A bit dirty, found rubbish below the bed and dust. Location is perfect. Room been renovated and look new and modern. Tv channel is bad compared to year 2007 (tv channel was clear) where i stayed almost every week here. I love the environment. Will come here again. Overall is good.
Because our flight arrived very early in the morning around 2am we booked this hotel before transfering to shangri-la, very bad smell in elevator, room and lobby smells like cigarette, but the breakfast is okay.
Good for just 1 night”
The hotel is kind of near the beach, yes, but there’s nothing more to do after going to the beach. The hotel’s restaurant is unreliable because the chef would go home in the middle of the day and you’ll have to take a Grab ride elsewhere to eat as there are no other establishments near this hotel. The staff did not help us order food as well, nor offer us any assistance when she told us the cook has gone home and that the restaurant will be closed til around 4. Stayed here 2 nights but felt like a 1-night stay would have been better. The bed and pillows all looked and felt old, really lumpy. The bathroom was moldy. The only nice thing abt this hotel is the balcony in the room.
Good value for money ”
During our stay here, the hotel underwent renovation. Therefore, everywhere was quite dusty. Our room was newly renovated but the bed and linens need to be changed. They looked very old. Hopefully there will be more improvements when we come back here next time.
Wonderful service ”
This hotel provides wonderful service. There’s free airport pick-up, and when we switch to a hotel downtown later they even drove us there free of charge. And it also comes with free breakfast. Every room has a nice balcony. The hotel is a only a few minutes’ walk to the beach. And for all that it only cost us 130 RMB for a room with twin beds. We are very happy with everything!
Good for staying one nyt if you have late flight”
I arrived at hotel around 2am. I was sorry to wake up the sleeping staff but I waked them up.. staff was fine but the room was messy and even lamps was out of order and dark.. but breakfast wasn’t so bad compared with bad things...anyway I just recommend if you arrive late nyt at the airport. And you cant be complained if you see the hotel price*****
Close to airport, friendly staff but cleanliness to be improved”
The hotel is 5 to 10 mins ride from airport. Ideal to stay for one night if you have late arrival and early flight to catch. Hotel room has some ants and is quite outdated, cleanliness to be improved.
Not a pleasant stay”
Room 402 family suite ~poor maintenance / room condition ~no light in MB (no ceiling light or wall light or table lamp) we used bathroom ~sink leaking = wet floor ~damage bathroom door ~bathroom ventilation fan not working ~bath tub tap broken ~No hand bidet - need use water pail/bucket ~poor service ~tv remote not well function
its situated just beside the perdana park, which makes us able to enjoy the beautiful colourful fountain at the evening. staffs are good, rooms are clean, located a lil bit far from the town, but has its own costumors parking and safe which me and my partner always go for. a lil bit noisy almost all the time because its situated nwar the international airport, but watching the landing of the aircrafts also makes this place stratigic by itself. we lived our stay here last january 2018 though they were under renovation at that time.
The price was cheap. Good for a budget travel. I think it's an old building, maybe with the way it looks from the room interior. It was clean. Soap and shampoo was provided. WiFi was fast. breakfast provided, although there is no choice, the two days of my stay I there is only toast and egg with sausages and baked beans. I had none to complain whatsoever.
I must say, although I was not satisfied during my first night staying here, the staff allowed me to change the room the next day. We supposed to be able to change it on the first night, but unfortunately their telephone wasn't in a working condition and we were super beat to even go downstairs and go through the hassle to complain. Day 2 and 3 went smooth. For the price I paid, compare to any other hotels there in Kota Kinabalu, this was somehow the kind of hotel a person like me and my mate were happy to pay and stay for a few days during our visit in Sabah. In general, it's an old hotel with old furnitures and finishes BUT given the price offered in Agoda.com and SUPER close to the beach, parking on site, quiet and peaceful (plus point for me because I hate staying close to the city due to the noise), this is a GOOD CATCH. I hope they have the opportunity to do a little upgrade to their property because I see potential! Pretty sure this was once a well-conditioned hotel.
Very Bad Room Facility”
I book 2 rooms rooms one for me and the other my friend. My room is fine, however my friend's room had ceiling peeling with black water mark around the area plus no mini fridge where as mine had. The pillow were thin and soft that sleeping on it is uncomfortable even stacking 2 at a go. When we ask for extra pillows they claim that it is chargeable..
Pros: - Near the airport - It was cheap - Spacious room -Room has balcony - Free airport pick up Cons: - Facility is very old, there were broken tiles in the comfort room and the door is broken - Breakfast is underwhelming
The driver and receptionist are all very good
Near to airport. They provided free shuttle service from/to airport which is easier for us.
Simple & Serene”
I shall return. Decent room, nice ambient, variety of birds parking on adjacent trees, nearby park with restaurants, walking distance to tanjung aru beach and witness amazing sunset, simple free breakfast and ample free parking space. You get your money's worth and more. Downside, no internet access to every room. If that happens, we will stay there for a month.
Airport shuttle @2am in the morning for pick up&4.30am for departure. They even packed the sandwiches for us becoz we would miss the breakfast as we needed to check out at 4.30am in the morning. We left my kid's shoes at the hotel room.but they kept it for us. Superb services though the hotel quite old.
Nice hotel near airport”
We spent a night here for transit and this hotel is near to the airport and tanjung aru beach and they provide airport pickup service. The hotel is clean and staff is nice. The bed is comfortable and we had a good night rest here. Value for money.
Comfort Convenience & Great Beach Location”
We loved this little place a gem in the middle of a backpacker area and the 5 star luxury resrt of Shangri-La down the road. It is about 20 minutes in a 30-40 ringgot taxi ride from the airport to the J___ Aru beach area, and it is amazing with small rooms with great AC or breezes, little frige, TV with a few channels, but the staff and breakfast are hearty and at good times, and the SHUTTLE is amazing when you need to go somewhere at any time. This is a great deal and they really try to help and please you for a great budget price. The beach area has a great street food and small local sunset bar area that is a 5 minute walk, then the street food and smoothies are amazing and so cheap! Then we played golf 5 minutes away - where our window terrace view overlooked the Kota Kinabalu Golf Course and then we walked 10 minutes past the KK Yacht Club to the Shangri-La Resort with pools, massages and great restaurants that are AMAZING luxury and prices and value. It is 150 ringgots to use all the facilities for the day there but we had lunch and stayed at the side pool, with a beach and a HUGE kids water park - but we paid great cheap prices at our Casaurina Hotel and loved it all. This was a super trip and a great little place to stay that gives you a mid-level luxury experience with all your needed amenities with a price that is 10% of the big VIP resorts. Well worth it and we will be back! - Kierstan and Tom Dwyer, Shanghai and USA
