Reviewed 26 November 2009

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel recently. On the plus side, the rooms were modern and chic, complete with LCD TVs and a funky bathroom. The public spaces and restaurants were well designed. Minuses - service was very average, as was the food. Also, the bar on the first floor had an opening overlooking the lobby, which meant that it was constantly noisy. However, overall, the hotel is excellent value for money, and I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is out of town a fair bit which is a bonus as KK can be too busy./noisy/smelly. There is a free shuttle from the adjacent shopping mall. Make sure you book in with the concierge on the ground floor just inside the hypermall enterance first as the bus fills early. Don't forget to book your return bus time when you get off as well.
The hotel is good value and the hypermall is a bonus if the weather takes a turn for the worse as it did on our visit. the pool / bar area is also half under cover so you can still enjoy the pool area as torrential rains fall.
Avoid the Square resturant though, there is much better value and better food in the many restturantss inside the huge mall.

This hotel is very chic.It reminds me of the small hotels in NYC- very trendy. It's located literally attached to 1Borneo the largest mall on the island of Borneo. Nothing's very far in Borneo, so while this is a bit "on the other side of town" it's perfect if you're there for shopping and nightlife.

The hotel's rooms are nice and priced right for the expensive city of Kota Kinabalu, however, the hotel staff are somewhat useless (although very polite and always smile) It seems like every question is extremely difficult to answer.
1Borneo is quite far from the city center so you have to plan your days around their shuttle bus or pay the expensive taxi to the mall.
I would not stay there again.
