The room is very spacious. Very suitable for big family vacation with an affordable price. Great location, just opposite imago shopping mall and its just 2 mins to the city centre by cab. Convenient to get variety of eateries downstairs.

Really noisy, close to the highway and the worse, they make renovation during the night. They use a hammer !!! At night !!! I call the reception at midnight and they stop, but they begin again in the morning at 6:00 AM. I ask them to stop until 8:00, but they didn't respect it. They start again at 7:30 AM.... More

Great hospitality, ideal location right opposite to shopping a shopping mall and hospital. Only about a 20mins walk to sutera Harbour resort for the daily panoramic sunset view. Around the hotel itself there are more than ten diners and restaurants of different cuisine, 24/7 convienient stores are only few steps away!

Stayed here on my last day of the trip to East Malaysia. Internet was horrible. Couldn't connect at all. TV channels can be improved. On the good sight, the room was big and spacious. Bed was good. Staffs were friendly. Breakfast was just lousy. Pic attached.

We had a nice stay, was clean, very friendly and helpful staff. Was traveling alone as a mum with a small baby. The staff were lovely - all women which made me feel very safe.

The owner and her staff are a friendly bunch. Never fail to greet with a smile and always so readily to assist. I love the room. Spacious, clean and very comfortable. The location of the hotel is very conveniently located. Just 15 mins away from the airport. I am definitely going back when I visit Sabah again.
