“Had a few comfortable and cheap nights here”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

The hotel is in a good location, is cheap and comfortable and the breakfast is nice.

Room Tip: The lift can take a while. Get a room on a lower floor.

The rooms are brilliant, clean, large and very comfortable. I think we had some of best nights sleep staying here on our holiday around Borneo. My friend and I were traveling around Borneo and this place was excellent value for money compared to other places we stayed in. We paid 60RM for a twin bedroom with AC, private bathroom, 2 bottles of water and free internet. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were very clean. We found the staff helpful here, they were happy for my friend to have a package delivered here and to help arrange transport to places etc. They offer a laundry service and the clothes come back VERY clean! The location is very good, only a few blocks back from the water front just across the road from the Sandakan Hotel. We only ate breakfast at the hotel restaurant and it was really good. It is a basic hotel but it is great value for money and I highly recommend it!

We initially planned to book Hotel Sandakan but we decided to walk in to ask for a quote since this hotel is directly across the street. Only RM68 a night for a double room with AC, we could careless if the lobby is 5 times smaller than Hotel Sandakan. Besides, this hotel comes with free access to PC with internet connection! Overall, the room we had was clean however we were given a smoking room (and we were too lazy to change). The location is right nearby the Central Market and bus terminal. The staffs are extremely friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for non-smoking if that's your preferece

Nice room with big window, fresh painted walls, TV, towels, soap/shampoo, AC, fridge, 2 bottles water, wifi, and bathroom with glass shower door. Not spotlessly clean but decent. Good value and you get what’s advertised with no fuss. The people and value here are much better than the Seafront hotel where I was originally going to stay. I’d stay here again and Sandakan isn’t as bad a town as everyone seems to think.

Hotel was in a great location and was great value for money. Breakfast was not included in our room price but for A$6.00 for both of us we didn't care. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms are airconditioned and have cable tv and are very clean.
