“Best Hotel in KK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

Found this hotel via Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet and booked 1 night at the very start of our trip. From the moment we walked in it was clear we had discovered a great hotel. The lady on reception was just excellent, so kind, helpful and informative. We were blown away by the fact that nothing seemed too much for her and she bent over backwards to help us out.
Rooms were great, comfortable, clean and very good value for money. Facilities like a fridge and communal kitchen were genius and they really had thought of everything.
We ended up staying a few nights here during our trip and although it wasn't the cheapest place it was so worth it for the help and friendliness of the staff.
If you arrive in KK book a room here, any advice you need for your stay will be taken care of and you will have a wonderful experience!

Was introduced to this hotel by a family friend and decided to check this hotel reviews in TA.
This was our third visits to KK since 2010 and decided to try out this hotel instead.
Excellent location, walking distance to Suria Sabah shopping mall took less than 5 mins each day. Lots of nearby local eatery places, downstairs supermart is well stocked and very convenient. We visited Tunku A.Rahman park again and our little girl enjoyed every minute of it.
Friendly service from the hotel and the public lounge area is a plus+
Would love to come back.

My boyfriend and I stayed here a couple of times - using it as our base between tours in KK, and experienced nothing but amazing service each time. Ling Ling is the best and so helpful- feel free to ask her anything!
The rooms are lovely, everything is really clean and refreshed daily. The hotel is in the best location in a quieter street, but just one walk into the hustle & fish markets etc.
We wanted to stay there another night it was so good, but they were booked out. Not only did Ling Ling & Alfred (owner) spend 15mins calling every other hotel in KK to find a room for us, when they eventually did Alfred drove us there and dropped us off himself!
Stay here, swim at the other resorts pools and you'll be set.

We only spent one night here - arrived late and left early. The check in was easy and the room was perfect. Had the modern conveniences you need - TV, kettle , Wifi. They arranged for a Taxi at around 4.30 the next morning. the wake up call was on time. Excellent quality hotel with very friendly staff

We used Eden54 as our base when holidaying in Borneo - 5 nights spread over two and a half weeks. We had four different rooms all of which were impeccably presented. The hotel staff were extraordinarily helpful, sorting out washing for us whilst we were away and storing kit that we didn't need for particular trips. A much better service than you will get in a big hotel and at a fraction of the cost. The hotel itself is superbly located just to the north of the city centre. Use it before the secret gets out!

Tucked behind the new shopping mall suria sabah, and walking distance to jesselton jetty. It is located in the " chinatown " of the town and walking distance to gaya strt.

The hotel has a supermarket beside it and a small shop beside it selling some simple dishes to. Opposite of signal hill observatory.

Good-friendly stuff, give a personal touch at lending towels to guest to go for outdoor activities. Good location. Have basic toiletries like towel soap and value for money. Clean and neat.


Bad-no shuttle bus to centre point mall, the rooms and reception located on second floor hence beware if you have heavy luggage or having walking difficulties. No breakfast provided but not a big problem.

I recently spent two nights at Hotel Eden54 and I had a spectacular time. First, the front desk staff were incredible. They were very helpful with moving around my last minute plans and gave great advice for activities to do during the day. They even booked my daytrips for me and arranged cabs at rates below what I would have paid if I booked by myself.

The rooms were basic but have all of the necessities and are immaculately clean. I even ended up in one of the "no window" rooms and found it cozy. I didn't come to KK to spend time hanging out in my room. The free wifi was a plus.

It's in a central location within KK and not too far from the new mall, the night markets or the Jetty. Most places are an easy 5-15 minute walk. There is also a grocery store downstairs that has all of the necessities.

Overall this place was a great value and I would stay there again. The front desk staff truly made the stay memorable.
