NileGuide Expert tip:
The former name was New King's Hotel, now its the Kings de Nathan Hotel.
This 35-year-old property has been refurbished but has kept its low rates (it usually offers discounts on its rack rates, so be sure to ask when making a reservation) and interesting location near the jade and night markets and a Tin Hau (Goddess of the Sea) temple make it recommendable. Otherwise, it doesn't have any facilities, its tiny rooms are rather plain and dark, and the tiled bathrooms lack counter space. There are only six rooms on each floor, a good thing since corridors are barely wide enough for one person. Expect to wait for the hotel's one elevator. This is a good choice only for budget travelers on the go, since you probably wouldn't want to spend much time here anyway.
