We stayed here for a total of 5 nights with a Mount Kinabalu trip in the middle. The rooms matched the pictures and were quite large, the bathrooms had amazing rain showers too. They provide some tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms and some small toiletries. The location is great, right on Gaya street where there are lots of convenience stores, cafes and bak kuh teh restaurants (our favourite restaurant was the chicken rice place at the start of Gaya street). It is a very close 10 min walk to the Jetty to take you to the marine park too. The Filipino Market was about 15 - 20 mins walk.
Some reviews mention lack of WIFI in some rooms but the two rooms we stayed in had strong WIFI connection (2nd floor near the lifts) but it was rather slow. The TV does not have many channels and there are movies on demand which require payment. The service was quite good but they never had enough money to exchange even though they posted their rates on a TV in the lobby. We also were given a recommendation by a front desk person to go to a massage place on Gaya street called De Borneo which was the worst massage I've ever had in my life. Some of the other guests were very noisy in the morning so you may need to be prepared to be woken up unexpectedly.
Overall I would stay here again if I didn't use the room too much as it was great value and in a good location.
