Reviewed 13 April 2014

Stayed in the standard room. No windows, which is always a drag. Rooms have tv's, but I think they're older than me! Tiny tv's with aweful signal.
Mosquitoes x 10 in room. The reason ror that is that cleaning personel leaves the door to the room open before new guests arrive. Nice!
Staff were just okay. Not very welcoming. More busy with their phones.
Best thing about this hotel is the location. Near everything.

Room Tip: If possible, get a room with a window.

The Hotel Traveller is a great budget hotel that is situated right in the heart of the city. Everything is in easy walking distance from this hotel, and if you have to go further afar, it is right beside a taxi rank, and the southern buses depart only 100m away. The rooms are well appointed, there is a lift which is great for a budget hotel, and the staff are welcoming and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

I actually have a residence proper in keningau so there are times business meetings drag till near midnite...then I have to lay to rest till the dawn.I found the hotel for the first time going to the hospital at queen elizabeth 2 and I had a long queue till eight at night.I have stayed in the small room and had a comfy stay.the fact they have a lift is convenient. The taxi is also next to the building 24 kfc so relieving when hunger strikes at night. Next occasions meant for the family room and even when my mum and son was coming along with me to my buisness meeting they stayed in the hotel happily even when i was busy at the office.The budget was friendly there was sundry shops nearby plus pharmacies for pensioners or the sickly elderly.if travelling with old folks this hotel is very convenient.A solace for caregivers a retreat for elders.

Room Tip: for smokers do get the room with a view

The hotel is kind of old, but what i liked most about it is its location - the restaurants, malls/money changers, night market are just a few steps away. There's also a taxi stand right next to the hotel. The room was pretty average, but it's okay given the fact that it is a budget hotel and you'll probably be outdoors the whole day, anyway. :)

I recently stayed in a single room with windows. Feel regret with what I am paying for, sometimes. The services need improvement!!

I recently stayed in a room with no windows. It was dark, stunk like dirty socks and the air felt kinda moist. We moved to a new room. It stunk worse. Maybe the rooms with windows are better though I didn't try. I don't think its the hotels fault. They are newly opened. But its an old building and the mold must just be in the walls.

All the rooms are very clean, have A/C, free wifi and TV with HBO and the hotel is in a great area and the staff are super nice. If you are allergic to mold or don't want to put up with the stink, you might want to check out the room before booking.

I would recommend the rooms with windows. It is better than some of the other hotels for the same price in the area.

This hotel just opened some time around Feb 2009. Prices are lower than others in the area. Good location. Taxi stand, shopping, and eateries nearby. I stayed here for 1 night (Rm68 for a room without window and a queen-sized bed, attached bathroom). Rooms with windows cost slightly more. Unlike other hotels (I viewed a number of rooms in budget hotels), this one is very new and clean. I had a room reserved via email.
