      Improvement to bring back the glory days”
      Toilet needs repairing especially the bath tub. Taps needs to be serviced to ensure water wastage can be reduced as a cost saving and green initiatives. Great breakfast concept to reduce food wastage however usage of microwave should be clearly noted so that customers are aware how their food are being prepared or heated. Actual example as I brought a vegan bread to be toasted with specific instruction to be put into an oven yet it was being microwaved. Amazing orange tiles just need some modern technology added to ensure electricity usage can be further managed in an effective manner.

      The location hotel is very strategic and the shops eg: night market, filipino market and other shops are just nearby and walking distance. The room is very nice. We have stayed there for one night. We have requested the honeymoon deco at our room and suprisingly it’s free. Overall the hotel is value for money.

      Charming colonial hotel without pretence in an authentic neighborhood”
      We stayed for one night only on our first ever trip to Sabah and we found this colonial hotel fabulously located, exceedingly charming, tastefully appointed, and their Front Desk Team highly supportive. We just booked a one-night stay to wrap our next visit to KK in December. Make sure you pick the 2nd floor with the room facing Gaia Street treetops, and be amazed by all the authentic neighborhood action below. The Sunday market is definitely an extra perk, right at your footsteps. Look for endemic fruit sellers (and growers), hunt for curiosities, snap away. Right downstairs is a lively corner bar, a swanky wine shop, and across the road a 24/7 mini mart as well as a highly popular local eatery. A GEM IN KOTA KINABALU.

      Great Hotel ”
      We love this hotel, it is so nicely situated, easy to walk around town. Staff are fantastic and rooms are nice and big. Huge bath/shower and big bathroom. Been back many times. Sadly the beds are very hard, and you will be uncomfortable if you don't like a hard bed. For this reason only, we wont return, sadly. Because its a great hotel with good facilities and lovely staff. Such a special atmosphere, beautiful old hotel !

      Rooms are old and outdated but the staff is real friendly, helpful and able to book tours for us. Food is everywhere. It was undergoing renovations so there was a bit of noise and didn't look nice in the lobby but it was definitely enjoyable to stay here.

      Had a great time here even though it was for 3 days. We stayed in the family suite which was very spacious, bathroom facilities were excellent with bath and separate shower unit. No problem with traffic either and large shopping mall only 10 minutes walk away. If you fancy trying Durian the night market is a short walk but Best Buy and sit there or get ripped off. Have fun and explore.
