very nice stay, only the drink at the lobby lounge is extremely expensive, almost triple from market price, should reduce the price to make its competative and happening to attract more customer coming in and relax at the beautiful lounge. thanks

Ok, if im going to Kota Kinabalu, this is my first choice hotel, it was because firstly it was near the bank and its far from traffic jammed. the hotel is also luxurious with affordable promotion price. the breakfast is also delicious.

This hotel used to be less attractive and expensive. With the offering rate between RM150 to RM 200 at the moment inclusive breakfast for two, it is a great bargain and weekend out of to Kota Kinabalu.

I've stayed for the second time, Deluxe & Superior. So far I got not much complain about it. Maybe the guest room security need to tighten up by the management. I will still going back to this hotel in my next visit.

            I was very surprised that this hotel turned out to be an excellent choice. I was expecting a run down hotel but it isn’t at all. Of course it isn’t a grand opulent resort but everything is clean and comfortable . We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet very much. We stayed at the 11th floor and I enjoyed looking at the city view at night. The balcony needs supervision from adults if there are children along because the wall is quite low and dangerous. Apart from that, the rest of the room aspects are very good . It is spacious and the bed is comfortable . I will definitely recommend this to travelers especially those with their own car. You get free parking too. They required a deposit of rm50upon check in which is reasonable enough. They have a cafe, a mini lounge pub for those who wants a drink or two and a very under stocked store, haha so make a stop at a nearby 7-Eleven before checking in

            Furniture and room bad condition . ”
            All the furniture is in old condition,yeah i know this is an old hotel but at least the management should clean it but they're not . The aircond was very dirty makes my son gets flu because he is so sensative with dust . On top of that the thing that caught up my attention is how come i had to pay the SSTduring my checkout when i already book and paid in full amount in 2 weeks before the SST launch by yesterday ..this is so confusing. So if i bought something on Lazada for example before the SST launch than i should be paying the tax amount once i get the stuff when it arrive after the SST ?? and some more if im not mistaken that price i paid was supposed already include all the tax or service charge .. In staffing matter ,while having my breakfast i'd request a hot water but when the waiter gave it to me i realise that the glass was so dirty and oily even the waiter did notice it but he just stared at me then walk away. For this experience i will never put this hotel on my list again ..
