We were only in the hotel overnight and set off early so we didn't have the breakfast (although they packed us one up). The rooms were spacious if a little dates but there was free wifi. The bathrooms were clean. The hotel is pretty central - about a ten minute walk to the sea front and bustling night markets in... More

The 3 of us (me, wife and kid) stayed here for 1 night. Might extend another if room service is good. Has free breakfast for 2. Funny my first hotel with a ceiling fan. As a muslim, the hotel is really muslim friendly has a praying mat and shows the time of prayers.

This hotel has changed several name since it's inception a long time ago. The hotel needs some refurbishment in rooms, restaurants and lounge to give a better outlook & ambience so as to command greater customer demands & market. The parking is easily available, hotel opposite Ming Garden Hotel separated by a river & near Indonesia Consulate & May bank.... More

This hotel needs a make over. The two rooms we looked at were in poor condition. Tiles falling off the bathtub. The enamel on the tub had a huge chip out of it. There was lots of mold in the bathroom and front of the sink was filthy. You can't imagine what it looked like under the bed in both... More

When we look for a hotel in kk city, parking will be our very first priority. this hotel provides free parking for the guests but parking is limited unless you opt for basement parking. i'm not sure though if basement parking provided with lift. if not, could be a little dangerous for you to walk upstairs. for breakfast, you can...

Nice hotel, very friendly staff, tasty food (even though several choices were not available), not too fancy but clean and near the center. The Indonesian consulate is just 1 minute from there (actually more like 10 paces). Wifi fast, cable TV with a good selection of channels

Sabah Oriental in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia was a very nice, western themed hotel where I stayed for three days in February 2015. Check in was flawless, the room had all the necessary amenities and was very comfortably climate controlled. I booked a room with buffet styled breakfast of which there were ample selections. I thought this booking was well worth... More

Its a nice hotel but it has a very dated interior and fittings. Some of the rooms have many things that are not working properly. Had to change rooms once because of a faulty shower. But its value for money and spacious rooms. Wifi is very slow.
