The room itself was nice, clean and comfortable. Normally people would say this hotel is not in a convenient location. Times square of Kota kinabalu is not so far away from the main part of the city, however because of the road system it is quite difficult to walk down there, meaning you have to pay for taxi every time you go out. There is no taxi waiting for you outside the hotel, so you have to ask the receptionists to call it for you. the hotel rate is actually higher than some of nicer hotels in the town. So, not worth paying for this hotel.
I would give you still 3 stars if the location is the only disadvantage. Unfortunately some of the receptionists are quite rude, making you hesitant to ask for anything including taxi. It is not that they don't know how to speak. But can they just simply say "please take your seat while I call for taxi" instead of "Sit down there!". This is just one example.
They know the location is one thing their guests do not like about them, so they had put up ads saying there are cheaper/free shuttle to the city or airport. We asked for that, and they said "oh, the ad is a very old one". Next day, the ad was still there, so we asked once more. the same answer. Why would they not take off whatever things that they know out of date? If not, they should provide the service even though they are an old ads.
One more thing I did not like was that they did not provide complimentary services for the second night. When we came back for the second night, towels were not there, coffee/tea/water was not there.
We just did not know for what we were paying so much money.
