Have stayed at the Gaya Centre Hotel on 2 occasions in the past year and i am already planning my next stay there in a couple months. I must say that the price we paid for the rooms, what we ended up getting was way beyond expectations. The rooms were comfy, spacious and clean. Have always taken the Deluxe rooms...

The hotel do not have wifi in the rooms as vaguely mentioned that there was. Misleading! Celcom 3G is not 'receivable' in rooms facing the city. Nothing much to see of the city in these rooms. Ask for rooms facing the sea. Staffs are helpful.

Just a stone throw away from a shopping mall, Suria Sabah which houses restaurants, stores and a supermarket. A very convenient location especially for family with young children. Jesselton Jetty is only a minute drive from the hotel. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. No baby cot is available and limited parking space.

Excellent location. Totally quiet in room. Try to get a room with ocean view. City views not bad. Pleasant staff. My room/bathroom was fresh, good a/c, ref, safe, iron, hair dryer, good lights, nice linens, carpet was stained which seemed odd but stopped seeing that after a few days. Great location. Breakfast not so great and same daily mostly Asian...

Stayed in gaya centre recently and it was great! The room was spacious, bed was comfortable and our room had a good view of the city. Except for the toilet, ul think that ur in a 4 or 5 star hotel. The free breakfast was okay- the usual beehoon, sausages, egg, fried rice, etc. There's a relatively large mall just...

Can't complain given this is one of the best value buys in KK. It's a little far from the centre, though the town is so small along the seafront that's not a big deal. Right next to a major shopping centre, which is very helpful. Unfortunately, the LAN connection in the room didn't work. Reception told me that when the...

We found this hotel to be much overrated. To start on the upside, the rooms were by and large clean (although small), and the sewage/plumbery in the bathroom was not well done, so that most of the time there was a smell in the bathroom. Further the staff was relatively normal although we found it unnecessary to have two people...

Spent a couple days here. Really enjoyed our stay here, as compared to a hotel that was very close by a similar rating. For the price on Agoda, this place is hard to beat. Good location, air con, tv and very clean. Staff was helpful. Only downside - they advertise internet in the rooms (LAN only and not wifi). We...
