“Tired”
Reviewed September 24, 2009

Best Western is the world's largest hotel chain, & brands itself as a 3 star budget accomodation at quality prices. However, that is no excuse for such a tired hotel!

The hotel has an overall tired look, starting from the hotel facade. No bell-boy service upon arrival and departure. The lift was so tiny that there was hardly any standing room after my wife and I have entered the lift with our 3 luggages. Worse, the lift has no sensor, & it's a challenge not to get hit on the shoulders by the quick-closing lift door. The room, though clean, was too tired looking and small. No internet service available in the room; either you bring your notebook to the lobby area for free wifi connection or use the only 1 available PC for common use at the lobby. No gym & swimming pool.

Breakfast buffet which was included in the package, was ordinary. The little restaurant (which also becomes a bar in the evening) gets full quickly, so it's advisable to go early to avoid having your breakfast sitting on a high bar stool.

If you're coming for a good hotel experience, give this a miss. Stay here only if you are just looking for a no-frills cheap night stay as an alternative to backpacker hostel, & not particularly fussy about all the shortcomings. Location is good however - near the Jesselton pier and there are some shopping and restaurants nearby.
