If you want a good location hotel but don't want to pay an arm or a leg then this hotel for you.I have been staying here whenever I been in KK. The staff usually very polite at the counter. Not anymore.Their standard has dropped it is not how it used to be. My wife in the past had asked for a hairdryer after her shower.In the past it arrived within minutes. This trip it arrived half a day later.I asked to help turn the Aircon on.Apparently there is a switch by the entrance door you have to turn on before the Aircon will work.It took 3 calls before they turn up.After they arrived homethey scolded you for calling so many times.When u remonstrated that it's very hot without Aircon they chided u for being stupid not knowing about the switch. U wrote a complaint to their management at around midnight. They delete it and knocked at your door at that midnight hour probably looking for a fight!!!You get the picture of the hooligans you dealing with?!!! I m looking elsewhere next time I m in KK.Certainly will not recommend this hotel to anyone any longer!! Frank C…
When first arrived, the surrounding and the building didn't give much impact. Infact been wondering had we made a good choice by staying here. But after checked in, was relieved to see the clean practical room. Situated in walking distance to attraction places. Good wifi coverage. Tv need upgrade on the reception. Other than that really was value for money.
I was here with the wife in KK for shopping n golfing.Most hotels are fully booked so we try this hotel.Room was a deluxe room with a king size bed.Initially it was Rm150 but they reduced to Rm130 after Chinese New Year peak season. Room small but very clean n tidy.There is a safe n hot water available. Location is good.Its just beside Hyatt Regency n Merdeka shopping centre.We shopped at Suria shopping centre which is also. Outside typical malaysian dirty street.If u into hygience n cant stand backstreet dirt definitely not for you. We golf a lot n shop a lot n not in our room much.Opposite is Maiminah malay Restaurant 24 hours.We had our roti n kopi tarek there early morning n then off to golf course.suit us fine. Evening within walking distance we find durian stalls n a little further towards the harbour side we find seafood stalls selling fresh seafood lobster prawn crabs fish n the lot. Its a good hotel at a very good location n the room rate is fair.I would recommend it to anyone who just want a clean place to stay the night! Frank…
Great location as it is walking distance to malls and resturantas. Room was spacious and clean although sometines you can smell cigarette smoke. Reception was friendly, checking in was a breeze. Restroom was ok with shampoo and soap although no toothbrush. Shower was available although hot wate was not as hot as I wanted due to one water heater breaking down. Pricing was reasonable. Only downside was the surrounding area outside the hotel. Overall, it was a good stay. Cant complain with the amount I was paying for a room.
The location of this hotel is almost at the center of kota kinabalu, everything you need is walking distance. Its very near groceries, wet and dry markets, shopping malls, restaurants, night life, convenient stores. A short walk will get you to the waterfront area. Great staff also.
The hotel situated middle of town with walking distance to Philippines market and suria Sabah mall. At night, there is street market nearby the hotel. The room was just nice for travellers with comfortable bed. The bathroom was clean with head shower.
1 City Hotel is in the best location for Kota Kinabalu, such a good base from which to be able to explore. The staff were kind, and looked after our bags for us while we travelled around Sabah. Room was clean and functional, had TV and air conditioning. Very good value for money. It won't change your world, but it definitely does the job!
This was my 2nd times in this hotel. My 1st and 2nd experience were positive. The receptionist are friendly and pleasant. I believe this is very important when you out of your home town you want someone to care. This is a small hotel and 3 floors for the guest to stay. Keep in mind that downstairs have a public car park which in midnight or early morning can be a bit noisy but after few days you will get used to. The location of this hotel is super, just few minutes walk to those attraction place. By the way, you can go and back to the airport by airport shuttle bus just takes you 5MYR while taxi 30MYR. The busstop from the airport bus stolp just a block outside the hotel.
Good location in the city. Lots of restaurants, mamak, Burger King and KFC just around the block. Room are basic, but clean and modern. I wish the wifi is faster at the hotel. It's a budget hotel that is clean, modern and well maintained.
Descent price. walking distance to attraction place such as pasar filipine, night market, shopping complex, airport. I left my belonging inside the room after checkout and the staff immediately before I left to the airport.
