The bed was okay. The room has 2 bottles of drinking water (500ml), slippers, etc (these are all okay and good). WiFi? I am not sure. Tv? Okay. What I don't like was the bathroom. Water heater not working. And the water in the shower draining extremely slow (I guess maybe only this particular room).

Booked through internet. Arrived in hotel at 5pm and was shocked to be told that the room I booked was not available. Given a smaller room with a ridiculously small window which was 2 meter above ground. The staffs were not friendly. Late check out was rejected and they wanted extra payment for that. No breakfast. As i was given... More

We stayed in Golden Hill for one night, just as a stop over and it was great choice. It's located near the airport ... but if someone is thinking to make a walk from the airport to the hotel - better not ;) It's 10 min by taxi (cost 25RM), but You can save this cost, because hotel provides free...

Located at the end of the airport, is a good and clean hotel. Rooms are clean, bathrooms big enough, slow wifi, some restaurants around. They offer a shuttle from/to airport but there was no driver when we arrived, so we got a taxi (MYR 25) Not near from KK center, but there are small vans that have a very near... More

This hotel is only about 5 minutes away from the Kota Kinabalu airport. I stay here for a night as I had to catch a connecting flight the next morning. They do provide shuttle service for their customers. The odd part of this service is that, the hotel left a message on mobile and asked me to call the hotel... More

We'd already stayed in KK once and I wouldn't recommend this hotel for anything more than a night because it's quite far out, but this time we landed at 15:00 and were taking off again at 06:00 so it was great. Free transfer each way to the airport (even at 04:00) in a lovely new vehicle, there's a supermarket within... More
