- Shopping & Culinary
The hotel is very strategic because it’s centrally located in town . The surrounding is convenient as there is Watson, guardian , and seafood restaurants that you definitely want to try. as for the hotel, it is very safe because you will require the keycard to access any level from the elevator . i had stayed in a twin room without window but I don’t mind that and the space is just enough . Not too big . We are not staying in the room also. the room is very clean .definitely will stay again .

Good location. Good reception. Fast check in and check out.

The room was smaller than anticipated, without room to maneuver. It is good for solo travelers but i won't recommend it for family vacation.
- Business travel
Room very small and the price not worth it

A highly recommended and affordable hotel in the middle of the city. Even though the room is small, it is clean, with good interior design and comfortable. It felt like a 5 star hotel.

- Backpacking
The location is perfect for food lovers.
- Business travel
Pleasant stay. Stayback for 2 night, travel alone. Room is big enough and cozy. Toilet spacey and clean. It’s a basic room for 1 person, I don’t expect more. It reached my expectation. Centre of the city. Walking distance to centrepoint, surrounded by restaurants and pharmacy. You will never get bored.

This is my second time staying here, my first time being two or three years ago. I regularly visited Kota Kinabalu for meetings and vacations, but I often chose other hotels because I prefer hotels closer to modern shopping malls like Imago or Suria Sabah. I wasn't aware that this hotel just recently underwent renovation, and when I got into the room, it was such a pleasant surprise to see a refreshing, new look. The room, although still a bit crammed, looks more spacious and cleaner now, as they got rid of unnecessary furniture and utilized small spaces smartly. The gorgeous lightning and the cream-colored wallpaper made the room look cheerful and welcoming. Restaurants are aplenty nearby, and if you are new in Sabah, you should try our very own Sabahan fast food chain, Borenos Fried Chicken! It opens 24 hours and is just a few steps away from the hotel. If you are not in the mood for fast food, there are plenty of seafood restaurants nearby, and a Muslim restaurant is just around the corner. Parking space is provided for hotel guests, just make sure the receptionist stamp your parking ticket during check out before you give it to the parking attendant! The nearby Asia City Complex (next to the hotel) is not much of a mall; it closes early and there are not many shop available except for a few massage parlors and handicraft shops. The complex houses a few other budget hotels. I didn't spend much time exploring inside. If you want a better shopping experience, take a Grab and go to Imago or Suria Sabah instead! Overall, I love the new look of this hotel and I would definitely stay here again!

The room is way too small compare to your picture!!! I only can stand in front of the bed to capture picture, not much space left! Please change your room picture which shown in website! It was a an unpleasant stay comment from my friend
