    Cititel Express kota kinabalu”

    The hotel is surrounded by eateries, massage place and convenient store. Clean room and the best is, it is non smoking hotel. There is also a 24hr self service laudry store. Walking distance to Filipino market where u can eat delicious seafood. Opposite Filipino market, there is a night market where they sell almost the same item at Filipino market and is cheaper.

    Great! But Did Not Get Wake-Up Call”

    The compact, minimalistic and cooperative-style concept at the price point is very attractive. The only letdown was that the morning wake-up call arranged the night before never arrived and I almost missed my flight. Quite confident I didn't snooze through the wake-up call, if there was one.

    Good location and money for value in Cititel Express KK”

    This hotel is conveniently located in the midst of eateries and shopping centres. The established Welcome Seafood is just across the small road with many choices of seafood and reasonable price. Shopping centres such as Centre Point Mall and KK Mall, local market and Sunday Market are just a short walk from the hotel. Convenient stores are also readiy available in the vicinity. The hotel is also value for money and the breakfast has many choices of noodle, rice, vegetables, chicken, fruits and coffee and tea. The hotel stall are also polite and efficient although not very flexible in allowing the guests to use the canteen for their own food consumption after operating hours. Overall I rate this hotel as good and would like to recommend couples and families to stay in this hotel.

    Centrally located hotel that gets all the necessary stuff for travellers right. Surprised by the harsh overall rating - I stayed at two other places in KK that had better ratings and Cititel was better by a mile. Not too spacious but clean and provides everything I look for in a hotel.

    Location is good and reasonably priced. Many food options (famous Welcome Seafood Restaurant is within walking distance) and convenient stores nearby. However, room size is a little small and walls are thin where noise from next door occupants can sometimes be heard.
