Reviewed 21 October 2012

The window opened into a wall cavity and just let smoke into our small and quite claustrophobic room. Average service, average to poor breakfast. Not a good start to our time in Borneo. Saving grace we a good, central location.

Spent 5 days 4 nights, good location and the staff very friendly. Late checked-in are acceptable as I arrived at late night. Only room is too small for 2 persons, and a bit noisy at night for a good sleep. Its good place for those people who do a lots of outing activities and very near to Scuba diving office.

Noisy & musty rooms on the 1st floor above a Karaoke bar that blasted bad music until the early hours.

No window made it seem like a prison cell.

The only redeeming factor was the location. The only bad hotel on an amazing Borneo experience.

Good location near to shops, restaurants, pier for catching boat to islands and market. Clean rooms but was woken daily by the phone in hallway for cleaners that does not stop ringing. If that did not wake you you would be woken by either people slamming doors around 6am or a worker starting their work early. Breakfast was good with lots of variety. Requested take away breakfast due to early flight only to be disappointed in morning when it had not been ordered. Was not given an apology or offered food from the room service menu that was available 24hrs.

Spent 1 night before getting picked up by Amazing Borneo tours to go climb the Mount Kota Kinabalu and also spent 1 night there when we came back (sore and hurting from the climb)

Place is clean, rooms are very clean and nice, front desk staff is very good and late check-ins are accepted at no charge (depending on availability)

Restaurant downstairs (outside) is not that great though and quiet pricy compared to the surrounding area.

This hotel is situated in one of the best locations in Kota Kinabalu. The rooms are spacious, with cable, but the view from the rooms, not so interesting. There is a lift for your comfort, the front reception people are very polite and very courteous. The breakfast is nothing to rave about, (no bacon even for Western guests) toast, waffles, omelets and other egg dishes cooked fresh at the counter. The coffee is the best I have tasted in months and they do have sweeteners for diabetics, a courtesy some of the other hotels should consider. The Kinabalu Daya is a 3-star hotel, and the price is very reasonable.

Room Tip: Give it a try if this is the type of accommodation you desire or require.
