4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2007

We booked on short notice as we were just spending one night. Decent rooms, good service. Its a little expensive for Sabah.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night before going to Lankayan. I checked in at 10am without problem and got upgraded from a Junior Suite to a Honeymoon Suite. Rooms are well maintained and equipped, and most importantly clean. Its location is very central, being about 200m from the tourist information and on the heritage trail.
This is not a luxury hotel, but a good 3 star standard. For the price it is excellent value and more than adequate for a 1 or 2 night stay whilst visiting the sights around Sandakan.

We spent one night at Hotel Sandakan and although the location of the hotel is adequate and the staff was very friendly, I probably would not stay there again. We originally booked a double room and they gave us a twin room (apparently, all the double were taken), the food was of very poor quality and I would not recommend to anybody to eat there. The room could have been bigger but it was adequate for one night only.

  • Liked — the staff
  • Disliked — the food
  • Tips/Secrets — no alcohol is being served at the hotel
