Just checked out of a 4 day-3 night stay at Eden54. We booked the king studio. We decided on the place after reading the rave reviews on TripAdvisor. The place is conveniently located on Gaya street with a supermarket on one side and a shop selling fresh fruits and juices on the other side. And just five minutes walk across the road is the newest mall Suria Sabah.

This past week, there was also a Christmas fair on Gaya street!

After hearing so much about Ling Ling I was going to be disappointed if I didn't get to meet her! I was not disappointed and she was helpful in pointing out things to do and places to go for food etc. When I told her she was famous on TripAdvisor, she simply smiled shyly and pointed St the TripAdvisor awards the place has won in the past two years. I'm sure the 2014 award will not be far off given their warm hospitality!

Based on all the wonderful reviews on trip advisor, we booked the hotel for a short holiday in KK. And we were not disappointed. The welcome was warm and the room was great. Location is really good. Supermarkets nearby to get whatever you want and lots of food joints on Gaya Street not more than a few minutes walk away. Mall just a few minutes walk. Hotel manager is as good as everyone makes her out to be . She can arrange most things for you. Really can't go wrong with this great value hotel.

The hotel is located in the center, easy to access.

Staff: helpful and friendly. They provided the info we inquired for.

Room: Clean and basic. However, the corridor carpet is smelly which deteriorates the quality in a whole.

Cost: Value for money

Since this is my first trip to Kota Kinabalu, I browsed for many budget hotels and finally selected this hotel. After I booked this hotel, I had other suggestions from others but my hunches told me to keep this selection...glad I did.

This hotel is situated at the heart of town and is well maintained. My friends and I stayed in the family room with 2 queen sized beds which are clean and comfortable for a reasonable price. We had fun enjoying the set up in the hotel area as it was nicely decorated. The management did a good job making it cosy and comfortable.
The staffs are very helpful and especially Rosanne who was very nice and accommodating as we were quite "cheeky" but not "destructive".

You can take a 5-minutes walk to the upmarket shopping mall, walk along Jalan Gaya (same street as the hotel) to many delicious food outlets. The Sunday market is also another 5-minutes walk from the hotel.
I strongly recommend this hotel to any travellers who are planning to stay in Kota Kinabalu.

On my last 2 trips to KK, I made sure that I stayed at Eden54 as this hotel is in the heart of KK and is close to the financial facilities. There is a convenience store downstairs and even a few Kopitiam shops. Just behind the hotel there is a Japanese restaurant and you will be amazed with the choise of Italian, French and local cusines. The seafront is not too far off and you can have a huge choise of Malay seafood stalls. But I must compliment Ling Ling and her team who made my last stay a pleasant one. The next trip to KK will surely be Eden54.

I stayed at Hotel Eden54 for 5 days recently - mainly as a resting point for doing the 2-day hike up beautiful Mt Kinabalu. I had read the superb reviews for the hotel and the recommendation from Lonely Planet, and I can say without a doubt that this hotel deserves all the credit it receives.

It looks modest from the outside, but as soon as you arrive and are welcomed by Ling-Ling the hotel should be rated 5-star. The rooms are immaculate (I had a studio room with ensuite bathroom), clean, modern, colourful - and cool (air-con was a must for this time of year). Its location in Kota Kinabalu makes it within walking distance of everything important, plus having a supermarket next door is very handy - although don't be fooled into having breakfast at the supermarket cafe(not good!), head to the OldTown White Coffee a few blocks down, half the price twice as good.

Cannot endorse Ling-Ling's service enough - she is polite, friendly, welcoming, informative, and nothing is too much trouble for her. Laundry is easy to organise and cheap, and if you need any ideas, prices, taxis, or information about Sabah - she's exactly who to ask.

Don't overlook this hotel - it's outstanding and I hope other hotels in KK aspire to the service and standards at Eden54.

Room Tip: Get a window room if you're staying for more than a few nights.
