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

Ten of our family members visited KK June 18 to 21, 2014. The room assigned to me (and my wife) was spacious and clean. I have excellent view of both the water front and Mount Kinabalu. Staffs are friendly and the breakfast is reasonably good. Best of all is the location of the hotel. There are many eateries and several... More

Rooms are spacious and well furnished. Free wifi available Good view from the breakfast area. Buffet selection is good as well. However some training rooms are rather uncomfortable and snacks served were poor. Basic hotel. Perfect for those travelling on business.

Although I stayed only for a night but room was good, spacious, clean. Food was decent although I am vegetarian they were kind enough to help us with the food requirement. Also for the breakfast I had 7am flight so they packed breakfast and gave which was really nice. Location is also good next to sea area, shipping place. Worth... More
