      Great hotel and beautiful room”
      Clean room, good quality interior and finishing, friendly service, has a good lift, in a great location, good price.
      Hotel centrally located within walking distance to the market, food places, bus stands, shopping malls and the waterfront. The room was very clean, its interior finishing was of high quality. The staff were knowledgable, friendly and helpful. My only bad comment is that the bed I slept in seemed a wee bit too short since I could feel my feet having hung out at the end a few times when I lengthened them fully when I was almost to the top it, even though I am not really a very long person. All in all an excellent hotel for the price.

      The wall of the room is so thin, you can hear your neighbor's conversation from the adjacent room. Overall, the hotel provide good service and we will definitely going to stay there on our next visit to Sandakan.

      Helpful & friendly reception.
      Centrally located. However, as we reach there on Sunday morning, the local Sunday Market namely "tamu" was held in front of the hotel and therefore the road was closed for vehicles & we got to walk about 100m to the hotel. Luckily we we were on light luggage.

      Good value for money but a few drawbacks”
      Very cheap, TV had a variety of channels including a film channel
      This hotel was really very cheap, so any revue needs to take into consideration the hotel's "budget" status. On this basis it represented good value for money. The room was spacious and clean, the shower worked and there was hot water. The air-coniditioning worked fine too. There was a working television with a number of channels including a film channel. Having said that, my room was, in fact, windowless, which was slightly unpleasant and, during the day there was some quite noisy drilling going on.

      I wouldn't ask much for the price that I paid. Location wise is super strategic near town. However, alot of shops close after 5.30 pm on ward. Very near to Ba Lin restaurant which is a nice plan to hangout and for dinner. Nearby some local supermarket as well.

      valued for money, at city centre and got lift
      I stay here two years before and i was very statisfy with it that time. Unfortunately the hotel condition was poor when i stay at this hotel for second time. First of all, the staff at the counter not so friendly, they not mind people's feeling and keep on asking that how many people is staying in a room although i hv ans them. It is very bad attitude. Next, when i enter both room i booked, the room is full of a type of smell. That smell make my friends cannot stay comfortablely in the room. Besides that, the fasilities in the bathroom was so lausy, the water opener in a standard room was not functioning well.The worst thing i feel is that i saw a cockroach in my room, i cannot accept it, so terrible. I won stay in this hotel anymore.

We actually checked in in the middle of the night and the staff was awaken from his sleep however he served us immediately and attentively even though he couldn't find my agoda booking sheet due to the fact that I had just booked through agoda a couple of hours ago and it hasn't been processed yet.

      Best hotel in SE Asia!”
      Clean, safe, helpful staff
      Central Hotel is the cleanist hotel I have stayed in in SE Asia. We had two superior rooms, both were clean with comfortable beds and good showers. Our rooms were serviced daily. The staff are extremely helpful, and speak fantastic english. Sandakan itself is a dirty rathole, but unfortunately is a must stop for tourists to Borneo so it is a great feeling being able to go back to a clean, safe hotel room after a long hot day. I totally recommend this hotel to all, especially for the exceptional price!!
