The breakfast was awesome, so many choices, the room was specious, very comfy.
Pay for 300 but I got got a room with no view. and it's smell like a cement powder inside the room. looks like I got a room same goes with a comfortable jail.
Worthy for money. Excellent location.
Someone/Something was playing with my room doorbell at midnight. Neither staffs nor guest.
Everything is great, except the food.
We did enjoy the upgrade given, booked a superior room but upgraded to junior suite. one thing that bothers me is the bathroom size, it is quite small compared to the room. Other than that, all amenities are superb!
Good service, still able to get a nice room even though reservation being made at very last minute.
Everything was ok except our breakfast experience. There are so many people (90% are from china or maybe korea and japan). we totally ok with many people. But the struggle to get the food is so bad. They keep pushing each other, talking very-very loud, simply taking our other people table even though already noticed that the table was occupied. even though the food was nice, but the environment was quite bad. It's not the hotel problem, but the guests that most of them are from that country making the environment not so good. The pool was full with them and very noisy because they having very loud conversations among them.
Value for money and great hotel
There is a packet of spoiled food left in the refrigerator. The toiletries are the dispenser type which I would expect 4 star hotel to give out individual bottle of toiletries. The breakfast was a mess, seat keep taken by other customers even though it has been occupied. Staff in the breakfast section are not friendly and helpful. Food selection are so-so.

Ming Garden Hotel Kota Kinabalu
A clean hotel with great facilities and location which is just within walking distance to Imago Centre, Kota Kinabalu’s most happening centre. Staffs are friendly. Restaurants are offering great variety of menu and buffets. Recommended for those travel in group and with family.

Reluctant to Help
I have nothing against the hotel overall, but some of the staff may have to go for a course or training on how to listen to the customer's need. Having to stay for a week in the premise, there were times when I had to skipped breakfast buffet due to the need to turn up early for field trips. The only solution not to skip my breakfast is to ask the reception to pack my breakfast meal before going off. The only regret I had with this staff name Mariamah, was her reluctance to help me for protein based choices since I have a gluten free diet, so packing up the buns and pastries will never help. In this matter, when I requested her to pack me a nasi lemak, she gave me this stern face of No, and later I said it was absurd and need some win-win situation. I guess the Management should at least instill creative thinking of their staff rather the strict practice when it comes to pleasing their customers. Never mind, many new hotels are going to be built in this area, so, over the time, there will be plenty choices of accommodation and may the best wins.

Highly recommended, will definitely go back
This was a superb hotel with everything you could possibly want or need in Kota Kinabalu. The Sparks bar was fantastic and the food served there was so full of flavours and presented beautifully! (See pics) We stayed on the 11th floor (top) and the view was superb. The staff couldn’t do enough for you and the breakfast time was extremely busy but they coped admirably. The highlight was definitely the bar though, the servers were attentive and the Karaoke was a great laugh. It also had a pool table and sports on many screens about the place. Highly recommended!!!

We had the misfortune of staying at this hotel for 1 night as a result of an airline technical failure and it was horrible. The one positive is that the staff are very friendly and helpful. The negative is that the rooms are horrible....they look nothing like what is on the website (well at least the one we were in). The beds are like singles...so small. The shower had mould all over it so we didn't even use it. The carpets were filthy and didn't even look like theyg had been vacuumed. As soon as we got out of the lift the cigarette smoke smell was so evident and forf that reason we asked to move rooms which was kindly accommodated but in all honesty, moving to a different floor made no difference. The long and short of it is....I would definitely not return to this hotel.
