking tickets to get free parking. Walking distance to many makan places, but..we still decided to drive around. I hate the renovation above my room (can hear ppl walking around). But, it won't give you any issue if they done for renovation.

        Good location!”

        Not able to see entrance from Google Maps. Small entrance (walk up to 2nd floor) beside Chicken Rice stall. There's another entrance (with lift) at the back lane but feel it's not very safe at night. Walking distance to many eateries and tourist attractions : 888 Hokkien mee, Chendol, Chinatown, Hin Bus Depot, Macalister Road, 1st Avenue Mall, Chew Jetty, New Lane and Street Art. Room is very spacious. We booked the deluxe room with 2 queen size bed. Not suitable for non-family as the bathroom is open concept, glass panel only, curtain is outside the bathroom, even after closing the curtain there's a gap that you can look into the bathroom, hahaha. There's no shower curtain or blinds inside the bathroom. Water pressure is good!

        Friendly staff, great location, amazing room”

        Zero complaints. Nothing less than a clean room with nice decor. A/C had a leak and staff immediately gave us a new (far larger and more luxurious) replacement room. Super near to Komtar for those travelling by bus. Incredible Tong Sent Chicken Rice directly downstairs too.

        Good Choice”

        Easy and free parking. Staff very friendly. Thanks for who make decoration for my anniversary. My wife very shock when she open the door. I think for bathroom curtain need to do something because from outside can see inside. But for me everything very good. Thanks

        Location of hotel is right in the center of town next to Komtar with parking behind. Room was clean and the massage chair is a big plus. Only con was the shower was right next to the door and an unknown guest may unexpectedly pull the curtain while someone was showering. I mean it's great for honeymooners but if it was a group stay there's an uneasy feeling naked inside, would have felt more comfortable it that panel was at least partially smoked. Also was curious whether the spa tub on the top floor provide warm water but both was completely dried and wasn't sure how to operate nor have the time to wait for it to fill up.It needs a clean up first before use. Play area is great with the emulator machine, foosball. The mini pool table needs a new carpeting (too much poked holes). Overall rate 4.5 stars.

        Clean & decent hotel”

        Upon entering, you have to climb a flight of stairs (inconvenient for people with luggage). However, the hotel is absolutely clean and room is spacious. Breakfast was good except for the cold corn and it comes in a set, we don’t get to choose. Overall, very satisfied!

        Good & Nearby KOMTAR”

        I’ve stayed for 2nights with my family. I chose WOW Hotel as I need to visit one of our workplaces in KOMTAR. 3 mins walking distance from the hotel to KOMTAR & Prangin Mall - it was super duper convenient for me which I dont need to rush in the morning to drive & find a parking. Overall it was a great stay. Nice cafe in the roof top too. Kids friendly as well.

        Perfect spot for staycation! In the heart of the city, near to all nice restaurants and shopping malls. Parking lot available. Great facilities provided with beautiful interior design. The only thing that need improvement is the curtain in the deluxe double room. It does not cover the window fully so the room got lit up during daytime.
