Very close to the airport, and we arrived at 2100. The tour operator met us, but said he needed 10 minutes but took 30 He had arranged dinner, and we were tired and hungry. Did not appreciate his taking so long repeating what was written down. Great dinner. Mediocre breakfast. Lovely area, rooms and surrounding amenities. Very small. Unfortunately we left at 0630 next morning, so was a waste to be there. But a lovely place if you had more time.

the hotel is located few KMs away from the city center, staying away from the busy traffic, but will not recommend for travelers who don't have their own transport, nothing much around the hotel. in general the hotel is very clean and in good condition, maybe due to its still relatively new. the room size is good, but in-room amenities are inconsistent, some of the items has not been replenish. Hotel front dest staff are average in service and friendliness, but the restaurant staff are worst, slow in service and don't really bother greet their house guests...will i come back again?....yes if i just need a clean room to sleep when other hotel are fully booked..

This is the first time I checked into this hotel. It a new hotel of more than 100 rooms. Overall its a good affordable accommodation, however a bit far from the city centre. For people new to the area you need to find your way to look for eateries in the vicinity. However renting a car will be a good alternative to move around.

Took a weekend break to Kota Kinabalu for a short drive and stayed at the Hotel No 5 as well as to the enjoy the night club at the 11th floor of the same hotel. Rates are resonance and a bit far away from hustle and bustle of city life.

Due to a route cancellation we found ourselves in Kota Kinabalu overnight and were attracted by the price and proximity to the airport. Compared to similarly priced hotels and lodges in Borneo our experience here was very bad. Appreciating that tobacco use is more prevalent here than we are accustomed to, we were still surprised to be checked into a smoking room by default. It honestly smelled like somebody had been smoking in it right before we entered. Additionally the carpets were filthy with large dark stains throughout the entryway and adjacent the bed. We quickly requested a non-smoking room and were moved to the seventh floor which appeared to be under construction. I would describe our second room as "light smoking" rather than non-smoking but at least we could get to sleep. Carpets were better, but I'm still shocked to see reviews describing this hotel as clean or new. We used Uber to arrive to the hotel and the driver circled twice before successfully locating the entrance which is poorly marked at the rear of the building away from main roads. The next morning two Uber drivers cancelled on us being unable to find the entrance and not understanding our instructions. Unfortunately a large/deep ditch surrounding the property means walking to the main road is not an option.

This isnt our 1st stay. Our 1st experience was in Feb 2017. That time the rooftop bar was under construction. We decided to stay here again mainly because of the price. Its a budget hotel with all basic amenities. There is no gym/ pool. Your hotel room is spacious and comfortable. This time we had our room for 7D6N..for less than rm900! Here are my lists of pros & cons: Pros: - Quiet location. Away from busy traffic - very close to airport KKIA, less than 10mins - close to QE hospital/ local food spots eg Damai, Luyang - Fresh towels, toiletries refills, clean room everyday - Complimentary Breakfast ( u can ask for eggs of your choice) - Hung Xing seafood restaurant is walkable distance -Uber/ Grab friendly - Helpful receptionist - Prompt customer services -Rooftop bar for sunset views, hangout spot with afforadable liquor price - sitting area outside lobby fr smoking Cons: - limited varieties for breakfast (same menu evry other day. There are so many options of local food.) - sausage was not nice - our room did not have tea bags & coffee bags for 3 days. Impossible to miss if cleaning of the room is done daily. - limited Tv channels. - please provide newspaper delivery to evry room - beer prices are expensive
