Our usual Kota Kinabalu hotel was full so we hunted around for another good budget hotel. For us, this means a clean, quiet room with everything working and air con, but we're not after anything else, like freshly painted walls, colour coordination, throw pillows etc!
City Park hotel is a little more expensive than our usual but the place is in a slightly better state of repair. Everything worked and was clean. The aircon was super quiet and the electric shower worked fine.
The staff were friendly and helpful including quick and effective discussions by emial prior to arriving. On arrival, they phoned the owner for information on tours for us. However, not all staff speak good English and occassionally this caused some inconvenience.
There is free wifi good enough for skype calls in the reception (and on the road outside!) but not in most of the rooms. There is also a computer in the reception for guests to use.
The location is great. Any hotel in the centre of Kota Kinabalu is a short walk or drive from anything in the town.
Note: They do not take cards! Cash only. There are several ATMs about a 5 min walk away.
