“Very comfortable, very satisfied!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

The hotel room was very comfortable. We don't normally sleep well in hotels but we managed to have a very good night sleep in this one. The surrounding is quiet (you can't hear car noise or party noise at night). The hall way outside our rooms is long and wide just like those in 5 star hotels, so you can't really hear people talking in room next door.

They have a restaurant called Catch 22 which serve seafood. The food was yummy! There's also a jetty in front of the hotel which the hotel receptionist said will be operational soon. Traveling to town centre was not a problem as there is shuttle service provided by the hotel. Overall we enjoyed the hotel and our trip in Kota Kinabalu.

Room Tip: Choose room on top floor next to the sky garden if you want to smoke. As smoking is not allowed in r...

We enjoyed staying in this hotel. Hotel is located beside a river park hence it's quite peaceful and we had a very comfortable stay. Bed and pillow are comfortable, shower was great.

Hotel is very modern and doesn't look like a 3 star hotel at all. We had a wonderful stay experience in this hotel and would definitely recommend to travelers who wish to visit Kota Kinabalu.

initially I was a bit hesitated to book this hotel since there's not many reviews and the location doesn't seem to be in town area. However the price is relatively cheap compare to other 3 star hotels. Therefore I gave it a try.

First of all, I was surprised that they offered shuttle service for FREE. I called upon for taxi service and they offered to pick me and my family from the airport. Very Fast check in. Since it's still early, we decided to visit the town area. We wanted to take a cab and we were surprised that the receptionist offered to send us to town area and pick us up for free again. Save quite a bit in terms of taxi fare.

Secondly, the restaurant is newly opened and pricing is reasonable. We had an unexpectedly full meal and the seafood they serve is fresh. It's western style and perfectly suitable for young couple like us.

Thirdly, the rooms are spacious with very new furniture. It's so clean and we could hardly see any dust. The toilet is very modern and shower pressure is strong. Hot water is sufficient. Bed is very comfortable and aircon is cold.

Lastly, their roof top garden has very nice view. Their room service is efficient with very friendly staff. Overall, I had a wonderful holiday and I will definitely return to this hotel if I ever visit Kota Kinabalu again.

Keep up your good work.
