3 Days 2 Nights Stay @ Pantai Inn Kota Kinabalu
Would say the best thing about Pantai Inn is the strategic location, walking distance to Padang Merdeka Bus Terminal, Sunday market & etc. I would say the price is a little overpriced for the room condition that I had. There's a Chinese restaurant beside this hotel - Restaurant Thien Thien. Very convenient for those who stays here. Food and price here are reasonable. I believe this restaurant is Halal as there's many Muslim customers visiting this restaurant. As for the room condition, I would say its below my expectation. I got a room which doesn't have a cover seat for WC - first time encountered such situation in my life. Found out the towel provided have dirty stains. Not sure if there's bed bugs but my feet felt itchy. No slipper provided too. Other than that, the AC and water heater are working fine.
