If you looking for simple yet delicious delicacies, STREATS would be better place for you. Though the pricing a bit pricy, but its quality in good conditions. Worth for your money too. Recommended this stay for hangouts or business purpose too.

Hotel located right in the city centre. We stayed 2 nights at 1st floor, with ocean view blocked by palm tree and smelly carpet along the walkway/corridor. Though the hotel was re-branded under Ibis Style, somehow the toiletries label remains "Hotel Sandakan Waterfront". No slippers provided, toilet smells bad, and looks rather old. Breakfast is simple, liked the fried rice.... More

Ibis Styles Sandakan rooms are smallish, lower floor rooms can be noisy and there is no parking. However, the staff are helpful and the waterfront location is great. Breakfast is simple and the rate competitive. All in all, basic, clean and a decent hotel to stay a night or two.
