The hotel is conveniently located in Kota Kinabalu. The attractions are nearby and within walking distance. There is a shopping mall across the street. They even provide massage chairs in the lobby. However, the breakfast selection was poor. No egg station. Not to be repeated as I'd rather have breakfast outside of hotel.

It's very hard to find a parking space around the hotel. The carpark close at 12midnight . The food is good. The staff are good and welcoming. The room, is just okay. Too cold but they dont have a window. A window that can be opened. So far my stay is just okay.

We are in Kota Kinabalu for Eid holiday: visiting my parents. I purposely look for a room that fits 4 adult and I got this hotel. Originally this building was an office building. Later they turn it into a hotel. So you can't expect it to look typically like a hotel. What make me inconvenience: deposit paid by cash. No... More

This hotel is lovely but nothing super special. Rooms were very clean and beds comfy. Breakfast was average enough. Staff were great, really helpful and organised tours for us. Really didn't like the music that played along the corridors early in the morning though!

Hotel is quite basic, IMHO. It will do for a few night stay but purely for sleep. There is nothing much in the hotel per se. The only thing going for it was it's centrally located building. Behind the hotel is where you get some of the best sea water frozen fish. Weekend market is about 5 minutes walk to... More

I stayed here 4 years ago. It was a very good 3 star, budget type hotel back then. Sadly, its deteriorated badly over time with no maintenance or refurbishment being done. We stayed in room 312 which is a larger room with 2 double beds. The carpets on level 3 are years past their use by date. Seriously .... is... More

This was a nice, basic hotel that had most of what I'm looking for in a budget place. Clean room, friendly staff, decent restaurant, hot water, but we could not turn the temperature in the room below 24 degrees. That combined with the fact that the beds had thick comforters made for a long, hot night.

I was there for 3 nights. The location was very strategic, in front of the Suria Sabah(Shoppingmall). Walking distance to the Jesselton Point (Jetty place). The foods was good too and my favorite place is their coffee shop at the lobby. We had fun with karaoke.

Stayed for 2 nights. Hotel is old but clean. They basically need to change the carpet, the rest is okay. My experience was generally okay but the last part made me decide never to stay there again. When i checked out, I had my laptop bag, tote bag, and bulging luggage. As i neared the door to exit, i noticed... More
