A very pleasant surprise, this new boutique hotel has much to offer. Rooms are spacious (ours didn't have an external window, but we didn't mind) and well-appointed. The bathroom was nice and large. The rooms do need a sofa of some sort, however. We also found the service very good - the people were friendly and helpful. It even has a coffee shop attached which makes passable cappuccinos, not always forthcoming in Borneo (but then again, that's not why one goes there). The location is perfect, in the oldest street in town (on the waterfront) and easy walking distance to many of the main attractions.
