Location is right at the waterfront. The market is right across the road. Check in was quick and easy. Room is sizeable and comfortable and clean. Clean towels and beddings. Toilet is clean. No breakfast but there are lots of eateries around the hotel.

A value for money business hotel in Kota Kinabalu. Located in the city centre of Kota Kinabalu which is 5 minute way from the airport to the KK city center. Near to the waterfront. Facing the China South Sea. No breakfast provided but outside the hotel lot of restaurant. Easy to walk to flea market.

Friendly staff but poor quality. Room smells of cigatettes (cigatette butt on the floor), not properly cleaned room, bad smell in hallways (Durian?) and the breakfast was absolutely awfull. The only positive things are location and cost.

Its affordable, clean and convenient.The rooms are small and a bit old. Plenty of places to eat around the hotel and everything is walking distance. There are a lot of bars and restaurant at the Waterfront and all are at walking distance.

Staff is friendly but doesnt seems to understand English. Rooms are very old and not clean. Below expectation. Sound proof very bad, can hear guest/staff talking loudly outside. Location is good, just opposite of Waterfront area where nightlife and food is there.
