For local Malaysian, the price for staying at D'Borneo Hotel is quite high. I thought with a high price i paid i will get a big room but when i enter my room the size is actually small, much smaller than rooms in Deleeton Hotel and much smaller than rooms in Winner Hotel.

Stayed 3 nights. Selected this hotel because it was cheap and centrally located for walking to local restaurants, Jesselton Jetty and markets. Clean , comfortable room with quality tea and coffee provided. A little street noise at night. Very friendly, helpful staff.

Stayed here for three nights on recommendation of a friend. After staying in hostels and sharing bathrooms for quite a few nights prior, this was luxury! Our double room and bathroom were spacious, clean and well appointed. Night time was very quiet despite being in the heart of the city, and I slept like a baby. It was a great... More

On the recommendation of our local friend, we stayed at D'Borneo for three nights. As with most hotels in KK, the prices are high and the quality low. But my partner and I were pleasantly surprised with our short term accommodation. It was clean, comfortable and well presented. The most significant factor was the staff though, who made us feel...

We arrived from Brunei into KK before embarking on a 3 week drive holiday / excursion through northern Borneo . The hotel was central, lots of shopping and restaurants close by. The room was comfortable, a little tried. But clean. The staff were fantastic. It's a good hotel to consolidate your onward travel plans, it's not expensive . They don't... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in October 2013, we booked through Agoda, the website shows a restaurant and cafe there is not one, for breakfast you have to venture out and the only places close to hotel are local food. The rooms were not clean, the shower and sink only had cold water. There... More

Spent a night in this basic hotel base on high review score in Booking.com and affordable prices. Upon entering the lobby, you will be welcomed by a strong smell of lemongrass scent. I'm ok with the smell, but found it to be too strong to my liking. I was given a room on the first floor. There's no lift and... More
