King Park Hotel Kota Kinabalu
Ranked #61 of 92 Hotels in Kota Kinabalu
Reviewed 15 July 2011

A slightly tired hotel - we stayed as part of a tour so can't comment on price.
Handy to the fish restuarants and water front.
Coffee is awful :-)

Checked into this hotel aftrer checking out of a really terrible one just up the road. Asked to see room first and they were happy to show us. Even gave us a discount on the room rate. Pleasant two night stay. Able to store luggage on the last day at no charge. Self serve buffet breakfast and friendly staff in hotel

a decent room except that the wifi signal is abit weak.
front desk staff is helpful
breakfast selection is limited but ok with the pricing you paid for.
15 mins walk away from town area.
5 min drive from the hotel to town - RM10
if you want to save money on cab fare, stay in Le Hotel (budget)

The hotel is alright - good for the price.
Our first night here the air con leaked all over their vinyl seat in the room - was rather annoying but the hotels problem.
The food was about the same (good selection) as elsewhere we stayed in Borneo.
Minor point - I found it rude that the staff had to check our room on checked out (there is no mini bar).

A great hotel generally means a comfortable stay; regardless of how old or new the place is. I had the superior room, so can't comment on the standard ones. They are clean and tidy, spic and span, plus it has a great view - which is a bonus for those spectacular KK sunsets. I rate the breakfast as above average; considering after a horrid one from a previous hotel the day before. Nothing like a good breakfast to start a wonderful day with - get a bad breakfast and it might ruin the rest of the day. The Niagara Falls-like shower will wash every microscopic dirt from your body. (Tip: the shower flow is adjustable to avoid any shower drownings...)

The only qualm I have was the lady at reception wasn't particularly friendly or welcoming - but thats just one individual who probably woke up on the wrong side of the bed that day but I would still recommend this place and happy to return.

We booked through booking.com and the price is reasonable for a 3-star hotel (around RM160/night). When we checked in, the front desk told us that all their superior non-smoking rooms with king size beds were all taken, so we have to get a smoking room. The smoking room (room 305) was okay, except that the room smelled like cigarette smoke and you can slightly hear the cars outside considering it was a room on lower levels of the hotel. One thing I learned is to keep the aircon cold enough and this will keep the cigarette odors away. At around 3am, I woke up because of the dripping sound, only to find out that the aircon was leaking.

I reported it the next morning to the front desk and we asked to move to a room on a higher floor. We asked the lady to reserve the room since we will arrive at 5pm from our scuba diving trip and when we got back, they gave us a room on 11th floor (room 1101), non-smoking and far from the lift. The room has a nice view of the city and the sea and the aircon doesn't leak. The bedroom is big enough for two to move around, and the bed is a good-sized king bed. I must say that the bathroom is too small, I have a small built and I have trouble using the shower because the shower room is too darn small. Too bad, I forgot to take pictures :(

On our last day, the key is not working so I went up and down the hotel 3 times to have the front desk check, only to find out that the door lock was busted. It was fixed right away, no problems.

The room includes breakfast buffet, but if you are a cornflakes-in-the-morning type of person, don't expect them to serve milk and cereals. Breakfast buffet is mostly curry, fried rice and fried chicken, "mee" noodles and 3 kinds of fruits. I didn't see any pork, even the sausage is chicken. No big deal, I don't eat pork anyway. There is a nearby 24-hour KFC if you don't like the breakfast.

We asked for laundry service but it is not good. The clothes don't smell like freshly washed so I don't recommend their laundry service. They also don't do airport pickup (as advertised in booking.com). We called the hotel when we arrived at the airport and the front desk informed us they do not offer it anymore. Taxi fare is only RM30 to and from the airport. The hotel is a tad far from the sea and market, but still within a good 10-minute walk to establishments like restaurants, souvenir shops and Centrepoint mall but I consider it a good feature because the hotel is nice and quiet at night. But you won't mind the walk especially at night when the air is cold and pollution-free.

The hotel crew is nice and friendly, with good English skills. Each room has a mini-fridge and cabled (not wireless) hi-speed internet. Hi-speed because we got 1Mbps speed while browsing, ask the front desk for a patch cable. You can ask them to flag down a taxi for you or you can approach them for directions.

All in all, King Park Hotel is a nice 3-star hotel, reasonably priced, and excellent location. Don't lose your sense, though. Ask them for directions and taxi fares so you won't get into trouble!
