I've been travelling to Sandakan monthly for Business meeting for the past 2years, been hoping into multiple hotel in the region ranging from budget to 4-star.
I found out about this hotel and decided to try it on as i've already seen every hotel available in sandakan.
Upon arrival it doesn't really make a good impression, but it all changes when i stepped into the reception lobby,
Staff - very friendly, welcoming me with warm smile
Check in - was very fast although i did booked online, some other hotels still take times even if you've booked it.
ROOM - I MUST STRESS, this is 1 the thing that blast my mind out as when i walked into the room it was SPACIOUS, CLEAN & PLEASANT. It's almost like i've check into a 5-star hotel room.
INTERNET - if you're someone who need high speed internet for work this is the only HOTEL in whole of sandakan you'll be staying. SpeedTested with download speed of 1Mbs, compared to the 4-star hotel i've stayed which is only around 200kbs. Needless to say i need this speed at least.
LJ Grill - dine in on 1 of my night, food variety is not much but quality of food i must say 1 of the best steak i've had in sandakan better than English Tea House. Was greeted by their F&B manager, a really friendly guy.
Overall, i'll be in this hotel for as long as i need to be in sandakan. No more other hotel.
