        Easy access to shopping areas”

        Location, value for money, comfort

        There are a number of boutique hotels within Warisan Complex and I personally feel that in terms of value for money, Celyn City definitely is the best one. It is a few minutes walking distance from the popular Centrepoint shopping mall and also the popular bazaar area. The hotel itself does not provide any breakfast, BUT there are numerous places all around the hotel where you can eat (and pretty cheap too!). For a boutique hotel, we were actually quite surprised that the room was in good condition, the bed was comfortable (although slightly small), and room amenities were provided. But then again, the block that we stayed in was previously of Myne Hotel, which Celyn City had recently taken over. Nevertheless, we always stay here everytime we are in KK for its value and location.

        Good Location, Walking distance to Shopping areas”

        Our 1st stay at Celyn City Hotel. We arrived around 5pm by road from Brunei. Our Rooms were ready. Good location for shopping.. few steps from Centrepoint which is across of the Hotel Lobby. Walking distance to Oceanus.. and we walked to Suria sabah too.. crossing KK Plaza.. Sinsuran..Segama and Wisma Merdeka... Pasar Pilipin for Pearls and Coffee tenom (pusu and udang kering too) are just within walking distance... However, with the rapidly increasing number of travellers from Brunei who drive to KK.. appreciate if Celyn could provide more Parking space.. as we sometimes hve to wait for Customers who dine in at the Indian Restaurant to finish their meal and go before we could take the parking space... other than that.. no complain. Staff were friendly and helpful!!

        Staffs are amazing. Facilities are worth what I was paying for which for me was easy on my budget (iron & iron board upon request, hair dryer, daily change of towels & bedding set, hot/warm shower, water heater & excellent air conditioner) Location was perfect but, the hotel is getting shabby which in urgent need of renovation. Whenever I am in Kota Kinabalu, I will always stay here no matter how shabby it gets. Cleanliness upon first day entering, it was 5/10 but personally it was bearable. Hopefully, in the near future, this hotel will have its' make over that it derserved & I would not mind paying more.

        Easy access to the airport, restaurants and bars

        The Celyn City hotel is located within walking distance of the bus terminal for departures south of KK and also closer to the airport than more central hotels. The hotel itself is fine and comfortable we were on the 4th floor however so couldn't access the wifi. It's a decent choice if you're getting the bus to KK from Menombok, Tenom or Papar etc and then flying out which we were.

        Price, cleanliness and closeness to a variety of restaurants.

        A last minute change to travel plans left us ineeding a hotel quickly,the Celyn City was available so we booked one night, and eventually stayed three. The staff were friendly and efficient and the room whilst small was comfortable and clean with an efficient and quiet air conditioner, which is a must. There are no meals served at the hotel but it is surrounded by numerous restaurants catering for many tastes. Access to the "ground floor" lift is up 12 steps from pavement level, which may be an issue for some. Wirless Internet performance from room was poor, from reception area it was OK.

        The room that reserved for me was facing to the sea view. Even the windows are small but the receptionalist did what she could to provide the best room that've got.

        The overall comment is good! The hotel is located in the city of KK and very easy to get around sea side and restaurants. The city centre of KK is not very big and certainly can explore on foot. Hotel is clean, no smell, tidy and functional. The best thing is having free internet access at all time. I reserved a level above standard room so that it equipped with Windows. It could be the case I booked for nearly a week and the receptionist tried her best to keep a room on the 5/F where can see the seaview. It was great! Overall the hotel in/out is not noisy and very reasonable consider the price to paid.

        This is a simple and clean hotel, centrally located near shopping area and local city attraction. Easy to move around during night time, very close to the night life area of Kota Kinabalu. The only bad impression about the hotel was the staff performance, where i was served by an arrogant and unfriendly old lady with long hair in plait during my check-in. As a staff who serve in the front desk, she was just lack of smile and have very little sense of customer service.

        Consider a budget range hotel include breakfast with price over RM127.00, I think their asking price is over value around 20%. There is no facilities include gym room, swimming pool or fridge refrigerator. Beside the hotel shoplot got three restaurant during night, but their price is also slightly expensive then the area around. It is nearby Filipino market and a big seafood restaurant such as Hua Hing Air-Conditioned Seafood Restaurant. Another drawback is, you need to carry up your luggage above one level before you can use a lift!!

        City Centre, Easy access to transport, Budget

        I booked a superior room via agoda 5days prior to my travel. And the day before i called them up to inform my later arrival(after6pm). I arrived at kota kinabalu at 5pm and proceeded to checkin at about 6pm. Upon arrival at the hotel i provided the booking details and they took a good 10mins only to inform me that all rooms are fully booked!!! They suggested to transfer me to another branch which is off the town. I mean how is this possible? I booked it 5days ago and i even called up to inform my late arrival... So this is not a valid excuse. They then managed to get us a room which was supposedly an upgrade from what i paid for. But few of the light in the room was not functioning. So was the toilet. The flush was broke so we had to pull the flush manually.. This is the first time ever i was disappointed staying in a hotel in kota kinabalu which was booked via agoda.
