“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 21 December 2012

Situated in the heart of the city- walking distance to shopping malls, Gaya street, restaurants etc

Large spacious room with very comfortable bed. Good sized bathroom with rain shower and steam bath.

Excellent buffet breakfast, good food at the Asian restaurant.

Staff were very polite, friendly and helpful.

Has a huge spa that takes up the fifth floor with very reasonable prices and excellent massage therapist.

We recently stayed for 3 nights on the 11th floor. Spacious room, very comfortable beds and an impressive rain shower which I liked very much. Facilities in the room are also good, mostly modern and brand new considering it's a new hotel. The serve a very good buffet breakfast. The staff are helpful and friendly too. The hotel car park within the same hotel building is a plus point for travelers like myself, who tend to rent a car during my stay in Kota Kinabalu. Well located too, within walking distance to banks, shopping areas and eating areas. Overall, it's a good hotel with a reasonable price and I would certainly recommend this to others. Just hope the management can maintain the facilities and service over the years.

Impressive room with the design. A very comfortable bed and I would say a good variety selection for breakfast. I enjoyed my stay there.

Really not bad for a new hotel with probably offer good reasonable room rate.

Stayed for a night last week, took the Deluxe Room. Was pretty amazed by the room, compatible with Le Meridien Hotel Kota Kinabalu. Water Pressure in bathroom is good. Comfortable bed & pillow. Breakfast was OK, too crowded as the restaurant is too small. Could skip breakfast after all, there are plenty to eat just at your door step. Location: superb!

Room Tip: Higher floor, could see Kota Kinabalu City View from your room.

We stayed here for 2 nights to recover from a very long journey. This was a good choice for us. We had a corner room which was lovely & quiet which was just what we needed. Breakfast was good. The pool area is pretty small & there's only 3 sunbeds so this is not a place to stay for sunbathing. We didn't need this as we went to the jetty & took a boat accross to Sapi which was so easy to do.
One thing I would mention is the hotel do not do the happy hour which they advertise on their website & the outside of the hotel. However, the barman recommended BB Cafe which is located just along the road at the back of the hotel. We went there both evenings as they have live music & do great margueritas at half price you pay at the harbourside bars. We ordered food from the Thai restuarant in the same area & they served us at BB Cafe.
The staff were very friendly & helpful!

Room Tip: Our corner room was very quiet!
