- Business travel
I used to enjoy staying in this hotel each time I'm in Kota Kinabalu before but not this time around. The tv was not working and the aircond was not cold enough despite the temperature being set to the coolest setting. The food remains the same for the past few years without any new menu. I suggest the hotel to promote more local dishes such as nasi kuning, local rojak and soto etc instead of the very common nasi lemak, fried rice and noodles for breakfast. The only plus point is that the staff are friendly and courteous and they made my day. I have not visited the swimming pool hence I'm not able to comment. I have no issue with the room.
- Business travel
I am regular there and always use online booking. Never put comments before, but I think this time I must give. The room is clean but old furniture (building too). No wi-fi (except at the lobby, but never tried it). TV can't use. The socket plug damaged or something. They never repaired it (fyi. Was already assigned to the same room few times). Breakfast, I got used to it already. No changes since the past 3 years? Perhaps the same chef.
- Romantic Vacation
My fifth stay here and still very satisfying. Worth the price 👌🏻
- Business travel
Was upset with the clogged sink.
- Business travel
Hot water gave a loud noise. Very uncomfortable to shower. Would disturb other guests. Otherwise everything else is great. Would definitely stay here again
- Family vacation
The breakfast is very good. Enjoy staying at the hotel and It was very closed to the city.
- Family vacation
No hot water in the room, small refrigerator looks not proper service, food dining is good but plates and table are not well clean surface during breakfast. Kindly improve the service.
- Business travel
Stay at Jr Suite. Aircond was not cold. Sweaty night. Do not expect modern furniture and deco. Feel like you are stuck in 90's. Premium charge with unpleasantly stay. Beware folks!
- Family vacation

- Business travel
