be careful as there are 2 Shangri-La hotels in Kinabalu. The Shangri-la resort which is located approx. 30 mins. outside and the one downtown for which I am writing this review which does not belong to THE hotelchain (we got this information at the hotel).
It is a 2* hotel located very central. you just have to cross a main road to reach the city centre. Even though crossing this road is very difficult as there is a roundabout circulation directly after the hotel, so the traffic never stops and most of the car drivers do not care about tourists standing on the street. So use caution!
Our room was very nice, good size and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was great.
