The staff was uniformly excellent, pleasant and obviously well trained. Housekeeping should be grounded until they wash all surfaces in the rooms. I had a nice stay and found it an excellent value, but even I could tell that it's dirty and I'm a guy. In addition to a good cleaning, the hotel would benefit from wifi on each floor....

We were in Kota Kinabalu for 3 days and our stay in the hotel was very pleasant compared to the small hotel that we scouted. The room is clean and tidy, air-conditioning works fine. There's the usual complimentary bottled water,Electric Kettle and Coffee/ Tea. Though I don't have pictures of the washroom, it was clean and acceptable. There's free breakfast,...

Pleasantly surprised by this excellent budget hotel. Being my second hotel stay in Malaysian Borneo, I was expecting yet another horror show, only to find a very well cared for and managed older hotel. Check in was extremely efficient and within minutes of arriving, I had my key, made my free airport shuttle arrangements and was off to my room....

we stayed there one night as our flight arrived at 11pm in K K and our next flight was at 7am so we wanted a cheap hotel close to the airport. I called them to book the shuttle service and they said we just have to wait outside the airport. We waited and no one came, so I called again...

Clean rooms. Excellent service which include airport shuttle, breakfast (variety). Friendly and helpful staffs. Satisfied with everything. A choice for late night arrival from airport since it has excellent location from airport. However, it is far from other attractions. The wifi connection only available in lounge area.

I have stayed in this hotel in three other occasions before this. Nothing about the decor, rooms, service and even the breakfast has changed about this hotel except for the wifi. It got worst, completely no wifi. At least previously, the lobby has wifi. And this is very important to me in my work. I did not change hotel when...

Stayed here overnight as I had an early morning flight out to Brunei. Booking and payments done in advance via Agoda.com. Location is excellent, hotel is less than 10 minutes from KK Airport! Would have rated this 4 out of 5 but the airport transfer from the airport showed up 40 mins late, which quite put me off! It was...

If you are in need of a quick, clean place to stay with friendly staff during transit, this is the place. Very good value for money, and the airport transfer is offered all the time (great for our 6am flight). We stayed twice, once at the start of our trip, once at the end. Both stays were perfect for what...
