Room is so spacious compared to same star ranges of hotels at KK. Breakfast wise was okay, decent. At 5-10 min walking distance, there was a local bakery/cafe which offer good and cheap breakfast, with a variety of steamed, baked goods; as well as noodles and economic selection of meals. Walking from Hyatt Regency to central market and waterfront is pleasant. Be sure to check on the sunset from the hotel. KK offers best sunset view.

Extremely disappointing stay. For comparison, I also stayed at the Marriott, Hilton, and Citandines in KK whilst jumping around the island on flights and voyages to different places in Sabah. I rarely write reviews as I travel a lot but when I see this level of degradation and lack of care, I feel compelled to flag up to other travelers. Positives: the staff are very professional and friendly, as well as engaging, no problems there. Negatives: It seems like the building was taken over from some Dodgy hotel from the 1980s and nothing was changed - the woodwork and overall room interior is shabby, with stained carpets , chipped, and scratched wood, ripped chairs. It’s actually quite embarrassing for the brand. The Hyatt on the bund in Shanghai was quite similar - had stayed there a few times, and similar room design with similar issues. Room service has to be ordered via a QR code which does not match the available items… so after you spend time figuring out what you want to eat you have to barter or negotiate with the staff to see what’s available and or if you have the right time order window. It’s completely ridiculous, I ended up ordering Grab a few times to skip the drama. The gym is not bad however, both the shower and steamer were out of order overall spa facilities were dingy and grimy. Long story short - skip the disappointment and explore the competitive set of hotels, which are actually all in the same price band… it’s like night and day, in terms of quality and attention to detail with the other guys!

Rooms are clean although need new carpets. Our access card was not working to our room which was a hassle to go down to the reception a few times to have it rectified. Would have expected this to be checked prior to guest arrival to ensure all in working order. No welcome drinks upon arrival and lack of sofa lounge in the lobby.

Booked here as a treat after a tour if Sabah. All the staff were helpful and friendly. Our room was on the 11th floor, non smoking, clean, had everything we needed. Most of all a fabulous sea view. We particularly enjoyed cocktails by the lovely well maintained pool. The only small down is the building site behind the hotel and the general scruffiness around there, but this is a common occurrence throughout Malaysia

Upon check-in, I was disappointed to find myself in a non-renovated room that carried the lingering scent of smoke from aged carpets. Thankfully, the staff promptly addressed the issue, providing a room change and even compensating with a complimentary breakfast for the inconvenience. The replacement room, located on a high floor and tastefully renovated, lacked a sea view but still contributed to a pleasant stay. The central location of the hotel was a major plus, and the breakfast offered a satisfying selection. Despite the initial hiccup, the attentive service and improved accommodations made my experience enjoyable.

We are regular guests, check-in was smooth and efficient, thanks to Ms. Ka Yee, she was friendly, courteous and professional. Room size as usual was larger than others in the vicinity, comfortable and well-stocked with the usual conveniences for travellers. Housekeeping staff very responsive too. Location is fantastic for shopping and cafes, with Wisma Merdeka and Suria Mall within walking distance. Gaya Street Sunday Market is only a 5-minute walk. Hotel is probably due for a makeover/update.

Very helpful and friendly staff at the hotel. Nice area of the town with spectacular views from the Executive lounge upstairs for evenings and breakfast. Evening drinks downstairs beside the pool area very relaxing.

Bteeakfass selection was great. Tea lounge at courtyard area was a great hang out place while I was catching up with my friend.

Good quality & lifestyle hotel. Good customer experience. Hotel staff are pleasant and helpful. Made your stays at the hotel a bit more luxury with their own ways to excite you … The food & beverage is awesome - try out the Japanese restaurant for dinner and enjoy the nice dining experience with peace and tranquillity
