the hotel overall is new, the bedding and linen not much to complaint about. Overall hotel is average in quality and good in location as 500m away is a very decent shopping mall. Food wise is not a problem at all, you can get almost any food you would like for your day to day meal.

Room Tip: all room comes with windows , so claim the reception, however please confirm them before make reservation.

This hotel is really conveniently located. I booked it from Agoda, Cost only RM129 per night, with breakfast for 2. During booking, i was informed that it's city view, from floor 5-8th, It was a pleasant surprise when i got the sea view on the 12th floor. The staff is friendly and helpful. Most importantly the hotel is conveniently located, and from the hotel, one can virtually walk to most of the KK City Center.

First,just opposite hotel, is a shopping center, called Suria Sabah, can easily find food in the food court located on the 3rd level (delicous too) and one can easily buy anything as there are Guardian, Watson, groceries stores in there. Within walking distance is the South Sea Sanctuary Spa, one of the award winning spas in KK. Also on the way to the spa, one can walk pass by a few local shops, that also sells some local products such as their local tenom coffee,sea bird nest, amplang (their fish crackers) at much more reasonable price, than the tourist centers. The Sunday Gaya street market (pearls, sourvenirs,shirts, etc) is also a short distance from the hotel. The hotel is also near the night market, the Filipino market, the handycraft market and central market with plenty of seafood to eat. However, the souvenir items and coffee etc as mention above from these centers/markets is almost 50%-100% more from the shops mention above. So if really want to buy from them, need to bargain very hard..

Also if one wants to go snorkeling or island hoppings, this hotel is also just a short walking distance from the Jesselton Point Ferry Terminal. From this hotel, i proceeded to another resort near Kinabalu Park at Kundasang.Gaya Center Hotel is very near the bus/van terminal for interstate transfer. Within a short walking distance(however, if have heavy luggage, may consider taxi, RM12), one can reach Padang Merdeka to take the shared van/bus to other parts of Sabah, such as Ranau and Kundasang. Our trip to Kundasang in the share van cost RM20/person for two hours trip.

In short, if one wants to explore KK city center, where one can enjoy the quite reasonably price seafood, sun, sea, sand, spa and shopping all within walking distance, this is the right place to stay. As most of the touristy area is within walking distance, one can save alot on taxi fares, which the taxi services don't use meter,so no need to bargain for the fares etc.. save the effort and money by staying here.

Room Tip: The sea view is quite nice, but more expensive rate....but one can also enjoy the seaview from the cafe located on 4th floor...

Not very helpful staff with poor English. Traffic noise is quite loud in room due to the open corner
position of the hotel. Breakfast was very, very poor. Room size was good. TV did not have any movie channel. Overall the hotel was quite clean. The one thing in favour of this hotel is position
with shopping centres back & front of hotel. Another shopping centre can be found opposite the
day markets (a short walk from hotel) with a huge supermarket. There is no swimming pool.

Room Tip: hotel is situated on a very open corner block, a lot of traffic noise is herd in rooms
