Cleanliness is not an issue, staff is quite friendly too. Location is good if you wanna stay away from the KK town. We stayed here after climbing mount Kinabalu and it's perfect as there's a good massage place around the corner and a good restaurant serving chinese food! Try out Shalom for massage and King Hu for food if you're... More

I had to spend 3 nights there. The staffs are friendly, but the cleanliness needs lots of improvement! I found hairs underneath the pillow cover and bed sheet, ants everywhere, on the wall, on the table and floor. The exhaust fan in the bathroom covered in dust! Most terrible thing is, smoke smell stink up the whole room! I know... More

Arranged a pickup by e-mail--if you're booking through Agoda, you have to do this, since they won't have your flight details. The trip to the airport is only five to ten minutes. The rooms were spacious and clean, although you can tell they have a high guest turnover rate. I saw the guests in the room next door change three... More

Overall is good enough for me, however, the breakfast is terrible. As we have our breakfast at 8 in the morning, imaging we are consider as an early bird to have our breakfast, most of the meals to serve are finish up and no one would refill. I claim some butter for bread at restaurant counter, I swear there are... More

The rooms are fairly spacious and very clean and it's right next to the airport and Tanjung Aru beach. The only downsides are the dreadful breakfast and the fact te wifi only works in the lobby downstairs - despite the Agoda listing clearly stating "wifi in room".

The rooms here are not bad. It is relatively spacious and clean and quite comfortable. This place is near to the airport and not too far from the beach so not a bad location to be. There is no wifi working across the building depite the fact that they advertise in room wifi and it is only abailable in the... More

I stayed here with a large tour group and I can't fault the service provided by the very friendly staff at the hotel. The Rooms were clean and the hotel is conveniently located 5 minutes from the airport. As a result, the hotel can be noisy as it must be in the flight path! I even managed to squeeze in... More

We arrived about 9pm and the airport pickup was waiting for us at the exit. It was only a 10 minute drive to the hotel and check in was prompt. Our room was on the 4th floor and pretty decent for the great price. Room enough with a TV, A/C and simple ensuite bathroom. Water pressure in the shower was... More

I arrived quite late in the evening (~8pm) and proceed to check in. Check in was hassle free and fast. The receptionist even asked whether we need an airport shuttle for the next day which I politely declined as I have my own transport. But I do request for a take away breakfast. Normal breakfast time is 7am. If you... More
