I booked the Oceania last minute and paid just under £30gbp for a basic room. I choose it because of the price and proximity from the airport (10minutes by taxi which cost 30MYR in the eve and 40MYR early morning)...
My room was modern, very clean and the bathroom, especially, was lovely- great shower and the taps are beautiful (I have a bit of a thing for taps!!). The room was also a good size, with a water/ Aqua theme and there was a fridge with complimentary water and a tv for entertainment. Don't expect much of a view from the window though...
I arrived late (10pm) and was gone by 6am so can't comment too much on the surroundings, which to be honest didn't look very exciting, I'd imagine if you want to go in to Kota town you'll need to take the hotel free shuttle or get a taxi.
The hotel were very quick for check in and check out and they were very helpful in providing a wake up call and have a taxi ready for me in the morning.
I'd definitely recommend this hotel for airport stopovers and even if you were planning to have a look round Kota for a day or go on tours from the hotel; whilst it not a luxury holiday resort and there's certainly not a great deal to do or eat in the immediate proximity, it's great value for money and perfect if you are only interested in somewhere to lay your head at night.
