Reviewed 5 May 2013

Nice hotel. Free airport drop off and pick up. 2-3 mins drive from KK Terminal 2 (Air Asia). We made a last minute booking over the phone, and were able to get a nice aircon room. Room and bathroom was clean. Friendly staff. Good food courts nearby.

We stayed 3 nights here. The hotel rooms are clean and spacious. Bacis amenities provided such as water heater, towels, drinking water and most importantly the Wifi is working well in the ROOM. 30mins walk to the famous Tanjung Aru beach and 10mins drive to Terminal2 (free shuttle from the hotel) . There are a lot of local restaurants around the hotel.

We choosed to crash on this place before the notorious Airasia morning flight to Honkong. The hotel is conviniently located 8mins walk from the Airasia terminal, but no wories they have free airport transfer that works both ways.
The hotell staff were very friendly and helpfull. Room was large and veary clean, I was quite suprised actualy when I saw the room, very good for 1 star hotel!

The area where the hotel is located is a nice place to hang out for 1 day, there is a very good chinese restaurant near by with cheapest Tiger beer in town (4RM/can). And very good foot massage joint with super friendly staff.

Overal I would go here again. The place and area is nicer that KK downtown, prices are cheaper and airport is close by. If your doing the Mt. Kinabalu climb and have to stay in town for 1 to 2 nights this is the best place to do it.

Pros:
+ Friendly staff
+ Excelent room quality/value
+ FREE airport pickup/transfer service (just say when to reception)
+ nice quiet area to hang out for day or two
+ Prices in the area are MUCH cheaper than in downtown KK

Cons:
- far away from Downtown. (Taxi to KK downtown 20RM one way)

Room Tip: IF you are not keen to walk stairs ask a room from 1st or second floor ;)

RM 98 / night for a queen bedroom. They promised to pick me up at Kota Kinabalu International Airport AirAsia Terminal by 10PM. But they only be there by 10.30PM, after I made a 2nd and 3rd follow up call. For info, the hotel just less 5 minutes from Terminal 2.

The reception service inefficient. Carol, the reception lady wrongly give my room to other guest. Hotel staff need to ask that guest to return back room key and give it to me.

Then I proceed to my room. A chinese staff that pick me up at airport help me carry my luggage since Goldenhill got no lift.

My room 206, just an average room in term of space, cleanliness and amenities. 2 complimentary bottled water, LCD tv with in movie channel, bathroom slippers and good AC. Queen bed is comfortable enough.

However, water heater totally not working. Water really cold.

Then, almost midnight, receptionist call me and said that they wrongly give balance money to me. She give me calls twice, insist me to go to reception and give the balance money to her. What a terrible service.

Check out process is fast. The reception is nice and help me to call taxi.
However the taxi driver ask for unreasonable fare, RM 40 for a a ride less than 15 minutes to Kota Kinabalu city??

Within walking distance of KK airport. Really friendly staff. We paid RM115 for one night/three people (Family Room), which we considered a great price for a room with all the basics: in-room shower & toilet. Fantastically comfortable bed and no extra charge for free shuttle services from or to aiport eventhough at mindnight.

Would definitely recommend and stay again!

Friendly reminder: The hotel is with second floors and without lift (Almost other hotel nearby there also without lift). You can put your luggage in the luggage room.
