Stayed 3 nights. Selected this hotel because it was cheap and centrally located for walking to local restaurants, Jesselton Jetty and markets. Clean , comfortable room with quality tea and coffee provided. A little street noise at night. Very friendly, helpful staff.

But my partner and I were pleasantly surprised with our short term accommodation. It was clean, comfortable and well presented. The most significant factor was the staff though, who made us feel...

We arrived from Brunei into KK before embarking on a 3 week drive holiday / excursion through northern Borneo . The hotel was central, lots of shopping and restaurants close by. The room was comfortable, a little tried. But clean. The staff were fantastic. It's a good hotel to consolidate your onward travel plans, it's not expensive . They don't...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in October 2013, we booked through Agoda, the website shows a restaurant and cafe there is not one, for breakfast you have to venture out and the only places close to hotel are local food.
