“Great family room and handy location in KK”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We stayed here two nights at the start and end of our trip to Sabah. 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful arranging taxis etc. We had a family room - 1 king sized and 1 king single bed with an extra bed brought in. The room was large so having the extra bed was no issue. We paid a weekend rate of RM218 which was very reasonable for a room of that size in KK.

The A/C was quiet and the shower was great, the rooms was spotless and the blackout blinds were a real bonus when wanting to sleep beyond 5:30am! The big bonus for me were the pillows! They were not the heavy hard foam pillows so many places have in Malaysia (no neck ache!!).

There is no breakfast included in the hotel however there are loads of places to eat around (we were in Malaysia for the start of Ramadan so there were fewer restaurants open during the day than normal).

Suria Sabah and the markets on the water are less than 10 mins walk away.

We'd definitely stay here again! Thanks

The wifi on our floor (2) was very strong!

Compared to other hotels at this price range, I can say that it's really worth it. The rooms are not too small, it was clean, the aircond worked well during our stay, the bathroom was in very satisfactory level for me, the towels and floor mat were perfect, at least at this price they don't give you yellowish recycled towels. The service was very good, as every time we called for something from the room such as extra hangers, hairdryer, etc. they send it very fast and they were very helpful with any enquiries we had. The setbacks are just the location, I mean.. of course you don't open your curtain to see a sunset sea view or garden (it was just old buildings and you immediately feel like the ghetto of hong kong).. and the pavement outside/in front of the hotel is, honestly quite dirty.. but then again, the hotel doesn't own the pavement and the back view, it's just an entity by itself (hotel lot). But the plus point, it is also the convenience of having everything within walking distance from the hotel (food, public transport, shopping, landmarks, etc) Final say, I wouldn't mind being a repeat customer. Cheers!

First I wasn't expecting much with the price that I paid for the room, but once I enter the room, it was spacious and it have everything that we need. The location of the hotel is strategic but it's difficult to find parking space during the day.
