I love the cozy room. Love the view from the window that we got. The shower is a bit problem. The heater is not working at all. The breakfast is a bit frustrating. Was expecting the cereal with milk but there was none. And there was vegetable served but it looks not fresh at all. But the place is very... More

Stayed there @ 22 Aug for 1 night only. The location is in good location, basically you can get everything when you out from hotel. Food, Shopping, Cinema and Market. Everything within walking distance. But the room was a bit worn out, and I advise the management to change their bed sheet or mattress to make guest slept well. Better... More

I stayed in Best Western Kota Kinabalu because my usual hotel was fully booked out. Thinking this being one of the Best Western properties I had high expectations but I was terribly disappointed. We checked in around 10pm and the first room given to us was extremely small with a double-bed. After asking the receptionist for twin bed room she... More

We booked the Deluxe double room which is supposed to be better then a Standard or Superior room. This Deluxe room was small, old, worn and not well cleaned. The inadequate bathroom smelled funky and was too small for 2 persons to fit in. The pictures of the rooms on their (and other) website don't even come close to reality!... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and have been coming back to this hotel since 2005 for its location and also reasonable price. Not sure if all, but some rooms have been renovated as we got twice the new rooms which are very spacious since our last visit this year. Breakfast spread is good and wifi is working... More

Centrally Located, walking distance to most of the places within 5-20min, ATM, restaurant, shopping mall, Filipino market & etc. We spend one night at this hotel before we heading to Kinabalu National Park, the room given to us is dated. But the last night we were back to this hotel again after Kinabalu National Park, we were given a room... More

I booked this room for the location. It's close to Suri Sabah mall & Tong Hing, great places to find foreign foods to bring back to the Philippines. The staff was excellent, the building was nice, the shower was Great! The bed was comfy. The AC is always on unlike so many places in Asia that require your key card... More

The hotel is in a good location right opposite two banks with ATMs (the hotel has no money changing facilities). It is close to the waterfront and a shopping mall. There is a convenience store almost next door. The Post Office is close by. Reception is efficient. The rooms are average, rather faded but clean. The Hunter's Bar serves meals... More

Me and the wife checked in here after a hellish flight from London to find that the Standard Double consists of a room just big enough to fit a bed in a dodgy fridge that was only drowned out by the very old internal air con system and that the bathroom was COVERED in damp. We opted to pay an... More

Kinabalu Daya is centrally located in Kota Kinabalu. Within walking distance are tons of affordable and delicious restaurants. Try the restaurant at Ang's Hotel around the corner! They have a delicious seafood curry and sabah veggies. Rooms are clean but the hotel is kind of overpriced. The rooms on the upper floors are markedly better - updated and nice views.
