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

Unfortunatelly, the location is covered with rats and cockroaches (especially nights). Entrance to the hotel's reception which ic located on the 1st floor demands a lot... More

This place is right on the waterfront on the opposite corner to A&J (non-budget) Hotel. We were given room 208 which is at the front with a double bed and a shower room with hot water. There's CCTV in all the corridors so reception knows what's going on immediately. There's a large sitting area at reception and a fridge, tea... More

I was even able to request the rooms I wanted based on the previous reviews, which was at the 3rd floor seaview room. Great service too.. We DIYed our tours, and Peter gave us great info on how to best... More
