Good location, within walking distance to the markets, waterfront, eateries, malls. Room was pretty spacious for hotel of its class. Neat and clean too. Staffs were very accomodative. For the price and service, it's worth!!!

I stayed in this hotel a few years back when it was under a different name i.e. Imperial International Hotel. I stayed again recently for business function. Most things maintained in place: good services, rooms are clean, facilities are well maintained and of course its ideal location bring central in KK and close to everywhere. The red revolving couch is... More

Red distinctive eye-catching couch caught my attention immediately. open up the curtain, you will see the sea filled with boats, sun set on this beautiful coast. Internet Wifi connection is not too bad. High ceiling in my room. I missed the breakfast due to a morning flight out but the receptionist offered to-go. Power point is good and working. No... More

Stayed here for one night only during business trip in Kota Kinabalu. Checkin handled swiftly by the staff. Welcome drink coupon peovided but not breakfast. Floor plan arrangement a bit confusing. Bed a little bit hard. Equipped with medium sized lcd TV. No view in room, facing wall of next door building.

Klagan Hotel was aimply amazing. Shower was strong and warm water was hot enough. Newspaper was provided daily and staff was ultra nice. Beds and sleep was good here, and its central to everything like night life, shopping and food. Parking is also complimentary and a plenty. The downside of Klagan Hotel is the limited breakfast selection, and getting signaturs/stamp... More

The hotel is located at a very central place for most things. Jesselton point for a ferry ride to islands is a ten mins walk/short taxi ride away. You can simply walk to the waterfront across the road to see a beautiful sunset. For everything from food to gadgets, the center point mall is across the road. So in short... More

It always comes down to price, facilities and location and to be fair, for the price paid the Klagen scored well on all points. It's right in the middle of the 'action' in Kota Kinabalu, close to the night markets, across from the Esplanade and with a major shopping centre across the rear access street. The lobby is small (and... More

Hotel was convenient location but I would have preferred others, bathroom good but bedroom very dark and dated. Hotel was very big and easy to find but the thought of going back there. I would rather pay a bit more, on the way back stayed at the Hyatt massive difference!

Comfortable rooms in a good location, but the wifi was worse than useless. I had to go to the local Le Meridien hotel lobby to check my emails and when you've paid for a hotel with wifi it is rather annoying to have such inconvenience. I stayed for 4 days/nights and the wifi was consistently bad. Over 90% of the... More
