“Best Hotel for Anglers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2010

This Hotel is the NEAREST to the pier where all the fishing chartered boats dock, 5 minutes walk only! They can keep your things while you go out fishing. Good, clean, reasonable priced rooms. Very helpful staffs, especially Mas. Nearby many small tackle shops, eateries, bars, shopping malls and supermarts, etc. Best value for your money!

We decided to stay at this hotel after we read about its reviews here. Booked through hotel's website. Talking about location, this hotel is not far from Hyatt Kota Kinabalu. 24hours KFC and BK only 2 minutes walk from hotel. They don't serve breakfast, but was OK with us coz we could try their local cuisine at local 'kedai'.
Room was small though , but very comfy for the bathroom. Enough space for your needs.
Hotel also had free high speed internet in our room...just made our stay more comfortable.
There was a girl, name Sandra at the reception ... she has been very helpful from the beginning. When I asked where to have breakfast, she didn't just give us the direction but she brought us right in front of the 'kedai'. And when we needed to rent a car, she helped us to check with the car rental and bargain the rate too.She made all the calls for free. But it wasn't just her...all the staffs were very nice and gave Asian hospitality to us.That's why I say, they treated us as a family member.

We stayed for 2 nights to visit TAR Marine Park and Lok Kawi Wildlife Center. Great hotel with new and stylish furnitures. Perfect location (5mins walk to sunday market and night market, 10mins walk to jetty, 24h KFC and Burger King just down the road). Nice service (staff helpful to arrange trips for us), clean and comfy environment with very affordable rate.

We stayed 1 night at the hotel and honestly i must say that we were fooled by the looks of its street. the hotel was very modern, and the furniture and bathroom were very modern. The best part was that it has a lift which made everything easy especially when you're carrying a lot of luggage and staying on the 3rd floor! The location was great, we had a walk to the markets and getting food was quite easy. The next morning after check out we had to leave our things because we wanted to go to the islands before checking in at the next hotel, and the staffs we're very friendly and helpful suggested us to just leave them at the counter and keep them for us! when we came back for them, everything was there, and the staff even helped to load the things to our van. Thank you so mush and will recommend the hotel to anyone going to KK.

It is located conveniently inside the city. Taxi could shuttle you to your destination at a few ringgits cost. They cont offer food that is even a plus, since you will be force to look for food at nearby kopitiam or hawker food, which is located just a couple of blocks away. Rooms are decently clean, 2 bottled water per room and a flat screen tv. a good 3 star hotel in the heart of KK

Surely the best hotel for its price in KK. We found this hotel after walking around for a while after deciding to move on from Hotel Holiday. The room only cost 98 Ringits, less than the Best Western and such, and just a little more expensive though much more tasteful than Hotel Holiday. I think the place is so cheap as it is still relatively new.
The lobby and rooms have an air of modernity. The room is very comfy (though not that large if you have the basic) and clean with a large plasma TV and safe. The bed was comfy and the décor was nice. The bathroom is excellent, with a large glass shower with a big rainforest showerhead (a great treat after walking in the jungle or blazing heat of the town).
I’d recommend taking a room on the third floor as our original room on the 1st floor had a walkway outside the window.
The reception staff were a little slow and got confused, but this may be because the place is new.
The hotel is near to the markets, a few restaurants and malls. KK isn’t that big so I don’t think location is that much of an issue in the town. The block that the hotel is in itself isn’t great and when you walk along the road outside you may notice a couple cockroaches and rubbish bins although its located in a good location and is just round the corner from KFC and a couple of decent bars
All in all, the hotel was a great find and at a very reasonable rate.
