If you want something a little smaller, I have heard good things about the Mya QT and Bambino.
i have to agree with him here. the KM's are one of the best single hosed hookahs out there. However they are tall, running at about 24 to 30 inches depending on what you pick. But if you want something small, around 14 inches go for a QT or bambino. I own a QT and it smokes great. Better than some hookahs ive smoked out of before
