We arrived from Brunei into KK before embarking on a 3 week drive holiday / excursion through northern Borneo . The hotel was central, lots of shopping and restaurants close by. The room was comfortable, a little tried. But clean. The staff were fantastic. It's a good hotel to consolidate your onward travel plans, it's not expensive . They don't... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in October 2013, we booked through Agoda, the website shows a restaurant and cafe there is not one, for breakfast you have to venture out and the only places close to hotel are local food. The rooms were not clean, the shower and sink only had cold water. There... More

Spent a night in this basic hotel base on high review score in Booking.com and affordable prices. Upon entering the lobby, you will be welcomed by a strong smell of lemongrass scent. I'm ok with the smell, but found it to be too strong to my liking. I was given a room on the first floor. There's no lift and... More

This hotel is located just off the waterfront, not far from the Philippine markets. I found it to be very clean and comfortable and the prices are very reasonable. The staff were the most memorable aspect of the hotel as they helped me to book further holidays in Borneo, including accommodation and tours in other cities and stored my partner's... More

We were reasonably happy with most aspects of the stay here except for the fact that our young adult daughter had a $50 note stolen from a closed wallet in the zipper-closed front pocket of her bag left in the room we were absent from for several hours. Ok - she should been a little less naive to not have... More

We booked last minute so we weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised. A big room with really comfy beds, big bathroom and everything was clean. The hotel staff were lovely too. There is no breakfast which was a bit annoying as also not a lot of places nearby for breakfast. However, the location in general is great. Just off... More

Hot water is an on off affair here, depending on your room. It's a little tired but good value for money, we paid rm150 a night for their top room, this is what they offered on 2 separate occasions stating it was the only room available, in hindsight I'd say that was a ploy to get us to book the...
