We first stayed at the KK Hyatt Regency for one night before our ascension of Mount Kinabalu and thereafter, once our trekking experience, via ferratta and night in a hut, completed. The first night was actually a little too short for my liking and being able to enjoy any of the hotel amenities, apart maybe from the bed (delayed arrival... More

People are helpful and nice service. The executive lounge is very beautiful , the food is nice with good sea view. I definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and waiting to visit it again. The location is also convenient to visit Gaya street and the shopping mall.

Stayed here for 2 nights, was well priced, but glad we did not extend. Kota Kinabalu is a city that is still under developed. The location is great, and the views are great from up above, but the pollution and sewage smell is well apparent when you walk outside. But the hotel is nice, spacious rooms and I hear it's...

the hotel is located near shops and restaurants and within walking distance of the Sunday market and the ferry pier. The customer service is excellent and the facilities good. The pool area sadly catches the smell of the nearby fish market and trash laden sea and the non sea view rooms don't have a particularly nice outlook, but, I'd stay... More

We booked Hyatt for its franchise. First impression of the hotel was that it was NOT five-star as advertised, a bit rundown, with not so pretty neighborhood. Hotel room appeared newly renovated though, as well as the breakfast buffet restaurant. Breakfast had good selections with a view of the harbour. Hotels.com advertised 40-45MYR for breakfast but the hotel was actually... More
