Silam Dynasty Hotel
Ranked #4 of 9 Lahad Datu B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Good location which right in the middle of town (near Lahad Datu Centre Point and another shopping mall) and clean room. Easy to grab a bite near by restaurant or cafe. Lahad Datu downtown does get very quiet at night so do not expect much happening.

Hotel breakfast is limited choice.

Great for short stopover if you wanna rest after a long drive from Sandakan or Tawau.

We arrived in the small village of Lahad Datu for an overnight stay at Silam Dynasty hotel.

We found check in to be quick and efficient, our room spotless and adequate space and amenities. I enjoyed the view across the street where local people go about daily shopping. This is a place where people like us have a stopover on the way to the rainforrest and we really did not have high expectations for the small 3 star establishment. We were very pleasantly surprised and happy we chose this place considering some of the previous comments. we found the manager to be extremely helpful and pleasant and we were dropped at the airport in plenty of time for our flight.

The hotel cafe provided ordinary food but the place across the road has the most delicious roti for breakfast. The food market is worth a visit for the look and smell of the barbecue fish and the most delicious homemade doughnuts. Friendly helpful people made our stay here very enjoyable.

This hotel located in a center of a small town Lahad Datu. Just 6km from Lahad Datu Airport. Towel, toiletries given. Wifi service available and faster.

Nothing to do at this town, but if you're brave enough, you should spent your time walking around Pasar Rakyat Lahad Datu and feel like you're at some part of Philippines maybe.

Hard to find any good & clean restaurant here, so hotel restaurant is the best choice. Food price outside hotel also a little bit expensive compared to its quality. Hotel staff is friendly & helpful.

Overall compared to price you pay, this hotel still a good choice for your money.

Room Tip: request for room facing the road if u want a good view because the other side facing flats. But, t...

The city of Lahad Datu does not look or smell good. There is nothing to do or see here and basically, you better pass it without stop! If for any reason you need to stay one night, this hotel is fine. Probably the hotel restaurant or the room service is the only safe place to eat in this city.

Do not walk on the streets if you do not like the rotten fish smell that is basically everywhere.

The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, also the room and food price is not bad.

Presumably you are going to Lahad Datu to stay befor emoving onto the Danum rainforest or Tabin. We got the flight from KL to Kota Kinabalu and then the internal flight to Lahad. One of our cases unfortunately didnt arrive with us and other people had the same problem. We were escorted off to a little room where we filled out a lost baggage form - I think this is a common occurence. We were told that the luggage would be on the next flight. The taxi from the airport to the hotel is under a mile. The hotel overlooks one of the main streets in Lahad and I found it quite interesting people watching from the bedroom window. The room was pretty basic but then it was cheap. The people on reception spoke very little english so didnt really understand our luggage problem. We were going to get a taxi back to the airport to see if our luggage had arrived as the reception staff couldnt find a phone number for the airport but then one member of saff told us the airport had closed for the night. We were due to go to Danum the next day so decided to get an early taxi to the airport to hopefully find our luggage. After a poor meal in the restaurant in the hotel a car pulled up with our luggage. The hotel manager had to his credit tried to help us as much as he could.

Room Tip: Overlooking the main road was a bit noisy as the road was surprisingly busy but the people watching...

To be honest I'm not sure you would find a better hotel in Lahad Datu. With that said this doesn't mean we had a good experience at the hotel.

This incredible charmless hotel is situated in the middle of the equally charmless city of Lahad Datu. We stayed a night here before going to the Tabin Wildlife Resort. If you are on a similar trip, try to avoid staying in Lahad Datu and catch the early flight from Kota Kinabalu instead.

Our room was alright besides the connecting door without a sufficient lock and the fact that the sprinklers still had the plastic on which usually sits there when the system is being mounted. When asking the reception they informed us that the rooms didn't have sprinklers in them. They were only convinced once we showed them We asked for another room where the sprinkler would be in order only to find that that room didn't have a functional sprinkler either. The manager assured us that this was due to an upcoming inspection however we doubt that you would tamper with your fire safety with an inspection coming up. With a failing sprinkler system one could only wonder what the status of other fire safety systems would be.

The restaurant has a "nice" hospital feel to it and the service just wasn't there.

I stayed here twice, both one-night stay, and both on work trips. The price is very good for a clean room with coffee & tea making facility, and ironing facility sent to your room. Nice breakfast, quite delicious. Helpful and friendly counter service. If you get a room at the front facing the main road, the view is ok but don't bother open the curtain in the back room 'cause you'll be facing the backside of an old building, with its dwellers cooking, washing clothes or even go in & out of their toilets. Slippers provided in the room.

Room Tip: rooms facing the main road have nicer views
