These days no more free airport transfers unless the hotel already included transportation to-and-from the airport. Taxis are pretty cheap as the distance is not too far... Just be sure to agree on the fare before you jump in. Best is to get the taxis from the airport taxi counter... Hope you have a great trip there!

Dear Dianefmelbourne, Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, our restaurant is just at the ground floor. Other option, outside restaurant is just within walking distance from our hotel. Thanks, Jessica Hotel Shangri-La, Kota Kinabalu

I doubt there is a kids club here in Hotel Shangrila.Perhaps there is some confusion.The other 5 star Hotel chain.the Shangrila GROUP certainly has one.but that is a totally different Hotel chain and has nothing to do with Hotel Shangrila.

"There is no safe in the rooms."
"we had the room facing the town centre. "
"A room deposit of 100R is required at check in. "
"Although we stayed in rooms that faced the main road & city centre there was complete silence all around"
"If the wi-fi does not work on your floor, try the lobby"
