Had a great stay here for one night (before departing Sandakan).
Location: not in the heart of town but Sandakan isn't exactly a happening place so it was nice to have a clean place away from the crowds.
Room: Large room, big bed, relatively fast internet (wifi), bathroom large with rainshower (however, the drain was clogged so we couldn't use the rainshower as we would have flooded the room...
Staff: efficient and friendly
Restaurants: there are a couple of restaurants attached to the hotel as well as some satellite roti places. We avoided the hotel restaurant and found a great little roti place nearby. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of it but it was very tasty. Only one staff spoke English and he was extremely helpful and friendly. The roti was very good there.
Conclusion: great when you have a flight the next day and need a clean, reliable business hotel to freshen up in and catch up on emails after a few weeks of rainforest and/or scuba diving.
