Stayed one night in Winner Hotel - one night too long. It is advertised as a three star hotel but the claim cannot be justified. If a proper assessment were carried out by the hotel authorities, this hotel would be classed as a one star. The room is quite small, dirty carpets, and one had to stand on the bed to adjust the AC which is from the last century. Part of the hallway does not meet any building codes I am familiar with being less than a metre wide. In any emergency it would be difficult for two people to pass each other; for example, a fireman coming in and a fleeing guest trying to get out. While it is central that's all that can be said about it.

I wasn't a huge fan of this hotel. First, let me start with the good parts. The front desk staff was rather nice and the checkin process was smooth. Additionally the breakfast, while nothing special, was adequate; however they seemed to be out of sausage and pancakes by the time that we got down there. Those were the best parts of staying in this hotel.

After checkin we went up to our room on the 3rd floor and were blasted by the disgusting smell of durian. It appeared that they were attempting to air out one particular room but that was making the entire floor smell terrible. Our room was rather small and the somewhat heavy door managed to stick every time. The bathroom was quite tiny even compared to the ones we recently saw in Singapore. For a visual, you could literally turn the sink on while sitting on the toilet.

Needless to say we only stayed one night.

Although the rooms are on the average small, they were clean and rather comfortable. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Good central location as it is walking distance from the shopping mall, the esplanade and many seafood restaurants. The room comes with set breakfast (western or local). If you looking more food, there is a 24 hour KFC fast food outlet just around the corner, the coffee shop just a few doors away has nice char kway teow (fried flat rice noodles) and the coffee shop at the lane just behind the hotel offers a variety of local food as well. There is also a 24 hour convenience shop just a few doors away. I will mostly book this hotel when I visit Kota Kinabalu as it is safe, cosy, affordable, convenient and has free wifi as well as two hotel lifts.

Room Tip: Good if you check on the working condition of the air-conditioning in your room when you first check in.

Service and staff helpful and friendly, rooms small and very 3 star, but for the country it was ok. Location not bad, walk to shops and waterfront for restaurants like mai Yai which is fantastic for food and grog. Winner hotel tried to accomodate early breakers if going on tour or leaving.

Booked for this hotel for a night. But after check-in and went in the room. We were welcome with very unpleasant smell (maybe by the carpet) and the bath room is very dirty. It needs renovation and painting. Location is a bonus for this hotel and breakfast is provided.
