There's more than one water dispenser on each floor, and the property is walking distance from the waterfront, where there a lot of local food to try. However, the soundproofing is bad and you could hear the doors closing on the same floor. On top of that, I'm not sure if the room has been properly cleaned, as the electric kettle is still half full when we checked into the room and that is extremely worrying especially in this time of pandemic.
This is a small hotel located near the marlin roundabout in central Kota Kinabalu. I stayed there for 3 nights whilst on a dive weekend in October. Clean and modern fittings. 24 hour reception. Tiny bathroom. Troublesome wifi: have to continually re-enter the wifi code, but on the plus side the wifi was fast enough for Netflix streaming. Comfortable large bed. End of corridor room but still quite noisy: street noise, aircraft noise and neighbour noise. Friendly staff. Paid around 120 MYR a night + tourism tax of 10 MYR a night. Overall quite good value for money despite the noise. Earplugs required.
Located nicely close to the market. Shower looks good but room was much smaller than expected. Pictures look much better than reality. Can see the marks of use. No refrigerator! Aircon in the aisle could be cleaned one day. There are stated a alot of rules what to do and what not to do. In my opinion a little bit pricy for what you get. Would take another hotel next time which is maybe 150 m farer from the sea front since everything is quite close in this town. Staff is very nice. Internet also ok!
First the good stuffs: Rate is cheap, location (but not the environment) is good, staffs are friendly, room is basic but clean. Then comes the not-so-good stuffs: Dustbin in the room not cleared when we checked in, the basin and water hole in the shower didn't drain properly causing overflows, noisy as we heard people shouting birthday song at 12am (not surprising as the hotel is located in a building next to many other shops).
Stayed here for 5 nights. The room is small and basic but suited me travelling solo. The bed was comfortable although there was an obvious stain on the sheets when I arrived ( which was changed after 2 nights ). The air conditioning was cold ( although you have to turn on a switch on the wall before you switch on the A/C ). My room had a safe, a luggage rack, and one seat/stool. There was no fridge. Had kettle and cups and some sachets for ?coffee ( did not check ). TV had some English programmes. Window overlooking the street but cannot open the windows. The bathroom was small - the shower cubicle is not quite square and the door nearly touches the toilet when it opens. The shower head is removeable, which was a blessing, as it is so high and the shower so small that when turned on at a reasonable pace, it completely misses you and hits the glass behind. You have to have the pressure quite low to get it to fall on top of you, and you have to remember to hit the switch ( like the A/C ) to get hot water for the shower. When you open the shower door, water runs onto the floor. There were lots of power points near the bed. The rooms are cleaned daily. No water provided, but there is a water filter near the elevator. There is only 1 elevator but its only a small hotel and I never had to wait more than about 30 seconds. There is nowhere to hang clothes, other than a rack with 3 hooks on the wall. No hangers. No shelves. The location is close to things, can walk to the waterfront, close to food outlets and shopping malls. Money changers in shopping centre 200m away. Some tours can be booked through front desk - did one to Mari Mari cultural village which was very enjoyable. Staff are friendly and helpful. They call taxi driver Peter, who is reliable and always on time and will take you to the airport for 30RM ( or 40 after midnight or early morning ). He even picked me up after a Sandakan day trip which was great. The walls are a bit thin - could hear someone next door snoring and the cleaner in the other room during the day. This may be an issue for light sleepers if you have noisy neighbours. Overall, for the price I paid, thought it was reasonable value for money.…
This is the second time I stayed here. clean place with basic offering. it's not a full fledged service hotel, so don't expect bell and whistle. if you are looking for a clean place to stay this could be it. the hotel is only accessible through the pass card, so it's quite safe and secured the location is very good. 7-eleven in the same row, Burger King around the corner, plenty of restaurant there. and on the night I stayed there, there was a night market; I'm not sure whether its a nightly affair or weekly stuff. the place is stone throw away from waterfront which means more restaurant and market.
This is a lovely hotel in the very centre of town, close to the Waterfront and to all shopping centres and restaurants. It is almost next door to the Hyatt and you can stay here at a fraction of the cost. The hotel is extremely clean, impeccable throughout, with modern aircon and great bathrooms. Reception staff were very welcoming and efficient.
Good air con, comfy bed, good location right next to seafood night market. 24 hour reception. Felt safe and clean. No storage space to unpack but we were only there one night. Room very small but was only there to sleep before an early start to Gaya Island.
This hotel is situated in a great location. Check in was smooth. Staff are friendly and helpful. The room is clean, bed is comfy but ac was noisy. There was a foul smell outside the room corridor and lift for pass 2 days.
The hotel location is great, near to Suria Mall, walking distance to markets and eatery. The hotel is clean, staffs are very friendly. However, the sound proof system is not so good, can hear people talking outside the door. There is no minibar in the room, but the staffs could help you keep chill items in the fridge at lobby floor.
