Reviewed 28 December 2009

I booked 3 rooms for my family. The reasons why I chose this hotel is because firstly, it is quite new. Secondly, it is situated in one of the mega malls in KK. Thirdly, it is nearer to go to Mt Kinabalu compared to the city hotels.
The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, designed with a modern concept which is quite interesting. From your bed, you can see the bathroom through the glass screen. So make sure who you are sharing the room with! However, mine was opaque. The superior room is kinda small. There are hardly any space for you to move or to put extra baggage. Their supposedly king-sized bed is actually a queen-size. If you only plan to come back to sleep, then this room is worth the money. It is ideal for business travellers and not for those who want to lay back to relax. The buffet breakfast is good with quite a spread.
Parking is another problem. The hotel does not have their own car parks in the mall. So we had to pay to park each time we come back. There are only limited car parks outside the hotel and most of the time they are reserved.
The only attraction for me to stay in this hotel again would be the cleanliness and the up-keep of the hotel. Well, let's hope they can maintain..........
