We stayed here twice in a week, before and after a short trip to Sabah. The hotel is centrally located on the riverfront, within walking distance to the Main Bazaar and other shopping malls and restaurants nearby. We were there during the ASEAN International Film Festival weekend so the hotel was very busy.
What's good: the location (as mentioned); the renovated rooms were modern and comfortable; the breakfast spread had a wide choce of international and local dishes; the staff were firendly and obliging.
What's not so good: The rooms facing the main road are noisy. Housekeeping is erratic - on checking into my room for the second stay, we found there were no towels, toilet paper or facial tissues, and it took multiple phone calls and finally me going down to the reception desk, to get what we needed. My friend who requested for certain pillows had the same experience.
