This hotel is the highest building in Sandakan and it may not have won any architectural awards but it is right on the water and right in the centre of town. Inside there is a really decent four star hotel. We paid about A$70 per night for two nights in a queen deluxe room without breakfast on Agoda which makes it great value for money.
Our room 22nd floor was spacious, clean, attractively furnished and had a gorgeous view over the sea, which I imagine most rooms would have given the angle at which the hotel is built. It had all the facilities that you would expect in a hotel of this quality including a safe and an iron. The free wifi was rather slow.
I was disappointed in the housekeeping; face clothes were removed but not replaced, toiletries were not replaced, glasses were not washed. Only small things but I expected more in such a good hotel.
The infinity pool on the 13th floor was pleasant and had a lovely view across the sea. Check-in was efficient and friendly. In general the staff were friendly and welcoming.
There is a shopping mall in the same building directly behind the hotel and a supermarket opposite. There are plenty restaurants on the waterfront and easy walking distance throughout the town. There is the 24 Jam restaurant directly behind the hotel for a cheap breakfast but don't rely on it for an early start as we found it closed on a Sunday morning, not 24 Jam.
I would recommend starting your visit at the Information centre which was very helpful
