Positive Reviews

Clean and Simple, Popular with Couples

This clean and simple hotel proved to be extremely popular with sightseeing couples and those on short stays in the city. Guests who planned on spending most of their time in the city rather than in their rooms were happiest here. Likewise, this was a popular pick for those looking for a single night’s stay close to the area’s airport.

All the Basics, Value for Money

When it comes to amenities, this may not be a full-service luxury property, but it is certainly more than adequate when it comes to meeting the needs of its guests. Air conditioning and Wi-Fi come as standard here, as do en-suite bathroom facilities. Given this, many felt that the property offered great value.

Excellent Location

Finally, the location of this hotel seemed to please just about everyone. Set in the heart of Kota Kinabalu, the property offered great access to the city’s various markets as well as a wide selection of eateries. Many also liked that it was located very close to the waterfront/jetty area and situated close to a local taxi rank.

Negative Reviews

Small Rooms and Bathrooms

If there proved to be a single consistent annoyance among guests regarding this property, it would be room size. Simply put, many commented that units as well as the en-suite bathrooms and shower areas here were simply too cramped for comfort. Couples and groups really struggled in these tight spaces.
