KK has some huge waterfront hotels which amount to three times the price of The Palace. Don't bother. Stay closer to the Uni at the new hotels there. For town hotels, most are either too posh or too shabby. This is middle of the road. The good side first - the meals area looks out over the pool to the rainforest behind. This is great. Go for a room facing the hill. Any with city views are noisy and I mean noisy! The hige exhausts from the shopping complex and the compressor noise from the individual air cons situated outside each room makes this hotel a noise phobic's nightmare. Breakfast was variable with "off" laksa sauce. But I had the runs from the afternoon tea at the Hyatt. I must say that was a magnificent affair with the best sweets ever - local coffee from Tenom and Sabah tea, mud cake made from local cacao are the best! Don't overdo it. Back to The Palace - looks great on the hill - inside is OK, functional, comfortable.
