KK Waterfront Hotel is smackdabbed right in the center of KK city, therefore, making it the best location in terms of accessibility to all the interesting spots (i.e. nightlife) in KK. Some of the rooms in the hotels boast a fantastic view of the sea. The rooms are very clean - I love the water pressure in the shower! Just be careful of the floors in the bathroom. It can get really slippery. Wear the flipflops that the hotel provide - they provide a few of different sizes in the room. The lights in the rooms make up for a cozy ambience - I had a great sleep in all the five nights i was there! I stayed in a deluxe room. There is a huge flat screen TV in the room, however, the channels are quite limited.

The best thing about the hotel is that it is located just opposite STARBUCKS and of course other lovely eatery joints. So, if you do get hungry, just go down and out and you'll have what you want. The hotel is a 2-minute walk across to the waterfront where some of the best nightlife and water holes are.

The hotel overall looks chic /elegant, lobby area is comfortable. Check in/out was swift, however, I must comment on the grooming of the staff. I think the management could do more about staff grooming overall - no long colored finger nails, no chewing gum while speaking and checking in /out guests, no flashy make-up, and have proper uniforms for the staff. Remember, every word that you say, everything that you wear and every move that you make speaks on behalf of the hotel & management.

I would stay in this hotel again when I'm in Kota Kinabalu. It's value for money.

Stayed here for one night in April, and you could not get a better location as it's right opposite the the bars and restaurants. Though, that does mean it can be noisy, especially if it's Saturday night when we stayed. The music goes on until about 2am, and you can hear the planes taking off from KK airport. Recommend earplugs if not staying out too late.

I stayed for a night. This place is just perfect. It’s located at strategic location. Walking distance from flee market & fine dine areas. The lobby staff was very friendly.

The room was great & cosy. I stayed with 3 friends in a family room. The hotel room rate is reasonable. It’s better than cheap back packer’s hotels nearby.

Pro's :- Strategic location & great room. (new)

Con's :- No waiting area for taxi. Drop of & hop in on a taxi very difficult.
