My fiance and I stayed here for 3 nights prior to climbing Mt Kinabalu. We arrived relatively late and check in was friendly (as were all the staff) and relatively quick. First impressions the hotel looked well presented and adequate. We had the same impression upon arriving at our room. The shower was magnificent. All was looking very promising for our stay. HOWEVER. The first morning (after arriving late) we were woken by the maid cleaning the room door and seeming to shout into her coms device. I ask her to keep it down and thought no more of it. That night we entered the weekend and we're kept awake by LOUD noise from the nightclubs of kk times square (Maybe this is just at weekends, maybe it was just the rooms facing the square), Loud enough for us to feel the bass vibrations through our bed. Alas the next morning we were once again woken early by a maintenance staff member repairing a door with a hammer. This I raised with the reception staff. We left the next morning very early after 3 nights with very little sleep to climb Malaysias highest mountain. Not the most ideal situation and we felt that lack of sleep acutely on our adventures, I won't say it spoilt our climb, it would take much more than a frustrating hotel experience to spoil a mountain as beautiful as kinabalu.
