Rooms were clean and well-maintained. AC is cool. Good location. You get free breakfast in the cafe next door. Request for room 207 (twin) as shower drains faster there. Make sure you contact reception if you plan late check-in as they're not available 24/7. Hotel staff are kind. You can request to borrow an adapter if you don't have one.

My hotel room was clean and tidy when I arrived, as was the rest of the hotel. My room didn't have a window which wasn't idea and was very small but for a short trip was not a problem. The bathroom was clean but the shower was not very hot or powerful, the door to the shower did not shut... More

We stayed here for two nights. The hotel is centrally located in KK. The room was OK but small. The bathroom was ok but not great. The A/C worked but was barely adequate. The included breakfast was good if you have the Asian option. This is a fair hotel for the price. Unfortunately it is being portrayed online and in... More

We spent two months in Sabah and used KK Suites as a base. It is a basic hotel, good wifi and clean but very small rooms. We tried several and eventually decided that room 206 is the best, a little more spacious, a better view from the window and a bigger bathroom. I expect rooms 106 and 306 are the... More

For the rate paid for a single room approximately USD.25 this was great value for money. A simple small hotel with a reception and 3 floors of rooms and the included breakfast served in the local cafe next door. My room was overlooking Gaya Street where the Sunday market is located. The hotel is in the city centre and it... More

We stayed there only a short night (luckily) as a stop over before going climbing the Mount Kinabalu. I was really surprised as this hotel was recommended by Lonely Planet and had quite good comments on Trip Advisor. When we arrived at the reception, we were wondering if this was a hotel. The lift was broken so we had to... More
