Located in the middle of Kota Kinabalu (KK), opposite Sabah Tourism Board. Within 30 minutes drive from KK International Airport, by taxi cost RM30.00. This hotel has no car parks for guests where have to park at limited council car parks along the streets in front and at the back of the hotel. Apart from taxi, did not see any public transport around this hotel.
The entrance / lobby gives you a bright welcome. Simple decorations but intriguing with photographs of the old KK. In fact, if you walk along all corridors of the 5 levels of this hotel, there are photographs of old KK hanging on the walls along the corridors and I did spend sometime looking at them.
Clean and spacious are two words that came to my mind when I saw my room on the 5th. floor. Mind you, this is a non smoking hotel. We stayed in a family room (with 2 king size beds) as my son tagged along for this trip. I like the toilet as it is spacious and has rain shower. The beds (mattresses) are the soft type and the pillows too, not my liking but no complain at all. Plenty of pilliows (about 4 on the bed with one extra in the closet). There is a safe, size of a laptop. It is good as you can keep your laptop or ipad in it. Wifi is a bit weak on the 5th. floor but what the use of it when on holidays. The TV in the room is of those smart TV (with paid movies and games), however the one in my room cannot receive local or satellite TV. Upon checking, did call for maintenance (came within 2 minutes) but not able to solve the problem. No much complaint as not going to sit in to watch TV. Neither have swimming pool nor a gym in this hotel. Bottled drinking water in the room are complimentary and there is a built in travelling electric socket, how thoughtful of them.
No breakfast provided. However, there is bakery / deli on the left side of this hotel. The variety of choices of breads and food are not bad.There is also convienence store adjacent to this bakery. The Suria Sabah (a shopping center) and Jesselton Point (where you can take boats to the islands) are within 5 and 10 mintues walk away (turn left and walk that direction) and there are plenty of restaurants and banks situated around this hotel. On Sundays morning, there is a tamu (open market) at Jalan Gaya, about 1 minute walk (turn right and walk that direction) from this hotel.
Not situated at KK waterfront (back of this hotel), hence can't see the sunrise and sunset over KK. Anyway, it is about 5-10 minutes walk to KK Waterfront.
My only compliant is that there was a stain (about 6 inches long, dark brown) on the white bedsheet. Hope the housekeeping staffs would be more attentive.
Absolutely, I wll be back here.
