The Palace Hotel Kota Kinabalu
Ranked #36 of 92 Hotels in Kota Kinabalu
Reviewed 20 February 2012

The room was big and comfortable. Breakfast is also nice even though I didn't have much time to enjoy it. The location of the hotel is fairly central but requires taxi service to get around town and back to the hotel. I needed to get some work done, but the wireless Internet signal is not always reliable even though they have placed many routers to repeat the signal throughout the floors. I rely on good Internet access for my business so this was a drawback. It is a decent vacation hotel, however.

Room Tip: Wireless Internet signal varies from floor to floor and location.

Had stayed there for 3 days in Dec'11. The place is little bit far from the main downtown. Though there is free shuttle bus service 3 times a day. The taxi charges from the downtown to hotel is Rm15. The rooms look sparse but all essential things are available. My room ac kept on tripping. the staff attended promptly every time. Overall good place to stay if want to be away from the the main shopping area. There is bid super market just down the hotel.

excellent hotel, good value for the money paid. Rooms are modern, clean and spacious. huge selection of food during breakfast. Only 20 mins away on foot from the city. Pool facilities and gym fully equipped. Staff are very welcoming and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms on floors 4 & 5 are the best!

The only hotel in Malaysia that propagandises recycled theme successfully. They collected acidic food waste to turn into detergent for housekeeping use, no plastic use throughout, Having the one and only non smoking karaoke bar, the Glamorous and most public area are non smoking too; stress only homemade sauces and recipe in the restaurant, planted various vegetation as kitchen supplies. Must make a point to meet with the General Manager whom she is ever helpful and keen to share of all her insights.

Room Tip: Ask for Palace Suite regardless business of leisure stay.

The hotel overall was quite reasonable for a budget hotel, decent breakfast, slightly overcrowded swimming pool, staff were keen to please. Unfortunately for us our suite had an overwhelming stench of stale cigarette butts that no amount of airfreshener or airconditioning could budge, we checked out after just one night, not on our list of places to revisit.

The room was quite spacious and they even provided a king size bed. The fridge was empty but clean. Service was excellent and breakfast had a quite a broad range of food. Gym was good and well equipped. Unfortunately due to the hectic schedule my children was unable to play at the pool.

Room Tip: Ask one the is facing the two instead of the hill.

My first impression of this hotel was totally wrong. When I stepped in for the first time recently, I was impressed by its furnishing and facilities. The location is good as it's close to a shopping complex. Ideal for those who drive a car as there are ample parking spaces available.

Room Tip: Any room can do.
