We stayed in the room 208 which is suppoused to be the best one in their hotel. Hotel is located nect to Le Meridien Hotel which makes you think this is a fine location. 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 booked rooms directly to the manager, Peter for 5 nights -- fast response, no fuss, no deposits, no problem. 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

We stayed one night at the A and J Budget hotel. The room was tiny, dirty, and the wi fi did not work.  When we went down in the morning to ask about the wi-fi, the manager offered no solution or assistance to solve the problem.  So we went over to the  A&J non-budget hotel and there the wi fi...

After seeing the recommendations in the Lonely Planet,i decided to look elsewhere. Im glad i stumbled across this budget hotel. Firstly the price for getting air con, own bathroom and TV with fox movies & ESPN for 55MYR is outstanding in KK as you're usually looking at 60-70 for a shared bathroom. Peter the owner is a fountain of knowledge... More

most happening place in kota kinabalu. the handicraft market building reminded me of old wet market, gambir street, kuching, sarawak. I moved to the 3rd Floor after the 2nd day which gave me full view of the ocean. remarkable. Lots of pigeons around too. easy access to the City Bus and Mini Bus Terminal. it cost RM0.50 from the Terminal... More

We arrived in KK fairly late and it was raining cats and dogs. Hence, we followed the obvious step: Lonely Planet, budged accommodation, step in lodge. But they had only a room with out windows (nothing for us) or a dorm room with bunk beds exclusively for us for 90 MYR (nothing for us!) or two dorm beds with window... More
