We stayed for 3 nights and we where surprised the size of the rooms and the cleanliness - both exceeded our expectations. We especially enjoyed breakfast on the roof terrace each morning with the pool of terrapins. On a personal note Sandakan is not one of the most appealling cities to stay in but it is home to some of...

Hotel London was surprisingly good value for the 65 RM we paid for a twin room. It's in walking distance of everything in Sandakan, even the Agnes Keith house, if you're good at hill walking. Breakfast is included on the roof garden, but it's nothing special, hardly worth the trek up the stairs (no elevator)

London Hotel is OK, little walk to centre town. Staff friendly but not too knowledgeable.

This place will do the trick if you need a place to stay for the night but it is nothing special. They do have internet, beer, and water for sale so you don't have to go far. The breakfast included is white bread toast and bananas, so you might want to find something else. Not great value for your money...

We booked the Hotel London via email a few days before arriving. It is a decent hotel just blocks from the waterfront. Our room was nice, and the staff was generally friendly as well. You have to pay to use the computers there. The street it was on could have used more lighting at night. We tried to be in...
