I agree with others when they say the location of this inn is it's only greatest feature. Otherwise the stay wa pretty horrible. First of all the stink of cigarette smoke throughout the whole hotel is enough to give you constant nausea. Second the walls are SO thin! We couldn't sleep all night because we could hear every noise made...

We stayed for only one night and the thing that we really like about the place is it's location because it is near the night market and also just a walking distance to wisma merdeka and bayview waterfront and other restaurants and establishments. We booked through booking.com and the frontdesk personnel are friendly, thought they know a little english so...

It's been a couple of years since I stayed here (March 2011), but I doubt much has changed in that time. Apologies for the late review. The hotel is well located, and less than 10 minutes walk to the promenade, Jessleton Jetty, main shopping malls and high streets. There are lots of good cafes and bars along the road the...

We stayed in July before climbing Mount Kinabalu. The rooms were basic but very clean. The location is great. I would recommend getting a room with a window. There wasn't one available for us on the first night but we move the next day and it was much better.

Arrived in KK after mid night and leaving to north early morning the next day so we decided to go cheap. Location was great. Very basic. The A/C control was not working. Very small room. Has running hot water. Quite clean. Staffs are helpful and smiley.

Friendly staff, good location, quiet at night, clean room with hot water shower--If 84RM/night is in your price range for a double room (no breakfast), then I would definitely recommend booking this place. Laundry is 8RM per kilo and can be done the same day. If you're interested in visiting an island in the national marine park while you're staying...

Hotel is very basic. Clean room and with hot shower. It is in the middle of the city and Gaya street is just a few steps at the back where you can buy stuff of all kinds on Sunday mornings. Staff is friendly and can help you with bookings for local tours. The hotel has no restaurant but eateries are...

Good location, nice frienly staff, many restaurants close by, walking distance to most places and very reasonable price. That is why this hotel is not bad at all. In fact, it is quite good.
