Positive Reviews

Value for Money in Central Kota Kinabalu

Handy for the airport yet close to central Kota Kinabalu (KK), the overall location of this hotel received lots of praise. While it was popular with those on short stays in the city, it attracted a fair number of leisure travellers given its proximity to KK’s main sights as well as to numerous local eateries and restaurants.

Negative Reviews

Foul Smells and Dirty Sheets

Foul smells appear to be prevalent at this hotel. Guests report that there is some kind of rubbish collection or processing facility located adjacent to this property, resulting in odours wafting into the building from the outside. Inside their units, many reported strong smells of cigarettes. Additionally, there are consistent reports of dirty and stained sheets and linens here.

Problems in Bathrooms

Wear and tear was widespread in units here and proved to be particularly problematic in the bathroom areas. Loose and dangling fixtures and fittings were noted in the uncomfortably cramped showers and toilets. Many felt that these areas are in need of total refurbishment or at least of substantial repair. Also, the shower drains here were incredibly slow to clear.

Incredibly Slow Wi-Fi and Poor Parking Facilities

The Wi-Fi and parking facilities capped off the long list of guest concerns regarding this hotel. Regarding the former amenity, many commented that the Internet connectivity here was frustratingly sluggish, with users consistently struggling to access the network. In terms of parking, while these facilities are free, they do appear to be oversubscribed, with arriving guests struggling to find a place to leave their vehicles.
