Put up at this hotel for an overnight stay during a delayed flight. Hotel is located about 10 mins drive from the airport. Hotel common areas are fairly dated, didn't check out any of the amenities - but the hotel has a swimming pool and a gym. Rooms are have all the necessities but are old. There is a shower... More

Located behind equally tall buildings housing banks, this hotel is not easily visible. Rooms are adequate for most travellers but the location is not ideal for those not coming in their own vehicles. There is no shop and food court nearby. To reach the nearest shop requires about 10 to 20 minutes walk along busy roads. Facilities are okay. Friendly... More

The hotel is good value for money. The hotel is on the older side but less expensive than other hotels we priced. Ageing more noticeable around the bath/shower, but clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Staff tourist advice helpful too. The buffet breakfast had a good selection, with inside seating only. The canal was only viewable if you stepped outside... More

We were put here by our travel company and were disgusted. The place is old and dirty. The breakfast buffet overlooks a rubbish strewn canal with raw sewerage leaking into it. The actual hotel is built virtually on a median strip in the middle of 3 inter connecting freeways. Walking anywhere was I possible due to traffic. We checked out... More

The hotel was clean and comfortable, we stayed for 3 nights and were able to check in straight away which was great as our flight arrived at 6 in the morning. The hotel could do with a makeover but for the price it is good value for money. The buffet breakfast is excellent but we also had the buffet evening... More

We stayed at the Sabah Oriental for 2 nights, after having booked a good deal on agoda. On arrival whilst our room was ready they hadn't prepared it for 3 guests (we'd paid for an extra bed). Our room was large and had all the necessary amenities although the bathroom whilst clean was very well used! The pool area is... More

Stayed 2 nights as part of a set tour. The rooms are simple and clean however I found that it was a little dark. This may have been due to the side of the hotel we were on. Staff seemed friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet had a variety of options, catering for varied tastes. We were able to order... More

It's location is slightly awkward being located within the city but still not quite there. It has a free shuttle service into the heart of the city as walking will take a good 20 or so minutes at a healthy pace. Best to have your own transport as parking for guests is free. It has all the facilities offered by... More
