“Great value for a short stay.”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Booked here for 1 night online for a cheap rate. The room was small, as you would expect but was very clean, modern and stylish. Had all of the amenities you would expect from this sort of hotel, and the shower was strong and well sized.

WiFi signal and speed was good enough.

Storage space was non-existent but for our 1 night purposes this didn't matter.

Location was excellent, just 5 mins from the harbour.

Staff friendly and helpful, booked us an airport taxi and helped us find our way around.

Ideal for a short stay.

Convenient place. It's located at Segama. You can walk 5 minutes to seafood stall, wisma merdeka, suria sabah and take 10 minutes to jeselton point. Great staff and comfortable room. Big room but there's no great view because it's like a half of shop lot they take and renovated it to hotel. Anyway all advisor travellers, I recommended this place.
Improvement: WiFi should be consider for guests priority, because it's too slow to use it. Sometimes the staff friendly and sometimes times they don't.

My friends and I spent 4 nights there. Due to the flight delay, we arrived at 3:00 am, what an odd time! But we were warmly welcomed by the front-desk receptionist. We had trouble with getting hot water for shower, but the mantainance-man was there to show us how to manipulate with the tap. We requested a double room and a twin-share room which were adjecent. The twin-share room was small but very clean and well kept. The shampoo and soap were supplied every day. Big TV set on the wall with several Chinese Phoenix Channel.
Gook Location! 5-min walk east to Jalan Gaya, 5-min west to the coast and central market, and 10-15 min walk to Jelseton Point Jetty.
Our flight was delayed and the trip to Pulau Tiga was cancelled due to the weather. The stay in 1 City was the only comforting thing in KK. Highly recommended. During Hazi Raya festival, it was full house every night.

We stayed at this hotel for one night. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were bottles of water and tea facilities in room. The room was clean and had satellite TV and wi fi.

The hotel is very centrally located and for the price we thought it was great value for money.

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of weeks. The location is good, everything is walkable. We had several different rooms due to coming and going and all were fine. The rooms are of a decent size, lighting is good and windows are large. Beds and pillows are comfortable. Bathrooms work. We spent a couple of nights in an upgraded room, which offered more space but wasn't really worth the extra money. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The only downside of this hotel is that, on the lower floors, people can see into your room as they walk by along a balcony. There's not much foot traffic but enough that you need to remain clothed. Also, I'd recommend rooms on the street side, not the mall side. They're lighter. And, book online through their website. It's cheaper. You'll be charged more for any nights not booked online, even if you're just extending your time.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side are lighter.
