This place is very much in the budget bracket. We are not too fazed by this and our family room was what we expected for 80 ringgit a night. The air con worked and a TV in the room. All good so far. However, on our 3rd and final night here the bedbugs hit us with a vengeance. The kids... More

We had a terrible experience. The room was not clean up. The rubbish are everywhere. No towels provided till we asked for it. Water heater not functioning. It could be too hot and it's looking very old type. I would not recommend this hotel to a family vacation.

Since we are already tired from the flight, we haggled and gave us the room for 75rm instead and they promised to give us the... More

I found this BUDGET hotel MUCH better than some of the budget hotels I have stayed in. The place looks a bit Budget from the outside and the stairs up to both the reception and the rooms. The Noise from the surrounding streets is off putting however...... Once you enter your room the noise is gone the rooms are a... More

I stayed here for three nights in a double room. Everything in my room was old and dirty. There were two leaking pipes in my en suite bathroom which dripped relentlessly. There was also a hole to the ceiling in my bathroom. The walls were cracked and the window looked like it had never even heard of cleanliness. The room... More

I went to Kota Kinabalu from 19th to 22nd September 2013. The weather was clear and we got to view the low peak of Mount Kinabalu all the time. On the 2nd day there, we moved from Kundasang Inn to A&J budget hotel. Because there's 5 of us, we decided to take a family room. Actually the room can fit... More

air-con took long time to cool the room, lack of maintenance. lizards, cockroaches can be seen every evening. only clean your room upon request, had to go to the counter to ask for towel everyday. there are many hotels in the surrounding area at slightly higher rate but much cleaner & hygienic. never stay in this hotel again.

The wet market is 10 mins walk north.To get to gaya street there is a walking overhead bridge next to... More
