“Central conveniences at your doorstep”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

I took a little risk with Hotel Sixty3, seeing that it only has 3 reviews (as of Jan 2012). I wasn't disappointed as it was conveniently located with sufficient amenities nearby.

Room: Opt for lower floors if you can. I was on top level (5th floor) but was disturbed in the morning by reno works on level 6. Once inside, it was spacious, with room to hold a queen bed, 2 single seaters, a coffee table and the whole works. Not much view as it is not located next to the sea but I was happy nonetheless. Wifi is available and consistent.

One of the hotel's selling point is their high-tech TV. You can surf the Net, play games, watch TV, listen to the radio, watch movies on demand, set your alarm clock, play ambient music - all on the TV. Novelty I must say.

Food: Opposite the hotel is Fook Yuen and Old Town Coffee - local eateries that are worth a try. Fook Yuen has the softest white bread ever! A cup of coffee and 2 toast is only RM3.10. Not too bad really. The hotel is situated on Gaya Street, where it's lined with food and more food.

Location: It's near to Suria Sabah - the newest mall in town. Only 1/3 of the shops are open unless you want to catch a movie on the 8th floor. Wisma Merdeka, KK Plaza are also within walking distance. I did manicure for RM29 - a good bargain I thought. :) On Jalan Pantai is a massage place call 1-Healthy. I went for the one hour massage for RM47. Not too bad if you are not into pain.

Stone's throw away from the jetty to the nearby islands.

I'll come back again if I were to go for another solo trip to KK!

Room Tip: Opt for lower floors to avoid reno works.

This hotel was really good. The location is really good, directly opposite Sabah Tourism and the design in the hotel was really nice too. The king bed was super comfortable. The shower was amazingly good with fantastic water pressure. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the price was really good too. I stayed 2 separate nights, one in a suprerior room which was huge and one in a standard room which was also a good size.

found this hotel walking through KK. it was at a promotional price as it was newly opened. LOVED the shower and the range of TV programs compared to other hotels. Room was also very big. Would highly recommend this. everything is very clean because hotel is new!

Room Tip: try not to choose first floor. my room (same family type) on the first was much worse than the condi...

This hotel was an amazing surprise. We arrived the day that the hotel opened and were treated to a discounted rate. The rooms are great with free internet, incredibly comfortable beds and AMAZING shower.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be superb

The hotel sixty3 is a good value for money and I recommend it to people who look for a convenient location within a budget. Found the hotel through agoda and was not at all disappointed. Direct booking from the hotel will get a better price. It has been just open for a few weeks. Spent 3 nights at this hotel and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The room deserves a prize for its brand new lcd tv, rain-like showers and newly soft beds. The spacious room has a nice view if you stay on the right side where is in front of the white house =Sabah Tourism Board on Jalan Gaya. Feeling everything is just close to us with no hassle to go anywhere. The weak wifi is the only shortcoming. Yet don't hesitate to ask hotel providing wireless keyboard to surfing internet via your own room large screen lcd-tv.

Room Tip: Rooms close to counter suppose get stronger wifi, corner rooms (on Jalan Gaya) with a view of Sabah...
