For me, this hotel is good. Why? First of all, the location. It is actually located out of the city centre but very close to Imago shopping mall and KK Times Square. Second, the night life within the hotel's area. You can dine in Kak Nong or in Tham Nak Thai. 24 hours retails store is available within the same... More

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 downside is it's quite far from town, on a very busy road, there are restaurants and shops next to it on a little strip... More

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.

We visited last September to attend an expo and were pleasantly surprised and grateful for the extra mile the staff and especially the owners went to ensure our group were taken cared of. Excellent location , clean and safe- kudos to the owners for the warm hospitality.

Zara Boutique Hotel (ZBH) offers real value for money for families, visitors and well as businessmen. This is a hotel I strongly recommend to all my friends who wants to travel on a budget and save money for sightseeing, sample native cuisine, or buy native handicraft or Sabah's famous seafood to bring home. What's unique about ZBH? It's fully run... More
