We enjoyed our stay at Zara's Boutique Hotel so much that we went back twice within this year. The service was superb and the staff was very attentive to our needs. It was just a 10-minute drive from the airport so it was very convenient for us. Getting around wasn't any issue as we could easily get a taxi. The... More

Revisited this hotel for a night on 20 Dec. They upgraded my room (same rate as room booked) since room booked not ready. Breakfast was simple and good. Helpful and friendly staff. Walking distance to "Imbago" a new big shopping mall. Quite near the state mosque (one of the state's tourist attraction). Will surely come back to stay since room... More

First thing was lots of complaints of noise from road and airplanes, I would say no... More

First of all, I'm not a picky/troublesome traveler and mostly i can go very well. HOWEVER...the pictures on travel websites do NOT accurately show this horrible, run down, dangerously located property. First, the hotel stay beside a dustry and noisy highway. It's dangerous and not convenience. The carpet at the corridor and room are smelly and not welly maintain. When... More

Dear Anthony See, First of all I would like to thank you for choosing to stay at Zara's Boutique hotel and for your feedback concerning your stay here.

Stay for two nights for business trip. Felt that for the price of one night at more than RM150 per night, I should get better deal but not really. The room look a worn out, almost felt like a budget hotel room. The breakfast comprised of fried rice, fried noodle, sausage, bread with margarine/butter, jam, and coffee & tea. Was... More

Located in the hub of activity you won't have to spend a lot for transportation. While the rooms are very clean and have storage space they are small. The beds are very low to the floor, views are not interesting but the included breakfast more than makes up for all. It is a hot breakfast that includes everything from scrambled... More

The family room is very large and spacious. However there is only one air cond and this results in quite warm temperature in room. Each guest room is only provided with one key so it is quite troublesome. There is a 7 eleven store open 24 hours just next door so it is very convenient. There will soon be another... More

I was a bit disappointed when i saw the room, it's different from the pictures. I think this hotel is lack of maintenance. I dont know if they have a cafe... More

Good hotel. Clean and nice. Loads of parking area available. Some eateries as well. But a distance from Central KK. Not near shopping malls. But you can drive there easily. The hotel has good number of woman to ensure your stay is pleasant. Good professional staff.

This is a very nice and pleasant boutique hotel just a little away from the main town of Kota Kinabalu. It is located at the corner of 2 blocks of shop lots called Harbor City so it is close to amenities like restaurants and a 7-11. Their front desk staff were very helpful and considerate.
