Booked a room for a five-night stay during my recent trip to Kota Kinabalu. It was the best choice in term of location as it was the pick-up dan drop-off point for TMBT participants. I was given a room facing the city as requested and the view was awesome. Room facilities are good. Breakfast was okay too. Staff were friendly. It is just a few minutes away from Gaya Street where good cafes are found and night market are held on weekends.
Stayed in a twin room with windows for 4 nights. The room was quite spacious; a bit dated but tidy. The bed was springy. It wasn’t to my liking but mum didn’t mind it. I still slept fine until the early prayers in the morning (I think around 5am on a daily basis), so get ready because that will be your morning call. Speaking of noise, the walls are quite thin so conversations in the corridor and room next door can be heard quite distinctly. I appreciated the night light when everything was switched off at night. Basic amenities were offered, including slippers and bottled water (note that tap water is treated with chlorine, so if you choose to drink it, it’s advised to boil it first). Our air con broke on our third day and upon informing the front desk, a maintenance guy came and promptly fixed it which was highly appreciated. Breakfast is a selection of Asian and Western fares, though not a wide selection. There’s an egg station outside where you can order how you want your egg from the chef. Location wise you are in the heart of it all. Everywhere was walkable and there were buses along the main road although I never took it so cannot comment. Overall, it was a decent stay with good service. Disclaimer: This was part of a trip with Trip a Deal.…
A small hotel with basic needs for business travellers. The hotel is right in the city and it is at strategic location where surrounded by restaurants, convenient shops, cafes and complexes and within walking distance. However, it is not suitable for guest that spend more time in hotel as said it is quite basic and suitable for short stay business traveller. Breakfast is kind of basic one, and you will get bore if stay more than 2 days.
Stayed in a windowless room, toilet and room were clean and well maintained, quality of the breakfast was good, filtered coffee and an egg station were available for breakfast. Good for one night's stay
A good selection of buffet breakfast. Eggs cooked to your liking plus Asia selection. Ok room. The bathroom is good. Safe good. Good location, close to Gaya Street and you can walk to the waterfront. Also near some landmarks. Lots of shops nearby.
Stayed here during Christmas and was pleasantly surprised by the guest appearance of Santa + Santarina + Olaf and a church choir caroling at the lobby :) Room is great, try to get a high floor with a view of the city. Good location just opposite Gaya Street weekend market area. Breakfast is not too bad.
This hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of most attractions. It was a 3 night stay as part of a tour. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a buffet, and somewhat disorganised. There were not enough clean plates available, we had to ask on more than one occasion for a plate. The buffet was not replenished when food ran out, it would appear that the staff in the restaurant were run off their feet, which made it rather frustrating for guests. The kettle in our room did not work, it took three trips downstairs to get this fixed.
I stayed here for three-nights before starting out on a scheduled tour. All of the staff were friendly and assisted in any way they could. My room was well-kept, whilst the bed and pillows allowed good nights of sleep. Although there could be noise from outside, this didn’t disturb me. There were plenty of food options for breakfast, plus the coffee was decent enough. I would certainly consider staying here whilst in town.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a tour of Borneo, nice hotel, not sure how good it was as we had no point of comparison in Kota Kinabalu, probably equivalent to 2.5 stars in Sydney. Also not sure if it was good value as it was included as part of our tour.
