This is a Trusted Review. Why?

the location is very good, it's convient for you to travel the center of the city. it's clean. but the blanket is very thin, and you may find the same ones on sofas in the rainforest cafe, if you want another one , you will be charged for 5 RM. All in all, it's a good choice for you to stay in KK.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The stay at Rainforest Lodge is good with basic accommodation. Arrangement got better on the last day when the manager of the lodge is around, and definitely good service from the manager.

My advise is not to book under this website, Travellerspoint. Manager of the lodge deny any linkage with this website, even though I've paid the deposit for booking! I have no idea of how to get refund from the deposit I've paid here, since everything is done online.

Management of Travellerspoint, please contact me regarding the refund of deposit for the booking by mail: sasakong@gmail.com
