I travelled with a group of 11 students and we stayed on a Saturday and Sunday night. We did not experience any noise from the clubs in the area. There was the ocassional song that played a little louder, but I actually thought this hotel was quieter than staying in the city as there was no traffic noise.

It is only a short walk into town - it took us about 15 mins to reach the Centre Point shopping centre. There are a few cafes around for breakfast, but the Manja cafe beside the hotel has some cheap eats (most things under RM15) and they do an Asian breakfast. There are the only place open early. There is also a convience store open 24hrs beside the hotel.

Rooms were nice and new and a bargain price. I would stay here again.

We stayed 3 nights.The room was lovely and very contemporary. We had TV,A/C and fridge.The bathroom was spacious with plenty of hot water.The only downside was the noise outside from the bars and clubs.It is only 10 mins walk to the town,just ask for directions as a bit tricky to find - look for some steps leading down - otherwise you'll be walking round in circles!

This hotel was a nice surprise. It's cheap 100RM a night, the rooms are modern and lovely, we had floor to ceiling windows, there is free wifi. It's in an area called Times Square where it seems the well heeled youth of KK go out.
We went out here one night - which was fun, and a nice alternative to KK centre, but it was very expensive to have booze.
The rooms were quiet the shower was huge and overall we were impressed. There is no breakfast included, but there is a nice breakfast place downstairs. Walking to the town centre takes 10 -15 minutes, which we quite enjoyed, but would be a pain with children. It's a decent option and good value for money if you can't get in Eden 54...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2009

On my recent trip to Kota Kinabalu i found a gem of a hotel and i would like to share my find as i can't see any mention of it anywhere.

Called the Manja Hotel and located in KK Times Square is is just outside of the city but you can walk there from town, its just a bit hot. Benefit - no noise, better value, large rooms. Downside - a bit of a walk or £3.00 taxi ride to central KK. For me the benefit out weighed the downside as i was diving all day everyday so i didn't need to be in KK City all the time.

Manja is a small boutique hotel with a good local, chinese, malay and Italian restaurant within the KK Times Square complex. Extremely clean, safe, comfortable and at £20.00 per night for two people in a deluxe room, en-suite, satellite TV, air-con, really great value for money. Gem of a find - highly recommended.
