LK The Empress is an affordable 4-star hotel, not very large, but with a perfect location: it’s situated right near the ocean, on the Beach Road, and you can enjoy the view of the sea from your suite. It has surprisingly low prices for its class: just 65-75 bucks for a Deluxe suite; if you want to have a room with the sea view, you’ll have to add around $10. The LK hotel is relatively old, but it is kept in cleanness and its staff is well trained. You won’t have to wait for too long to get checked-in or checked-out, as a rule. As well, they make every effort to comfort their guests.
The set of conveniences in this hotel is rather large: several pools, including the relatively large outdoor pool and small pool for kids, restaurant and coffee shop, plus a room service available 24/7. Wi-Fi is fine and is accessible from everywhere, from your suite to the outdoor pool and restaurant. Gym is large and well-equipped. However, air conditioning is not always functioning properly: it’s often too hot to exercise.
Most important is the possibility to have visitors without a need to pay extra. From my experience, you may be asked to provide the ID, to visit the guests in this hotel, but it’s not a problem usually. You can bring a girl to your suite anytime, even in the middle of the night; if you don’t need an extra bed (which is unlikely), you won’t have to discuss anything with the staff. They don’t show any unnecessary curiosity regarding your personal life.
