“Best Budget Hotel in Sandakan”
Reviewed July 12, 2009

After much searching for a nice, clean, budget hotel in Sandakan which there seem to be a lack of! I came across this little gem recommended on a forum. Its a fairly new modern hotel about a block back from the sea front. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable with TV and aircon and double glazed windows to keep out street noise. Breakfast is included and their is Internet and I think WI-FI. We booked a standard Queen for two nights and were traveling with friends. Our friends were given a corner room with a sea view and they asked us if we wanted to be on the same floor which was the first floor. We were given a room with street view which had a locked connecting door through to the next room, I guess for families. Later in the evening I asked to be moved as when we got neighbors in the next room you could hear them too clearly through the connecting room door. The staff were very accommodating and moved us to the 3rd floor which was quieter. Our new room was a corner room with a sea view and it was a much nicer room with a bigger bathroom, also it was a much quieter floor. So my advice is unless your traveling as a family and want two rooms next to each other! ask for a corner room with a sea view preferably not on the first floor as this floor can be noisy as this floor fills up first and has through traffic. The higher the floor the quieter it is but the downside is there is no lift, only stairs! The staff are very friendly and helpful and your room is cleaned every day. The location is excellent, close to the bus station, shops and sea front where there are plenty of nice restaurants and cafe's.

So advantages, nice, clean, modern, comfortable, helpful friendly staff, great location, Internet, free breakfast and great price!

Disadvantages - no lift only stairs although there are not many steps between floors. No safety deposit box at front desk or in your room even though it says there is on website!
