“A Friendly Budget Hotel at a Great Location in KK”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

I have traveled many places around the world and I can truly say “Ling Ling” is one of the best hotel managers in the world. She is extremely helpful, professional and very friendly. Before we started the trip to KK (prompt emails replies) and to the end of the trip, she had helped us arranged for transportation from and to the airport and many day trips including island hopping (TAR Marine Park), white water rafting, and scuba diving. With her help, it had made the trip to KK so memorable. All of us (a group of 10 both young and old) were grateful for her help, arrangement and definitely exceeded our expectations. We definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and everyone.

Pros:
- Great location, next to Suria Sabah mall, supermarket, walking distance to massage parlor, many Chinese food places (Gaya St.), seafood restaurants, Japanese and Italian restaurants nearby, KK Ferry Terminal (Jesselton Pier), Philippine market
- Room is clean and comfortable
- Free wifi and good strength
- Value for the money for the room
- Provide affordable laundry service

Cons:
- The shower is not hot enough (lukewarm) at morning or night time
- No lift, old people who have troubled with stairs or with heavy luggage can be a problem
- No fridge in the room, but have a common area (pantry & kitchen) near the reception

Once again, thank you, Ling Ling and her service team for your warm hospitality.

On a solo biz trip to KK and booked a couple of nights at this hotel following TA reviews. Generally satisfied with the hotel. Given a choice however, my leaning would be Hotel Sixty3 or Jesselton hotel which I find more conveniently located to eat and chill spots compared to Eden54 which while is on the same popular Gaya street is 300 meters further down the road.

Positive :
1. Next to Tong Shin supermarket. A higher end supermarket, goods are slightly pricier but very convenient for quick access to sundry needs.
2. Cozy interior setup. Relaxing once you step into the cocooned environment.
3. Room is well decorated, clean, everything works and basically just right. Okay for singles or couples but families may want to reconsider.
4. Well priced for the room offering.

Negatives :
1. Not much if your mind is rightly tuned for a budget small hotel which will in fact turn out more worthwhile than you think. Just that Hotel Sixty3 is more conveniently located and Eden54 would be perfectly find if the other hotel is full which was why I am checked into Eden54 actually.

Tip: walk to Filipino market to have fresh seafood dinner. Freshly caught and grilled for you. About 700meters walk along the pier.

We stayed at Eden54 five days and we have no bad comments about it:
- rooms are spacious and tidy
- the receptionist is exceptionnaly friendly and helpful with reservations and booking tours for us, and giving us all the informations we needed to find our way around KK
- there is a refrigerator and a kitchen in the hotel so we were able to fix ourselves breakfast
We recommend without hesitation!

Room Tip: The rooms inside the hotel (without window) are darker - perfect for a good night sleep; cheaper. T...

For a budget hotel, its actually very decent. Its located near Suria Sabah , Jessleton and various eateries. The hotel is located on the first floor of a shop lot and as you go up the stairs is like walking into a manor. Tastefully decorated and quaint. Friendly staff which includes the night guard. The room is very basic, Ac, Bed , TV ,dresser ,closet and shower. Basic but comfy and clean. But be warned it is pretty small! I would suggest this hotel to those who are there for outdoor activities and such. It really helps save cost on lodging without having to give in to shared toilets . *shudder* Have a good trip!

We spent two weeks here had a great time. The amazing Ling Ling made sure we had activities each day booked, arranged transport,and took care of all those details. Nothing was too much trouble and always cheerful and friendly.

Just sufficient to serve my needs. Fruit shop and mini market next door are convenient. Appreciated Ling Ling and Alex help for the arrangement of my trip. Especially only me and my daughter, they help me to save cost and try to plan for me.
