“Outstanding hotel!”
Reviewed 9 June 2009

Over the past five years I have been visiting three times Kota Kinabalu, after this latest unique experience that I lived in Novotel 1Borneo, I cannot imagine returning to KK without staying again at this hotel.

Natural smiling faces, devoted and professional staff, this is how I would describe all staff members we met during our stay.

The strategic location of this hotel offers the access to most of the must see places around KK within twenty minutes. The free and frequent shuttle bus adds high value to this hotel compared to so many other hotels I experienced in this city.

Our spacious Superior room was fully equipped, even with unexpected devices like a DVD player connected to a large flat screen TV. Room style is modern, fashion design and clean. At online booking we requested room with a Kinabalu mountain view; this is what we were granted upon arrival.

The “Square restaurant” is a must go place for all gourmets who want to meet with the inventive cuisine of a French chef, through a large selection of delicious and delicate dishes. I recommend to all gourmands to accompany an assortment of sweet dessert with a local tea.

I tried the fitness center twice, where I found all what I needed: an electric running machine to eliminate all the extra calories that I accumulated at the “Square restaurant”! If you go for a walk around the outdoor swimming pool, don’t forget to bring a towel and your swimsuit because you will not escape from temptation of relaxing inside.

One word about this amazing lift, the average wait time for a lift to come at the 14 storey was always less than 14 sec!

We were delighted by the high speed free broadband connection in the room with a rate >1Mbits/s! For people who forgot to travel with their laptop don’t worry, all guests are able to use the Apple MAC corner located at the lobby entrance.

With Novotel 1borneo, now everyone can enjoy a hotel with a high standard of quality at an affordable price!

Reviewed 7 June 2009

This was an exceptional price considering its level of hotel. It is more suited for busienss travellers but is still great for anyone. The pool was a bit cold though. We are over here specifcally for diving and had to catch cabs into Jesselton which is 25MYR each way. We wre only in here for 3 days as it was then booked out (mind you we only booked a wekk before hand on a spontaneous trip). The best part of this area though is the 1Borneo shopping mall. There is a huge supermarket underneath which does sell alcohol before 9pm. The shops were not completely high end and not like local KK cdity shopping, more like a Westfield in Australia. Overall a good hotel.
