“If you need wifi give this one a miss”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Comfortable rooms in a good location, but the wifi was worse than useless. I had to go to the local Le Meridien hotel lobby to check my emails and when you've paid for a hotel with wifi it is rather annoying to have such inconvenience.
I stayed for 4 days/nights and the wifi was consistently bad. Over 90% of the time pages timed out. Luckily I have a Malaysian SIM with data so could use my phone for urgent messages. It is a good job!
Next time I would spend more money and just stay at the Meridien. I like it when things work.
The breakfast selection was uninspiring, but the view from the restaurant was beautiful.
If you're looking for somewhere affordable in a reasonable location downtown then this hotel is an option, but if you need connectivity try elsewhere.

Ten of our family members visited KK June 18 to 21, 2014. The room assigned to me (and my wife) was spacious and clean. I have excellent view of both the water front and Mount Kinabalu. Staffs are friendly and the breakfast is reasonably good. Best of all is the location of the hotel. There are many eateries and several nice seafood restaurants in the neighborhood within walking distance. However, the hotel lobby is rather small.

spacious room, nice view, large beds, everything in the bathroom works !

the buffet breakfast was surprisingly good too...

...and only 10 mins to the airport.

...and Kinabalu is clearly visible from the bedroom window - priceless !

Rooms are spacious and well furnished. Free wifi available

Good view from the breakfast area. Buffet selection is good as well.

However some training rooms are rather uncomfortable and snacks served were poor.

Basic hotel. Perfect for those travelling on business.

Although I stayed only for a night but room was good, spacious, clean. Food was decent although I am vegetarian they were kind enough to help us with the food requirement. Also for the breakfast I had 7am flight so they packed breakfast and gave which was really nice. Location is also good next to sea area, shipping place. Worth considering if you want to stay in Kota kinabalu for few days.

Stayed at this hotel once in December 2013 for 2 nights. If I am not mistaken, the room that I stayed was Superior Room. My comments are as follows:
1) Hotel staffs were very kind and helpful
2) The room was very clean and I felt like home
3) The room size is just nice, not to big and not too small
4) The room has an excellent sea view
5) The Air Cond was cooling
6) The bathroom was very clean
7) I enjoyed taking shower because it has very high pressure rain shower. The bathroom has a glass wall. So, I enjoyed the sea view while taking shower.
8) The bed and pillows are of good quality and hence I had a very comfortable sleep
9) More importantly, the buffet breakfast is wide-spread and excellent!
10) Pilipino market and night market are just walking distance from the hotel

Among all of the hotels that I have stayed so far, this is the best one :)

Our stay at Klagan Hotel was very nice. Quite clean, nice room (with relax chair) and we were lucky to have half sea view even though we only paid for city view. Staff was very nice and helpful.
The breakfast (at the top floor with a very nice sea view) is a quite big buffett, where both asians and westerners will find a wide variety (they had cheese, maple sirup and a waffle/egg station).
Location is good, many restaurants and shops around, close to the pier with markets and more restaurants.

Would definitely go there again!
