“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Stayed here a little apprehensively as the outside looks like an ancient brothel, but for MYR 55 per night the room was certainly great value for money and a much better alternative than many the private backpackers rooms available (mostly more expensive than Bilton too).

Old sheets, towels and carpets but not a deal breaker as it was clean. Aircon worked wonderfully. Bathroom was clean. Hot shower. Clean bed. Relatively quiet (we stayed on Chinese New Year weekend and still slept like the dead both nights).

The staff were very friendly and their service was excellent. They helped us out with plug adaptors, thermos of hot water and anything else we requested including good bus directions and recommendations for sightseeing. Also provided us with two big bottles (3 litres) of complimentary water per night.

Bilton is also close to the waterfront, Shangri-la bus stop, Gaya market, Centre Point and the pretty city hall park.

We headed five minutes down the street to the Sunday market in Gaya Street and were glad we didn't stay in this very noisy area on the weekend.

Overall, this was a great stay for us.

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Value for money.Spacious.Accomondating and friendly staff ( Mr.Awang ). Near to Night market, Jesselton point, Fish Market, filipino market. 10 minutes drive to the airport, to tanjung aru beach.
Very close to shopping malls. Alots of restaurant around with cheap prices. Only problem is the building looks like 10000 years old. although it doesnt give creepy feeling and sleep came easily.

Room Tip: Get the one lowest to the ground as there is no lift only stairs to 4th or 5th floor
