Nothing too fancy about the check in process but when I asked the front desk folks on the nearby petrol station, they are unable to let me know the location and just let me know the area itself.. Well that was not a big deal but at least they should know the location more than the tourists and not to provide a general reply.
Was assigned a room on the 3rd floor and luckily the room has a window and is facing the sea view. I requested for higher floor rooms though in my booking. Room is clean with basic amenities like power kettle, cups, tea bags, hair dryer. The shower head produces a powerful jet to let you have a relaxing shower after a day's outing in Sabah.
The hotel is just opposite Suria Sabah mall and good for those folks who likes shopping in malls or prefer to watch late night movie as GSC is within the mall itself. The hotel is within walking distance to Gaya Sunday Market, Philippine Market, Waterfront (~5-10mins walk). You can go to the WaterFront for your meals as I realised there is not much food option around hotel area.
The room comes with a breakfast option and the breakfast is good with ample varieties and you can opt to sit outside (non air-con) and has a morning sea view. A good way to kickstart your journey!
All in all, Gaya Centre Hotel is a nice hotel with a strategic location but probably too far for a walk for the elderly folks to the above mentioned places.
