The staffs are very helpful. Especially for traveller who is in difficulty. The good thing for this hotel is it's near to the airport and airport transfer is available, but there will be a surcharge if your flight is the early morning flight.

Sleep well through whole night.... More

I stayed in The Crown Borneo Hotel with my parents for 1 night. I was glad. The room size is actually quite small. We stayed on the 3rd floor, then we found out that there was no lift on the building, we have to carry our luggage up to 3rd floor. The greatest thing about this hotel is the location,... More

The free shuttle was waiting for us upon arrival and took us to the hotel which is not more than 10 minutes away. The staff was very friendly. We only needed the room until 10 pm and they were good enough to let us check in at 11 am although officially check-in time is 2 pm. The room was tiny... More

The location is close to the airport. Rooms are small but cosy. My room had a flat screen tv with about 11 channels. In-room coffee, tea and bottled water is provided. It also had a rainshower equipped in the bathroom. The lobby restaurant has nice pastries with scones, rum balls and eclairs. Wifi is available for guests in room and... More

Stayed here for one night between flights in Kota Kinabalu. Free pick up and set down from the airport, and super close to the airport too (5 mins drive), make it an ideal hotel for short trips. Rooms are clean and small but perfectly adequate for stopovers. Breakfast was even thrown in even though our flight was at 6 am.... More

Booked on Internet based on trip advisor comments and was not disappointed. The place is clean and tidy, the room is small but has all it needs, tv, air conditioner, it's own bathroom and nice bed. The let down was noisy toilet and distance from KK's attractions (such as they are). In summary it's a good place to stay.
