“Fine”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Stayed as part of a Kinabalu climb tour package so don't know exactly what it cost, but it was fine - nice big rooms.

Perhaps a bit charachterless but it does the job and makes for a comfortable stay.

Stayed August 2012, traveled solo

We spent our first night in Borneo at this hotel. Upon arrival there were 2 ladies and a guy singing songs in a very nice but very loud way. The staff at the reception was a bit slow, although when we asked him to change one of the rooms which turned out to be smoking eventhough at the booking I emphasized that we would prefer non-smoking ones, they changed it without any problems.The rooms were clean and spacious enough for 2 people. When we went for a walk we realised that it is a bit further from the city centre and seems to be in the middle of constructions. The breakfast was ok,serving both Asian and European types of dishes . Overall it is good value for little money..

I chose Sabah Oriental as my first hotel on my trip around Sabah. I was disappointed first because I expected a real 4 star hotel. Well, it turn out it wasn't. However after my four weeks of travelling I returned gladly back to this hotel. Compared to the Sabah-standard of hotels it wasn't a bad choice after all. The staff was friendly, the room spacious (but dated) and the breakfast above the average. If you need a room for three nights or so and get a good deal, pick Sabah Oriental. Just don't expect a 4star extravaganza and you will not be disappointed.

I stayed few times at this hotel since few years back. It was a nice 3 stars hotel actually. I love everything inside the room and this is the only hotel that i ever encountered provides sarong and prayer mat in the room. Service also tip top. Only that the food wasn't my cup of tea and the pool was small.

Room Tip: Ask for the room that facing to the building/main road. Its kinda cool at night.

This hotel is pretty expensive and the service isn't very effective. I spent 3 nights there and they never refurbished the toiletries for example.
I was glad it was out of the hustle and bustle from the city so i could enjoy some chill time and the pool but the smell of sewage made me go away from it really fast.
The buffet breakfast was nice though and the service in the "oriental cafe" was really good.

The service is okay. There's not much info I can tell since I only stay there for 1 night. I like the bathroom coz its the only hotel I know in KK that ALL ROOM have Bathtub. Location is maybe 5 minute drive to centre point. This hotel provide shuttel bus to the city, two trips a day. If u wish to take a taxi, it'll cos MYR 12. They also provide bathrobe, slippers, toiletries, and iron.

Like : Bathtub, Worth price.
Liked least : Room condition, its look a little bit dusty maybe.
