Hotel Eden54
Ranked #3 of 92 Hotels in Kota Kinabalu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Hotel Eden54 is exactly what you need in KK, very clean hotel with friendly staff, good rooms with hot showers and comfortable beds. It is next door to a good supermarket which has everything you could possibly need. It is also less than a 5 minute walk to the Sunday market, several good restaurants and a huge shopping mall.

We were in KK to climb Mount Kinabalu, we booked 4 nights at the hotel so we could leave some bags there whilst we did the climb. It is a very safe and secure option.

It is also on a very quiet road compared to some of the other busy roads.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I think we had the biggest room available for 2 people and it was very nice.

We stayed at Hotel Eden 54 twice, once before leaving to go diving at Mabul (Sipadan), and again on our return to Kota Kinabalu. We loved the place. It has a great location, walking distance to lots of the sites and activities. It has a good kitchen area for preparing food or snacks and is right next door to a great produce market and a grocery store. We found the staff fabulous, always helpful, informative and had lots of suggestions that allowed us to make the most of our time in Kota Kinabalu. A very easy place to give our highest recommendation it.
I should also note that during our first stay, we had to change rooms but they managed that with very little fuss or bother. They also allowed us to leave some things in storage while we were gone for a week to Mabul, and had our left bag, and laundry ready for us when we returned. Awesome service.

The hotel is fairly new / newly renovated and the rooms are nice and modern. The rooms are large enough to move around in and the toilets clean and spacious. Everything you would expect from a budget hotel and worth the money paid.

Location-wise, it is closest to the jetty and about a 10-12 minute walk to the waterfront. Not the most centrally located hotel but not cut-off either. It's a pleasant walk after all.

We were a family of 6 + toddler and we booked the family room (2 queen beds) + double (compact D) and this was sufficient for our needs.

Pros
- Fantastic Location - 15 mins drive to airport, 5 mins walk to Sabah Tourism Board, 5 minutes walk to a Suria Sabah shopping centre, 24 hours gourmet grocers just beside the hotel.
- Lovely owners who would greet you at the entrance upon your arrival
- Clean and cozy hotel
- Great price!

Cons
- The hotel check in is located on the 2nd floor. I didn't see a lift, so not really convenient for those on wheelchair, or just climbed Mount KK.
- There is no fridge in the room, but there is a fridge located in the lobby, so not a big problem.

Located on the first floor, this little hotel is a budget hotel conveniently located very near two shopping centres (Wisma Merdeka and Suria Sabah), around 5-10min comfortable walk away.

Check in was quick as it was not busy (not that many rooms here). Room look and feel homey to us. Nothing fantastic but it is clean. Free wifi (but slow) available. Comfy mattress and pillows. Air conditioning is good, with a ceiling fan if one wants an extra breeze. Very thoughful of the hotel management (provided us the right number of towels and bottled drinking water each day). Hotel is a bit old though. Towels are old with stain.

Shared fridge outside the room.

A convenient store/supermarket just next to it. An excellent italian restaurant called Little Italy, 5-10min walk away.

Cool and stylish. Warm and inviting. Serene and friendly. All these phrases epitomise Ling and her top class accommodation. All the benefits of a hostel with the class of a boutique hotel. Kitchenette and common space, computer and printer, as well as kettle and WiFi in your room. While we were there the amazingly efficient and business like Ling organised a trip for us, got our laundry done, let us make international phone calls when our debit card got blocked, told us the best place to buy pearls (and it's much better than the market! ), and was gracious with us throughout. She has stamps and phone cards and anticipates your every need. Next to the hotel is Tong Hing supermarket which has a great range of international food, fresh fruits, wine, a cafe and bakery. HSBC with an array of ATMs is on the next corner. You can walk to the waterfront easily.

Room Tip: We booked ahead and still got the last room. We met many people who had tried more than once to get...

Don't waste your money or time looking elsewhere in Kota Kinabalu. The lady that runs this hotel makes the stay as enjoyable as you could ask for. She is efficient and prompt in responding to reservation requests and goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. She takes all of your needs and desires into consideration and goes out of her way to please. Her recommendation for local food was wonderful The place is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and provides all of the comforts you need for a wonderful stay and she does it for a very reasonable price. There is no reason this hotel isn't number 1 on Trip Advisor for KK. Do yourself a favor if you find yourself in Kota Kinabalu and stay at the Eden54, you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: The rooms with windows on the front of the hotel were very nice!
