Waited in the room for bout 10 mins but no call came, so we went down to the reception. No staff was seen making the effort to... More

We also had requested a taxi at a certain time the night before, but still waited 30 minutes for one to arrive. Overall, rooms were pretty and clean and... More

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel, nothing much to complain about. The hotel is situated on a hill, so you have to walk a while to get food. Stayed in the Deluxe room, which was spacious and clean. Wifi connection was quite strong. Only thing is that the walls are quite thin, you can hear people closing the door, walking,... More

The hotel is situated on top of a low rise hill even though it is not very high; giving you a good view of the surroundings. the breakfast was superb. Room & toilet , was clean, brightly lighted, large enough for... More

Service and receptionists are helpful. Price is adequate.. Only a notation: if you can choose please don't take the rooms at the first floor because the pianobar of the... More

I booked this hotel mainly because it has a pool. It is a little bit out of town but a 15 min walk will get you to nice restaurants and shopping. All shopping destinations are only a 10 min taxi drive away and costs only $5.00 approx. The hotel is really great. The staff are lovely and very helpful. I... More

We had a very pleasant 7 night stay and would definitely come back. The rooms were comfortable and large with views of the greenery, and the staff friendly. The breakfast was adequate with a nice variety. When we complained that the used dishes were piling up and not taken away during our first 2 days, we noticed a great improvement... More

This is my second stay at Palace Hotel, the first time was last year March 2012. The lobby of the hotel is beautiful, the room is clean and as well as the bathroom. I like the breakfast because they have more choices (dim sum, local Sabah food, western food and many more). Excellent stay.
