Greet by polite staff upon check in, and ice-cooling welcome drink been given while waiting for the room to be ready. We have got upgraded for free to better room type. Big room with fantastic ocean view and a clean bathtub attached bathroom. Very comfy bed and plenty of TV shows to choose. Will definitely stay again.

Spacious room with friendly service

Friendly staff
7.3
Overall, the service is good. The only hiccup is that the additional bed was not fixed upon check in even though the request was made during online booking. As such we have to call the housekeeping many times requesting to fix extra bed, extra towel, extra toothbrush, extra pillow, extra mineral water.

Nice hotel, great service, great location

Love the breakfast. Nice view from hotel room
9.7
One of my preferred hotel in kota kinabalu. It is located just outside the busy boundary of kk city centre. Basically you are outside from the busiest part of the town yet you still can walk by foot to the city cemtre and by car, it only took 2 minutes (this because of the traffic light). The service is great, the staff is doing the best that they can to provide comfort. The room is spacious. The room is clean but it look a bit old. There is a nice view from our hotel window. We can see the busy kk town center and at the same time we can see the beautiful view of mount kinabalu. The breakfast is nice. There is a lot of variety to choose from. The restaurant environment somehow make me feel like i am home. Maybe because i have stay in this hotel quite a few time already. I love the lobby environment. The tapai lounge provide variety of drinks and nice relaxing music. You would definitely need to go the bar and relax with your family. I would highly recommend this hotel for family or couple who just want to relax yet at the same time want an easy access to town center.
Hotel Feature Tip: they provide car park which cost per day but free for in house guest at their basememt. there is no elevator from the car park to the hotel lobby so need to climb a few steps of stairs.

Good value slightly older hotel

Large rooms reasonably priced.
6.7
the sabah oriental is an older property on the edge of kota kinabalu's cbd - meaning it is a 10 minute walk or 2 minute taxi ride to the waterfront restaurants and shops. the staff are friendly and helpful, though the one question i asked the in-house travel and tour organiser about railway timetables was met with an indifferent shrug of the shoulders. the hotel has seen slightly better days and a manifestation is the bathroom, where the shower control as an 80s style control device that allows you to select only the temperature, not the rate of water flow - which just blasts out. not that i minded. the choice for breakfast is reasonable. out of curiosity, i tried the saturday night buffet and it was not very exciting, though some freshly barbecued chicken satays were tasty. the outdoor swimming pool is quite small and always seemed to be in use. overall, the hotel was competitively priced. given that the room rate is quite modest, the hotel was reasonable value for money.
Restaurant Tip: If you like Chinese food, go to the 4th floor of the main shopping centre and find the '5 Star Hainese Pork & Duck' restaurant tucked away in a back corridor. The food is amazingly cheap - barbecue pork + rice is US $2.50 and everything comes with a complimentary bowl of soup. It is always crowded, you sit on a stool at a table that you might have to share with others and there is no decor. But the food is great! And the freshly squeezed orange juice is absolutely freshly squeezed and is served cold, with extra ice cubes - delicious.

Nice Exterior but worn inside

Low price and you can expect the same with hotel amenities
4
A large, older hotel with very low occupancy, with mainly South Asian guests. Website indicated many features eg. pool, internet, massage, sauna. Do not expect any quality at breakfast and rooms on upper floors have a mildew odour. Good location, away from the traffic and much quieter area than other downtown hotels. Do stroll at the new river walk, behind the hotel road to see locals spend time in leisure.
Hotel Feature Tip: Ask nicely for simple requests eg. shuttle ride, early checkin and you will receive!
