“Good service and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

We shared the petite room. Be warned it has no window and with a bed and a mattress, there was no room for anything else. It was the only room that was available so we knew what we were getting. It was not a problem for us as one of us wanted to sleep while the other was out all day diving. We stayed for five nights.

It was very quiet, almost no road noise at all.

The service is quick and friendly.

Excellent location near the pier with some handy shops right next door.

We would stay there again.

We used this small hotel as a base for our trip to Borneo. It was very convenient as we could walk to restaurants, shopping malls and the sea front, yet the rooms were quiet. Next door there are supermarkets selling all kinds of fruit, drinks yoghurt etc.The rooms were clean and the lounge area very useful. Ling Ling indeed is so helpful and knows everything from the best fish restaurant to where to change money. When we traveled to other areas we were able to leave some cases at the Hotel Eden and on return we able to shower and were never rushed out of our rooms. It really helped us enjoy KK which is a great city anyway.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with a window.

My wife and I stayed at Eden 54 for 8 nights last week, we were very impressed with the staff and the cleanliness of the entire property. Our room was a studio king which was specious enough with a comfortable bathroom and great daily service, including free water every day.
The reception team and namely Ling Ling where more than accommodating with any requests and where very helpful in organising tours, taxis etc....
We certainly will be staying at Eden 54 again on our next trip to KK.
And did I mention the location, it is perfect for all your KK needs great food all around the Boat terminal for trips to the Islands is close by shops underneath the hotel and a great little Cafe inside Tong Hing supermarket that makes decent coffee if you need one.
Cheers to the Hotel Eden Team will be back.

This small hotel is in a very good location. You can walk everywhere in town from here.
Right next to it, there is a very nice small grocery store where you can have a good cup of coffee (met the owner and she told me that the coffee is imported from Australia), good sweet bread and good sandwiches. The hotel has no restaurant, so this is very convenient!
The two owners of Eden 54 are absolutely adorable and go out of their way to give you all the information you need and help you in anything you may require! They both are super nice!Their english is perfect!
Ask for a room facing the small courtyard, it is quieter.
Rooms are small but clean.
The only inconvenience to this hotel is that, to get to the front desk and all the rooms, you need to go up several steps, but there is personnel to help you carry all your lugagge.
Very secure property. You won´t be disappointed if you stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the small courtyard, it is quieter.

I stayed here as a part of 3 for two nights in April as part of our stay in KK. The owners were friendly and welcoming and really helpful when we were planning our trip. They went out of their way to organise transport and give us tips. Rooms were clean, well presented, location excellent especially being round the corner to Jesselton Quay for visiting the islands. Overall a pleasure to stay here. Would highly recommend

Stayed here on 10th April and 13th-14th April 2014 before and after our Kinabalu climb. It's in a great location, in the town area about 10-15 minutes taxi ride from the airport, and within 5 minutes from the mall. There are other local eateries within distance and it's also conveniently located next to a supermarket.

The receptionist was a kind and friendly lady who spoke fluent English, and the staff are very accommodating to our needs and requests. They kindly agreed to store some of our luggage while we went for our climb. The rooms are air conditioned and well maintained, and we were able to have a good night's sleep. A strong WiFi signal is available as well.

Couldn't have asked more for the price we paid. Definitely recommended and will be back when I return to KK.

I enjoyed my stay in Eden54, I love the convenience this place provide and the staff there is very helpful. The room was clean and it wasn't as noisy as reviewed earlier, we had a good night's sleep. They also gave good recommendations for food. We would like to point out that the security is good, remember we forgot to lock our room door and left the door ajar for several hours, we found that our valuables were still in the room. However, we weren't happy with the laundry collection as our laundry were given to someone else next to our room, lucky that the staff took the responsibility to contact the respective person and help settle the problem. Overall, we like the place and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Pick a windowed room
