Hotel is very comfortable, clean and cheap. Has ample parking space and not too far from the downtown, only five minutes was able to arrived at Jalan Gaya which is very famous in Kota Kinabalu. Servicing of cleaning of the rooms was also very good.

on our trip through asia for 2 months stayed at the hotel garden twice. we did choose the budget option, which meant we did not have a window, however clean linen, clean room, aircon, tv, mineral water, and the best ensuite shower in asia!! staff very accommodating and friendly/helpful, wifi access, generally would definately recommend.

Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed at for one night (supposed to be a second but I changed my plans!) Dirty, bugs, noisy and broken appliances (free internet in lobby, if you could get the machine to turn on).
