I have stayed in this hotel in three other occasions before this. Nothing about the decor, rooms, service and even the breakfast has changed about this hotel except for the wifi. It got worst, completely no wifi. At least previously, the lobby has wifi. And this is very important to me in my work. I did not change hotel when... More

Stayed here overnight as I had an early morning flight out to Brunei. Booking and payments done in advance via Agoda.com. Location is excellent, hotel is less than 10 minutes from KK Airport! Would have rated this 4 out of 5 but the airport transfer from the airport showed up 40 mins late, which quite put me off! It was... More

If you are in need of a quick, clean place to stay with friendly staff during transit, this is the place. Very good value for money, and the airport transfer is offered all the time (great for our 6am flight). We stayed twice, once at the start of our trip, once at the end. Both stays were perfect for what... More

It is close to the airport (7 mins from T2 air asia), check in and reception are easy and reliable. Most importantly it was clean (we have 2 kids) and had aircon, beds were ok. Price is cheap and well adjusted. Transport to airport at 5.45am was free and reliable. We did not test the brkfst... It is a little... More

Cleanliness is not an issue, staff is quite friendly too. Location is good if you wanna stay away from the KK town. We stayed here after climbing mount Kinabalu and it's perfect as there's a good massage place around the corner and a good restaurant serving chinese food! Try out Shalom for massage and King Hu for food if you're... More

I had to spend 3 nights there. The staffs are friendly, but the cleanliness needs lots of improvement! I found hairs underneath the pillow cover and bed sheet, ants everywhere, on the wall, on the table and floor. The exhaust fan in the bathroom covered in dust! Most terrible thing is, smoke smell stink up the whole room! I know... More

Arranged a pickup by e-mail--if you're booking through Agoda, you have to do this, since they won't have your flight details. The trip to the airport is only five to ten minutes. The rooms were spacious and clean, although you can tell they have a high guest turnover rate. I saw the guests in the room next door change three... More

Overall is good enough for me, however, the breakfast is terrible. As we have our breakfast at 8 in the morning, imaging we are consider as an early bird to have our breakfast, most of the meals to serve are finish up and no one would refill. I claim some butter for bread at restaurant counter, I swear there are... More

The rooms are fairly spacious and very clean and it's right next to the airport and Tanjung Aru beach. The only downsides are the dreadful breakfast and the fact te wifi only works in the lobby downstairs - despite the Agoda listing clearly stating "wifi in room".
