Arrived tired and weary at 2am after a long flight. We were warmly welcomed by staff, check in was fast and we were up in our room in no time. The room was large and appealed to my tastes with a fantastic sea view. All amenities and bathroom were in perfect working order. Showing its age just a little but...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

"I had an entire sea view room all to myself, one of the 288 contemporary styled rooms of Hyatt Regency Kinabalu. I was quite surprised of its size, as it was really spacious even for two people. There was even a workstation, where some welcome treats and a note were waiting for me. The bathroom was split into two, with...

We stayed for 4 nights at the Hyatt, in both sea view and city view rooms. Definitely worth the extra for the sea rooms but make sure you ask for a room with a bath. The sunsets were amazing and having a sea view room meant you got to enjoy them. The staff were so friendly and the breakfasts were...

Value for money, of course the price is extremely higher than other hotel in kk. But the service is the best among all. Rather than staying at shangri la. I prefer staying at hyatt because of the service and the recognition by their staff.

We were so impressed by this hotel. Great location and despite the appearance immediately seeming dated and in need of a lift, we were so impressed by the cleanliness, quality and service here. The staff were warm , friendly and helpful. The service was always prompt and good. The hotel is very clean and well maintained, if slightly dated. We...

Concierge and door service really warm. Friendly service at all times. Rooms not vacuumed and bathrooms still had hair. Air conditioning need to be room controlled rather than centrally controlled. Have always been laced on higher floors so not too happy with this.

As usual visiting my regular hang out place... enjoy the companion. The only thing upset me the band performing at Shenanigans is far below the expectation. Boring.... the rest was excellent. From the Bartender right up to the Manager. Very good PR. Keep it up Philomen and his team. DJ Syaiful 🖒🖒🖒👍👍👍

We initIally booked Hotel eden 54 for a 3 night stay but unfortunately after discovering bed bugs and empty rooms at that so-called hotel (more like a hostel), we decided to walk away and search for a cleaner accommodation. We walked in to this hotel and luckily we were able to find a discounted deal online. I am so grateful...
