Me & my sisters (3of us) stayed in a standard room with city view. This hotel was recommended by a friend who said it was relatively new. So during our time of stay everything was in great condition. I loved the warm hues of the room, the wooden but modern deco and the flat screen tv (limited channels though) right to the sliding wooden bathroom door.
If you want a view, you have to request for seaview (which is more expensive). We opted for the cheaper city view and through out our stay- kept the curtains drawn tight shut. Not just because the view from our room is facing a worn out shabby building but we caught sight of men walking around up the roof with clear view into our room.
Personal preference for security, we hang the do not disturb sign - so the cleaners did not come in. But overall experience with the staff had been positive and not particularly eventful.
The location of the hotel is perhaps the highest selling point. One Borneo which lived up to the hype of KK's shopping haven is quite a distance from the city(and the hotel) but the neighboring shopping buildings have good stores and some which are cheaper than the branded sotres of OneBorneo. It's easy to shop and dine around the hotel area (atleast those within walking distance).
(My sisters and I planned to stay with the hotel if a future trip comes up but that was in 2008 but reading recent review suggest state of the room has plummeted.. so now we have our reservations)
