Though not beautiful, this place is cheap, well situated, and has wifi of some worth. Not the friendliest or most English literate staff, but we had no complaints. A window is always worth an extra few quid in my opinion. It's central and a wise choice for a night. If you're staying longer see if Lavender Lodge has any space.... More

Budget type accommodation with lift to hotel floors. Clean room with window. Small towels. 15 minutes walk to the Jesselton Point Waterfront (ferry to the nearby islands). Nice staff and they do ask for a deposit when you present your paid online booking voucher.

For me all the necessities at a value price. The location is convenient. The hotel has a lift and the room has all that is needed AC (actually adjustable), Hot water, wifi and is clean. It was made up every day. There are even a couple of English language TV channels. The room was not the largest but a perfectly... More

It's nothing special, but it's only 20 bucks! The location is good, we always find it to be very clean, the wifi works great, and the shower is amazing. Yes it would be nice to have a window, but then pay more for a nicer hotel. We always go back here cause we're scared of what else you might find... More

Stayed 5 nights here. It's very basic, you have a comfy bed, tv, ac and hot shower with great pressure. The wifi is better than most budget places in the area. Location is good as you're pretty much right in the center. Staff were very friendly.

Hotel traveller is very well located for KK. It is quite cheap and surrounded by food options. The staff are friendly and do their best to help, but could do with knowing more local information. The room was small and dark. It had a powerful (but old) aircon system and a TV with about two channels. The bed was OK,... More

Stayed in the standard room. No windows, which is always a drag. Rooms have tv's, but I think they're older than me! Tiny tv's with aweful signal. Mosquitoes x 10 in room. The reason ror that is that cleaning personel leaves the door to the room open before new guests arrive. Nice! Staff were just okay. Not very welcoming. More... More

The Hotel Traveller is a great budget hotel that is situated right in the heart of the city. Everything is in easy walking distance from this hotel, and if you have to go further afar, it is right beside a taxi rank, and the southern buses depart only 100m away. The rooms are well appointed, there is a lift which... More
