“Great location and value”
Reviewed July 6, 2010

After reading reviews of hotels in KK, I decided on the Eden 54. Unfortunately it was booked but they offered to refer us to a hotel in the same price range. The Sarangnova was where they sent us. It's sort of a micro-boutique hotel. It's only been open for around 6 months which is good and bad. Everything is new, a good thing in the tropics where mildew sets in fast. The rooms are tiny but functional, the decor is centered around the birds of Borneo, it's a nice touch. They are still working out some of the bugs with the staff but they always cheerfully made right any omission. I have to admit, one of the best things about this hotel is the coffee shop next door. The Fong Cafe is the perfect place for a cheap breakfast or a relaxing afternoon tea. I was sad to leave it behind when we left.

I would stay at the Sarangnova again, the minor aggravations were outweighed by the advantages.

We stayed here for two nights and it was quite nice. The room were extremely clean, the bed very comfortable and cushy. Shower is also nice and big. The whole hotel has a 'Birds of Sabah' theme so each room is themed on a different bird. Really nice idea I think and quite unique in Kota Kinabalu.

They don't provide breakfast but I think this is actually better because Sarangnova is surrounded by lots of restaurants and cafes on Jalan Gaya so it is easy to walk around. Right downstairs is the Fong Ip cafe which had really good food and delicious kedai kopi. Right next to that is a local bar where we met a lot of friendly local people. I think Sarangnova has a great location and is a very nice place to stay.
