“Ok”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

Only stay for a short time.

I dont think people go to KK for the city.. so you'd want a decent hotel with a pool or close to the beach.
We stayed here 2 nights before we did the Mt Kinabalu climb.
Luckily it wasn't longer because we got pretty bored.
It's just a hotel nothing special about it .. free shuttle bus but only runs at 10am or 4pm none in the middle of the day and it's about 15min walk to town or a RM15 taxi.

Breakfast was average nothing good.

Better off paying extra for a resort with pool if staying for a few days.
Is ok for a night or 2

I would clasify this as a 3-4 star hotel, very clean, No Smell, and quiet hotel. Staff were absolutely professional and very prompt with all my requests. I stayed here twice with a 2 day gap and they stored my luggage at No Charge, printed boarding passes. There is a shuttle to Centre shopping center and another shopping center near Jesselton Harbour = Free drop off and Pick up....I would stay here again. No restaurant or fitness or swimming pool.
NB: It is close to Asia, Muslim and Filipino market. and the shuttle even takes you close to it.

Room Tip: I stayed in a king bed superior room booked on line. It was cheaper than physically going into the h...

we book this hotel but we checked the reviews first, after series of reading so we decided to go for it. the room is huge and the ambiance is very nice. actually i congratulate my hubby for booking this hotel. although the wifi dont works that much sometimes ok sometimes not. we had a great time staying in this hotel. just the breakfast, its not competitive compare to other hotel with the same standards. i hope they can do something about it make it a mixture of something. because we noticed that they focus on chinese cuisine and the other options are bread pork and beans noodles and some sort of chinese stuff. so hope they could fix it soon. but the room i mean its superb and the bed! sometimes they forgot to throw the garbage of the other bin so to make sure take them out and place them to somewhere that can easily notice. the location is ok well we can walk from the mall there is also a small flea market nearby but no restaurants around to much better if you will buy food and bring it to the hotel. the nearby flea market have kfc and mcdonalds and others so you can just walk there. they have a schedule of free shuttle service so just take a not of that. staff are friendly and helpful with all the requests and also inquiries. we will try this hotel again if we will come back in KK.

Room Tip: just make a plan of what are the things that you will do a head of time.

Very impressed with the room quality for the price you pay. Rooms are new, well appointed with contemporary fittings, comfy bed, rain water shower head. Hotel is clean. Staff were super helpful. Its a little bit of a hike into the centre of town, however they do provide complimentary shuttles at regular intervals. Plenty of places to eat around the hotel also!

The only drawback was the quality of the internet connection. Not expecting the world, but connection was patchy at best.. dropped in and out quite a bit, despite quite a strong signal.

Would recommend without hesitation!

10 mins by car from city centre, but the hotel provides regular shuttle services into the city. Friendly hotel personnel providing great information around the area. Nicely decorated hotel rooms. Given their rates, it would be difficult to find a hotel with better value in KK.

Would highly recommend.

We stayed at the Oceania hotel in December 2013 for a couple of days. Overall, our experience was good. Staff were friendly and polite. Rooms were clean and well-maintained and certainly roomy enough. Wifi was spotty and slow. The bed was hard as a rock and uncomfortable. A/C worked just fine.

The restaurant, Catch 22, was the worst part about the stay. Only a few things on their menu were actually available - most weren't. Very little seasoning was used - most dishes lacked even salt. One dish we had two days in a row. The first day it was 1/3 the amount of food as on the second day, which had many other ingredients added. And we were charged the same price both days. I understand that restaurants run out of things, but this was far beyond that. It was as if they kept only a few things in stock and if they ran out, oh well who cares. It was also overpriced for what we got. But we ate there anyway for convenience sake. If you can, eat elsewhere.

This hotel is quite new so you will not find a nicer looking hotel for 50 USD per night in KK. The rooms are small but they are really clean and have a good layout and great 'underwater' art : ) the shower is a rain shower and the tiles are a gorgeous aqua colour. The water pressure is good, everything was in working order. My room was cleaned everyday. the service was good and friendly as well. the Staff speak english well ( which is not the case everywhere in Borneo ) and they are really helpful. If you are traveling on a budget then look no further.

In terms of food and restaurants, it is limited around here but the hotel provides a free shuttle into the city so its still convenient to stay here and its worth if for the price and friendly service.
