“Beautiful Boutique”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Having stayed in most other hotels in Kota Kinabalu, this really is the best value for money.The staff are extremely courteous, and the location being at the edge of the city is convenient to all KK has got to offer.
The large room I was staying was beautifully decorated, well appointed, with large bathroom, was felt like a real home from home.
It has its own dedicated carparking spaces, particularly convenient, as we hired a car and able to travel widely in the area.
A particular favourite was the local cuisines served up by the hotel's dedicated restaurant, yes, we will definitely be back.
The intimacy and friendliness of the staff makes this a great family hotel.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms feels like that of a 6 star resort.

I have been visiting Kota Kinabalu for 20 years and have just discovered a real gem, Zara's boutique hotel. It is located just outside the busy City Centre across from the excellent Sutra Harbour and all it facilities. The hotel has benefits from friendly staff that made our stay an absolute delight. The room rates are very competitive and the one I was staying in was extremely spacious and well appointed, but best of all was the DePatio restaurant where we enjoyed the chef's interpretation of Malaysia's best food!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the supersize rooms !

My 5 weekends in KK were spent in this hotel which offerred clean rooms and excellent service. The staff were very polite all the time and promptly attended to our various requests
One of the best things that we enjoyed is the fabulous CHinese meals which was just 10 shop lots away. While the location was away from the city centre, it suited us as it was close to the airport and transportation was available quickly - the call cabs were just 5 mins away
I would recommend this hotel to travellers who are looking for a good deal as I personally had a good stay for the 5 weekends that I put up here

Room Tip: ASk for the rooms which face Mt Kinabalu - it is just glorious to wake up in the morning and face th...

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The room was spacious and the decorating was really nice. Also, I had no problem to park my car coz it was many parking there. It was very convenient there coz there were many different kind of shop next to the hotel , such as De patio which is the hotel's cafe , malay and chinese restaurants , seven eleven , and so on. The most pleasant thing was that the staff were very courteous and helpful. I was very happy with my stay there and would definitely come back again !

First of all the location is great, being in the city centre. Even though it is situated in the city centre, it is still quiet and peaceful which allows you to have a good night's rest. The rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. Bathroom is extremely clean and modern and storage space for luggage and clothes is of good size. The hotel is situated near many restaurants selling traditional malaysian food, indian food, western food and a convenience store. We ate at 'De patio' (right next to our hotel) a few nights and the food and service was great. The views are lovely overlooking the golf course of sutera harbour resort, the resort itself and the sea. Last but not least, the staff were pleasant and helpful who welcomed us nicely when we arrived. My friends and I were very happy with our stay and would definitely come back.

Stayed for 2 days at 3rd floor.The hotel is abt 10-15 minutes drive to Phillipine's market. Very easy to find, lots of open parking lots. Massage & facial service available till 8pm.

The room was ok. Free wifi but little slow. The toilet was clean but it might get wet because it is not fully glass covered.

I like the fact that it is easy if u are hungry and u are lazy to drive and walk long distance, there are rows of local restaurants and fresh seafood for u to pick - and it is just downstairs!

Just make sure u remind the frontdesk to ensure housekeepers tidy up ur room if u stay more than 1day. Mine was not cleaned.

On my last stay at the hotel, i took a cab to town centre that cost me rm15.

My overall experience was ok. Stafc was good. Maybe the hotel should consider unifi for business travellers convenience.
