“The worst hotel experience in malaysia”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Wifi connection is only available in the lobby, which is really disappointing. Our room's windows could not be locked so it was pretty insecure. Overall, please avoid this hotel or you will definitely regret your stay in KK.

We go sabah on Chinese new year. Although many store were closed but it's still a busy city. Small hotel, but nice peoples. Located near the waterfront,night market and surrounded by malls. Food stalls are everywhere. Easy to go anywhere. Nice!

August 2013 was the fourth time I stayed here since 2007 primarily for its location. Situated in Sinsuran Complex you cant find a more central location in KK for less than RM 100. The Hotel is not luxurious but clean with working plumbing and even a jug for making Tea or Coffee on the room. Sadly no longer an option for Breakfast at the associated D`Borneo, as their Cafe is closed. Also the lack of an elevator will keep you fit.
Taxis are waiting just outside the Seri Borneo. Some of Borneos most colourful Markets are within a few minutes walk except the Sunday Market at Jln. Gaya, which is some distance from here.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back as this area has Night Markets all over the area and KK is a noisy pla...

Don't expect too much from this hotel, but if you have to spend a few days in KK, it's a good location and the staff is friendly, the room clean. This is a good hotel, maybe a little bit too expensive for what it is. They clean the room when you stay more than 1 night.

this hotel is the worst hotel ever..we arrived in KK at 10pm and give the receptionist a call to inform our arrival..they told us that our booking is not in the system because we check in very late, They had canceled our booking without informing us. Our room for 4 person was given to other guests. And no room is provided for us..I would not recommended this hotel because of the very poor service and rude staffs.

Stayed for 2 nights and we opted for the deluxe room, comfy beds, we love the extra pillows and the water heater works properly although it took quite a while to warm up. No elevator though, we got a room at the 3rd floor but to be honest, it is actually the fourth floor, we counted. Just imagine, to carry the luggage was a bit hellish for us, no assistance rendered at all. Anyway, location wise, its excellent!

We arrived midnight here. Check-in process was easy and we get a room on the 2nd floor. The rooms are clean although a little cramped. towels are provided and the air conditioning and hot water to function properly. The location is very strategic, close to shopping centers such as warisan square, center point sabah and waterfront area. conclusion this hotel is worth considering for those of you who are looking for a clean place to stay with a good location and low cost.
