Its a 4 stars hotel. Stay there for a night with friend.. Room is well equipped with basic facilities but interior design was poor. My room was quite far from the lift area need to walk a bit far. Otherwise, hotel staff were nice and friendly. Easy to park my car as well. Overall,its just a nice place to stay.

Been patronising this hotel for a couple of my business trips and i would say there is nothing much i need to complain about. The room is spacious and it is clean. To me the location is just a little bit off, coz the shopping centre Imago is just opposite with a very busy road separating them apart. This is... More

I took a superior delux room which provides 1 king size bed. The room is very clean and comfortable. The size is quite large for a family stay as well. This hotel is nearby to Kota Kinabalu town as well. The room rate is quite reasonable for a 4 stars hotel. In general, i love to stay at this hotel... More

The room is clean. Tea/coffee making facilities available. Toiletries provided.staff are very nice. Very near to eateries and imago. The only setback is the horrendous wifi which is non existent and the internet cable which is also not working. If not for this it would be my hotel of choice for all my trips

Ming Garden Hotel & Residences is located 10 min from the airport with taxi (7.50 $) and just next to the bus terminal Wawasan. It's a big business type hotel with friendly staff but not much ambiance. The hotel is a bit isolated, with not even a convenience store close and a 20 min walk to the very city centre.... More
