When stepping outside the hotel, you will encounter some smelly & shady surroundings. The view was probably the worst I've ever seen outside a hotel window. Electricity went off 1-2 times per day for several minutes. However, the staff was very polite and helpful with that. Thumbs up for the extremely considerate and thoughtful attitude of the girls at the... More

The Merdeka field is a bus stop which connecting you to other city of Sabah by van. 3. Gaya street (Sunday market) just opposite the Merdeka field (Dreamtel).... More

We stayed here for 10 days. The place was OK, probably the best for the money in Kota Kinabalu. Very centrally located, easy walk all round the town. Close to good eatery (Mustafa Maju) and to shopping centre. Hotel is clean, though showing it's age. Staff very friendly, obliging and helpful. No hot water in the showers. Only 7 TV... More

A run down hotel, needs some improvement but staff were nice enough to me. This is not in the center so be prepared for a hike/walk across two main roads to eventually get to the centre and water side. small KFC on the corner of road, a few Indian/Malay eateries open in the around the back street/lanes nearby.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Good location. Rooms fine with good beds. TV unwatchable. WIFI is only just ok. Biggest issue was no hot water in the mornings. Air con great, but next doors was very noisy.

The hotel room was not nice, bearable though. The staff are so-so. Not too helpful, not at all bad. The location was okay. It is a budget hotel so the amenities and hotel accommodation are likewise "budget". The elevator was horrible, it closes too fast and it was too small. I won't say I would recommend this hotel.

Hopefully it will be better when the refurb is finished, we stayed 4 nights in an older room. Most of the time the wifi didn't work - NB, it wasn't just slow, it didn't work at all. TV didn't really work - there is one English channel but so much interference you can't watch it. That's actually a good thing... More

This is a good buget option for KK. I booked the deluxe room through Agoda and got a good rate. Plenty of room and a comfortable bed. Good WiFi and a refrigerator. Quiet location up against the hill and good location for getting a minivan to anywhere in Sabah. The hotel is a little dated but well maintained. Typical Malaysian... More

There are better choices for budget hotels...rooms are pretty basic and old (which you'd expect given the price).... But, we didn't have any running water in our room (including flushing the toilet!). Sheets were clean, air con worked. Bathroom wasn't brilliantly clean. I'd try the other options first if I went back. Location was ok.
