Despite the bad comment on the location hotel, I decided to book this hotel at rm152/nite. Suprisingly it is not that far (ONLY 7 KM FROM CITY).
Overall it is worth it as the shopping mall is just beneath it. I stayed 3d/2n from 22-24/1/2010 and I find the hotel is really strategic as I went to Kinabalu Park, Poring and CIty tour.
We can park the car by the road side which is free instead of in the mall which is quite costly.
Hotel do provide free shuttle every 30min. check out with the receptionist and they will explain the procedure with you.
The car rental company, Bimaz Tours is very efficient and reliable. you can contact them by internet.
Kota Kinabalu is definite a better place than Langkawi.
