I stayed here for a few nights while I was in transit. Its location is spot on and very easy to get to via taxi from the airport (30 RM) I stayed in a dorm room but was in the room on my own. It was clean, comfortable and had air con. The shared bathrooms are very clean too, no... More

it's an easy 25 minute walk from the ferry terminal and just 10 minutes walk from the Wawasan Bus terminal. While they couldn't find our (agoda) booking when we checked in there was no problem in letting us into the room while they checked. We had a private double bed in room 202 right at the front overlooking the street... More

Victoria Hotel is more like a hostel. Yes, it is as advertised: clean rooms, good location and friendly hotel staff. But accommodations are starkly basic and don't look as nice as the photos. The floors of my room and floor were covered with plastic tape with fake wood design. Also no lift. Most of the rooms are up a few... More

I will agree that the photos presented on their website is a 'lil different in actual. However, I think the 'hospitality' covers anything that we might feel missing in this 2-star hotel (as rated by Kota Kinabalu Tourism Board). We got the twin-sharing room at the 3rd floor. The shower room is clean enough but not as I have expected... More

Booked this hotel online, the picture and the price was really attractive. However, as you entered the room, it was so much different from the picture. Well, I understand that for advertising purpose, you can have all sort of way to promote your hotel but the basic should be there. I somehow feel a little bit cheated. There is no... More

Stayed here or 3 nights in April. Good location, walking distance from waterfront, restaurants, airport bus stop, and harbour. Staff was very friendly and VERY helpful, able to answer any questions we had about KK and things to do in the area. Room was clean, and some one came in every day to clean. The first room we were shown... More

Probably the best value hotel stayed in for duration of a 5 week trip. Stayed at Victoria for a week and I've got nothing bad to say about the place. Kept bags safe in a back room before room was available, rooms were clean and tidy with working air con and ensuite and in a great location with everything in... More

The Staff at the hotel are very helpful and the location is good (near lots of restaurants and not too much of a walk from the seafront). The rooms are clean and all the basics are included and the price was very reasonable. I would stay here again.

Spent 3 nights here. Good location, room was nice. However... On our last morning we used our phone for an alarm. Left it in the bed and went down for breakfast. When back upstairs we were in a bit of a rush to get ready for our taxi so must have forgotten to pack the phone. We realised the phone... More
