“Gaya ada gaya? (Gaya got style?)”
Reviewed 29 April 2012 via mobile

Pros - good location as restaurants,banks,tourist agents, shopping mall and jetty is within walking distance. The Filipino Market is about 20 minutes walk away. Internet connection is available via LAN in the room and Wifi at the restaurant and hotel lobby. Tip top clean rooms. Hairdryer and iron are available in the room for use. Friendly hotel staffs.

Cons - Can be noisy at night due to the vehicles passing by the hotel. Stayed at the 7th floor and it's still noisy. Be careful uf you are staying at the rooms facing the shopping mall, Suria Sabah as people from the restaurant (restaurant is located at Suria Sabah) can see you. Remember to wave hello.

Reviewed 28 April 2012

we stayed for 3days, and it impressed us with the good location and clean room, it is very closed to some famous resteraunt, but a little far away from the seafood night market,since Kinabalu is not a big city, 15minutes walk way is not too long. The breakfast is just so so, the selection is less than I thought. Anyway, basing on this price and facility, I will come back again if I will stay at Kinabalu.

Room Tip: tell the reception that you want the room facing to the sea

For less than 60 USD a night you really can't complain. Location is fantastic with Suria Sabah just a hop away. There is no pool or gym but really for that price....

The room was clean and the sheets starched and clean too. TV channels rather limited though.

Breakfast was nice and on a good day having breakfast outside looking at the sea is simply relaxing.

Highly recommended for a comfortable but not luxurious stay.

Gaya exceeded my expectation. We booked a studio suite which is spacious with 2 queen beds and a nice view of the ocean and mall, perfect for a family of 5. Hotel is clean, beds are comfortable, and the lobby is big and spacious. Buffet breakfast is an added bonus; many choices and you can eat al fresco with an oceanview. The two malls right beside the hotel has everything you need, including foodcourts, supermarkets and money changers. A must do in KK is the island hopping for the beaches and coral reefs. You can easily do this thru the Jesselton Port which is just walking distance from the hotel.

Booked the hotel thru Agoda and the rate is really a bargain. Taxi from airport is RM 40.00. Everything else that you have to see in KK is just walking distance from Gaya including most malls. Hotel staffs are all courteous and friendly.

Stayed overnight after staying on the mari mariland lodge. Very comfortable rooms with great views of the harbour. Breakfast was included in the price and could be taken inside or on the balcony . Lots of choice and very tasty. Avoid using the stairs as the only way out is on the ground floor -resulting in amused looks from the bell boys !

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

Gaya Centre Hotel is a very clean hotel.The staff provided prompt and satisfying customer services - from their sales department to the front office people. My stay over there were a relaxed and hassle free experience.My kids are happy with the view from the room and also with the facilities in the room itself ( albeit being a bit smaller in size but still acceptable for us with the rate and extra cleanliness that could only be found in a 4 to 5 star hotel )

Room Tip: request for rooms with sea view , although most probably the view would be partially blocked by Sur...
