Best hotel and good location
Staff at front office are polite and helpful. All times greeting guests with their smile. Located near to Sunday Gaya street. The hotel is small but they have good staff from housekeeping and front office. They are very details on customer service and customers need. Almost full amenities inside the room. Front office do called to check on our needs. They do turn down service too...amazing. Would highly recommend to my friends and relatives if anyone planning to stay in kota kinabalu.

Great Service Matters
You know you're in good hands when you step in (sweaty from KK's generous sun) and everyone looks happy to see you. Plus the guests who were checking out all couldn't hide how pleased they were with the hotel. Another good sign. As for me, check in was quick and painless. Stayed here for 2 nights and didn't find any fault with the hotel. It is moderately priced, clean, modern and comfortable. I stayed in the single room and had a great view of the Clock Tower and of course, the incredible blue skies of KK. Can't really comment on the Sunday Market as I went back to KL on a Saturday but I particularly enjoyed just hanging outside the hotel at the public square. All in all, recommended! Quick Tip: Less than 5 mins walk away from the hotel is Biru Biru Cafe that serves yummy brekkie and yummier drinks.

Love this place
I stayed here many times when I was in Sabah, I really loved the place, the beds are comfortable, the place is really clean, the staff are wonderful. They remembered me every time, greeted me like an old friend and even gave me a fruit bowl. The wifi is good. And its in a great location.

The target market is in the name! Clean & great location
The reception staff all speak Chinese and this hotel is very popular with Chinese tourists so was very busy. We were only able to stay for one night as fully booked. Great downtown location across the road from airport shuttle bus drop-off point. Close to gaya street restaurants and right at the Sunday market.

Good Location
The place is in a pretty good location. Jalan Gaya, with many eateries, is just the corner. Jesselton Point is about 15 minutes walk away and there is a major shopping centre in the vincinity as well. The size of the room is ok, and the sheets and towels are clean. However, it is a bit noisy at night as I can hear singing (probably from a KTV nearby).
