Hotel location was very good. The staff very friendly and helpful.
Strategic location, good service, very confrtble
I like staying at this hotel because of its strategic location and convenient valet parking behind the hotel. The breakfast is quite tasty as well.
Everything was ok exclude the TV. old style. hopefully can change new style also the hair dryer old style.
The breakfast is not ready by 06:30.
Everything was good, keep up the good service
Next to a police station, safety and security won't be an issue for travellers who are concern about it. The coffee house offers good food too should one prefers to stay in the hotel.
This is great value for money. Right in town, great staff, large room.
Nice as always stay experienced
Old school hotel but acceptable for its close to Sunday market dan other amenities.

Nice place with friendly people
We stayed 3 nights here. And the hotel is perfectly situated near the waterfront and the market. The staff was very helpful and thougtful. And suggested also possibilities for a tour to the Kinabatangan river. And we could stall our luggage at the hotel and take only stuff for two nights with us. The room was large, clean and very soft sheets in the bed. The only disadvantage was that the reception was to be renovated and altough it was written this started at 9 am, the works started at 8am during the breakfast. Breakfast itself was not so special. A bit basic. You could order eggs but there was not a lot of choice.

Spacious, clean, worth the money spent.
I stayed in a family room that comes with 2 queen beds back in January 2017. Room was clean, tidy and well maintained. though the hotel looks a bit old-fashion from the outside, but the quality of accommodation they have provided is great. My family and I were so glad we chose this hotel.

A nice hotel that was great value
I booked a night in Hotel Sandakan after our Kinabatangan trip for our group at the end of our holiday. The hotel was clean, comfortable and the rooms were very large. Wifi is available in the rooms, along with a very comfortable bed, tv with a good choice of channels. The shower room was clean with complementary toiletries. Breakfast was available in a large dining room with plenty of seats, it was served buffet style with lots of choice and it was very nice. The staff were very friendly and even arranged for an older member of staff to run my group back to the airport after checkout. As we had time on our hands before our flight he took us to the memorial gardens and gave us a guided tour telling us anything we wished to know. A great hotel to stay in and remarkable value for money.

Business Class Hotel
We stayed two nights in one of the Junior Suites. Great views out over the city. Room was spacious, well appointed and clean. The bed was large and very comfortable. However there were a few 'Asian' anomalies such as the kettle having a 2 pin round plug and power socket was a 3 pin square?? and the main shower didn't work (luckily there was one over bath one too). Breakfast included was a simple fare. We got a good deal through "booking.com" which was far less that the walk-in rate.. so do your research. Great location, right in the heart of the city. We would stay there again.

Nice hotel, pleasant staff
I have had some nice experience and some frustrating experiences with hotels. I am glad to say I was really glad I chose Sandakan Hotel for this trip with my whole family. We arrived well before noon and with all our baggage find it uncomfortable to get around so we tried our luck and the man at the reception by the name of Neil pleasantly hand the keycard and let us into our room and even offered to help park my car at the hotel's parking bay. As I parked it nearby I thought it is okay to leave it as it was. The next morning found that there was a parking ticket on my windshield and it being Sunday the payment kiosk was closed. I was worried as in some places I know parking tickets carry heavy penalties for late payment and I know nobody I can count on to pay the ticket for and at the same time I cannot stay another day. It would be ridiculous to stay on for another day just to pay a parking ticket. The same person Neil came to my rescue again. When I told him about the parking ticket he ever so pleasantly told me not to worry and he would help me to pay for me. Best of all, on monday he texted me to inform me he just paid the parking ticket. With all the trouble saved from me I cannot help but think the hotel must be a good one to have pleasant and considerate staff. That apart, the hotel is also nicely located in old township of Sandakan with a nice restaurant on the ground floor. The room we had was also nicely furnished. I definitely would stay at this hotel on my next trip to Sandakan.
