Overall hotel needs some reburshing, toilets are mouldy. When u walked into the bedroom, it stinks from mold. Walk into the 4th floor buffet breakfast, it does not smell like breakfast, but mold from the air conditioning. I brought some air freshener that solved some of the smell in the room. Do bring ear plugs too if you are a light sleeper like me. Traffic noise is loud and people walking along corridor can also be heard very clearly. Worst thing is, the bed frames have mold on them. The pillow cases smell like that have not been changed for a long time. You cannot be lying side ways to sleep as the smelly cases can just keep u awake. Location is convenient and that's the only plus. The lobby looks pleasant and nice, but other areas are just worn down. It is a place for a simple stay if you don't mind the mold and smell.

No doubt, it is a strategic location: Next to Suria Sabah Mall, Gaya Street was some walks away, and also Jesselton Point. Many restaurants nearby. The room has the "old fashion room" odor. Nevertheless, the bed was comfortable and the shower heater works fine. Downside, is the parking. Parking are available but it is not under the hotel but it is under DBKK (Kota Kinabalu City Hall - Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu. Which means if you park at the allocated parking (with the colored numbers on it), you have to present the DBKK parking coupons on your car dashboard. *Parking Info Outside of the Hotel (With colored numbers) Monday to Friday - 8am to 5pm Saturday - 8am - 1pm Sunday & Public Holidays - Free *must present coupon parking on dashboard or else you'll be fine Green : RM0.55/hour Yellow: RM0.55/30mins parking are very limited. they provide a basement parking too but it is pricey RM15/night. All types of heavy odor fruits are prohibited.

I stayed for 4 nights in Sep19 and the experience was good. Positives: (1) good location, walking distance from the seaside, eating/drinking places and shopping, (2) friendly staff who were keen to serve, (3) the whole hotel is smoke-free, (4) wifi works well throughout the whole hotel, (5) hot water for bath was quick and hot, (6) the lifts came quickly, (7) bed and bathroom were clean Negatives: (1) while the beds and room was clean, there were much dust in the cupboard where the power switchboard was, (2) the TV was old and the picture quality is poor, (3) the room looks tired and could do with a refresh, (4) the food at the cafeteria is edible but can be vastly improved - the coffee was fairly tasteless. Overall: recommended for stay as the price and location makes it attractive.
